Famous in Michigan for farmhouse ales, our friends at Brewery Viviant introduced us to their biere de garde ale yeast strain. From there, we imagined a slightly tart, intentionally dry beer with hints of bergamot citrus that pairs perfectly with French cheeses.

DuffMan (9755) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - JUN 16, 2013
Bottle, shared with my in-laws. Hazy orange-tinted gold. Very doughy yeasty aroma, some brothy character like cooked noodles, lightly cheesy. Doughy, yeasty body of flavours, brightened by some orange and spice. Intriguing to me, but not a favourite.

DenverBrew (4) - - JUN 12, 2013 does not count
Orange peel nose with tart hits and some alcohol notes and typical yeast farmhouse scent. Clean in the mouth with slight orange notes and dry finish. Alcohol warmth follows. Very slight caramel notes in nose and taste as it warms. Great linger of dry and crisp. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

I like it real good. There’s a hint of spice to it that one doesn’t quite grasp... I guess it’s from the bergamot. Medium bodied, this beer is refreshing but packs an alcoholic punch.

JStax (5761) - Devola/Marietta, Ohio, USA - MAY 19, 2013
22 ounce bottle into a brandy snifter. Pours a bright hazy orange with a thin white head of foam. The aroma is lightly herbal with a big orange peel character. The orange peel reminds me of dreamsicle. In the taste, the orange comes through like juicy rind. Pretty nice.

daafisch (46) - New York, USA - MAY 19, 2013
Pours a nice golden color with a thick white head. Head dissipates rather quickly. Slight orange scent on the nose. Not too much going on taste wise. There is a hint of orange but other than that its a basic saison flavor. Its an enjoyable beer, just nothing spectacular.

AWISLguy (2715) - Wisconsin, USA - MAY 18, 2013
Bomber from Downer Wine & Spirits. Pours a very clear yellowish-orange witha foamy white head. Aroma has sweet fruits, orange peel and farmhouse yeast. Quite floral. Taste is of sweet light fruits and tangy herbs. Very light and slightly sweet. And dry. Almost no detected alcohol presence. Would be curious to have others of the style.

reggiedunlop (3688) - The dub c, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 13, 2013
Pours a clear very pale yellow with a medium white head. Aroma has dusty old fruit. Flavor has light fruit and spice but tastes old and dusty. Mouthfeel is light and the finish needs to go away.
