A clear orange with a dense, choppy, off white head that falls off to a disk, this looks nice. On the nose, the hops are most noticeable and dominant, with a lemony, earthy, mildly fruity note. This complements the lemony and mildly lactic sourness that are present. A mildly minty note is present as well. Highly unorthodox, but it works. The funk here is cleaner than other de Garde beers I've had, lacking in the Tillamook terroir. A touch of gin is present as well.
The palate opens bright, crisp, clean and sour with a pronounced lemony twang, a lactic yogurt flavor, and a ton of fruits - lemons, mild melon, mint, earth - this is great! The mid palate has flavors of juniper, vanilla, a touch of oak and honey. The way this beer is put together, with the array of flavors present and the way they're layered, makes me think Cantillon's Iris inspired this beer. Drying on the finish with an earthy, minty, hoppy bite to go with the clean lactic and lemony sourness, this is excellent stuff.
