4.65/5  rDev +4.7%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.75

750 ml bottle into a snifter.

massive gusher but I accounted for it. hazy red pour . smell is big on the oak and pinot noir. it also has that funky musky aroma. taste is ....wow. big sour taste at first. lots of pinot flavor. oak isn't super prevalent in the flavor. Damn good. world class beer my friends. medium body and carbonation.

overall lovely and very recommended.

Bottle generously shared by jmgrub. Thanks.

A: Pours after an initial small gush a hazy blush reddish with white bubbles around the rim leaving a few spots of lace.

N: Jammy fruit, oak, juniper, cranberry tartness.

T: Tart fruit with some faint cheese funk, oaky and vinous.

M: Moderate body and medium carbonation. Tart, fruity and dry finish.

O: Impressive. Nice aroma and fruity tartness.

4/5  rDev -9.9%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

650 mL bottle poured into a snifter.

Appearance - Hazy pinkish red amber. Golden color in direct light. A variety of colors. The bottle gushes but the head doesn't last on the surface.

Smell - I can't pinpoint that de Garde sour aroma and flavor, but this one has it. Fruity grape aroma.

Taste - Gritty cracker malt. Grapes. Intense de Garde sour flavor. I still can't figure it out. Oak. Some dark fruit flavors.

Mouthfeel - Strong sourness. Medium carbonation.

Overall - I can't parse the flavors in these de Garde beers, but for the first time, I think the sour flavor they produce works.
