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.

Ceebs25 (503) - Naperville, Illinois, USA - SEP 17, 2011
On tap at the Eccentric Cafe. Another one of Bells’ more average fair, with a good malty backing and some spicy grains. Pour was deep amber-mahoganny in color, with minimal head, and medium translucent body. The aroma was hazy, with some rich malts, caramel, bready cookie, and herbal spice. The flavor played off the aroma well, with some sweet dark fruits, caramel, cookie, and herbal hops. Overall, not terribly impressive, but still decently interesting.
