By far the biggest in the Chevalier range, the Biere De Garde is loosely based on traditional Belgian and French farmhouse ales. The Biere De Garde uses a blend of spices to back up the great malt characters. This beer has a rich toffee colour with a creamy off white head, aromas are a mixture of dried fruits, spices such as star anise and clove, and yeast driven esters. The pallet presents soft round malty flavours with some residual sweetness. This beer has a lot going on and as it warms in the glass the full spectrum becomes more evident.
This complex ale pairs well with game dishes or can also be matched with dessert.
