COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottle
Brewed at De Proefbrouwerij until 2005
Made in association with Philippe Olivier, a master cheesemaker, to accompany the cheeses made in the region.

C’est d’un savant dosage des orges maltées et du choix d’un houblon aromatique que cette bière tire son parfum original. L’équilibre de son nez fruité et son amertume délicate font que, tout naturellement, les fromages de terroirs typés des Pays du Nord et de l’Est de la France sont aujourd’hui sublimés avec la bière à Frometon.

Scopey (6671) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 13, 2011
Bottle at Nate’s Birthday Bash, thanks to EdKing. It pours hazy golden yellow, with a fluffy white head. The nose is spice, bread and yeast. The taste is sweet orange pith, dough, spice, yeast, earth and some alcohol warmth. Medium body, lively carbonation and foamy mouth-feel. Ok, but doesn’t do much for me.

Nate2Gs Birthday Bash at Kernel. Cheers to Ed King for this one. Hazy gold beer, good off white head. Light palate - a little soft and a little dry. Sweetish caramel malt. Just a bare trace of hops. Soft froth finish. Ok if somewhat one dimensional.

Leighton (10702) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 6, 2011
Bottle at Nate’s Massive Kernel Birthday Piss-Up. Pours a lightly cloudy gold with a white head. Malty aroma. Very sweet flavor, lots of malt. Notes of caramel, sugar, doughy bread. Medium to full bodied with average carbonation. Lightly warming finish, more sugar, bread, honey and caramel. Very sweet but fun stuff.

harrisoni (13578) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - NOV 5, 2011
Bottle at Kernel Brewery. Thanks to Ed King. Cloudy gold lasting white head. Yeasty. Its a belgian french biere de garde very earthy on finish. Ok if not great.

EdKing (1837) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 13, 2011
UPDATED: AUG 14, 2011 Bottle from La Fromagerie, Marlebone Village. Pours slightly hazy orange with a huge foaming head. Nose is a beautiful deep buttery toffee malt aroma. Like buttered popcorn, but deeper and more roasted. Also some cereal and freshly baked biscuit in there. Taste is crisp buttery malt and subtle grassy hop bitterness. Would go great with a gooey french cheese. (not sure why this is down as a whitbier. If you ask me it’s abbey tripel)

yngwie (13346) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUL 22, 2011
Bottle, 75cl, corked. It pours a clear, golden body and a small, off-white head and some lacings. It is quite sugary on the nose, fruity and with a hint of spices. A bit sweet and sugary on the palate too, medium bodied and with a pleasant level of carbonation. Fruity and sweet flavor with a hint of bitterness towards the end. Well, I’m not sure it’s the perfect beer to have with a slice of cheese, but it ain’t bad either. 110722
