French Country Christmas Ale (Biere De Garde)

Very different look to the bottle than the current picture in the BA db; this is a regular, 22 oz bomber with significantly different label but it is definitely the same beer (BdG etc.).
Pour is lively with a decent, well formed head. Body has amid-brown pour with some surprisingly lively carbonation.
Nose and tastes reflect a slightly rustic, quite earthy organic note with e earth tones and notes continuing quite strongly through the beer. Plenty of malts without much trace or hint of hop presence, the beer finishes quite sweet.
Very drinkable and definitely has that BdG, farmhouse (NOT funk) edge. A touch grainy and unrefined but at the same time authentic. Another, typically interesting beer from Southampton.
