COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
World of Beer and Bavik have partnered to create a collaborative release exclusive to World of Beer -- C’est La Vie! The beer is based off of the Petrus Tripel, and then dry hopped with Sapphir hops. Made with 100% Belgian grown hops, C’est La Vie! has a unique hop character not normally seen with Belgian beer. This beer was made to be approachable by the most novice of beer consumers, as well as provide a unique and complex experience for the most experienced beer consumer. C’est La Vie! is dry hopped with Belgian grown Sapphir hops. It has a bright golden color, a floral hop aroma, and since it is dry hopped with Sapphir hops, it has a pronounced floral character with some citrusy notes. The alcohol content is approximately 7.4% ABV.

Tap. Straw gold. Great Belgian lace. No discernible nose even when warm. Hops trump any Belgian yeast or candi sugar. More like a Belgian pale?
