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.

Calisky (1630) - ALSACE, FRANCE - OCT 8, 2014
Couleur jaune dorée, légère mousse blanche. Nez houblonné un peu fruité. Gout houblonné une peu fruité, corps un peu petillant aspirine, amertume en fin de bouche, assez seche. Pas une IPA, pas une super belge, en dessous des Dieu du ciel habituelles.

Theydon_Bois (12596) - Tourist Town (West), Berkshire, ENGLAND - OCT 6, 2014
Keg at BD Camden, 30/09/14. Very lightly hazed golden blonde with a moderate off white covering that dissipates then retains. Nose is Belgian yeast esters, clove, vanilla, light nana, grain, spice, bready notes. Taste comprises mellow fruit notes, vanilla, yeast esters, caramel, grain. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, semi drying close. Adequate Belgian affair, not a huge amount going on.

Steverus0 (227) - Shreveport, Louisiana, USA - SEP 28, 2014
Aroma is slightly hoppy florals at first that are immediately overcome by the typical belgian fruity essence. Pour is pale straw with a thick, foamy head that lingers well. At once bitter and sweet with medium body and pleasantly balanced carbonation. Lots of Belgian flair in the middle palate which yields interestingly to the dry hops on the back end. Hmm, mouth is dry, better have another taste...

slowrunner77 (6935) - Reno, Nevada, USA - SEP 18, 2014
"Very floral and spicy aroma. More malt and Belgian yeast in the flavor, though some citrusy hops hang around too. Pretty nicely done. Dry, spicy finish."

BrewGoblin (545) - Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island, CANADA - SEP 15, 2014
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.

Sebilinz (1003) - Linz, AUSTRIA - SEP 12, 2014
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.
