Received in a trade.

A - Poured into a Kate the Great tulip a nice lightly hazy golden hue with a thin head.

S - Aromas of light botanicals, juniper, faint tripel notes.

T - Taste is lovely tripel notes, good gin notes, solid botanicals, really really drinkable with next to no alcohol present.

M - Mouthfeel is incredibly drinkable, the alcohol is hidden nicely. Awesome.

O - Overall this beer was really nice, super drinkable.

750 ml bottle into a Mekong snifter

not a gusher like a lot of other de gardes. pours a murky golden color with a nice carbonated head. smell is absolutely on point. smell of a sour oak barrel ... lemon .taste is absolutely incredible for 15.5% lemon...very very funky, damn tasty. this is so great. mild body...medium carbonation.

overall the most insane 15.5% beer I've had. just a kick ass brewery.

Appearance is gold with a frothy off-white head, creamy, solid lace.

Smell is intense, there's lots of sugars, earth, herbal, some coco (weird!), and herbal.

Taste is intense but notably smooth. 15.5% seems daunting! But the taste is not. Like the herbal notes, I assume the honey helps it ferment strong and smooth, more of a braggot I assume. Very well done.

Mouthfeel is slippery, eerily soft, light; Saharan dryness.

Drinkability is impressively strong. Honestly, the best, most drinkable of the strong beers I've had; by a wide margin; wine like.

Another thanks to rudzud for sharing.

Very small fizzy head, semi clear honey orange color.

Nose juniper, fruity orange peel and marmalade, sweet candy like, little piney

Taste sweet gale and juniper pine like, semi sweet candy and plenty of effervescent saison like notes, hint spices, floral, etc.

Mouth is med bod, booze is hidden well, nice carb.
