From the large bottle, it pours a hazy amber with a nice head, eventually reducing to thin layer and leaves lacing. Yeasty and fruity in the nose ...and the mouth gets a spicy, yeasty beer with a slightly bitter finish. Not bad!

This bottle was obviously infected, gushing upon opening. A murky, almost green color permeated y glass. Upon first sip, I was met with a distinctly unappealing sour flavor. I know this flavor, as I've tasted it in bad batches of local beer. Sad to see a batch this bad make its way across the Atlantic.

Almost clear golden color with small head. Aroma is yeast forward, lets you know it's a belgian style. Fruity aroma with some light spice character and bitter finish. Decent beer but nothing special.

Ooo, big instantaneous gusher out of the 330ml, fun stuff. Lost a few ounces or so. Once poured into a glass it settled fine though. Hazy light orange with some floaties and a white head.

The style seems up in the air (Belgian IPA on here/Biere de Garde on the label), but to me it smells and tastes somewhat similar to a tripel - Belgian yeast, toasted bread, candi sugar, herbal+earthy tones, vanilla, light bubblegum. Taste brings out some more fruity hoppage and tame citrusy tartness. Kind of a big-feeling creamy mouthfeel with surprisingly low-end carbonation, not much alcohol presence here.

Whatever it is, judging it as a Belgian/French-style blonde ale of sorts, it's good but not something I'd particularly seek out again. Less hoppier than expected but pretty solid flavors and mouthfeel.

A: The beer is hazy yellow in color and has a light amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a a quarter finger high bright white head that has good retention properties and consistently left a short head covering the surface.
S: Moderately strong aromas of floral hops are present in the nose.
T: The taste is packed with lots of flavors of floral and herbal hops and has some faint hints of peppery spices and bitterness towards the finish.
M: It feels medium-bodied and faintly crisp on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This is an interesting Belgian IPA. It didn't have as much Belgian yeast flavors compared to other beers in the style, but has interesting aromas and flavors from the hops without much of any associated bitterness.

This beer is as advertised, a hopped up Bier De Garde that stands out in both respects. The apparent yeast and maltier undertones typical of Bier De Gardes dominates the nose and front of the palate, while bright grassy and citrus notes linger in the background. The initial sweetness of this beer, that is found in hints of honey and wild flowers, is stripped away with a sharp and refreshing bitterness as well as the lively carbonation. Overall this is an easy beer to enjoy although a little more harmony would go a long way.
