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.

Shared by DrSilverworm, thanks dude. Pours a deep yellow to light orange color. Smells good but not quite sure how to describe. Tastes like lemon more so than the orange peel advertised on the label. Tasty beer ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Scopey (7444) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 3, 2013
Tap at Crystal Beer Parlor, Savannah. It pours hazy orange-amber with a small white head. The nose is fresh orange, sherbet, candy, tinned peach, appetizer and lemon poppy seed muffin. The taste is zesty orange, lemon, earth, orange sponge cake, light spice, dough, some alcohol warmth and appletizer with a dry, bitter-sweet finish. Medium body, fine carbonation and slighty sticky mouth-feel. A touch on the sweet side, but prett tasty nonetheless. Decent stuff.

Prufrockstar (1145) - 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

Draft. Golden pour, slight hazy, with a thin white head. Doughy, orange zest, sweet bread, yeast, and light clove. A bit spicy. Not really my thing.

DuffMan (7032) - 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.

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
