Taster at Bruery Provisions. Interesting brew to say the least. Had some vegetal aroma with a hint of sweetness and a common Bruery yeast presence. Just ok in my opinion. JohnC (3008) - Mission Viejo, California, USA - NOV 1, 2011
I had this beer on tap at Bruery Provisions. I liked it. Dry, tangy with a clear golden color and a nice aroma, I enjoyed it. Hophead22 (2879) - Redlands, by way of Wisconsin,, California, USA - OCT 30, 2011
Tap. Rating #5. Clear golden orange color. The head was just a hair darker than white. Vegetal aroma, savory, I know that’s what they are going for, but it’s not for me. Nice flavor, dark and fruity, real nice. (1975) beersearcher (2383) - Glendale, California, USA - OCT 21, 2011
Pours a golden orange. Spicy notes hit the palate first followed by some orange/citrus notes. fairly mild and not over the top. No zucchini taste for me. Also seems lighter than 8.5% Part of Ultimate Flight Night at 38 Degrees. kegbear (436) - Orange, California, USA - OCT 17, 2011
Tap at The Bruery. Light orange with thick white head. Different spices come through along with some toffee malt. Cedar and lemon show up also. Different and good.

On tap @ the brewery.
Light orange with a small amount of white head. Aromas of lemon, zuccihini bread, and herbs. This is a very unique beer, not sure i’ve had anything like it before. Quite sweet with, flavors of zucchini, spices, caramel malt and just a bit of cedar coming through. ABV is well hidden but I couldn’t drink more than one of these due to the sweetness.

A: This one pours a murky golden orange color with a small white head.
S: Smells pretty sweet. Lots of bread and a bit of the zucchini comes through. A bit of lemon peel and fennel. The cedar doesn’t really come through all that much, thankfully.
T: Only a little bit of cedar on the flavor as well as a slight vanilla note. There is definitely some sweet toffee and caramel flavor. A little pepper, fennel, and a sweet starchy flavor I can only guess is zucchini.
M: Medium bodied with medium carbonation.
O: I was expecting a bit of a disaster, but this was quite good. It was too sweet for what I expect from a biere de garde, but nice otherwise.
