Got this bottle from France (0,75). And I am very surprised. Most tasty beer I tasted in years. Very roasty taste with dried fruits. Malty and long taste. I had this in my mouth for hours. detroiter (958) - Euphoria, Minnesota, USA - JAN 13, 2007
Pours a clear deep amber, topped by an impossible head of light tan foam. Too much head retention - foam oozes out of the top of the bottle, even after I’ve poured off 4-5 ounces. Light malt caramel aroma, with a soft fruitiness.
Delicious beer - light caramel, some dark honey, sweet bread, and a touch of dried apricot. These sweet flavors are nicely balanced by the fresh earthy hops.
Exceptionally smooth beer - medium body and lots of gentle carbonation. crazy_cat_lady (601) - - APR 12, 2014
April 4, 2014. 750mL bottle at barvolo. Barley flavour. Very smooth, lovely mouthfeel. Nice balance, lovely finish. Dark amber with white head. SuzyGreenberg (1603) - Seattle, Washington, USA - MAR 15, 2012
750 ml bottle; dense brown with almost dirty, muddy texture and fizzy light cream head; wow, sometimes I’m blown away by a BdG aroma with the spelty wheat, husky grain and sweet honey; silky, light syrup in the mouthfeel; sweet honey, dry oaks, some dry fruit; delicate yet complex; crisp, clean lager-like feel to it with all the spelty, belgian goodness; one of the best BdG’s I’ve had yet; pure yum Schanulleke (8) - NETHERLANDS - OCT 30, 2005 does not count
Not a Biere de Garde. Great character of munich malts. Bitter. Less well balanced than the blond

UPDATED: DEC 31, 2007 Mild gusher, as I am force to quickly grab the bottle and start sucking the foam as I reach for my largest available glass (Duvel - damn it) more foam and the bubble still acting like a micro Mount Vesuvius. OK, me thinks things have settled down. Orange amber color with a fluffy dark cream colored head. The color darkens slightly with each additional pour. Fall wildflower breeze flowing through the attic haymow,with old wood and dry grain included. Gentle pours required with this one. Light and airy on the palate, with enough heft to keep it on the tongue. I interject that I have been quite pleased with the brews from this brewery. Fairly light in flavor, but balanced and pleasant. Pale malt, honey, peaches, mild apples and herbal/wild flower hops balance. Finish is quite dry and rather uneventful. Some mild caramel and apple. Linger returns to herbal roots and a hint of light toffee. A perfect end of the day potation. NYHarvey (2153) - New York, New York, USA - FEB 3, 2007
1 pint 9.4 oz bottle $9.99. The aroma is sweet candy sugar, sweet malts, mild raisin notes, some citrus and spice a soft floral aroma that is very inviting. The body is a bright copper/amber color and supports a massive three fingers thick head that is ivory white, fluffy and lasting. Fore is dry and grainy with toasted breads, mild baked raisin and caramel flavors, honey and sweet malt. Very tasty. The carbonation is biting and gives some crispness to the rounder, lightly sweet base flavor. nuplastikk (6289) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - APR 21, 2008
750ml bottle. Cloudy gray-amber color. Highly effervescent, light, and relatively dry for an amber. Hints of sour cherry, vanilla, and some sort of spice, perhaps just the yeast or malt. This is a seriously complex beer for being only 5.8%. Very well balanced with a crisp Earthy hop character and a nice subtle amber malt backbone that doesn’t overwhelm the palate. Great beer. dumontn (530) - St. Joseph, Michigan, USA - APR 25, 2012
Bottle gushes when opened, pours hazy amber with strong head and visible effervescence as well as some floaties. Aroma is light tart pepperiness, raisin, bread. Taste is candy caramel, raisin, tart green grape, freshly baked bread. Body is light, frothy, effervescent, and with a dry tart grapey finish. Overall, an extremely delicious beer. Very enlightening to drink as I experience very different (yet delicious) results while brewing with their yest. Goldorak (438) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 30, 2005
Bronzy and quite effervescent, it started off with a fat layer of honeycomb meringue, and it kept on bubbling and churning like a miniature volcano in the middle of my glass, I enjoyed watching that. A few flakes were found laying around the bottom, not enough for me to be repulsed.
A real sour, almost lactic aroma. Like a funk-less lambic, or freshly squeezed lemonade. I tried hard to pick up anything else, but just couldn’t. A little one-dimentional, but I liked it anyway.
Excellent presence in my palate, much more malt body than I expected, it finished off chewy with an unripe exotic fruit flavor, like a caramel coated mango. This is my second solid offering from Thiriez, I’ll try to seek them out more.
