A -- A copper amber brew that pours into a two finger eggshell head to leave a thin splotchy foam, leaving wispy, broken lacing.

S -- Aromas of caramel apple, spice and hints of dark fruit.

T -- Slightly sweet yet dry malt characteristics with hints of floral notes, somewhat bready, some raisin and prunes in the background.

M -- Smooth and creamy, medium bodied, with moderate carbonation.

D -- Very nice. As this is what I think is my first biere-de-garde, I will consider it a style to look for and will definitely revisit this after trying a few others. Solid brew.

Slightly murky dark amber/brown with a nice off-white head that lasts and lasts. Aromas are different, and very appealing. I smell caramel, nice malts, herbal/floral hops, spices, and a bit of fruit. The taste is very earthy, herbal, malty, and very heavy on the caramel. This is reminiscent of some French Biere De Garde style ales, but to me, this does not have the malt complexities, or spicy hop profile that most French ales of this nature have. The mouthfeel is medium bodied and smooth and the drinkability is good. This is a very good beer from the Two Brothers, but i'm not so sure about this being labelled as a biere de garde.

A: Poured into an oversized tulip Duvel goblet, deep copper with a thin head, and some wispy swirls on top. Not much noticable carbonation.

S: Smell of caramel, toasted malts, hint of yeast and something floral.

T: Malty sweet flavor, mixed in with some hops. Finished malty, with a slight lingering citrus aftertaste.

M&D: Medium bodied, easy to drink, nicely balanced.

It was not what I expected, since I never experienced a "French Style Country Ale", brewed in Warrenville, IL. It reminded me very much of a Belgian-style brew. Definitely worth sampling.
