COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Ughsmash (7126) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 16, 2011
On tap at Maduro. Poured clear, bright golden with a tall, creamy white head. The aroma picked up crisp lemon and grass over a complementary bready base.. really enjoyed it. The flavor found meaty lemon and bread at the core, with more tart lemon, wheat, and dry white spices around.. perfect balance, with lovely, lingering lemon on the dry finish. Lighter-bodied and crisp on the palate.. dry and refreshing.. very good stuff.

deyholla (6613) - Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, USA - OCT 24, 2010
Sampled from the tap at the 2010 MBG Fall Fest. Poured a hazy gold with a with a white head that lasted throughout the beer. Aroma had some citrus (orange, lemon and grapefruit) some acidity and a bit dry. Flavor had more of a bread note with the citrus becoming a background note. The finish did have a decent amount of acidity as well as being slightly dry.
