COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
It’s my pleasure to present a collaboration with The Brewer’s Art. A Baltimore institution that helped to pioneer the Belgian beer movement in the States. Brewed with a combination of Spelt & Rye, accented with a blend of Heather, Honeysuckle, and Hyssop. The result is a rustic farmhouse ale displaying earthy tones & floral characteristics while maintaining intricate balance.

NOTE: This is a different beer than the version brewed at Brewer’s Art.

Headless cloudy amber. Aroma is basement with pear/apple. Not sure what is heather, honeysuckle or hyssop in it, but it’s got a hibiscus/rosewater-like thing going. Carbonation is champagne esque, but with more sweetness and body. Taste adds melon and botanicals (licorice?). Pleasant, drinkable, interesting.

hershiser2 (2792) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - FEB 4, 2017
$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.

Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a pint glass. The appearance is a murky bright golden yellow color with a medium sized off-white head. The aroma is sweet fruit and yeast with some grain added. The taste is very close to the nose. Did not work for me.

glennmastrange (2801) - hobe sound, Florida, USA - NOV 20, 2016
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!
