Body is the color of apple cider. Head is light tan and jumps to almost an inch before it starts to fade. Scattered dots of lace are left behind. Nose is a weird mix of soured fruit and cleaning solution and fungal rot. Flavor has some vegetative notes and dirty malts. I really won't say much more then this is just a little off overall.

Poured from a bottle into a pint glass.

Appearance: Copper with a thin white head. No lacing on the glass.

Smell: Sweet, with some alcohol.

Mouthfeel/Taste: Smooth medium bodied. Alcohol with a bittersweet fruity flavor and some malts.

Overall: Not really a brew I care for, glad to have tried it.

Pours an orange golden color with off-white head. Biscuit, bread, cereal and some grass on the nose; follows onto the palate. Finishes with a yeasty note.

Not very enjoyable. Had a hard time finishing my glass. Didn't taste like the style should taste like.

This beer looks nice as you pour it into the glass, a dark amber color with a thin head. Taste is sweet and sour, hinting of caramel, biscuit and light honey - with a lingering bitter aftertaste. Smell is fruity.

According to Garrett Oliver, "The Brewmasters Table" the Bièr de garde pairs well with:
Bouillabaisse, Cassoulet, Charcuterie, Choucroute, Coq au vin, Crudités, Roasted Duck, Fondue, Game, Onion Tart, Pheasant, Risotto, Truffles and a variety of Cheeses.
