The second release in our Legendary Series, La Dame du Lac is our interpretation of a traditional biere de garde, or "kept beer." Malty sweetness, rustic farmhouse notes and a dry finish make this a fitting beer to enjoy now, or let age for further complexity. Commonly seen throughout northern France were the ghostly "dame blanche," or "white ladies," roaming the country side. This beer is a tribute to our very own "dame blanche," and one of the most well-known spooky urban legends around east Dallas – the "Lady of White Rock Lake." In her honor we toast this ghost, and hope she one day finds her way back home. But hurry, because like her many sightings, this beer is also known to suddenly disappear. As a way ot honor our dual heritage, we created The Legendary Series--specially brewed biers inspired by Belgian and local mythologies. Schol!

Bottle. Pours a clear orange with thick white head that lasts. The aroma is grain, floral, honey. Medium mouth feel, bready malt, caramel, spice finish, decent.

TXBadger (2811) - Dallas, Texas, USA - APR 25, 2014
Pours a faint orange color, slight amberish. Caramel and malt on the nose, with sweetness. This is sweet on the palate, not getting much malt or bready notes, mainly just sweetness.

ilovedarkbeer (2744) - Arlington, Virginia, USA - DEC 2, 2013
Pours an orange color. Earthy caramel in the foreground with some fruit and citrus in on the finish. Odd mouthfeel.

5000 (6862) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - NOV 6, 2013
Bottle:   Dirty orangish straw, thin to moderate frothy off-white head, spotty lacing.   Sweet bready mealiness on the nose, a slight melon like sweetness.   Not all that musty or barnish that seems to be a shallow part of the style.   Plus at 7.5% its higher than most.   Sweet and bready on the tongue, almost too sweet.   Some mealy and cereal like presense on the backside.   A touch of dark pitted fruit shows up midway through but vanishes.   Feels almost like a really pale American version of a Belgian Dubbel.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate to full.   Feels pretty thick.   Finishes sweet, bready, mealy, with some cereal notes.   At times faint dark pitted fruit.   Pale version of an American made Belgian Dubbel, yep... Thanks Bill!

Bottle pours copper with a thin cream-colored head. Nice blend of subtle aromas and flavors -- yeast, fruit, malt, grass, toffee, a bit of funk. Perhaps a tad too sweet.

nimbleprop (8589) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - OCT 17, 2013
Sampled at GABF. Pours a hazy orange with some eggshell head. Nose of orange, sweet, perfume, herbs. Tastes like orange concentrate, not much else. Clean finish. Weird.

deyholla (11902) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - SEP 28, 2013
Bottle thanks to Sarah! Pours a clear amber red with a white head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has notes of tofee, caramel, light plastic, flora and sweet grains. Flavor has toffee and sweet bread with some underlying sweet fruits.

JStax (6997) - Devola/Marietta, Ohio, USA - SEP 15, 2013
22 ounce bottle thanks to Errl. Pours a semi-hazy copper with a white head of foam. Not much retention. In the aroma I get banana and a touch of spice. Earthy sweetness dominates the taste with a bit of heat coming across on the back of the tongue. Musty. Pretty interesting. Lively carbonation.

brokensail (16609) - Dublin, California, USA - JUL 28, 2013
Bottle shared by Bobby. Orange pour with a white head. Cloyingly sweet pear, apple, and grape. Metal, some caramel, grass, and solvent. The flavor is no good either. Solvent, metal, and cloying sugar and fruit. Apples, pear, grape, caramel, and some grass.

JohnnyJ (5570) - San Diego, California, USA - JUL 26, 2013
Bottle thanks to t0rin0. Dark amber Fizzy pour. Apple sauce, putrid grain, rotten fruit, and sweet chemical soup. This is bad.
