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.

Poured from a large bottle, the color is a golden yellow with a small white head that dissipates quickly. I smell citrus, yeast and honey. I taste some spice, hay, honey and malt. It has a nice tart clean finish. Nice....

DiarmaidBHK (3386) - Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 7, 2013
Bottled from Wegmans sterling. Pouts golden with an inch if white foam. Kind of sweet and perfumed on the tongue. Rates like earl grey tea on the tongue. Very dry on the finish. Nice!

Bottle from Wegmans Sterling - pours hazy gold with yeast floaters. Aroma remind me of earl grey tea with some citrus and wheat. Taste is sweet with some dryness in the mid palate. Nice!

phaleslu (6397) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - AUG 28, 2013
Pour from a bottle at the brewery. Pours a bright, semi-cloudy gold that is deeper orange at the wider part of the glass and has a small white head. Notes of sweet and bready malts, melon, dried papaya, dry dough, and some farmhouse funk. Medium-bodied, with a sweet, dry, bready mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Nice BDG.

On tap @ Malibu Sundowner. Clear golden pour with a white head. Floral, earthy, and spicy notes on the nose. Some sweet malt, soap, yeast, and a hint of lemon peel. Flavors of soap, floral hops, and some spices. Sweet malt, light lemon, and grass. Maybe a bit of lemon.
