On tap at the Common Table’s 2nd anniversary party. The beer pours an amber color with a white head. The aroma has quite a bit of Belgian yeast, as well as some assorted peppery spices and some lighter malts. The flavor has some biscuit malt, as well as some pepper and coriander notes. The Belgian yeast also adds to the flavor. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

Thick off white head that’s very creamy, lasts a while and is surrounded by a thick lacing. The body is clear with a medium amber center.
Malts, burnt herbs and mild citrus fruit. Mild spices do come through.
Grapefruit, spices, mild apple and a mild tartness throughout and a mild clove in the aftertaste.
Light – medium bodied and full of carbonation.
Very refreshing, and very smooth, this, so far, is the best Rogness beer I’ve so far.

Quite malty and rich with nice bitterness as well. Attractive dark reddish amber in the pint shaker. Modest foam with a sparkling carbonation.

Lots of malty flavors, roasted grain, and fruity like a Saison. Lots of the yeasty, scratchy Belgian flavors. Big and rich, makes for a great mouthful of flavor, but a bigger beer than you'd expect to encounter for a Bière de Garde. Starts out sweet and evolves into that yeasy bitterness and dries out on the tongue. Really a tremendous flavorful beer that is well worth seeking out. Another interesting example of Americans doing interesting experiments with the Belgian classics.

On tap at the Westside Alehouse somewhere by the freeway in Round Rock, Texas.

Also had this one on tap at Common Table at their 2nd anniversary. Visually, it had a great amber color and a good amount of lacing. Good taste, a bit of spice, although it had a bit more alcohol taste than I would expect for a 6.2% beer.

Overall, a solid effort from an up and coming brewery, and a welcome addition to the format. Look forward to trying their other brews soon.
