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.

hotstuff (4864) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - OCT 13, 2014
Backlog rating on 11-08-2012 at Club Soda, Fort Wayne, IN. This draft beer has a very small white head with a long retention, opaque yellow body and spotty amounts of lacing. The aroma is bready malt and yeast. The flavor is bread malt, yeasty and very dry. The mouthfeel is smooth and this beer is medium bodied. This beer is very quaffable, has an enjoyable flavor and is worth trying.

On Draught,
Pours a pale yellow, very hazy with a nice head & good lacing on the glass.

The aroma is subtle but very nice, citric and lightly funky with a nice bready character. Light sweet smelling, chill.

The flavor is tart and has some light lemon zest, it’s got a bready malt thing and a big yeastiness. Very dry, pleasantly sour, coolio.

tmoreau (3695) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - MAR 19, 2014
On tap at Lunar Brewing Co. and dispensed to a tulip displaying a clear & bright, golden color, with a nice layer of soft white froth to the head, and clingy waves & spots of lacing. The nose started with more of a light mustiness than funk, a touch of dough, light spice, and lemon & apple notes. Light bodied, and well carbonated, the taste was similar, with moderate, earthy bitterness that expressed some dryness, and a clean, crisp finish. Tasty and quite pleasant on the palate.

On tap; interesting concept and always like more of this beer styyle. Would have liked to try the other 2 if I had the time. This one selected by the Wife. A fairly drinkable and bready beer; definitely dry. An unobjectionable, but hardly a standout beer.
