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!

Pours a cloudy golden orange color with a finger of white head. Very heavy on the banana aromas with a nice spiciness of clove and white pepper. Some candied citrus peel, sweet orange, and a bit of yeast are also present. The flavor is quite sweet for a biere de garde. Lots of bread, biscuit, and caramel. Some apple peels, orange, pear, and candied citrus peel fruitiness. The spices are there as well, mostly clove with a bit of white pepper.
