Best by 05/09/14, a little past it; let's see what we have here..

Pours an effervescent amber with a thumb of beige head. Pretty nice lacing & head retention

S: Pears, leafy hops

T: Pears, figs, leafy hops & a little caramel up front. More pears & sweet (too) apple juice & a little bit of leafy hops & dryness as this warms. Finshes dry with a little bit of woody hops & grassiness, plus pears

MF: Medium bodied, firm carbonation

A training wheels version of the style. Not sure if freshness will really improve this. Alright to drink, but a one & done me thinks

Pours to a rich off white head and copper brown color. Aroma is toasty, biscuits and chocolate malt. Some spicy hops in aroma as well. Flavor is rich and complex with bourbon, vanilla, chocolate, toast, cookies, alcohol and a spicy hop zing. Mouthfeel is light medium. Overall very tasty and technically clean.

3.55/5  rDev +5.7%

Pours a dark honey/auburn color with an offwhite head of about a finger or so. Dissipates to a foamy ring.

The aroma was biscuity, bready, with some maltiness, touches of caramel and earth.

Flavor profile was earthy, with a touch of mild bitterness, tinges of caramel and honey, some lightly sweet malts and bread crusts.

Slightly lower carbonation, a tad creamy, but smooth. Not bad.

It's pretty drinkable and it's a pretty decent beer all around.

Bayou Teche Biere Acadie has a thick, creamy, cream-colored head and a clear, bubbly, amber appearance, with a nice amount of lacing left on the chalice. The aroma is of sugary, fruity, buttery smells, and the taste is the same, with a nice hop note to round it out. The mouthfeel is light and fairly watery, and Bayou Teche Biere Acadie finishes refreshing, wet, and very drinkable. I rate this most excellent.

Poured from tap at Bulldog Midcity in New Orleans, LA. Poured a deep amber brown into pint glass. Very malty sweet aromas, with little other personality. Very sweet malty taste, with some aparent mild hop flavor as well...
Here is the thing...if you compare to how a Biere de Garde should be, it svery close to the description of the style; however, its not all that amazing. Maybe its because I havent had many of the style, but its just an ordinary malty brew to me. Drinkable, but not amazing...I guess just slightly above average to me.

3.3/5  rDev -1.8%

Poured into a pint glass a pale copper. Crystal clear with a creamy cap of white head.

A slightly metallic aroma is in the background. Subtly sweet crystal malts are the prominent smell here.

Peppery sweet, caramel, and toasty roasted malts.

Medium-thick bodied. Viscous.

3.18/5  rDev -5.4%

Poured from a 12 oz bottle into standard pint.

A: Golden, amber hue. Lots o' tiny bubbles of effervescence initially cling to sides of the glass, and rise to the surface throughout. Pours about a half finger, bubbly, white head. Disappears quickly leaving little more than a memory of a head. No lacing.

S: Cardboard, paper, with light hints of dish soap, and even lighter hints of citrus.

T: Light, citrussy, pungent white bread.

M: Very light and crisp with a coppery, pungent, and pretty bitter, aftertaste.

D: Goes down without much resistance, but not quite a session.

Atmosphere is okay. Nothing special in terms of appearance, and nose is very light. All flavor components are lightly applied. The bitterness, however, comes out clearly. Overall, this is a pretty good quaff.

3.3/5  rDev -1.8%

Pours a dark amber with an off white head.

Smells slightly sour, but not musty, has a roasted nutty malt smell and a slight herbal bitterness.

Taste is a nice nutty malty punch backed by bitter herb then flowing into a slight sour yeast finish. Finishes dry. This is a good beer - easy drinking and tasty. I did not detect anything that screamed Biere de Garde, drank more like a mild bock.
