Tasting notes.
My beer is listed as a Biere de Gard (Noel) however it has been fermented on Wyeast 3725 which is very similar to W3726 to me, so think of it as a Super Saison- 4 months old and ABV 9.5%. Have no illusions this is a tart to semi-sour beer that is spiced, the yeast has finished a fair wack lower then expected hence the dry body and extra 1.0%. Aroma is tart to sour upfront with intermingled spices and esters, Small dense head and deep red body, flavour similar but with spicing lingering and some malt and alcohol emerging at the finish. Best drunk at slightly lower than room temp, whilst sitting in a leather armchair in front of an open fire, in a large brandy sniffer, accompanied by a sharp vintage cheddar with rice crackers, and a lady exciting the naughty bits with her lips. Hurrah!
The point to all this drivel = if you don't like sourish beers let me know and I'll bottle something off one of the taps.

My bad, usually we specify no glass bottles (ie PET) related to an unfortunate incident at Sqyres' Big Green Shed that left his red cattle dog with a phobia concerning, Oatmeal stout, rapidly traveling bottle caps and a'holes :blink:

The bottles this time are awaiting safe disposal under a "blast blanket"

Shiiiite....
Me and sloth have bottled in glass...
No problem this swap, since some silly bugger didn't let you know.
Xmas in Xmas swap - PET only, guys! (I'll get in early this time :rolleyes: )

Edit: should I put the UXO at Enoggera Barracks on notice :p

TASTING NOTES: This little charmer is a sly minx with the roastiness of Tina Turner, with the subtle undertones of Kylie Minogue and a bitter aftertaste like Madonna's undies..............best enjoyed flaked out beside the fire after shitting yourself.
