Thanks to jmgrub for sharing this one at GRG1313's tasting.

Pours a murky light red with a foamy off-white head that settles to wisps of film on top of the beer. Small dots of lace slowly drip into the remaining beer on the drink down. Tiny chunks of sediment are seen floating around in the beer after the pour. Smell is slightly sour with malt, strawberry, and funk aromas. Taste is much the same with sour malt, strawberry, and adhesive bandage flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of acidity on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp and medium bodied mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer but the adhesive bandage quality I am getting in the taste is odd.

Beautiful pink color with a really nice fluffy head and cloudy appearance. The smell is all fresh strawberry. The taste is almost like a slightly bitter strawberry. A super fresh strawberry along with the leaves and the seeds. The big surprise is the fresh oak woodiness on the finish. The mouthfeel was just fantastic. I'd never had an imperial berliner, but this absolutely adds a lot to the style. Absolutely delicious with a fresh tartness that reminds me of the fresh fruit and not artificial acidity.

Many thanks to Bobby for sharing this.

Pours a vibrant pink with a nice white head. Looks great.

Smell is interesting. Almost fake strawberry aromas with some funk and a bit of plastic.

Taste is a touch better than the nose. Real strawberry flavors are present, there's a touch of tartness, but then weird plastic flavors come in ruin the finish.

Mouthfeel is decent.

Overall, I was psyched to finally try something from De Garde, and this was a big let down.
