A-The color of hand squeezed orange juice. Light orange, yellow almost. Clarity in body, yet has a slight murkiness as well. Thick snow-white frothy head. Great foamy lacing. Lively carbonation.
S-Fresh squeezed orange. Bergamot orange leads into Earl Grey tea. Champagne. Mimosa. Soapy. Cupcake.
T-Lush sour juicy orange. Vanilla. Bergamot. Earl Grey. Sweet sugary bread. Frosted flavors. Fruit Loops.
M-Never experienced this so delicate, tender, fine sensation. Fragile softness. Low, light body. Not thin or watery, just, SOFT. Medium carbonation. Slight spicy finish reminiscent of cinnamon on your tongue. Dry sour finish, but the flavor makes your palate salivate for more. Bitters sprinkled throughout. Sour cheesy yeasty aftertaste, like yogurt or cottage cheese mixed with pineapple or peaches.
O-A unique beer. A style that needs to be brewed more, so much going on with this Biere de Garde. The softest LIQUID I have ever had the pleasure of feeling. I like the cheesy, musty qualities to this beer, propelling the brew into a true food, not just beer.

22 ounce bottle poured into a snifter.
A- fluffy, gaseous and bubbly head... Two fingers thick... Dark golden wheat-colored.... The beer is not cloudy, but yet it is opaque.... After the head dissipates, it leaves plenty of lace along the glass's sides and atop the liquid.
S- Tart, earthy, herbal, yeasty, sour fruit, apricot, something reminiscent of citrus
T- yeasty, slight hint of salt, earthy fruit, some sweetness that is a bit off-putting and syrupy, the orange peel seems to resemble something designed more to be an aroma
M- pleasantly sweet and tart initially, but the orange peel makes for something cloying and creates a thick, spicy middle that seems out of place in this otherwise light, easy-drinking beer.
O- A decent beer with some positive attributes, but the orange peel, the centerpiece of this beer, proved to also be its biggest hindrance.

Drank from a bomber. Pours a bright, slightly-cloudy gold. A small white head. Very aromatic. Papaya, honeydew, bread dough and phenol. A touch of lemon grass. A hint of funkiness. The taste is sweet with a little pancake batter and orange soda. Some paper napkin dries out the finish. Medium-bodied, with a mildly biting mouthfeel. Love it. I want to make a beer like this someday!
