3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
$2.75 bottle from Wine Warehouse. Pours slightly hazy golden with no head. Aroma of honey, strawberry, melon. Flavor is sweet dark fruit, grain, burnt honey, perhaps a hint of orange. Interesting. Edited to add: as this beer warmed, the flavors burst out and I enjoyed it more. Bumping up overall by two points and taste by one.

4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle. Moderate malt aromas of light bread, nutty and grain, light to moderate grass and herbs for the hops, moderate dough for the yeast, with dried light fruit and white wine and faint baking spice in the background. Head is large, frothy, slightly off-white, with some slippery lacing and is mostly lasting. Color is clear medium amber but hazy and has a few crumbs floating around. Flavor starts lightly sweet and acidic, then finishes lightly sweet, acidic and only slightly bitter. Palate is on the fuller side of medium, slick with a lively carbonation and a smooth and faintly alcoholic finish. What an exceptional Biere de Garde!
