COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our Limited Edition Biere d’ Hougoumont is brewed with traditional French ale yeast, eight malts, French Strisselspalt hops, and aged on white oak and hard maple wooden staves. A traditional Biere De Garde style, this malty French-style farmhouse ale is brewed to be aged. The name honors the Hougoumont farmstead at the pivotal center of the Waterloo battlefield. Napoleon repeatedly failed to take the fortification, he then lost the battle and “met his Waterloo.”

Trev (2023) - Lakeville, Minnesota, USA - MAR 20, 2014
Copper pour thin head. Aroma is gingerbread, apple fruit. Pear, plum... Almond, toast, plum and apple fruit. Flavour I can dig it. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

ABUSEDGOAT (2783) - California, USA - FEB 8, 2014
Hazy darker orange color, moderate head, good lace/retention. Aroma is yeast, lightly spiced, caramel. Medium bodied, alcohol hidden well, very drinkable. Yeast only plays a minor role relative to most BDG beers but it’s still present.

Sweet honey aroma and amber gold color with a sweet funk flavor and no bitter finish. Another ommegang that doesn’t disappoint.

icehawk (834) - Mount Pleasant, South Carolina, USA - JAN 11, 2014
Draft. Dusty, earthy aroma. Taste follows aroma, starting a bit dusty then finishing with an earthy bitterness. Drinks like something left a bit too long in the cellar.

alexsdad06 (10578) - West Chester, Ohio, USA - JAN 3, 2014
750 ml bottle shared by Tmoney99 (2012). Pours a hazy, coppery amber color with a medium sized off white head. The aroma has sweet toasted malt, fruity notes, light herbs and spices, a hint of wood. The flavor had lightly toasted bread, doughy, candylike sweetness, some spices and lightly fruity. The wood is mild at the finish. Medium body. Not for me at this price point.

Beergeek23322 (2602) - Chester, Virginia, USA - DEC 11, 2013
8/25/2012. 750 ml. corked and caged bottle. Light orange color with an off-white head. Aromas of Belgian yeast, wheat, bread, spices and malt. Herbal flavors with honey, malt, and light fruit.

3.4
dmac (6387) - Toms River, New Jersey, USA - DEC 8, 2013
Draft sample at NY Winter Beerfest. Poured a clear honey orange with an average frothy light beige head. Aroma of flowers, potpuri, honey and dough. Thinner body with strong carbonation. Flavor of bread, crusts, flower petals, honey, citrus rind and grass. Not bad.

3.6
glennmastrange (2896) - hobe sound, Florida, USA - DEC 4, 2013
Bottle. Moderate aromas all around, with grain and cereal for the malt, orange for the hops, dough for the yeast, with date and brown sugar in the background. Head is small, frothy, off-white with no lacing and is fully diminishing. Color is hazy medium amber/orange. Flavor starts lightly sweet and lightly to moderately acidic, then finishes lightly acidic and moderately bitter. Palate is medium, watery with a fizzy carbonation and a moderately alcoholic finish. Fuller and fruitier than most other Biere de Gardes, but that just makes a more easier drinking beer.

3.1
Sammy (12491) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 4, 2013
A subtle member of the style, Randy’s bottle. It’s in the finish, light colour and decent drinkability. Less than average mouthfeel.
