Excellent beer with wonderful head retention. Had an absolutely lovely and beautiful amber color. There was little I personally caught on the nose however the combination of wheat and apple was absolutely delightful. Very light and drinkable but nothing lost with the lack of emphasis on anything in particular. Overall? Very solid beer and showed a new dimension for me in SingleCut's repertoire

07/11/13 At Rattle N Hum on tap. Biere de Garde is a category that eludes me. What I have here has a fruity, almost cherry flavor, but with a fleeting sweet & a dry finish. Port is what comes to mind. Very good but not quite the summer refresher I was expecting. Planning on a re-visit.

On tap at the brewery (pint #3!)

A: Light amber with a touch of haze. White frothy head

S: Clove overwhelmingly from the Belgian yeast, some toasty malt, a hint of vanilla

T: Exactly what I'd expect from the aroma - clove/mild spice Belgian yeast fermentation, toast malt with a touch of crystal malt sweetness. Smooth. A very mild (pine?) hop aftertaste mixed in with the Belgian notes.

M: Smooth. I said that already didn't I?

O: Hanging at the brewery and thought these guys were all about hoppy ales and lagers, so was surprised to find a Belgian ale (this is their summer ale I was told). Pretty classic and well made, I likes

The aroma is floral and spicy.

The flavor has some with a sweet breadiness. The beer is quite nutty. It reminds me of a ripe banana and pepper.

The finish is slightly drying. It's great to see them do a beer in this style or Belgian in general. For it's ABV, it's actually really flavorful. A great beer in the style.
