3.83/5  rDev -10.5%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

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%
look: 4.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

750ml bottle

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.
