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 at the Bells Tap Takeover at Samís 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.

Suttree (6099) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - SEP 1, 2016
On tap at Suttreeís. Very murky orange, with a thin ring of foam. Smells really juicy and tart, with citrus, wine and funk. Itís pretty tart, actually, with a lot of citrus, plus a good deal of white wine. Lots of orange juice, as well.

solidfunk (7695) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - SEP 22, 2016
Very nice for a slightly sour beer but not much like Biere de Garde. Maroon pour with decent head and lacing. Light tangy finish. Nice stuff. Tap at Snally.

DYCSoccer17 (3637) - Woodland, California, USA - OCT 8, 2016
10 oz sample at Kickback in Jax...Aroma has hints of lacto and Brett. Light sweet caramel, too. Moderately hazy honey orange color with a medium tan head. Starts with a tart, lacto based flavor. Has a little smoke and milk flavor in the middle. Finishes with cereal grains. Lots of malt, balanced by some tart. Unique and good.

koleminer20 (2591) - Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA - OCT 9, 2016
On draft at Roll Out the Barrel 2016. The pour is a cloudy golden yellow with a thin white head and a couple spots of lace. The aroma is nicely tart and sour with a bright light fruit to it. There is a tart Brett funkiness, but itís well balanced. I like it. The flavor is a little more relaxed. Itís nice and fruity. There is a light tartness and a good balance here. There is a light barnyard funk and a decent farmhouse quality to it. The mouth feel is light and crisp with a brighter carbonation and a lingeringly sweet and tart finish. Itís interesting.

pantanap (3366) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - AUG 13, 2010
Draft at maduro pre-gtmw... Pours a slightly trasparent golden yellow haze with a thin to medium frothy head... aroma of old socks and a lemony citrus nite that take precedent. Almost like a lemony berlinner weiss in a godd way... Pale malt with lemon accents, some light hoppage that adds to the texture. Light to medium carbonation... Fairly decent

Tmoney99 (13590) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - OCT 6, 2010
Draft. Poured a hazy yellow color with an average white creamy head that lasted and produced good lacing. Moderate yeast, bread and sweet citrus aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium yeast sweet flavor with a smooth citrus sweet finish of average duration. Soft solid drinkable brew.

Honey and honey nose with light herbal hops and a touch of lemon. The taste is lightly sweet, lightly bitter with light lemon, some honey and bready malts, lots of dusty yeast. Rather pleasant.
