3.18/5  rDev n/a
look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

slightly hazy blond colour, very light head, some lace. Smell is lightly yeasty, hops, light citrus and spice but also slightly cheesy. Taste is lightly yeasty, lemon, unbalanced, earthy, lightly bitter and fairly plain. Light to medium feel, aggressive carbonation, syrupy finish. Not bad but needs some work, it is drinkable but nothing special.

Beer is a cloudy orange colour. Looks like a wit. No head.

Smell is remarkable- but not in a good way. It smells remarkably like cheese, parmesan or even cheddar. Bizarre, and not particularly nice.

The cheese scent is present in the taste as well, but thankfully not quite as strongly. Does leave a bizarre tang in the mouth. Pretty hard to get past the cheese-like flavour.

Overcarbonated, mildly irritating. Relatively light bodied.

Overall? Not my thing. My first experience with biere de garde. I am not sure if this is a good example of the style, but this is not an enjoyable beer.
