COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Style
As a Bière de Garde, Acadie offers the style’s prominent malty aroma. A freshly poured beer is highly carbonated and bronze colored with a nice, thick off-white head. Malty with an underlying caramel sweetness, Acadie finishes medium-dry. The restrained use of continental hops provides its balanced hop bitterness. The restrained use of elegant Strisselspalt and Saaz hops offer a perfectly balanced bitterness with a very discreet hop aroma. Acadie is our summer/fall seasonal beer.

Story
France’s elegant contribution to the world’s beer styles is Bière de Garde - translated it means “beer for keeping” and has been brewed on farms there for centuries. Just as the French proudly brew their traditional ale, as descendants of survivors of Le Grand Dérangement we brew an artisanal version we call Acadie - in memory of our Acadian homeland. Acadie offers the smooth roundness of artisanal farmhouse ale, thus this French style beer is terrific paired with most any cuisine.

Decent Biere de Garde. Nice aroma - the yeast shines. Golden Blonde in color. Smooth flavor, nice sipper with a decent alcohol punch.

Copper color, slightly cloudy, with a marginal white head. Not much of an aroma. Very slight caramel aftertaste, but no other real character.

Lubiere (9904) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 12, 2014
A hazed Amber ale with a thick frothy light mocha head. In aroma, sweet fruity malt with light mineral notes, grassy hop, ok. In mouth, a rather harsh interpretation of a Bière de garde, with cereals, grassy hop, tart character, a bit off. On tap at Coney Island on tap.

deyholla (6613) - Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, USA - MAY 11, 2014
Bottle. Pours a clear amber with a white head that dissipates quickly to the edges. Aroma has lots of bread and grass notes with just a hint of grassy bitterness backing. Flavor has some light sweet grains with a good amount of bread and underlying light fruit and grass.
