Our 2007 Hop in the City Festival Beer. Schlafly Biere de Garde is a bottle-conditioned, French farmhouse-style ale. The name refers to the beer's ability to improve with age and if you choose to age this 7% alcohol-by-volume ale, the tart fruitiness from the yeast and the sweet maltiness from the grains will meld together nicely for several years at cellar temperatures (51-55 degrees F). Brewed as a modern re-creation of a classic European beer style to celebrate Saint Louis's French heritage, Schlafly Biere de Garde pairs well with fruits, cheeses, and cured meats.

    A light amber color with a white head. Aroma contains some caramel, citrus, and skittles. The flavor is malty with a bittersweet finish. I just taste some caramel, biscuit, lemon. Its refreshing and complex.

    Hazy amber-orange pour with a creamy thick white head, good carbonation and lots of lacing. Yeasty and fruity aromas of slight peaches and cherries, a little sweet wet wood, brown sugar and slight funky yeast. Taste is slightly tart but set off by a fruity sweetness with again peaches and cherries then some yeasty flavors and a bit more sweetness. Nice beer and very refreshing change of pace.

    Pours a cloudy amber, solid white head, no lacing. Aroma is a nice blend of sweet and tart. Flavor on the sweet side at first, tartness follows, cherry undertone carries into the finish. Medium mouthfeel, noticable carbonation, but the fizz doesn't detract from the creamy smoothness, somehow. I'll buy this one again, soon!

    Pours a dark, murky copper color with creamy, lasting head. The aroma is fresh and incredibly rich with yeast & toffee/caramel malt notes. The flavor is a delicate balance of malt and hops with light spice accent, enjoyable and drinkable. Mouthfeel, almost impossibly, combines creaminess and effervescent carbonation; an impressive medium body. Loved it--go Schlafly!

    Sampled from magnum bottle. Pours hazy (if you don't decant off the yeast) copper with a creamy white head. Its aroma is delightful & rich with cherries, maple, caramel. The flavor is slightly sweet and the malt flavor is so bold I'm surprised it isn't cloying. Awesome. Try it if you can find it!
