This French farmhouse-style ale has tart fruitiness from the yeast and a sweet maltiness from the grains. A modern re-creation of a classic European beer style to celebrate St. Louis’s French heritage. Pairs well with fruits, cheeses, and cured meats. Debuted at the 2007 HOP in the City Festival Beer, unfiltered. Bottles will be filtered and then bottle-conditioned.

JStax (2601) - Devola/Marietta, Ohio, USA - FEB 18, 2014
750 ml bottle poured into a teku. Pours a clear copper with a white head of foam. The aroma is really pretty malty and earthy. Not much in the way of a hop profile. The taste is woody and sweet. Medium body and medium carbonation.

hotstuff (3941) - Indiana, USA - JAN 29, 2014
Rated on 12-02-2009 (Bottle) This beer pours a large frothy off-white head with a short retention, transparent gold body, slow rising carbonation, and one ring of lacing. The Aroma is malty, slightly yeasty, sweet, tart, and fruity. The Taste is sweet, sour, tart, malty, fruity, and has a short dry finish. The Palate is tingly and this is a medium bodied beer. Overall, this beer is quaffable, worth trying and a beer I would consider drinking again.

Bottle sample at a tasting at Mastikim. Thanks beerandbeyond. Deep orange-amber color. Aroma of malt, caramel, some fruitiness, cookie notes and light yeasty notes. Sweetish flavor, malty, fruity, a bit caramelly, with light sourness, yeast and some spiciness, especially in the finish. Medium-bodied. So-so.

AlainG (1035) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 23, 2013
Elle est belle, orangée, limpide, une mousse la recouvre et prends son temps pour se résorber. Elle devient trouble au second versage. Du malt, du sucre d’orge, des fruits; de la poire et de la pêche font office d’odeurs. Un goût de levure, de poivre, avec un côté sucré et ce n’est pas mémorable. La minceur est inattendue. ce qui reste en bouche, c’est le côté poivré, amalgamé au sucre. Je ne sais pas trop quoi en penser? Elle n’est pas remarquable, elle semble même artificielle.
