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.

Draft at Bell’s 28th birthday party at Reno’s East. Very light hazy yellow. Hay, pilsner and grape. Very light.

Poured a light cloudy yellow into a pint glass. Aroma zesty as in pepper and coriander. Flavor was grassy, citrus orange and spicy. Had back to back with another Bell’s Biere de Garde and both were okay but just kind of plain. Has a light body with a dry finish. Not one of my favorites in this tap tackover but happy a tried it.

On tap at the Eccentric Cafe. Another one of Bells’ more average fair, with a good malty backing and some spicy grains. Pour was deep amber-mahoganny in color, with minimal head, and medium translucent body. The aroma was hazy, with some rich malts, caramel, bready cookie, and herbal spice. The flavor played off the aroma well, with some sweet dark fruits, caramel, cookie, and herbal hops. Overall, not terribly impressive, but still decently interesting.

Draft sample at the Michigan Brewers Guild Fall Fest. Hazy yellow with nice white head. Aroma of bread and citrus. Taste is lightly sweet and tart, with crisp acidic mouthfeel.

On Tap at Trion in New Haven, Indiana. Poured a clear goldish yellow, with slight whitish head...aroma is slightly funky lemon/apple mixture. Nothing overwhelming in the taste, slight citrus, bready, dry and crisp. Clean finish. This one would go well with a variety of meals.
