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.

frankenkitty (1959) - Oak Lawn, Illinois, USA - JAN 1, 2011
Pours a dense amber body fraught with beautiful particulate beneath a creamy, lasting white head. Deep, fruity aroma... a sweet cocktail of cherries, peach, tangerine with a pleasing waft of alcohol as well as remnants of tea leaves, tree leaves and honey. The marriage of Belgium & England is well-played. Flavor leans towards the latter as the tongue is first met by the taste of an English IPA before it opens up to sweeter fruitiness, a cheesish yeastiness and, once again, a sweet drop of honey. Lightly astringent yet the flavors last with a complex sweet-yet-bitter spiciness. Quite incredible. ~~~~~~~ Single 12 oz. bottle from Archer Liquors, Chicago.

Steverus0 (181) - 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 (3443) - 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 (316) - 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.

budedou (394) - Saint Etienne, FRANCE - SEP 11, 2014
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 (346) - 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
