La Goudale Biere de Garde

This 7.8% ABV biere de garde is brewed by Gebrouwen Door: Les Brasseurs de Gayant of Douai, France.
Biere de Garde is a traditional French farmhouse style of beer, brewed in the winter for summer consumption.

The beer pours a dark, almost orangish, golden in color with a short white head that leaves thick lacing down the glass.  The aroma is slightly sweet, fruity, more malty than hoppy.  The taste is hard to characterize, malty, fruity, bread and jam.  A nearly perfect balance of malt and hops.
