Bière saisonnière. IPA Belge au blé. Une bière d’été riche aux reflets dorés et au profil sauvage: la Françoise Lelièvre! Sa garde-robe vieillotte et délabrée contrastant fortement avec les richesse de son mari, elle aurait usé d’astuce en détournant les regards avec une coiffure pour le moins accrocheuse...

On tap at the I’lle d’Orleans brew pub. Poured a hazy golden color with a small sized head. Fruity, some grains, yeast, and lighter toast.

Good beer here but man this is some funky brett! Comes off minty and a bit like urinal cakes but you know what it still works. Dusty, musty, funky, and dirty. Could use some bright flavors to give your palate a break from the astringent dirty brett but hey it aint bad.

Arôme qe je n’apprécie pas... Il me fait penser à des produits nettoyants ménagers. L’apparence est correct. Au goût cette espèce de note "produit ménager" se poursuit... Pas pour moi, je ne finirai pas la bouteille. Je suis même un peu écoeuré.

Jaune brumeux, mousseuse à souhait, odeur alléchante de houblon fleural et d’agrumes, mais le goût est un peu brut, terreux, arrière goût un peu raiche, manque de sucre, je l’ai trouvé moyenne.

Bottle from Tom10101. Aroma is all fruit esters and spicy phenolics. Quite a bit of citrus and pear with more clove and coriander. The phenolics are too strong. A slight sulfurous, poopy note but not too bad. Pours a cloudy orange color with a big, pillowy white head with fairly good retention. Fairly high lacing with faint legs. Flavor has some cracker malt character up front along with some fruit esters. Its rather bitter though with a fairly pronounced hop character mid to late palate. Some citrus, pear and stone fruit much of which seems to come from the hops. Some fairly strong pine resin as well. Moderately strong bitterness with some light phenolic notes. The aroma doesn’t really give you much of an idea that the beer would be so hop forward in the flavor. Mouthfeel is medium bodied with medium high carbonation. Low hop astringency and low alcohol warmth. Overall an alright beer but its way too hop forward to be what I thought was a Saison. I guess this more of a Belgian IPA in which case there are not enough hops in the aroma, though as it warns what I thought was cloves might be spicy noble hops.

Major thanks to Tommy for this! Poured into my RBAG tulip glass, Beautiful apricot amber pour, loads of white creamy head. Nice citrus/tropical fruit notes, some hops, interesting aroma. Well consider me surprised, mild tropical fruit notes commingle perfectly with the hops that makes for a slightly grapefruit/tropical fruit/awesomeness bitter aftertaste, crazy good drinkability, wow love this...just a really really nice beer. I would drink this locally all the time if I could get it.

Bottle: Poured a murky light amber color ale with a large foamy head with good retention and some good lacing. Aroma of sweet wheat malt notes with nice floral hops aroma mixing well with the wheat malt. Taste is a very refreshing mix between some bubblegum wheat malty notes with some floral and dry hoppy notes. Body is quite full with good carbonation and no apparent alcohol. Very enjoyable mix between the wheat malt notes with the dry and floral aroma with light fruity ester. I would probably move this one to more regular production if I was the brewer.
