Sampled on 1/8/2010. This Biere de Garde pours a medium orange gold color from a 75cl swing-top bottle. Medium to small sized white foamy head. The aroma is fruity and sweet, with a touch of honey. A medium bodied Biere de Garde. The malts are caramel, fruity and sweet. The hops are earthy. Nice balance. Slightly sweet. A very drinkable, but not remarkable winter ale. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly sweet

Aroma of bready malts, caramel, herbs, sugary notes, raisins. Flavour is sweet, a bit too sweet for my taste. Overall unimpressed. thebeertourist (5188) - Oslo, NORWAY - DEC 4, 2010
Bottle from Cave à Bulles. Hazy ruby red colour. Complex spicy nose followed by cinnamon and other spices as well as berry flavours. Well-balanced, hints of sourness. Very accomplished- the spices augment rather than distract. Dickinsonbeer (5073) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - MAY 5, 2010
Bottle RBWG 2010. Pours a nice medium amber with a low to mod carb and a medium to small head- lasting. Aroma is nutty, toasty and earth with some moderate caramel sweetness and light herbal phenolic yeastiness. Flavor is earth, toast, herbs light nuttiness, some honey sweetness and a good fresh doughiness and lightly burnt bread with good grassy bitter hop finish- nice.

0.75 l bottle. Amber color with fading head. Sweetish aroma with toffee, dark caramel, berries, vanilla, lemon, some tartness, some fruitiness and some musty notes of cellar. Sweetish caramelly, toffeish, musty and slightly metallic flavor with raisins and figs. A bit too sweet and full bodied, the biere de garde aromas and flavors are masked. Although mustiness is typical for biere de gardes, here the musty character is kind of dull. travita (5008) - Dallas, Texas, USA - MAR 1, 2010
Bottle thanks to bu11zeye. The look is copper colored with a beige colored head. The smell is sweet, some alcohol, fruits, and malts. The taste is just about the same. jbrus (4988) - Delft, NETHERLANDS - JAN 2, 2010
