Red Biere de Garde

BIERE DE GARDE is a style from Northern France, malty, strong in alcohol and with a lean body to enhance drinkability. Dark red in color it exhibits a toasty maltiness and caramelised flavours of dark stone fruits. This is the kind of beer that would have been drunk in high quantities by the sailors of the famous ship ASTROLABE who arrived in Australia eight days only after the first fleet.
