Never had a 'bier de garden' and then this blew my mind. Wonderful color, aroma and flavor. So drinkable.

This just came out today in cans and I was lucky enough to grab a 4-pack. Poured into my Southern Star Oktoberfest stein.

A- Dark copper color almost red with two fingers of off-white head.

S- Lots of nice biscuit & pretty much sums up the smell.

T- Biscuit, bread, a nice malty brew. Similar funk to other farmhouse styles. You can taste the 6-row barley they used making it true to style.

M- Very light and delicate. carbonation is just right.

O- Great new seasonal from Southern Star. It makes me want to try other brews from the Biere de Garde style. Definitely recommend picking this one up to try. The 6-row will also please most macro-only drinkers.

Picked up a 4 pack of this seasonal at a local HEB. 12 oz can poured into a pint glass.

A- Pours a hazy copper with little to no retention or lacing.

S- Light aroma with nothing overwhelming, hints of caramel, hops, yeast, and some fruit (mainly apple and orange).

T- Identical to the aroma, hints of a caramel, spice, and lingering fruit in the end.

M- Brisk medium body with light carbonation.

O- Easy drink, has an enjoyable character to it with the unique combination of flavors. Favors more of the fall side to its fall/winter seasonal category. Another great can by Southern Star.

Appearance: This beer contains a near perfect reddish color. The head unfortunately dissipated very quickly.

Smell: The smell was very prominent and was reminiscent of many red ales and lagers. There is definitely a fruity hint that is very common in reds.

Taste: This beer has a very prominent taste that is common in most reds. Hops and a fruity taste dominate this beer.

Mouthfeel: This beer is has a very good mouthfeel with a dry finish.

Overall: This is a very good reddish beer. My only complaint is that the flavor wasn't stronger. Southern Star is usually known for having a kick and this one, while great, didn't possess as much of a kick as the Pine Belt Ale and the Buried Hatchet. Other than that, good contribution to the line up from the Conroe brewery.

12 oz can poured into oversized wine glass.

A: Pours a murky burnt orange / ruby with a finger of off white head.

S - Smells sweet and tart, like berries, with some Belgian funkiness.

T - I get sweet and tart raspberry, apricot, cherry, and Belgian yeast. This is a great flavor combo!

M - Sticky sweet, the body is thin-moderate, and the carbonation is moderate.

O - An interesting brew with a great fruity flavor profile. I really enjoyed this.
