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.

corby112 (2736) - philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 13, 2015
Pours a dark golden amber/copper color with a half finger white head that quickly settles into a very thin ring. Minimal spotty lacing left behind. Slightly earthy aroma with peppery spice, grassy hops, faint farmhouse funk and sweet malt. Some pepper and resinous hops along with a very subtle barnyard farmhouse character. This is followed by sweet malt flavors of red fruits, caramel and toffee. The nose is blander than expected and feels more like a biere de garde than a dark saison/farmhouse. On the fuller end of medium bodied with peppery spice and an earthy presence that lingers over the floral notes, hop bitterness, light fruit and malt backbone into a slightly dry finish. Subtle musty/funky farmhouse character along with pepper and clove. Light malt notes of bread and biscuit followed by sweeter dark fruit notes, notably red apple and dark berries. Complex, full bodied, well balanced and easy to drink.

Aroma is sour, funk, nice. Appearance is rust orange, off white head. Taste is sour and funky. Mouthfeel is very crisp, hard carbonation. Overall, this is very nicely done.

hotstuff (4531) - 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 tan head that mostly diminishes, hazy amber body, minimal carbonation observed, and one ring of lacing. The aroma is bready, caramel malt, fruity, and sweet. The flavor mimics the aroma. The mouthfeel is light carbonation and this beer is medium bodied. This beer is quaffable, has a good flavor and is worth trying.

I haven’t had a lot of bier de garde’s... But this is quite easily the best one. Very nice fresh red berries on the nose. Malty and sweet up front with a nice tangy fruity finish. Dry and refreshing.

This one poured a light amber color with a white head. Aroma was of caramel, metal, dust, and grass. Flavor was similar, light rustic character and apple notes, but mainly caramel and grainy.

umich03jm (2996) - 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.
