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.

Prufrockstar (797) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JUN 29, 2013
Bottle. Aroma of fruit loops right out the gate. Pours nearly clear (some sediments floating around) with thin white head and irregular lacing. Cheesy, mandarin oranges as well. Taste finishes with pepper and thyme. Cheese and synthetic, fruit loop taste as well. Dry and spicy. Light body. Others at this tasting really liked this, but I had a hard time finishing my 4 oz pour. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

DuffMan (6460) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - JUN 16, 2013
Bottle, shared with my in-laws. Hazy orange-tinted gold. Very doughy yeasty aroma, some brothy character like cooked noodles, lightly cheesy. Doughy, yeasty body of flavours, brightened by some orange and spice. Intriguing to me, but not a favourite.

DenverBrew (4) - - JUN 12, 2013 does not count
Orange peel nose with tart hits and some alcohol notes and typical yeast farmhouse scent. Clean in the mouth with slight orange notes and dry finish. Alcohol warmth follows. Very slight caramel notes in nose and taste as it warms. Great linger of dry and crisp. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

I like it real good. There’s a hint of spice to it that one doesn’t quite grasp... I guess it’s from the bergamot. Medium bodied, this beer is refreshing but packs an alcoholic punch.
