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.

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.

Bottle. Pours a clear gold with medium frothy white head that lasts. The aroma is strong floral and honey. Thin mouth with sweet fruit, honey, yeast, light tartness, very good. Sudsmcduff is awesome!

Bottle pours a slightly hazy golden orange with thin off-white head that leaves moderate lace. Aroma of didst and sweet malt, taste files wroth hints of fruity booze. Meh, nothing too exciting but not bad.

Poured pail yellow. Aroma of lemony citrus. Taste was crisp and fresh (after being aged for 2 years). Very enjoyable. Couldn’t tell its high alcohol content.

"I’d had a small sample on tap a few weeks back and enjoyed it. Enjoyed the bomber to myself even more. Love the use of orange peel in this zesty, unique brew. 9% doesn’t show, at all. Belgian spices, chamomile and fruit. Solid all around."

@ Whitey’s Wine and Liquor / Lawrenceburg IN --- Slightly hazy medium amber, white head that drops to a full contoured cover, bands and streaks of lace. Taste opens with malt that doesn’t grow til it moves to the back of the tongue, where it adds sweet citrus and yeast before adding a light hoppiness to bring things back into line. A solid brew that is so easy to drink, one must be aware of the alcohol, which never shows it’s face. Recommended.

No retention and light lacing. Smells of orange peel, yeast and apricots. Tastes of apricots, peaches and dry citrus. Dry, fruity finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Golden-amber, spicy a bit sweet and a dash of bubblegum but the alcohol is fairly strong.
