750ml bottle. Poured into a Toppling Goliath snifter 9/28/2014.

A- Dark purple-reddish body. If it were lighter in body, I'd say it was quite hazy, almost pulpy. Not much head to go around, and what does show up is has a dark pinkish hue that disappears quite quickly. No lacing. [4]

S- Quite odd, hard to describe but I'll try my best. There is a odd funk, like rotting fruit, which could very well be the blueberries; complemented by the grainy wheat sweetness that has a bit of sharpness to it, some oak and a good bit of yogurt. I'm not sure what to make of the fruit contribution here, but it doesn't appeal to my senses as much as I expected it to. [3.5]

F- A bit more of blueberry flavour shows up here, mostly a lot of tart yogurty lactate and a bit of oak. And not a lot else. Flavour profile lacks depth- it essentially transitions into a watery, tasteless profile on the back-end which was quite a surprise. [3.25]

M- On the thinner side, not a ton of substance. Carbonation is light. It does have a nice dry oak finish that plays well with the initial yogurt lactate. [3.5]

O- For my first taste of De Garde, this was pretty disappointing. But I already knew this is considered one of the lesser rated ones. Got to start somewhere, right? [3.5]

Shared with JLindros and Threelions.

A - Poured into a Kate the Great tulip a beautiful light violet hue, with next to no head that leaves faint wisps. 4.5

S - Aromas of blueberries in a pint, light sweetness, good Berliner notes, no wheat, light skins, not sour more so sweet. 4.25

T - Taste is lightly sour, great blueberry skin, not really sour, sweet blueberry, floral, delicious blueberry flesh. More like a blueberry wild or sour than a Berliner. Interesting that how little it tastes like a Berliner. Light buttery oak. 4.25

M - Mouthfeel is a little light on the carbonation. 4

O - Overall this beer was super blueberry colour with lovely notes of blueberry. Not quite a Berliner but yeah, quite tasty. 4.25

Pour is dark maroon with a lot of pink head. Nose has a moderate blueberry, yeast presence, faint plastic, dusty notes and a touch of lactic. Taste is fairly assertive blueberry, a hint of plastic, vanilla lacto, notes of yeast, strong sourness and a bit of acetic acid. Typical de garde body, lighter with a strong carb and a bit prickly and puckering in the back.
