3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a nice looking amber with a medium sized tan head. Nose is spices with a whiff of hops. Fairly creamy on the palate, the taste is malty with some caramel and ginger notes. Slight hop flavor on the finish, still rather sweet though. A good winter warmer.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Dark copper to burnt umber in color. Moderate sized beige head. Smells of yeast, wheat, toasted bread and hints of tanned leather. Quite sweet, with molasses, toasted grains and light fruit. Much like a dunkle weisse to weissebock.

Julie has a odd look while sampling. Ultimately she didn't like Julie gives a 2.0.

Bottle, pour amber with small head. Tastes of caramel and spice. Probably the best beer in this series that I have tasted.

Here it goes had this 2 months apart and in those 2 months it was almost a totally different beer strange... December it was awesome sweet sour almost like a jolly rancher one of the best and strangest beers i ever had. Wild... 2 months later had another and it had mellowed quite a bit still good but darker in color and a lot of the original flavors were gone leaving a kind of dark winter ale in its place nice job Schells!!!

Bottle from Andy (Guerde). Pours dark copper amber. Not much head. Aroma is a bit spicy. Med body. Flavor is fruity, spicy, a little earthy. It’s med fruit, not dark. It drinks very nicely, has good overall impact. Might consider there to be some toffee characteristic. Finishes pretty balanced. Good beer. Just leaves me uncertain about flavor components. Which is ok.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12oz bottle. A pretty cool, under the radar beer. Amber-tan body, filtered. Not much head, fades into some oily traces. Sweet, faint spearmint and other spices in the aroma. It certainly isn’t the best example of the style, it still has a sort of budget feel to it, but it does almost manage to actually capture the essence of Biere de Garde....OK maybe not. Tolerable.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Nearly clear, copper to amber pour with a small, blotchy beige head. Aroma of intense raw yeast, caramel, tree fruit, banana, hints of toast, caramel and rubber. Flavor is just as intensely yeasty, lots of bread and plain old bottom of the fermenter sludge, banana, cloves, anise, light caramel and dried grassy plants. Medium body, with an oily feel throughout and a little chalkiness to the finish, and light, but sharp carbonation. Im not a fan, it’s all yeast and spice. Reminds me of what I remember of Celis Grand Cru. I haven’t had that in several years, but I think I liked it better.
