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.

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.

12oz Brown bottle with pry-off cap and best by date of "11/03/2014". Poured into a pint glass.

Appearance: Pours a hazy, deep copper with 1 finger of head

Smell: toffee malts and some plum notes

Taste: the toffee malt notes come up front with a bitter middle that leads into a finish with some lingering bread notes; i get a little plum and raisin

Mouthfeel: Medium and crisp

Overall: A good, mid-bodied Biere de Garde. This finishes lighter and more crisp than others of this style.

Really enjoyable. Filled with tropical fruits and apples. Maybe not the truest to the style but certainly one I would revisit.

On-tap 10/12/2014 at Doherty’s Ale East Ave Irish Pub in Pawtucket, RI, served in a tapered pint glass.

A: The beer is a deep coppery brown color, with a short off-white head that fades slowly and leaves a thick lace on the glass.

S: The aroma contains caramelized malts, fruit, Belgian yeast and touches of spice and hops.

T: The taste starts out sweet with flavors of caramel, dark fruit and some spice. Then some breadiness comes in from a hearty malt character and some Belgian yeast. The hops presence is very mild but complementary and brings a good balance. The after-taste is slightly sweet.

M: Crisp and smooth, medium body, medium carbonation, finish is slightly sticky.

O: Tasty, goes down easily, not too filling, decent kick, good representation of style, this is a decent beer to drink for a while if you’re in the mood for the style.

Poured into a goblet. Pours clear copper with a thin, quickly dissipating white head and numerous tiny bubbles coming from the bottom of the glass and clinging to the side of the glass. The beer smells sweet and bready. There's just a touch of citrus from the hops. The flavor is bready from the malt with some hop bitterness in the background. There's just a little bit of citrus back there. It's a little earthy. It's an interesting flavor. The body is light with strong carbonation. The finish is clean and dry. The drinkability is high. This is a good beer.
