AndyAle (6) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - SEP 8, 2013 does not count
Tastes like carmelized marshmallow, clarity brilliant, aroma complex esters, overall... Bottom of the server, awesome, that’s what a true bier de garde wants to be

A golden ale with a thick lacing off white head. In aroma, a nice fruity malt with herbal notes, cream, orange pulp. In mouth, a nice sweet malt with orange peels, bananas, weizen like. Nice.

Draft at Apex in Portland. That’s right, Portland. Oregon. Seriously. Cloudy amber color, white edge head. Aroma of dusty sweet straw. Taste is similar.

TheAlum (7164) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - JUN 24, 2013
Draft on tap at the brewpub (Chicago, IL). Pours a richer deep amber pour, well hazed with frothy offwhite head, dies to a film, laces ok and froths as a filmy layer. Aromas offer gentle sweetness, some fruity esters, gentle spice and yeastiness grows as it warms, some mellow clove, bready and doughy malts. Initial is medium bodied, a bit more full than expected. Apple, pear, doughy malt elements mix with Belgian yeasty, some spice, and deccent sweetness. Mellow spice, some dryness, a touch of girth into the middle. A touch sweet, some girthiness. Solid, a bit sweet and big for me. Meh.

deyholla (12439) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - MAY 19, 2013
On tap at the brewpub. Pours a hazy amber with a tan head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has a note of light sweet grains with a touch of light fruit and a hint of Belgian yeast. Flavor has a lot of light fruit and floral with a backbone of caramel and Belgian spice.

pdx77 (1483) - Oregon, USA - MAY 12, 2013
On draught at Apex. Cloudy dark golden color. Yeasty aroma of dark cherry. Flavor of bubblegum, cherry, yeast. Sweeter than a typical bière de garde, but good nonetheless.

3.5
ryanscourt (1546) - Latrobe, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 5, 2013
Spicy, sweet summer fruit. Tastes like summer. Very pleasant. Slight alcohol finish. Nice offering. Tastes very fresh and lively.
