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.

Quack-Duck (7911) - Down South, GERMANY - FEB 25, 2012
bottle from Calais Vins, tasted together with cheeses from the North of France, e.g. Sablé de Wissant. Hazy straw golden colour, mid-sized white head. Fruity aroma. Spicy hops with some good, sweet malts with a shy fruity touch - this really is a good companion for cheese. Very nice beer.

JoeinDahlem (1326) - Berlin, Berlin, GERMANY - AUG 25, 2012
Couldn’t resist a bottle meant for cheese pairing, bought at the Traditions en Nord shop in Cassel. Pleasant, sweetish, fruity nose with bits of appleskin and core. Quite malty, honey and light caramel, without being overly sweet. Fair bitterness and touch of alcohol heat. A bit of coriander, I think. With the cheese: sweetness works well with a salty selection. Big enough beer for it, too. Bubble action helps with the creamier ones too.

JorgeLee (1188) - Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 30, 2013
Bottle from La Fromagerie in Marylebone, eaten with cheese toasties! Don’t know why but expectations were low. Bright golden colour, thin white foam. Initially malty, toasted, a little boozy, firm, sweet. Some pleasant yeasty character. Light hopping. Very pleasant, a reasonably complex example of the style.

Belle réalisation que cette bière à Frometon. Une blonde plutôt classique mais qui se marie vraiment très bien avec le fromage.

larsga (6206) - Oslo, NORWAY - AUG 31, 2012
Medium offwhite head. Hazy amber body with carbonation. Wooden vanilla and cheese aroma with raspberry notes. Dryish spicy seedes of paradise, caramel and sugary malts taste with buttery grassy spicy notes. Mid-bodied. Mild, soft, buttery mouthfeel. Dryish spicy buttery vinous honey aftertaste with caramelly herbal notes. Nice, interesting, and unusual. (0.75l bottle, from Kihoskh, Copenhagen, last year.)
