COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Dernière volonté (French for "Last Will") is a mix of Belgian and English brewing traditions. Complex flavours of hop flowers and spicy, fruity esters from our belgian yeast are perfectly balanced with the robust flavours and aromas of malt. The finish is commandeered by an assertive aroma from dry-hopping.

355mL Bottle (2016-09-16): Poured hazy orange, very faint white head, small bits of sediment. Aroma of wheat, bread, floral hop, pepper spice, orange peel, hint of bubblegum and an interesting funkiness from the blend of hops/yeast that I just can’t put my finger on. Light sweetness, light bitterness (I didn’t get much of the bitter hop taste), medium body, tingly carbonation, oily dry finish. Overall: definitely interesting, good taste and finish. The scent was initially not for me but I warmed up to it.

On tap at DDC St-Jerome. Lets be honest. This beer used to be among the best and an incredible one. Few years ago, DDC had issues with the procurement of the yeast and it had never been the same when they reintroduced it with apparently a new recipe to accommodate a different yeast. I even had the impression they may have changed the recipe more than once in trying to achieve something satisfying. The beer is still good, but no longer the exceptional one it used to be few years ago!

bottle @ Keg Liquors / Clarksville IN --- Aroma of malt and bitter floral. Cloudy medium / dark amber, off-white head that sinks quickly to a cover, mottled curtain of lace. Taste is Semi-sweet caramel malt that adds solid carbonation on the swallow before revealing yeast and mild floral hops that drift through a long finish. Big and bold, but still light in the belly. Solid brew.

Bottle shared at the Weekend in the woods 2015 with daje, Simonsen and some other guys
Orange hazy, big frothy head. Smell of yeast esters, spices, smelly feet and "gymbag", light malts, some funky brett. Light to moderate sweet, fruity, some funk and complexity, quite dry. Medium bitter, herbal tail. Quite nice!

Shared 11.5 oz. bottle. Pours a cloudy gold with a large foamy white head. Aroma is malty with floral elements. Taste is fruit, spice, malt, caramel, yeast, herbs and alcohol. Definitely unique. Not bad.

darbeer75 (829) - Round Rock, Texas, USA - MAY 7, 2016
Aroma: malty and floral at the same time; Appearance: straw, hazy with very full head that dissipates slowly; particulate suspended Taste: unusual; definitely spicy and hoppy and fruity; pretty refreshing; more like a saison than a beligan ale; Palate: medium body with long, slightly odd tasting finish; Overall: very interesting and unusual belgian. Not quite my thing but I can appreciate it.

BOD 3/15. Medium amber murky pour with suspended particulate matter from bottle conditioning. World class head volume, lacing and retention. Rich world class nose of fruity esters coupled with a light tart airiness. Peach, plum, pineapple, grape and orange coupled with a touch of pepper over a light Belgian base. Light medium body with a smooth texture. World class carbonation with a nice effervescent middle and a finely bubbled prickly finish perfectly paired with the body. The flavor profile is almost world class, but falls just a bit short due to a very light metallic note which arrives and lingers in the finish. Otherwise, this one is a very tasty Belgian ale with a world class fruity ester profile. Flavors from the nose all appear with some separation. The sweeter flavors appear after the middle corresponding with maximum balanced sweetness. The middle provides a very light rind bitterness. The finish is a slow fade of fruit and the light metallic note.
