COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Gachupines (1252) - USA - MAR 7, 2013
Light golden with little to no head. Aroma is very light, vaguely flowery. Flavor is a light touch of hops with some light sweetness, notes of honey. Finishes a little bitter. Mouthfeel is a little similar to white wine with a bitter end.

3.5
kdm1984 (814) - Missouri, USA - MAR 7, 2013
Fruity Pebbles aroma with some funk. Somewhat tart, citrusy, and yeasty. Acid from orange peel tempered by a very dry finish. Different - rather like this as a slow sipper in small doses.

bu11zeye (13029) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - MAR 6, 2013
(22oz bottle) Pours a lightly hazy golden body with a medium white head. Aroma of orange peel, yeast, grass, florals, and earth. Flavor of yeast, orange peel, butter, and pepper with an absurdly oily mouthfeel.

realaledrinker (35) - Grosse Pointe Woods, Michigan, USA - MAR 6, 2013
Pours orange in color with little to no head. Lots of citrus with small amounts of tartness. Alcohol is well hidden. At 9% abv I actually find it refreshing.

TheBeerGod (6223) - Newport News, Virginia, USA - FEB 22, 2013
Bottle. Golden pour with a short, foamy white head. Aroma is sweet and slightly funky with hints of candied citrus (orange creamsicle and lemon candies), yeast notes and straw. Taste is tart fruit, citrus notes, funky yeast, light earthiness, floral notes, and straw. Body is medium with a soft, prickly carbonation. Very soft warmth from the alcohol. Ends with more citrus, candied citrus notes, floral notes, straw, and funky yeast.

3.2
fidelis83 (2438) - Clinton, Iowa, USA - FEB 19, 2013
Pours clear gold with a 2 finger, frothy white head that has great retention and leaves some lacing. Aroma of citrus blooms and flesh, toast, fruity and bready yeast, light acididty, floral hops and limestone. Flavor is orange flesh and peel, cereal toast, spicy phenols, light caramel and light citrus, possibly yeast related tartness. Medium, oily body with a light carbonation. Not, bad, but a little plain, boozy, and oily.
