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.

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

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.

thedm (5281) - Fort Wayne, USA - DEC 25, 2012
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.

Golden pour, very fruity in both the smell and taste. Maltiness is there but it is fruit-dominated.

tmoreau (3263) - 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.

Nickls (2165) - Alexandria, Virginia, USA - FEB 18, 2013
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.

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.
