Deep clear amber color, nice fluffy head that clings to the, malty caramel-candy like aroma,sweet malty caramel and toffee flavors, nice bitter finish. Great beer, one of my favorites from this brewery.

Messy rustic orange that glows like a Jamaican sunset when held up to my front window. The murkiness clears quickly and reveals loads of yeasties suspended like miniscule insects in amber. The head is small since I had to give the beer a gentle pour to keep some of the funkier stuff from entering the glass. The ecru head is creamyfirm and is leaving a good bit of lace in shredded sheets.

Malty, bready aroma with traces of fruit and spice. It's a fairly subtle nose, but a good one. The flavor is unlike anything that I've experienced before, but then this is my first biere de garde. After much drinking and head scratching, I'll go with toasted whole-wheat bread covered in a thin layer of orange marmalade and caramel and sprinkled with allspice. That doesn't quite capture it, but I can't come any closer than that.

Despite the fact that I'm having trouble putting the flavor into words, the way that I feel about it can be expressed in one word: delicious. The glass is nearly empty and I'm wondering where the beer has gone. Lightly sweet and citrusy, the finish reminds me of a hoppy pale ale. The medium body enhances drinkability even though the flavor profile gives this beer all the drinkability that it needs.

I have no idea if this is what a biere de garde is supposed to taste like or whether this is a good representation of the style. All I know is that Domaine DuPage is a wonderful beer that does just about everything right. The sad part is that this bottle is all I have and I can't remember where I bought it. Well worth your hard-earned money.

Redish amber color. I got a nice head on this one but it doesn't stick around long.

Bready malt almost like a pie dough. caramel.

Toffee malts with some caramel at the end.

This beer is smooth. I'd say less than medium bodied.

It's not something I would get too excited about in the future but I can appreciate its quality and can understand why someone else might love it.
