3.83/5 rDev -10.3%
750 mL bottle poured into a snifter.
Appearance - Hazy dull orange. Small white head. Uneven collar.
Smell - Very woody. Bright yeast and esters. A bit of wine.
Taste - Very woody again. Bright citrus. A little lemon. More distinctly red wine flavored here. Yeasty in the back end.
Mouthfeel - Medium light body. High carbonation.
Overall - Good stuff and a nice barrel character. Again, I think it's good, but I don't get the insane de Garde hype.

4.45/5 rDev +4.2%
A: Golden orange with some small bubbles on top
S: Funk and yeast, kind of dominated by a yeasty smell
T: Well the nose tells absolutely nothing about what this beer tastes like, it tastes amazing. A lot of the same funky, wheat, barnyard, aged cheese tastes I got from the desay blends but integrated so much better and taken to a higher level altogether. The pinot barrel gives it a a nice well rounded vinous quality and a touch of oak. Couldn't get over how good this tastes.
M: Medium body, wouldn't want anything else
O: Really impressed with this one. I had high hopes for a collab between two of the best breweries on earth right now and it more than lived up.
