The first in a three-part series of interpretations on the French Biere de Garde style, Le Batteur leads with a distinctive yeast aromatic character mixed with light bready notes. Noticeably dry, the finish is crisp with a mild, refreshing acidity. The French term for a drummer, Le Batteur takes its name from a component of a classic jazz trio.

Tap, CK. Vibrant hay yellow that’s very hazy. Cistrusy and hay in the aroma, slight gum, spearmint too. Nicely citric and a little hay that’s fresh and nice. Some light fruit. Lighter body with tight carbonation.

This draft brew from a restaurant poured a small sized head of foamy finely sized white colored bubbles that were quickly diminishing and left behind a no visible carbonation opaque dark yellow colored body. The aroma was citrus and malty. The mouth feel was very tingly at the start and at the finish. The flavor contained notes of citrus banana and malt. Delicious and one I would certainly buy again.

Tap at the Bells Tap Takeover at Sam’s Quik Shop. Pours a very hazy straw gold with a small but mighty white head. Nose of wheat, lemon, straw, hay, and cereal. Palate is dry, then sweet, then final dryness at the end. Very wheaty for the style.
