Desverger (9671) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAR 8, 2016
[email protected], Copenhagen - fuzzy golden coloured pour with white head. Aroma and taste is a mix of citrus fruits and banana, some floral and light grassy hoppy action, white bready malts, yeasty, some honey sweetness coming in, light fruity spice in the finish.

MartinT (9592) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 30, 2008
My Bottom Line:
This amenable Bière de Garde proposes honeyed biscuits and herbal, peppery hops in a refreshing show of balance and quaffability.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A veil of foam covers the clear dark golden.
-The body is quite round for its size, but it’s never too sweet, which is appreciated.
-The finish is rather subtle; I would have preferred a slightly firmer hop grip.
-This is very easy to drink and it is quite hard to say it’s near 7% abv.

marcus (9556) - Sacramento, California, USA - DEC 9, 2010
Bottle from City Beer. Pours cloudy golden with a modest off-white head and a fruit and yeast aroma. There is a decent caramel malt flavor with a dry slightly bitter finish. It’s a bit watery, but has sufficient flavor to make it interesting.

Quack-Duck (9356) - Down South, GERMANY - MAY 26, 2011

3fourths (9276) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - DEC 17, 2012
bottle-conditioned 750ml. first shed rating of the winter. hazed gold body with a white head. both sweet smelling and more estery than the Printemps, less grassy and more fruit jelly / honey-like. the sugar suggests higher alcohol and thicker mouthfeel and it delivers the same. tropical and banana-like yeast, very Belgian-like, so I would probably say it was abbey tripel if blinded, though it seems a little more chunky, pasty and muddy like hefeweizen can be. thick finish of oily spice, sweet bread and simple syrup with banana / pear / tropical ester touches. delicate carbonation, bright flavors and light acidity / tartness play nice together, but it’s a little too sweet for my tastes.

Skinnyviking (9142) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - OCT 6, 2010

Draft. Amber beer with an off-white head. Earth and light citrus aroma with light spice. Light caramel and earth flavor with hay, light citrus, and light spice. Medium bodied. Light citrus and light spice lingers with earthiness and light caramel.

[1485-20080601] Bottle. Lemon aroma has a bit of grainy toasted yeast. Slightly hazy, medium orange light brown body with a long-lasting foamy white head. Wheat flavour has a slice of lemon accent. Medium body. Refreshing.

15/VIII/2012 on tap @ Internationaal Streekbierenfestival (Zwevegem) - BB: n/a (2012-937) Thanks to Erwin for sharing all the beers together!

Clear deep orange beer, big creamy white head, pretty stable, little adhesive. Aroma: lots of cabbages! Citrus, pretty spicy, bit herbal, some overripe fruits, grassy. Taste: more cabbages, yuk!, Brussel sprouts, bitter hops, bit grassy, liquorish. Aftertaste: bit off, cabbages again, bitter touch, vegetables.
