Pour is golden amber with a red ruby tint and a light tan tight head. Nose has a chewy sticky caramel malt front with a deep green apple skin behind and faint farmhouse spice to it. Taste is balanced, on the sweet side but not sugary, well attenuated. Sticky malt, caramel light, apple skin, sweet finish, light hop presence through the finish. Body is light, carbonation is very gentle, semi dry finish. Solid stuff and very drinkable.

on tap at perch pub in philly

Pours a slightly hazed caramel auburn color with some reddish hues. Thin crop of beige head dissolves completely, leaving little lacing or retention.

Some faint Belgian yeast in the nose with hints of dark fruit. Apples come through with a dash of cherry and some bready sweetness. Little alcohol warmth.

A little spicy and yeasty up front with some Belgian notes. Dark fruit creeps through but doesnt become too sweet, lingering with a few hints of cherry. Apples give way to bready and caramel sweetness in the backbone. Finishes with another touch of apple and very soft warmth.

Medium body, slightly higher carbonation, sticky and bubbly on the tongue. This is pretty decent, but I've had better from Southampton before.

golden/amber color. aroma consists of light bread, toasty, roasty, and also citrus. Smells of apple oranges come to mind when smelling. Medium hold, the head has about 2 inches of fold which always makes the beer look more presentable. It was pretty sour in my opinion. Cloudy/sediment on the bottom because of the yeast. There was also a hint of caramel malt and earthly yeasty smell. High carbonation. Smooth on the mouth feel. 6-8% alcohol, but a pretty strong armona and taste.

750 ml bottle into tulip, no bottle dating. Cork was stuck and broke off, so I had to use a wine key to remove it haha. Pours slightly cloudy orange amber color with a nice 2 finger fairly dense khaki head with great retention that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Small bits of lacing on the glass. Aromas of big grape, apple, biscuit, caramel, candi sugar, citrus peel, grass, and spiciness. Some nice and well balanced aromas; with good complexity. Taste of caramel, toasted malt, biscuit, apple, citrus, candi sugar, pepper, and yeast spiciness. Taste and aromas almost mirror each other. Lingering notes of caramel, biscuit, candi sugar, and spices on the finish for a bit. Medium-high carbonation and medium bodied; with a fairly creamy and very smooth mouthfeel. Very easy to drink. Alcohol is extremely well hidden, nothing but a slight warming after the finish. Overall an excellent biere de garde. Great balance and complexity. I definitely would like to try out more from this style.

light golden amber. Lots of sediment in the bottle with a nice amount of carbonation rising up through the glass. A nice two inch head of white foam gathered on the top and settled down lightly producing a nice amount of side glass lace.

The aroma was rich and malty. Lots of caramel and light bready notes coming through almost immediatly, with a light punch of grain tucked in behind them and a light nose of peach poking up beyond that. The flavor was more of the same, light touches of peaches and apricots, perhaps a touch of fresh grassy notes that were sitting on top a nice bit lo light grain. Intresting touch of caramel on the initial sip that quickly mellowed out behind the light fruit notes, which combined with a long dry finish really helped push the malt profile to the forefront. Nice carbonation kept this one feeling lively throughout the session, with a medium bodied feel that was just heavy enough to coat the tongue. Easily a sessionable ale
