The second in the series, Le Pianiste starts as a malt forward beer, combining biscuity, breadcrust notes with a light caramel flavor. Noticeably dry, the finish is crisp with a lively, refreshing acidity.

umich03jm (3488) - Flat Rock, Michigan, USA - NOV 20, 2013
Draft at World of Beer, Ann Arbor. Pours a copper/amber color with a bubbly but thick white head that lingers nicely. Aroma has a light must to it. Very yeasty with some biscuits, red fruit, and Belgian-type spices. Taste is odd. The red fruit, yeast and spices don’t seem to blend well together. Light acidic finish. Bubbly carbonation. Not bad but not my kinda beer.

arminjewell (9251) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - OCT 30, 2013
Pour on tap at APN 2013, clear orange pour with thin white head, aroma brought biscuit, bread and lots of spice notes, hints of grain, slight red fruits, touch of yeasty qualities in there as well. Taste is a mix of lots of yeast, spice, hints of red fruits mixing into a touch of red fruits, slight caramel, more bready notes, finishing sweet.

Miked1687 (608) - Buffalo, New York, USA - OCT 27, 2013
Draft at Blue monk. hazy orange Amber pour worth a thick off white head. Nose is sweet, some malt. Nothing stands out too much. Taste is big on yeast and mild malt. The finish is medium long and earthy. Some gentle bitter hop in there too, but nothing too crazy.

swoopjones (7021) - Buffalo, New York, USA - OCT 22, 2013
Draft at Blue Monk, orange medium bodies pour fruity yeastiness, light st Joseph’s aspirin, nothing screaming Belgian/ bierede garde here. Pleasant to drink but far from mind blowing

Copper color little head lightly sweet aroma little character. Fizzy mouthvfeel. A bier de guard with a tiny hint of grass in the finish and a hint of brown sugar. I’ll pass

koleminer20 (2437) - Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA - OCT 5, 2013
On draft at Sidetrack. The pour is a nice orangey gold. Nice clingy lace. Aroma is somewhat citrusy, more Belgian than anything. Nice hoppiness and fruitiness. Not crazy the Belgian type of flavors coming through. Mostly hoppy and Belgian. Not bad, but not my bread and butter by any means ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

All Pints North, 2013. I was surprised I had not rated this. Dry and herbal with spices and flowers. The yeast is there. Good palate, and it doesn’t have the dry, dusty quality of so many biere de garde beers past their prime by the time they get to the states.
