look: 4.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

A - very clear, solid brown color, slight head

S - kinda smells like it's been aged in oak barrels, a bit roasted also

T - malty taste but not too over the top, perfect blend of hops and malts

M - slight carbonation, smooth

O - How many French country ales have you had? There is nothing quite like it. You must try this.

4.13/5  rDev +8.4%
look: 4.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Poured into a new belgium chalice, color is amber, copper edges, head was huge, settled to 1" then dissipated to about a ring with some nice lacing, color is off white.

Smell is caramel, light toast and biscuit, crisp hop notes, some grass, light spice.

Taste is spot on for a biere de garde, great malt sweetness, not overly so, crisp bitterness, intermixed wheat or biscuit flavors; somehow crisp and smooth at the same time. Spice is light and in the background

Mouthfeel is again very good, nice crisp flavors but tasty caramel/wheat malt sweetness to balance; great lingering flavor.

Overall, a very tasty, easy drinking brew; great malt/hop/carbonation balance, quenching and tasty brew.

look: 4.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

Bottle poured into tulip

A: beautiful amber, copper color, very clear, one finger off-white head, not much retention or lacing though

S: caramel maltiness initially, giving way to saisonesque barnyard earthiness

T: caramel, some toastiness, finishes with spice hoppiness

M: crisp with semi-dry finish, moderate carbonation

O: have only had a few of this style, but definitely the best I have had so far; would definitely be a go-to if I lived in Chicago area

look: 5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

Served in Chimay goblet.

Appearance: 1 finger of head, beautiful deep amber/copper color, decent lacing

Smell: Noticeable malt sweetness, maybe a little bit of toastiness

Taste: Alcohol warmth but not overpowering, a little peppery, well-balanced sweetness and hop bite.

Mouthfeel - Pretty light and smooth on the tongue. A little sharpness from the carbonation.

Overall: Pretty tasty and enjoyable. I'm not very familiar with the style, but I'll definitely try more french country/bier de garde to get a better sense. Also, one of the prettiest amber/copper colors I've seen in a beer.
