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.

A Mes rate: bottle thanks to Tom.
Heavy yeast on the nose, some sugar and maybe a little pear. Murky yellow orange with a thin white film topping. Flavour is similar. Yeasty and spicy. Fairly dull but very drinkable. Alcohol is well hidden. Erm, yeah!

Hansen (6495) - Assentoft, DENMARK - JAN 27, 2012
Dark yellow coloured and hazy. Has tiny particles. White head, mostly lasting. Aroma is heavy malty, light bread, moderate yeasty. Flavor starts heavy sweet and finish light bitter. Cremy texture and soft carbonation.

Scopey (6321) - 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.

larsga (6143) - Oslo, NORWAY - AUG 31, 2012
Medium offwhite head. Hazy amber body with carbonation. Wooden vanilla and cheese aroma with raspberry notes. Dryish spicy seedes of paradise, caramel and sugary malts taste with buttery grassy spicy notes. Mid-bodied. Mild, soft, buttery mouthfeel. Dryish spicy buttery vinous honey aftertaste with caramelly herbal notes. Nice, interesting, and unusual. (0.75l bottle, from Kihoskh, Copenhagen, last year.)

Rastacouere (6123) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 27, 2005
Cloudy gold, raising a nice 1cm foamy keeper proposing light and elegant lacing. Slightly tart, soft orange and zesty citrus nose, softly spicy yeastiness pairing along weirder grassy influenced vinegar eggs and ice cream reminding flavors. Natural wheatiness making it akin to cereals. Pepper and curacao oriented yeast hints while hops add a spiciness of their own, lemony. Grainy, desserty and with a cheesestick fit that sets it apart. Effervescent big bubbled light-medium body. Most interesting. One of those event-worthy never heard of, could be gimmicky, beers that can’t but give you absolutely 0 expectation, but come up as far above average and confirms you’re in the right business as a beer seeker.

CapFlu (4482) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 28, 2005
(750ml bottle) Sampled at Goldorak’s Sunday MTL Gathering. Good god - what am I drinking - Cheese??? Pours a white, lasting head with a cloudy, sediment-filles head and a orange-gold body. Nose is elusive - somewhat hemp, perfume and yeasty. Peppery flavour, grassy and tart. Lemon, yeasty finish. Very good.
