COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottle
Brewed at De Proefbrouwerij until 2005
Made in association with Philippe Olivier, a master cheesemaker, to accompany the cheeses made in the region.

C’est d’un savant dosage des orges maltées et du choix d’un houblon aromatique que cette bière tire son parfum original. L’équilibre de son nez fruité et son amertume délicate font que, tout naturellement, les fromages de terroirs typés des Pays du Nord et de l’Est de la France sont aujourd’hui sublimés avec la bière à Frometon.

A Mes rate: bottle thanks to Tom.
Heavy yeast on the nose, some sugar and maybe a little pear. Murky yellow orange with a thin white film topping. Flavour is similar. Yeasty and spicy. Fairly dull but very drinkable. Alcohol is well hidden. Erm, yeah!

fiulijn (14380) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 7, 2008
Corked bottle
Hazy blond color, with a thich foam and a persistent perlage. It has a light but original aroma, perfumy, of dry grass (not as strong as hay), old times soap, sweet cereals. It has a good mouthfeel, good body structure, with sweetish lean malt flavor, and a light fruity freeshness and a minimal yeast character. So far, so good, but if only it had more bitterness and some aromatic hop too, it would be very good. One interesting French beer.

BMan1113VR (7854) - Los Angeles, California, USA - MAR 12, 2008
Enjoyed with a nice French goat cheese. Initially pours with a creamy head, some chill haze in the yellow body. Retention is good. Taste is slightly sweet with a bit of coriander, melons and grapes. I had know idea this was a witbier, it tastes like a much darker beer than it appears. Very rich with alcohol and yeast. A bit dry in the mouth. The beer is a nice complement to the cheese. Towards the end of the bottle the pour becomes much cloudier with the yeast. Sent in a picture.

beermouth (435) - Langeskov, DENMARK - OCT 16, 2007
Muddy yellow/orange and hay-like colour with good solid white head. Good freshness with orange, lemon and hint’s of malt and hay. Slight sweet taste but it goes perfect with the " red cheese" from the region!

MartinT (7779) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 1, 2005
The Lure:
A lofty, lingering head sits comfortably atop the curaçao spicy fruitiness. Soft yeast caresses the citrus fruit, all indicative of a twist on the Belgian wit theme.

The Festivities:
Ornate orange zest and citrusy wheat bulge from the incarnate carbonation. A soft and cuddly orientation for a dry and fruity temptation.

Transcendence:
Moss-covered stone walls form a beautiful portrait.

beerbuzzmontreal (3490) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 1, 2005
Pours a hazy orange body with tiny floaties and a thin bubbly white head. Aroma of oranges, yeast and spices. Flavor of oranges, yeast and spices. The body is light to medium and the carbonation is lively.

CapFlu (4500) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 28, 2005
(750ml bottle) Sampled at Goldorak’s Sunday MTL Gathering. Good god - what am I drinking - Cheese??? Pours a white, lasting head with a cloudy, sediment-filles head and a orange-gold body. Nose is elusive - somewhat hemp, perfume and yeasty. Peppery flavour, grassy and tart. Lemon, yeasty finish. Very good.
