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.

Thank you Jim Daley for your generous wedding present. Beer poured a clear golden blond. Taste was yeasty, sweet, with a dry bitter finish. Fantastico!

BOD 3/15. Medium amber murky pour with suspended particulate matter from bottle conditioning. World class head volume, lacing and retention. Rich world class nose of fruity esters coupled with a light tart airiness. Peach, plum, pineapple, grape and orange coupled with a touch of pepper over a light Belgian base. Light medium body with a smooth texture. World class carbonation with a nice effervescent middle and a finely bubbled prickly finish perfectly paired with the body. The flavor profile is almost world class, but falls just a bit short due to a very light metallic note which arrives and lingers in the finish. Otherwise, this one is a very tasty Belgian ale with a world class fruity ester profile. Flavors from the nose all appear with some separation. The sweeter flavors appear after the middle corresponding with maximum balanced sweetness. The middle provides a very light rind bitterness. The finish is a slow fade of fruit and the light metallic note.

Dark yellow pour, touch of orange. Aroma is yeast, but too much, touch of citrus. Taste is musty, smoke, almost wheaty. ...creamy feel. Not as good as the flying fish grand xru which I am trying side by side.

DandyWolfFloyd (984) - Jim Thorpe, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 21, 2015
Aroma - some floral attributes, as well as white flesh fruit, and Brettanomyce yeast. There is some spices as well. Appearance - body jonquil yellow, with some very fine particles, and some nucleation; the head is white and about 1’2" and settles into a small foam. Some lacing. Taste - is lightly sweet and a faint bit tart. There is a floral quality, some coriander spice, there is some very light fruit. The yeast is Belgian (Brettanomyce). Palate - light body, lively carbonation, and dry

Bule (1655) - California, USA - DEC 16, 2015
12oz bottle pours a hazy yellow Amber color with a bit of frothy head. Yeast flavors overpower a little though I did end up with the dregs in my glass.

Stoned99 (977) - Quebec, CANADA - DEC 11, 2015
341ml Bottle from 4 pack of all variant bought at Marché Village. Aroma: nice citrus, Belgian yeast giving some green apples, spices including some cloves. App: cloudy golden with a good orange tint, small white head, shy bubbly lacing. Taste and palate: full body, soft carbonation, clean light bitter finish. Overall: not sure why I never rated this one. Anyway this is well made. A typical Belgian style. Really easy to drink.

Idiosynkrasie (5865) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - OCT 17, 2015
341ml bottle. Slightly cloudy, golden colour with small to average, thick, frothy, half-way lasting, minimally lacing, white head. Sweet-ish, floral, fruity and slightly spicy aroma, hints of apple purée and speculoos. Taste is caramel malty, minimally floral, slightly spicy and fruity hoppy overtones, apple purée and speculoos again, a peppery touch; lasting bitter hoppy finish.

Bottle at home from brewdog online, 1yr old
fruity bubble gum esters, boozy notes, sweet, achouffe like. Hazy pale burnished blonde with fluffy offwhite head collapsing to lacing. Super carbonated fruity, yeast esters, warming, spicey, v Belgian.

Poured a good size foamy white head, with sediments clearly visible. Fairly hazy appearance. Strong cirtus/hops aromas. Great citrus flavours, with lemons, oranges, and others coming through. Also a bit yeasty, very tasty and smooth. Pretty good tangy mouthfeel. This one is clearly not an obvious strong beer, even with the 7% abv. Its’s not quite apparent at first, great easy drinking beer. Last Will? Pretty darn close!
