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.

BBB63 (6122) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - AUG 10, 2012
12 oz bottle and served in NB Worthy glass: Pours a slightly hazy golden hue with a small fizzy head and minimal lace. The aroma has notes of apricot and orange zest, slight banana and pepper, some dusty esters with a hint of honey and grassy hops. Heavy biscuity malts not the crisper pils often found in Belgian Ales, there is a soapy note to the nose as well which is troubling. The taste is fruity and pale malt driven with a nice snap of spiciness towards the finish. A bit more acidity than many of its genre, almost has a witbier quality to it. Very light handed bitterness does find it’s way to the party late. The mouth feel is sprite and a tad chalky but it is quite refreshing, the best part of this beer. Overall it is simply an okay brew, nothing all that memorable but nicely drinkable.

Aurelius (4322) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - NOV 26, 2014
Tangy-sweet aroma, biotic, reminds me of duck sauce. Muddy tan. Okay label, twist off longneck. Mature flavor. Stewed citrus, mineral, lightly sweet, muted vinegar. Contemplative mouthfeel. Greenish hops on the back end. Interesting, good. Proof Bottle Shop.

biirusaikou (811) - - NOV 10, 2014
Nice mix of Belgian-style yeast/wheat flavors and fruity peach/apricot dry-hopping, touch of honey, dry peppery finish. A well-done Belgian IPA with a smooth fruit cake character.
