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. Ratman197 (15212) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - MAR 25, 2012
On tapat Falling Rock poured a clear tarnished gold with a lasting ivory head. Aromas of straw, earthiness, spice and light citrus. Palate was light bodied and smooth. Flavors of straw, spice, light carmel and light fruittiness with a smooth lingering carmel finish. Dogbrick (13547) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - DEC 18, 2011
Sample at Bruery Provisions. Pours a clear orange-gold color with a medium thick white head that burns away steadily. Sticky patches of lacing on the glass. Aroma of yeast, citrus and herbal hops. Medium body with flavors of citrus, yeast, hops and spices. The finish is herbs and spices with a citrus aftertaste. Decent overall. daknole (11050) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - NOV 11, 2011
Golden pour, light head. Aroma is light spice, some odd herbal notes. Flavor is dry, herbal, lightly bitter. arminjewell (9720) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - MAR 26, 2012
On tap at Falling Rock, pour was cloudy orange with nice white head, aroma has notes of lots of coriander, lemon, hints of cedar, some odd spice notes as well, interesting for sure. Taste is a mix of spicy lemon peel, hints of pepper, cedar, touch of fleshy malts in there (zucchini?) finishing fairly sweet. Ok, but a bit odd.

On tap at Provisions. Pours with a pitch perfect clear golden body with a massive, thick and lasting white head. Aromas are very spicy, phenol, sage, bready, cedar, anise (light), bready and grainy. Ester wise it is quite clean. Taste is a bit sweet. Showcase of malt over yeast: bready, malty. Lightly herbal and spicy. Toasty. Soft and pretty clean overall (fermented low I guess, somewhat to style). Medium to lively bubbles, dry and a bit of spice or phenol in the finish.

Draft. Clear gold pour with white head. Bready, some sweetish mashed vegtables, spice, phenolic, and a cheap sugary sweetness. Not my favorite, in fact its far from it. 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)
