4.03/5  rDev +6.1%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

Appearance: Dark amber in color. Little head to speak of.

Smell: Sweet caramel notes come out in the aroma.

Taste: Sweet malt and a doughy yeast taste. Caramel comes through, but less so than with the smell. Some other earthy flavors and maybe slight fruit notes that I can't quite pinpoint.

Mouthfeel: Very little carbonation makes this very smooth. Body is on the lighter side, but not too watery.

Drinkability: Nothing unpleasant here and interesting flavors. Having another might help me get a better grip on what exactly I'm tasting.

Notes: This was my first Biere de Garde and was not at all what I was expecting. I was assuming it would be a lighter wheat beer, along the lines of a saison. I'd say I'm neither disappointed, nor pleased. I'm mostly just intrigued, with this specific beer, and the style. I'll probably try this again at some point and might seek out another Biere de Garde to compare, even though this beer didn't blow me away.

3.79/5  rDev -0.3%
look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 3.5

12 oz. bottle with a 20 June 2014 date stamped on the label.

Pours clear, medium-dark amber with a creamy tan head that has good durability and leaves fine lacing on the glass.

Aroma is malty with faint hints of vanilla and spices.

The flavor features a solid, medium malt base with hints of herbs, orange and grapefruit. Changes with warming.

Medium body with very fine, soft, medium-high carbonation.

O: Refreshing. An interesting, easy drinking and complex brown ale.
