COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our interpretation of a traditional Biere De Garde. Brewed in collaboration with Paul Vaughn utilizing fresh ground Tennessee Grits. Clean, malty, and unassuming. This beer is also the base for Paul’s Boutique, our brett/bacteria port barrel Biere De Garde.

Taster @ the brewpub, Very interesting concept with them grits. The malt element really surprised me. The flavor has a grainy base complemented by caramel malts, corn husk notes. A nice creamy mouthfeel that makes it easy to drink. The grain and the malt are a slightly different take. And I can’t remember the last time I eat Grits. At least 7 or 8 years ago visiting a buddy in South Carolina. But it does have a rustic feel to it. Interesting to try and its almost gone, so I was happy to try it.

Dark ruby red, slightly brown 3 finger creamy head Nice amber malt nose. Nice spelt corn and wheat as well. Slightly sweet. Taste is very malty but in a masculine up front way and not boozy. Candied sugar finish. Wheat and grist. Some cherry tones

Taster at the source. Smell is heavy caramel malts and sweetness. Taste is again sweet caramel and alcohol. Not too impressed but this is just a base beer for something wonderful down the road

Pours a deep reddish copper color with a half finger of khaki foam. The nose is subtle with caramel malt, toast, a touch of leather plum and cherry. The palate is grainy with a nice balance between toasted caramel malts, smidgen of honeyed sweetness and some dry fruit ester... nice little bitter kick in the finish too. Very drinkable but lacking complexity. That being said this is a base beer and knowing the treatment this beer is getting in that big ole port barrel makes me SMILE !

6.39% abv. Growler refill from the source for $8. A grit-based Bière de Garde? Cool! To snifter it pours a rusted ruby-brown with a thin off-white ring which rested atop. Aromas of sweet potatoes, corn, edamame, American hops, clementines, maple leaves, artichokes, and caramelized onions. Interesting. Tastes refreshingly crisp, clean and just the tiniest bit malty portraying notes of russet potatoes, green tea, maize, and earthy & medicinal hops. Ends with cornstarch, caramel, toast, and Bible paper. Probably the first Blue Lobster beer I won’t be buying again. Drinkable, refreshing and worth the trip, but just not something I’m crazy for. A little too bland. Grits don’t add much.
