Beach City Beach de Garde

Today I went to Slater's 50/50 with my friends and to drink I ordered a beer flight.

Smell: In comparison to the Hangar 24 Belgian Summer Ale, the Beach de Garde had a darker, more mellow smell.
Color: In addition, it appeared to have an orange or perhaps red color.
Taste 1: After drinking some water, I tasted the Beach de Garde and noted it was stronger, i.e., it had a more alcoholic taste to it, than the Anderson Valley Summer Solstice.
Taste 2: Coming around to all the beers for a second taste, I found the Beach de Garde was the most unpleasant.
Taste 3: After finishing the Belgian Summer Ale, I decided to finish the Beach de Garde so I could end with the Summer Solstice and Saint Archer Coffee Cream Porter. While still the most unpleasant, it was easier to drink than before.
