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.

mcberko (12863) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 13, 2013
22 oz. bottle, pours a clear golden with a small white head. Aroma of bready malts, sort of stale-like, with some barnyard and yeasty noes. Flavour brings out some earthy qualities, white wine notes, some toasted bread and some aged farmhouse yeast, with a bit of the orange peel further back. No hint of the 9% - drinks dangerously smooth, like a 5% beer. Body is light, though quite full-flavoured. Great stuff.
