Brewed in honor of the Tour De France, "Maillot Jaune" or "Yellow Jersey" is a French style Bier De Garde. Very crisp and hoppy, this golden yellow ale is just the ticket for cheering on the amazing athletes who compete in this grueling two week race and the chance to wear the Maillot Jaune.

Thanks JCB. Nice sharp clean blonde pour with zero head. Very nice aroma with an almost geueze-y note. Vinous with white grape, hint of band-aid, and tropical fruit. Flavor is nice, tart and vinous with tropical fruit. Could use some body/mouthfeel. Very lean/light on the carbonation/watery.

December 29, 2012 - bottle at Brett’s tasting. Cloudy yellow pour with no head. Sour funk and lemon aroma. Taste was similar, but mild and a bit watery.

UPDATED: DEC 9, 2012 Pours golden with a sort of funky yet interesting aroma. Bread like flavors from the yeast. Very easy to drink with a nice tart finish. Very solid beer.

8/11/12. GTMW. Slightly hazy golden pour with a nice enough off-white head. Light tartness and soft wheat in the aroma with a bit of Belgian yeast, esters, and spiciness. Bready, malty flavor hits as well as more of a hint of tartness, citrus, lemon, and spice. Not bad!

Draft to taster at The Livery. Looks solid; yellowish-orange with white lacing. Smells and tastes doughy and mildly tart. Average on the palate. Okay.

cpetrone84 (1810) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 17, 2011
Pours a light golden yellow, hazy, tight white head with huge retention. The nose is a bit grainy, loads of peppery spice with a nice twang, notes of lemon and some earthy herbal notes. The flavor is more integrated but sweeter. A little bit too much sugar left over with a mellowed spice and nice lemon note. Some citrus hop with a notes of herbal hops. Medium body, a touch syrupy, lighter carb for the body.

13 oz glass at the brewpub. A hazy golden beer. Very small whitish head is little more than a ring. Mine is diacetyl. Buttery, thin. There is some fruit. This is infortunate. So, the brewer just brought outvanother glass apologizing that the wrong beer was poured before. This one is much nicer. Some very nice hops in the nose and flavor. Minteresting barnyard stuff going on, too. I would call this fruity and funky. Decent malt, too. A much nicer beer than earlier!
