The beer is hazy deep amber, has a warm off-white large head that settles slowly leaving little lacing but heavy curtains.

The smell is sweet fruity, peaches, dates, raisins. Some eggnog or muffin batter.

Starting with sweet sponge cake, some lighter fruity aromas, apricots, pears and apple peel.

Little carbonation, soft and smooth texture, a good body, a hint of dryness.

A nice fruity brew, calm and enjoyable with hard cheese.

A: Fantastic warm clear deep amber pour with a really large tan compact head that takes some time to dissipate into nice lacings.

S: Light but still complex – just like the style stipulates. Dry malt and green apples with oranges and lemons. Yeast and spice. Grassy.

T: A bit maltier than you would expect, almost bready. Slightly roasted. Then there’s fruit and yeast with spices; peppers. I get quite some hops, both floral and bitter. Some sourness.

M: Long sour/bitter aftertaste. Body is a bit fuller than this style usually is. Carbonation is medium.

O: An interesting Biere de Garde with more malt than others.

A really nice deep coppery amber. Crystal clear and topped by a frothy head that drops down to a thin coating in a few minutes.

Spicy, slightly grassy noble hop aroma, with definite raisin and a touch of Belgian funk. As it warms, it gets more malty with caramel coming out. Fruity esters contribute apple/pear - more noticable as it warms as well.

Noble hops show up in the taste as well. Caramel malt really comes out strong as it warms giving it a nice warm maltiness. White grape juice in the flavor and a little in the aroma. Finishes dry, but the maltiness makes you almost think twice. Crisp, almost bubbly effervescence that tails off with time and smooths out.

Definitely worth picking up.
