Bottle shared at local beer tasting. Deep copper body, solid white head. Aroma of caramel and yeast. Taste is sweet malts, alcohol, flowers. One dimensional and a bit boring. oh6gdx (26482) - Vasa, FINLAND - JUN 19, 2012
Bottled. Amber colour with a small slightly off-white head. Aroma is caramel, yeast, mild rubbery notes as well as some grains. Flavour is herbal, grainy, a bit rubbery and a bit harsh. Hermod (7695) - Vantaa, FINLAND - MAY 27, 2012

Flat aroma, mashy. Apart from a bit of sugar providing smoothness, this is almost thin in its palate, the carbonation is quite high. Caramelliness is noticeable in the taste. Very bready too, toasty. Initially quite metallic, coppery, from the bittering hops. In some ways a quite unsatisfying. I do like the sweet breadiness, and also the bitter bite, but deep down this is flawed, and has many negative aspects, the copperiness builds up as it warms. Hint of mushroom. I have a strange dichotomy - would I rather drink this or the 4.7% neuschwansteiner weissbeer earlier. At one point I think I prefered this, but later I think I prefer the wheatbeer later.
Bottled from Systembolaget
Deep, clear golden with a large head.
Fresh and grassy aroma with metallic notes.
Metallic flavour with alcoholic notes. Grassy and peppery. imdownthepub (14468) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - MAY 14, 2012
Bottled, 750ml cork & cage from Carrefour, Coquelles, France. Amber to copper, fizzed head. Initial interest of sweet caramel malt and a vague fruitiness, some vanilla perhaps, but this doesn’t last and it becomes a big bottle of largely nothingness. Heavy going in the end, more a beer to share between 20 different people. TBone (17441) - Pori, FINLAND - MAY 8, 2012
Bottled 750ml (Arkadia, BB 08/2013)AndySnow (7557) - Huddinge, SWEDEN - MAY 6, 2012
Clear deep copper color, steady off-white head. Nose has metal, light caramel and some grass. Light to medium bodied. Crisp carbonation. Quite weak palate. Clean, a bit ryeish malty flavor with typical Biere de Garde caramel notes and metal. Oily finish with light alcohol and grassy hoppyness. Uninteresting "drinking beer", but probably works quite well with food.
Bottle. Amber colour with a white head. Aroma of hops and some fruitiness. Flavour is fruity, hoppy with some spiciness. Arve_Christian (5114) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAY 1, 2012

Sweet taste of dried fruits
Ok, but a bit to sweet for me
