COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Clear golden color. White head. Nice lacing. First taste reminds me of popcorn. Weird I know. I guess it's the yeast. It's interesting ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle at 16 Tons, Eugene. Pours a clear golden amber, slight head. Some lacing. Slight malt and citrus notes in the aroma. Mouthfeel is kind of slippery, yeast very prominent in finish. Not bad, not great. Glad to see NB pushing themselves via the Lips of Faith series. They can’t all be home runs, but if you don’t try, you can’t succeed.

Elwood (3311) - Leesburg, Virginia, USA - NOV 25, 2012
Serving: Draft at Fire Works Leesburg. It pours a slightly greenish yellow with a slight white head. The nose is slightly floral an unusual herbal and citrus component. The flavor is spicy, slight earthy, with those herbal floral notes (I was thinking chrysanthemum but that’s not right. Perhaps that bergamot they mention in the description. Slightly catty as it warms and the alcohol seems to come out a bit more than you might like. The nose is unusually malt heavy as it warms, comparable to an imperial pilsner in my mind. The alcohol helps dry out the finish, but this one seems a little heavy on the tongue for the style. Interesting but not one I would return to.

deyholla (6713) - Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, USA - NOV 24, 2012
On tap at Fountainhead. Pours a clear gold with a white head that dissipates slowly to the edges and laces. Aroma has notes of crisp peach and grass with a prominent grain backbone. Flavor has more of a grain and cereal note throughout with a bit of a tart peach bite in the finish.

arkurzynski (1543) - Combined Locks, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 24, 2012
Pale amber with foamy white head and active carbonation. Aroma is moderately yeasty with wet wheat malt, light vanilla and spice, orange cream, and mild mixed citrus. Flavor is orange peel and coriander that fades to wheat malt and a lightly tangy, citrus finish. Moderate dry finish with lingering orange cream soda. Prickly, dry carbonation.

falco242 (280) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - NOV 23, 2012
Just a bit of thin lacy head on the light orange pour. Light citrus nose with a yeasty bready taste that ends with citrus peel and coriander. Pretty sweet/salty aftertaste too. Would be best on a hot day

badlizard (5538) - Berkeley, California, USA - NOV 23, 2012
On tap. Pale golden with no head. Sweet floral orange blossom and cognac-like aroma. Tastes somewhat like grand marnier with a sweet grain finish. Not bad.

Ratman197 (9952) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - NOV 23, 2012
Bomber poured a hazy gold with a lasting creamy white head. Aromas of yeast, bread dough, barnyard, light orange zest and light white pepper. Palate was medium bodied and smooth. Flavors of straw, lemon zest, yeast, light spiuce and light earthiness with a smooth dry lingering straw finish.

beersearcher (2334) - Glendale, California, USA - NOV 22, 2012
Poured a frothy head on an orange-ish beer. Aroma is muted but I detect a Belgian yeast quality and a hint of vanilla. The taste is very smooth and the alcohol does not show up at all. Well masked. Again a slight vanilla note in the taste with a slight citrus note next to it. Did not catch the Bergamot which is a shame because I like that flavor.

Bottle - good size foamy head, light gold color, very sweet honey-like aroma and flavor with mild citrus, mild hops, pretty syrupy palate, definitely not dry as the description states
