Details

Bière de Garde has its origins in northern France and is intended to be cellared for many months. Bronze in color, this beer has a clean and caramelly profile, malty palate, smooth body, and respectable alcohol content. Our Bière de Garde kit is fermented 'steam style', by a lager yeast fermented at warmer ale temperatures. To further enhance the clean malt character, this beer should be cold-conditioned in the bottle for two months before serving.

Needs to age! Review by cluwood

Tried this and at first I thought I didn't like it.
But as it aged I came to appreciate its complexity.
Actually was disappointed when my son kicked the corny. Definitively will make again. (Posted on 5/3/12)
