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.

Bottle from Specs. Pale, clear, dirty water looking amber with a small whitish head. Aroma of bread, barnyard, light citrus, and earth. Taste is very bready and yeasty with a hint of sweet fruit. Alcohol is subtle. Medium body.

bhensonb (10343) - Woodland, California, USA - NOV 11, 2012
Bomber from Whole Foods in Davis, CA. Pours hazy gold with a foamy off-white head. Aroma is yeasty and earthy with a touch of citrus. Med body. Foamy carb. Flavor is yeasty, a little earthy, has a touch of spice and/or zest. It finishes a bit sweeter than expected. Drinkable, fairly tasty, but not as earthy as hoped.

Suttree (4902) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - NOV 11, 2012
Golden orange, nice frothy white head. Fresh baked bread aroma, with notes of coriander and orange. Flavor is rich full bodied French bread, with some spicy notes, plus a light grassy finish. Pretty hearty, as well. Really tasty, I suspect I will be drinking more of this in the future...

after4ever (5928) - Brier, Washington, USA - NOV 7, 2012
Draft at ebp. Pours a hazy medium gole with a loose white head. Big funky nose--nice barnyard effect. Creamy medium body with soft carb. Tangy oranges, basement, and minerals on the mid palate. Dry and pretty interesting. Could be a little livelier and more complex.

riversideAK (5560) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - NOV 6, 2012
Smells like fruit loops lavender a little dust alcohol. Pours hazy golden creamy white head. Flavors of lavender flowers oranges fruit loops alcohol dust a little bread. Floral finish lingers w alcohol. Dries out. Nice bubbles. Good effort. Somewhat strong.

NielsenRatings (8273) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - NOV 5, 2012
Bottle @ home, picked up at Wilbur’s Foco. Pours a clear golden appearance with a fluffy, off-white head. Super floral, almost cleanser-like, light lemon, dry straw, a bit musty aroma. Tangy, lavender, quite floral/potpourri, tart lemon, dry, a touch cheese-like flavor. Kind of an interesting beer, but not my favorite.

BOLTZ7555 (2701) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - NOV 3, 2012
14-karat pour with a wispy white head that left a spattering of lacing inside the glass. Candied citrus, lemon grass, orange peel, yeast, honey, and funk all reside in the brew. Crisp, hints of acidity and a little funky. Bright and enjoyable...will undoubtedly pick up again.

From the bottle, golden pour, white head. Orange peel, yeast and funk. Taste is citrusy, bread with a nice minor tart bite. It’s good, enjoyable brew.
