COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This Biere de Garde is a traditional, artisanal farmhouse ale from Northern France brewed and kept for consumption in warm weather.

Delicately hopped with Czech Saaz for a nice spicy and peppery flavor and aroma, enjoying this ale doesn’t require a doctorate, just a vocabulary.

Hazy dull brownish-amber. Thin head. Has a sticky, almost caramelly, but then getting bitter in the finish. Does not come together for me.

Draft - Sweet pumpkin like notes. Cloudy copper with a small white head. Caramel, pumpkin like notes and a light finish.

On tap at Farmhouse Fest, pours a cloudy dark amber orange with a small beige head. Aroma brings out light pumpkin, some subtle barrel and farmhouse character. Flavour reveals a weird mix of notes, including pumpkin, light oak, and a touch of wood. Finishes with pumpkin and oak.

Tmoney99 (14457) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - APR 25, 2017
Draft. Poured clear dark copper color with an average frothy off-white head that was fully lasting with excellent lacing. Moderate to heavy toasted sweet malt and yeast aroma. Medium to full body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Moderate to heavy toasted sweet flavor with a medium to heavy sweet finish of moderate to long duration. Good drinkable beer.

bubblehouse (1527) - louisville, Kentucky, USA - APR 19, 2017
Not bad. Pours a hazy brown. Looks a tab bit murky but would drink again in a pinch.

alexsdad06 (10387) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAR 31, 2017
Draft at Dutch’s. Pours a hazy dark golden color with a small off white head. The aroma and flavor have ample spice character, pale malts, hints of caramel, bubblegum, wood, wine barrel, citrus, lots of stuff going on but it doesn’t always work together.

3.4
slowrunner77 (12037) - Reno, Nevada, USA - JAN 19, 2017
Copper colored. Malty aroma is a touch rustic - hay and grass, light noble hops. Cool and drinkable, if not terribly exciting.

3.5
drfabulous (7938) - Lexington, Kentucky, USA - MAY 15, 2014
Draught at Arcadium. Dark and malty for the so called style. Too much caramel. Low carb. tasted more like an amber.

A wonderful French style release from the heart of Kentucky shines on a warm afternoon. The name alone should be a reason to try this. However even if it was called ’Slop Water’ it would be a fine beer for drinking as the season changes from winter to summer and the ice melts.

Aroma / Appearance - A ruby red base with opaque edges has a warm chestnut tint. A nice curl of ivory head is paired with wafting aromas of honey, molasses, malt, and only a mild booziness.

Flavor / Palate - Candy bar chocolate, malt, and dry flavors float over the tongue. This isn’t overly farmhouse but it does have a trace of Kentucky horse farm mud and trampled hay lurking in the wings. A floral polish caps off a well executed beer that might be the best on draft at the moment.
