COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This French-style country ale is deep amber in color. With a toasty, sweet caramel start, it finishes with just enough hops to clean off the palate. Bon Appetit!

Draft at the Sybarite Pig in Boca Raton. Nice pour into a snifter. Reddish amber in color, the beer had a solid head and lacing. The aroma was mostly malt, caramel and light fruits. Not a very strong overall aroma though. The taste was actually more defined with a malty, almost sweet presence. You get a little of the fruit (either peaches, cantelope, etc,) Mildly hopped but well balanced. Medium light body, medium carbonation. Crisp finish. Not bad for the style.

On tap at The Brass Tap poured a cloudy golden amber with a small lasting creamy amber head. Aromas of caramel, earthiness, sour apple and light yeast. Palate was light to medium bodied and smooth. Flavors of caramel, earthiness and light sour apple with a smooth lingering earthy finish.

12 oz bottle.
Clear copper, thin tan head, no lace.
Aroma is caramel and toast, some thin grassy hops. Flavor is similar to aroma, toast, sweet caramel, dose of zippy hops on the finish. Refreshing, and very drinkable.

KyotoLefty (7430) - Kyoto, JAPAN - MAY 9, 2015
Glowing red with lace. Nose of raisins, honey, maple, citrus, rich malts. A bit thick and heavy. Don’t get much of the biere de garde character.

Ontape (465) - Valley Village, California, USA - APR 22, 2015
Draft in Chicago. Nice BdG aromas but like so many starts a bit sweet for me. Some nice bitterness cleans it up a bit. I drank this in about five minutes after a long day of travel so hard to say too much. I enjoyed it though.

Aroma of sulfur and malty funk. Flavor is strongly sulfur but with a carbonic bite and a malt wall. Finish is dry.
