COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The legend goes... many midnight drivers near White Rock Lake have reported a mysterious female hitchhiker asking for a ride home. She always has long flowing hair, a sopping white dress, and claims either her car or boat is at the bottom of reservoir. But as the driver chauffeurs her home, the "Lake of the Lake" has a nasty habit of vanishing into the night, leaving only a puddle of water in the backseat where she once sat. Our Biere de Garde, or "kept beer," is a fitting tribute to this phantom. With a malty flavor as rich as her legend and rustic farmhouse roots, it’s just the thing to toast a ghost. But be careful, it also tends to suddently disappear. As a way ot honor our dual heritage, we created The Legendary Series--specially brewed biers inspired by Belgian and local mythologies. Schol!

TXBadger (1381) - Dallas, Texas, USA - APR 25, 2014
Pours a faint orange color, slight amberish. Caramel and malt on the nose, with sweetness. This is sweet on the palate, not getting much malt or bready notes, mainly just sweetness.

Pours an orange color. Earthy caramel in the foreground with some fruit and citrus in on the finish. Odd mouthfeel.

5000 (6300) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - NOV 6, 2013
Bottle:   Dirty orangish straw, thin to moderate frothy off-white head, spotty lacing.   Sweet bready mealiness on the nose, a slight melon like sweetness.   Not all that musty or barnish that seems to be a shallow part of the style.   Plus at 7.5% its higher than most.   Sweet and bready on the tongue, almost too sweet.   Some mealy and cereal like presense on the backside.   A touch of dark pitted fruit shows up midway through but vanishes.   Feels almost like a really pale American version of a Belgian Dubbel.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate to full.   Feels pretty thick.   Finishes sweet, bready, mealy, with some cereal notes.   At times faint dark pitted fruit.   Pale version of an American made Belgian Dubbel, yep... Thanks Bill!

dfinney23 (1672) - Houston, Texas, USA - OCT 27, 2013
Bottle pours copper with a thin cream-colored head. Nice blend of subtle aromas and flavors -- yeast, fruit, malt, grass, toffee, a bit of funk. Perhaps a tad too sweet.

nimbleprop (4869) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - OCT 17, 2013
Sampled at GABF. Pours a hazy orange with some eggshell head. Nose of orange, sweet, perfume, herbs. Tastes like orange concentrate, not much else. Clean finish. Weird.

deyholla (6633) - Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, USA - SEP 28, 2013
Bottle thanks to Sarah! Pours a clear amber red with a white head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has notes of tofee, caramel, light plastic, flora and sweet grains. Flavor has toffee and sweet bread with some underlying sweet fruits.

JStax (2980) - Devola/Marietta, Ohio, USA - SEP 15, 2013
22 ounce bottle thanks to Errl. Pours a semi-hazy copper with a white head of foam. Not much retention. In the aroma I get banana and a touch of spice. Earthy sweetness dominates the taste with a bit of heat coming across on the back of the tongue. Musty. Pretty interesting. Lively carbonation.

brokensail (10916) - Orange County, California, USA - JUL 28, 2013
Bottle shared by Bobby. Orange pour with a white head. Cloyingly sweet pear, apple, and grape. Metal, some caramel, grass, and solvent. The flavor is no good either. Solvent, metal, and cloying sugar and fruit. Apples, pear, grape, caramel, and some grass.

Bottle thanks to t0rin0. Dark amber Fizzy pour. Apple sauce, putrid grain, rotten fruit, and sweet chemical soup. This is bad.

GT2 (8432) - San Diego County, California, USA - JUL 22, 2013
651mL shared by t0rin0. Pours a cloudy golden with weak foam. Nose is tomato and salt. Taste is not drinkable- heavy metallic and insane acrid paperiness are chemical/toxic like with palate wrecking properties. An instant drainpour at a high level tasting like this. Run away!
