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.

From a 22 oz bottle shared in Breckenridge CO. Pours a hazy dark yellow with a white head. Aroma of yeast and citrus. Highly carbonated mouthfeel. Flavors of orange and mild spice. Tart finish.

Crisp, completely clear orange coloured body with a faint peach glow and a thinnish, one centimetre tall white head. Aroma of curacao, coriander seed, bubble gum, yeast, pale malt, wheat and a bit of lemons - very nice. Medium-bodied; Assertive yeast flavour with a lot of wheat, some pungent sugars of unfinished caster sugar, a little curacao and a good helping of honey, all with some fairly noticeable alcohol warmth and a good fruity finish. Aftertaste shows some of the barnyardie funk with the yeast coming through more and the body amplified a bit from the alcohol and complexity of the flavours. Overall, a nice beer for the style and a good beer with a complex profile and an even nicer body. I sampled this 65 cL bottle purchased from Arrowine in Arlington, Virginia on 24-November-2012 for US$8.99 sampled at home in Washington on 11-March-2013.

Got a bottle of this at the $5.99 price point which is the only reason I bought it, the $9 Lips of Faith beers are almost never worth it (sours excluded of course). Bright orange in the glass, mild head. Aroma is quite entertaining, I wasn’t in love with it but there is something interesting about it, the yeast maybe. Its not quite what I would expect from brett so I don’t if that is the yeast they used but it is certainly unique and hard to describe. Flavor had a bit of orange and then that crazy yeast again. I will say I wish it was lower ABV (like 7%) but oh well. Serving type: bottle 12-15-2012 16:19:42

Light golden with little to no head. Aroma is very light, vaguely flowery. Flavor is a light touch of hops with some light sweetness, notes of honey. Finishes a little bitter. Mouthfeel is a little similar to white wine with a bitter end.

kdm1984 (663) - Missouri, USA - MAR 7, 2013
Fruity Pebbles aroma with some funk. Somewhat tart, citrusy, and yeasty. Acid from orange peel tempered by a very dry finish. Different - rather like this as a slow sipper in small doses.

bu11zeye (11942) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - MAR 6, 2013
(22oz bottle) Pours a lightly hazy golden body with a medium white head. Aroma of orange peel, yeast, grass, florals, and earth. Flavor of yeast, orange peel, butter, and pepper with an absurdly oily mouthfeel.

Pours orange in color with little to no head. Lots of citrus with small amounts of tartness. Alcohol is well hidden. At 9% abv I actually find it refreshing.

On tap at Uncle Mike’s. Amber with a medium creamy white head and a bunch of lace. Aroma of funk, hay, yeast, malt and a touch of fruit. Taste is floral and yeasty with caramel, alcohol and mild fruit.
