Poured into a tulip glass at Fondren Public on my birthday.

A: A hazy copper with a tan one finger head that lingered a bit. Frothy lacing. Pretty.

S: Bring on the sweetness. Caramel malts mixed with dark fruits (raisins, dates, plums) and Belgian yeast.

T: Follows nose with candied sweetness that might turn some drinkers off. But I love it. I'm even picking up a hint of cognac. Light hops bring in a pleasant balance. This one is a sipper, even an after dinner drink.

M: Medium with medium carbonation. Nice frothing on the tongue.

O: If you don't like sweet beers, stay away. But for me, this was a pleasure. A fine respite after a hard day. Probably great with a cigar.

On-tap at Thirsty Monk, Asheville, NC

A: The beer is clear very dark amber in color. It poured with a quarter finger high off white head that died down and left a thin layer of bubbles covering the surface and the sides of the glass.
S: Light aromas of earthy yeast are present in the nose.
T: The taste has a slight bit of sweetness and has notes of earthy yeast and hints of dark fruits.
M: It feels medium-bodied and smooth on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer seems a little fruitier compared to other beers in the style.

A coppery amber color in the tulip glass. The head is a little deficient. Smells like dishwater with some manila rope.

An odd metallic sort of taste. Plum skins is about as much as I can put words to. It doesn't really taste like much of anything. A tangy mouthfeel, a very light body, but not much carbonation. Inoffensive, but not what I'm hoping for in this usually interesting style. There are so many good Bière de Gardes I am spanking this one. What ever it is, I think the brothers should have stayed out of it.

On tap at Pizza Port in San Diego. They called it an "Amber Bière de Garde."

(Served in a tulip glass)
A- The bright crystal clear copper body has a gentle carbonation of microbubbles and a lumpy off-white head that last a good bit.

S- The candy esters come through during the pour but fade a bit in the glass. There is some soft lightly toasted malt and green raisins notes that take on a bit of a new sneaker aroma as it opens.

T- The nice candy sweetness has a toasted marshmallow hint to them and some green raisins notes. There is a lightly toasted malt flavor mixed in followed by a soft tartness to the hop hint in the dry finish. The dry toasted malt flavor lingers becoming just a bit sweet as it opens.

M- The medium-light mouthfeel has a crisp fizz on the tongue and no alcohol heat noticed.

O- The gentle hops support a nice mellow malt flavor with some good depth and a sweetness that is cut nicely by the fizz. This beer really adds depth as it opens up.
