Amber (12) draft pour with thick off white head; cap vanished quickly leaving good plus lace; excellent clarity. Sour fruit nose. Sour fruit with just a little bit of funk. Medium lite mouthfeel and moderate carbonation. Overall very good.

A solid malt backbone enhances a beer with a nice amount of dark fruits and Belgian spice.

It gets a 82/100.

Dark orange and light brown appearance, I guess that is called amber, but this was darker, like say, maybe auburn. 1/4" off white head. Aroma was specialty, thick, dark bread. Reminded me of those bad fruitcakes that your family would bring to the holidays and shit.

Carbonation was lower than I hoped, so much spice rack overload. Maybe it was the yeast contribution just being so damn loaded, overly complex. Biere de garde is just not my thing, make sure you put that into your understanding here. I can only rate to style so hard when I hate the beer itself. I don't hate this, but you get my gist.
