4/5 rDev -9.9%
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.

Bottle generously shared by jmgrub. Thanks.

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.
