look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Bottle: Poured an amber color ale with a rather large foamy head with good retention and some light lacing. Aroma of coriander, orange peel and paradise grain is quite sublime with light caramel malt notes and some residual sugars. Taste is also dominated by grain of paradise with some orange peel and some light coriander with light caramel malt. Body is about average with good carbonation. I really enjoyed this beer and probably the best I tried from this brewery with great balance between all ingredients.

look: 3.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Chill hazed brassy amber colored ale with a small white colored head.

Smell is fruity and spicy with a honey like malt aroma. Orange, grains of paradise, mild ginger. Finally mild coriander.

Starts out semi dry and spicy, grains of paradise mostly. Apples and some orange flavor. Coriander is in here but it isn't a strong flavor. Overall this is tame for the style and that is a good thing Bière de Garde can get quite funky.

Mouthfeel is good.

Overall a good beer. This beer is nothing if not easy to drink.

I REALLY wish the fad with grains of paradise would go away I'm not that fond of it.
