This French-style country ale is deep amber in color. With a toasty, sweet caramel start, it finishes with just enough hops to clean off the palate. Bon Appetit!

Clear dark orange body under a small off white head. Perhaps this one is off a bit, but it has a slight vinegar aroma. Some sweetness in the flavor combined with a spritzy dryness and an acidic finish. Nice mouth feel, but not the right flavor to go with it.

Growler from the brewery. Nice copper color. Good balance between malt and hops. Very refreshing. I have no problem finishing the growler off in one siiting.

Amber, clear, head... slightly off white, aroma is earthy, hint of flowers, some sweet malt, flavor is of toasted bread, some caramel, lightly nutty, with a pleasant light hoppy finish. Enjoyable.

Wow. This is a good beer. Never had the Biere de Garde style before. I like it.

Slightly murky, copper color with a decent off-white head. Aroma of sweet caramel malt and dried fruit. Flavor is very smooth with caramel and spice and a nice piney bitter finish. Medium bodied with a velvety smooth mouthfeel. A very good and complex beer.

Ughsmash (7508) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 1, 2005
Bottle BB 10/18/05. Reddish-copper pour with a very nice 1/4" of off-white head. Bright aroma of sweet caramel malt, bread, and some floral hops in there. Flavor picked up a ton of the caramel, but there was also a nice spice array and some noble hops. Very smooth and pleasing mouthfeel, and the hops provided a nice bitterness toward the finish. This brew really struck some good chords with me.

RAYBOY01 (2011) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - SEP 25, 2005
Expecting a saison, didn’t get one, but pleasantly surprised anyway. Roasted malt with caramel/bread/cookie dough but with a pretty decent hop bitterness to keep the sweetness in check. I enjoyed this even not knowing what I was getting.

Nil on the head...beautiful amberish copper color. No aroma to speak of. Mild carmel without the heavy sweetness. Doable again.

This is the closest commercial version of a Fat Tire clone I’ve ever tasted. Probably not a bad brew to clone for Two Bros. since it is a huge seller for New Belgian but not my favorite. I was hoping this was going to be closer to a Saison style by the marketing/description on the bottle but it’s way off. The aroma is has some barnyard characteristics but not right for the style. Flavor is malty with a tart end to the balance rather than hops as the label suggests. Don’t get me wrong...I like this better than Fat Tire but way to close for my taste.

stegosaurus (1882) - Levittown, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 3, 2005
pours copper/amber color with a large off-white head, aromas of fruit, caramel, but mostly malt, the taste is sweet and malty and caramel-like, not bad.
