COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottle
Brewed at De Proefbrouwerij until 2005
Made in association with Philippe Olivier, a master cheesemaker, to accompany the cheeses made in the region.

C’est d’un savant dosage des orges maltées et du choix d’un houblon aromatique que cette bière tire son parfum original. L’équilibre de son nez fruité et son amertume délicate font que, tout naturellement, les fromages de terroirs typés des Pays du Nord et de l’Est de la France sont aujourd’hui sublimés avec la bière à Frometon.

MartinT (10036) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 1, 2005
The Lure:
A lofty, lingering head sits comfortably atop the curaçao spicy fruitiness. Soft yeast caresses the citrus fruit, all indicative of a twist on the Belgian wit theme.

The Festivities:
Ornate orange zest and citrusy wheat bulge from the incarnate carbonation. A soft and cuddly orientation for a dry and fruity temptation.

Transcendence:
Moss-covered stone walls form a beautiful portrait.

bottle from Calais Vins, tasted together with cheeses from the North of France, e.g. Sablé de Wissant. Hazy straw golden colour, mid-sized white head. Fruity aroma. Spicy hops with some good, sweet malts with a shy fruity touch - this really is a good companion for cheese. Very nice beer.

Dark yellow coloured and hazy. Has tiny particles. White head, mostly lasting. Aroma is heavy malty, light bread, moderate yeasty. Flavor starts heavy sweet and finish light bitter. Cremy texture and soft carbonation.

BMan1113VR (7929) - Los Angeles, California, USA - MAR 12, 2008
Enjoyed with a nice French goat cheese. Initially pours with a creamy head, some chill haze in the yellow body. Retention is good. Taste is slightly sweet with a bit of coriander, melons and grapes. I had know idea this was a witbier, it tastes like a much darker beer than it appears. Very rich with alcohol and yeast. A bit dry in the mouth. The beer is a nice complement to the cheese. Towards the end of the bottle the pour becomes much cloudier with the yeast. Sent in a picture.

larsga (7656) - Oslo, NORWAY - AUG 31, 2012
Medium offwhite head. Hazy amber body with carbonation. Wooden vanilla and cheese aroma with raspberry notes. Dryish spicy seedes of paradise, caramel and sugary malts taste with buttery grassy spicy notes. Mid-bodied. Mild, soft, buttery mouthfeel. Dryish spicy buttery vinous honey aftertaste with caramelly herbal notes. Nice, interesting, and unusual. (0.75l bottle, from Kihoskh, Copenhagen, last year.)

A Mes rate: bottle thanks to Tom.
Heavy yeast on the nose, some sugar and maybe a little pear. Murky yellow orange with a thin white film topping. Flavour is similar. Yeasty and spicy. Fairly dull but very drinkable. Alcohol is well hidden. Erm, yeah!

Rastacouere (6177) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 27, 2005
Cloudy gold, raising a nice 1cm foamy keeper proposing light and elegant lacing. Slightly tart, soft orange and zesty citrus nose, softly spicy yeastiness pairing along weirder grassy influenced vinegar eggs and ice cream reminding flavors. Natural wheatiness making it akin to cereals. Pepper and curacao oriented yeast hints while hops add a spiciness of their own, lemony. Grainy, desserty and with a cheesestick fit that sets it apart. Effervescent big bubbled light-medium body. Most interesting. One of those event-worthy never heard of, could be gimmicky, beers that can’t but give you absolutely 0 expectation, but come up as far above average and confirms you’re in the right business as a beer seeker.

Bottle thanks to the bosses had at home. Alround rating: Sweet pale candy sugered malt, yeasty fruity esters(clean), orange peel, lightly dusty, but well carbonated and drinkable stuff.
