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.

Light golden color, small white head that lingers with decent lacing. Aroma is hard to categorize, has some hints of citrus, honey, grass, floral, and barnyard. Taste is excellent, really complex on the palate with a nice spiciness but finishes smooth. I will gladly buy this again, I was mainly drawn to this beer to use the 22oz bottle for homebrews, but was pleasantly surprised!

Braudog (5647) - Hampton, Virginia, USA - APR 7, 2013
Bottle. Golden-orange, effervescent, and nicely topped with white foam. The aroma wafts several feet, fruity and full of esther. This drinks with a soda-like mouthfeel, rich with farmhouse flavors -- musty wood, garden herbs, bit of spice. (#4972, 4/7/2013)
