COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Dernière volonté (French for "Last Will") is a mix of Belgian and English brewing traditions. Complex flavours of hop flowers and spicy, fruity esters from our belgian yeast are perfectly balanced with the robust flavours and aromas of malt. The finish is commandeered by an assertive aroma from dry-hopping.

When Belgium and IPAs hang out, everyone wins. This lil’ stinker is no exception. The typical musty, bubblegummed yeasty dank of Belgium mushes into the floral and resin hops backboned by good ol’ caramel. A hazy straw bomb with a quickly dissipating white head that laces correctly. Bittersweet with hints of lemon, hops and honey, this is a joy to drink. Mid-low carbonation keeps the body smooth as silk. A great marriage of styles.

Bottle. Cloudy orange body with white head. Aroma is fruity yeast with a little bit of sourness. Taste is dried fruit with some spices and some pepper. Aftertaste is medium bitter and dry. Nice one.

Pours a clear amber with light head. Aromas of Belgian yeast; dried bananas, burnt rubber, and a bit of cloves. Flavors of stoned fruit, candy, yeast, toasted malts, and banana/rubber with some floral notes.

bjakk (345) - Skagafjordur, ICELAND - SEP 9, 2014
Yellow, and cloudy with white foam that lasts. Mild sour earthy apricot. Malt in the first sip, with a strong flavour of apricot. Hint of alcohol. Nice sweet grape fruit bitterness in the aftertaste that grows. High in carbon. From a bottle, a gift from Amy

Hidden_Pooch (304) - Stratford, Prince Edward Island, CANADA - SEP 8, 2014
Mine had a different picture, but I do believe this is correct. Poured a dark hazy straw with a big white creamy head. Aroma was of citrus, floral hops, basement, apples, and yeast. Tasted fruity with light gum, banana, and wheat. Had a chewy medium body with low carbonation. Was a strong bitter tongue coater as well. Very quaffy and quite a stand out among other Belgians.

ryecatcher (787) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - SEP 2, 2014
12 oz. bottle. Pours a hazy, deep brassy gold, medium whitish head with very nice retention and okay lacing. Nose is big grassiness, some burnt caramel, dried oranges, mild yeasty presence. Mouth is medium bodied, semi-sticky, lightly sweet up front and then becomes rather dry and light bitterness throughout. Caramel, orange peel, hints of white pepper and vanilla toward finish. Tasty.

Bottle sample at a tasting, thanks Vova. Hazy orange with a nice creamy head. Fruity and hoppy aroma. Sweet with fruity, yeasty and caramel malts flavors. Medium-bodied, sticky syrupy mouthfeel. Decent.

Apparence: D?une couleur jaune paille opaque, elle est coiffée d?une bonne mousse d?une bonne durée. Effervescence difficile à évaluer, mais semble quasi inexistante. Arômes: Au nez, ce sont des arômes de malt et des épices. Saveurs: En bouche, c’est un corps moyen. Au goût, c’est les épices qui attaquent pour être suivit par le malt avant de laisser place à l’amertume du houblon. De durée moyenne, il y a une très légère effervescence. Fiche technique Style: IPA Style Belge Format: 341 ml Taux d?alcool : 7%

Bottle sample at a tasting at Stas’s place. Thanks Vova. Slightly hazy yellow-gold with a white head. Aroma of some citric hops, yeast and mild spiciness. Sweetish flavor with yeast, some fruitiness, some spiciness, citric hops and a bitter finish. Medium-bodied.
