COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The first in a three-part series of interpretations on the French Biere de Garde style, Le Batteur leads with a distinctive yeast aromatic character mixed with light bready notes. Noticeably dry, the finish is crisp with a mild, refreshing acidity. The French term for a drummer, Le Batteur takes its name from a component of a classic jazz trio.

Draft at Party Town from backlog notes. Pours a slightly hazy golden color with a small off white head. The aroma and flavor have doughy bread, lemon citrus, honey, a funk, soft flavor and finish, ok.

On draft at Roll Out the Barrel 2016. The pour is a cloudy golden yellow with a thin white head and a couple spots of lace. The aroma is nicely tart and sour with a bright light fruit to it. There is a tart Brett funkiness, but it’s well balanced. I like it. The flavor is a little more relaxed. It’s nice and fruity. There is a light tartness and a good balance here. There is a light barnyard funk and a decent farmhouse quality to it. The mouth feel is light and crisp with a brighter carbonation and a lingeringly sweet and tart finish. It’s interesting.

10 oz sample at Kickback in Jax...Aroma has hints of lacto and Brett. Light sweet caramel, too. Moderately hazy honey orange color with a medium tan head. Starts with a tart, lacto based flavor. Has a little smoke and milk flavor in the middle. Finishes with cereal grains. Lots of malt, balanced by some tart. Unique and good.

Very nice for a slightly sour beer but not much like Biere de Garde. Maroon pour with decent head and lacing. Light tangy finish. Nice stuff. Tap at Snally.

3.7
Suttree (6392) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - SEP 1, 2016
On tap at Suttree’s. Very murky orange, with a thin ring of foam. Smells really juicy and tart, with citrus, wine and funk. It’s pretty tart, actually, with a lot of citrus, plus a good deal of white wine. Lots of orange juice, as well.
