3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
A hazy orange beer with a thin orange head. The aroma is sweet and very fruity - especially peaches coming thru - as well as very yeasty. The flavor is sweet with notes of wood, yeast, and caramel, but the body is thin. Definately one of the better Biere de Garde I’ve had.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: SEP 12, 2005 Bottled at RBESG. Hazy deep golden. Buttery malt aroma. The geuine Flanders soft, dense, butterymalt character is definitely there, but lacks the lively champagnelike mouthfeel of the top examples. Instead this has more orangey hoppiness.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Hazy orange-amber. Earthy, woodsy, musty aroma. Yeasty, sourish. Notes of caramel malt, peaches, pears. Refined, not 100% to style, but few really good BdeG's are.

750 c&c from Half Time. Pours lightly reddish orange/gold with a 3 finger beige head. Smells lightly farmy with fruits and mild spice. It’s surprisingly oaky. There’s a burnt sugar hint, and a lot of fruit. Mild hints of funk.
