Nose
A bit rubbery, with soft pale malt and a touch of apple.
Palate
Mostly sweet and warming, with pale malt aplenty but also some spicy hops buzzing around. There's more apple in evidence, and also more rubber.
Finish
Dry and increasingly bitter, but still thick and malty.
Comment
On this evidence, an enjoyable but not particularly complex beer. It's basically sweet and then gets more bitter, but my earlier tastings of this strong, golden French ale have shown up more of an apple and pear character, which adds to the interest considerably.

Nose
Bananas. Light malt and a bit of mustiness.
Palate
There's that familiar Belgian sweet and sourness, but it's actually quite light in the mouth.
Finish
Long and bitter.
Comment
A very decent biére de garde.
