Spent the day sorting through stuff at mum’s house. Its amazing how much stuff someone could build up over 40 odd years of living in the same place. Tenuous link but a biere de garde was designed to be kept, pretty much like what mum thought about every trinket, knitting pattern, and mug she touched…
@littleearthproject – Dandelion de Garde
Regular readers may already know this, but just for those new here, I’m an LEP fanboy. Here we have their take on a biere de garde. Granted I hadn’t heard of the style before I picked this up, but the line «malt forward farmhouse» interested me, mainly because I usually get the fruitier numbers. Also the malt, hops and dandelions were grown 20 mins down the road from me. So, on to the beer, there’s a sweetness upfront going into an earthy dryness. The trademark oaky funk is present and correct, if a lot sharper than usual. It’s odd and complex as expected but seems a little flat.
