A: The beer is orange-red in appearance and poured with just a thin layer of bubbles on the surface. There is a light amount of carbonation.
S: There is some malty sweetness in the aroma along with some notes of hops and yeast.
T: The initial taste has some sweetness with flavors of toasted malts; some notes of bitterness from the hops make an appearance in the finish. The overall taste starts to become more complex as it warms up.
M: It feels light- to medium-bodied on the palate.
D: It was rather drinkable, but if I have this again I would probably pair it with food. The beer becomes a bit more drinkable as it warms up.

Best by 6/8/11

Appearance - A finger full of head with clumpy white froth. Laces well to the glass. The beer is a very cloudy and opaque brown to red-amber color. Looks like sweet fruits.

Smell - The smell here is very distant and cloudy. Faint hints of malt and wheat. Not much else is noticeable.

Taste - Very full of wheat. Kind of like I'm chewing on the wheatgrass itself. Tastes roasted with slight malts in the background. A light lemony cherry note remains very very subtle throughout. Slight spices as well.

Mouthfeel / Drinkablity - A very drinkable Biere de Garde. Light to medium bodied. A slight ethanol taste is present as I continue to drink. One of my favorite Biere de Gards I've had.

Single, 12-ounce bottle copped from New Beer Distributors on Chrystie Street in Manhattan...
The beer pours a murky, copper, bright-orange, tawny appearance with a modest head and minimal lacing...
Nuances of caramel, vanilla, and candied sugars are noticeable in the nose...
This beer has a caramel start with a bittersweet finish... Flavor loaded with cotton candy, honey, malts, hops, caramel, and cloves...
Overall, this was an easily drinkable beer, yet it could have definitely been more assertive and flavorful... The essences noticeable on the tongue were there, but not assertive enough...
A decent American stab at the style...
