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.

This draft brew from a restaurant poured a small sized head of foamy finely sized white colored bubbles that were quickly diminishing and left behind a no visible carbonation opaque dark yellow colored body. The aroma was citrus and malty. The mouth feel was very tingly at the start and at the finish. The flavor contained notes of citrus banana and malt. Delicious and one I would certainly buy again.

The aroma is bready malt and yeast. The flavor is bread malt, yeasty and very dry. The mouthfeel is smooth and this beer is medium bodied. This beer is very quaffable, has an enjoyable flavor and is worth trying.

CanIHave4Beers (4181) - Pouring Bus, Iowa, USA - AUG 17, 2016
On Draught,
Pours a pale yellow, very hazy with a nice head & good lacing on the glass.

The aroma is subtle but very nice, citric and lightly funky with a nice bready character. Light sweet smelling, chill.

The flavor is tart and has some light lemon zest, itís got a bready malt thing and a big yeastiness. Very dry, pleasantly sour, coolio.

tmoreau (4151) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - MAR 19, 2014
On tap at Lunar Brewing Co. and dispensed to a tulip displaying a clear & bright, golden color, with a nice layer of soft white froth to the head, and clingy waves & spots of lacing. The nose started with more of a light mustiness than funk, a touch of dough, light spice, and lemon & apple notes. Light bodied, and well carbonated, the taste was similar, with moderate, earthy bitterness that expressed some dryness, and a clean, crisp finish. Tasty and quite pleasant on the palate.

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.
