look: 4.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

A: single finger head on a clear, copper amber body and excellent lacing.

S: caramel malts, nutmeg, cinnamon... with these also reproduced in the flavor. Almost no hops by my nose.

T: caramel and toasted malts, nutmeg, cinnamon but these spices are light with subtle earthy hop character.

M: medium body and moderate carbonation.

Overall: nice spicy brew which nicely follows the style and isnt over carbonated like I feel many of these are.

Faintly hazed bright reddish coppery hue with a thin bubbly head. Candies fruit nose with a mild earthiness. Thin up front but oddly the body gets bigger on the finish. Rolling smooth medium body but close to flat. Sweet fruitiness with a coarse grainy flavor. Finishes with mild alcohol heat and faint woodiness. Long lingering Fruity finish. Balance is there somewhat leaning on the sweet side. Interesting and good beer but definitely something odd about it. Not as clean as id like with a very strange mouth presence.

Trying some new beer styles. This one is my first Biere-De-Garde.

Amber color inside the glass. Hazy appearance. Heard that it is often unfiltered, so not uncommon. Less than a finger thick head of off-white color, that persists for some time but then recedes. Very good and sticky lacing. Some bubbles.

Aroma: Very prominent malts and some sweetness in the nose. Caramel, some toasty aroma. A little of yeast aroma came at first but then disappeared very quickly. Not the best and strongest of aroma since i am consuming near the best by date. Some very very subdued noble hops.

Taste: Sweet, malty, toasty and caramel like. some very mild fruitiness. May be some balancing hops that prevent it from being overly sweet. Semi-dry finish.

Mouth feel: Medium bodied feel. Moderate carbonation. No astringency whatsoever.

Style Rate: 4
Personal Rate: 3.5

Nothing really wrong with this beer but nothing going on as well. Style wise - very mellow and semi sweet type of style. I can drink it, but won't seek this style out.

Poured from bottle into a nonic pint glass.

Appearance: Spot on amber in color. Two finger, persistent head. Massive lacing. Fine beaded, medium carbonation.

Smell: A lot going on here. Very yeasty, sweet caramel malt and a touch of noble hop (something like Golding/Hallertauer/Saaz etc).

Taste: Very sweet/malty/bready. Great malt/hop balance. Finish is in form of nice lingering hop bitterness.

Mouth Feel: Full bodied, somewhat cloying.

Drinkability: At 5.9% abv, this is not quite a session ale but on a given night would be tempted to try more than a few of these, however.

Overall: If this is what they serve in the French countryside, l wouldn't mind spending some time there.
