Famous in Michigan for farmhouse ales, our friends at Brewery Viviant introduced us to their biere de garde ale yeast strain. From there, we imagined a slightly tart, intentionally dry beer with hints of bergamot citrus that pairs perfectly with French cheeses.

Butters (4047) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - DEC 24, 2012
Sampled with Kristen on Christmas 2012. Clearish straw colored pour with suspended small particulate throughout and sudsy white head. Nose of citrus lemon cleanser, but not unpleasant. Flavor is very fresh and refreshing with lemon peel, very slight tartness, slight yeastiness, hints of vanilla, and citrus. This was actually a quite nice surprise, and a great colab for these guys.

Draft to taster. Looks solid; a transparent gold with white lacing. Smells solid too; tart and minty. Tastes like it smells with an average mouthfeel. I get some tea notes in there too. Pleasantly interesting.

Lukaduke (3038) - Gray, Maine, USA - DEC 23, 2012
Bottle thanks to adnielson ! Pours a yellow golden color with a pretty viscous body and a limited head... The nose is slightly tangy with nice lemon bready sourdough and big floral notes with a touch of honey sweetness. On the palate its taste alot like it smells. The body is very viscous leaving a coating on the mouth that is a bit to much for my liking. They flavors are nice and pretty complex I would just like a touch more bubble to lighen up the body of the beer.

johnnyoski (445) - Macomb, Michigan, USA - DEC 18, 2012
Bomber. Mostly clear, golden color with a foamy white head. Aroma is a mixture of yeast, sourdough and citrus. Funky cheese-like flavor. Leaves a slight sour aftertaste that makes your mouth pucker. Average carbonation with a mostly dry texture. Different, but I preferred the traditional Biere de Garde previously offered in this series.

Dogbrick (11610) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - DEC 17, 2012
This brew is a clear pale orange color with a medium white head that recedes steadily. Strings of lacing on the glass. The aroma contains citrus, yeast and malt. Medium body with flavors of mildly tart fruit, earthy yeast and biscuit malt. The finish is fruity with a fresh citrus aftertaste. Decent overall.

Pour from bottle. Taste is lemon, funk, dough and hay. No real bite or presence of alchohol. So-so.
