Bottle decanted into a De Garde hourglass tumbler. Cloudy papaya color, with a small white head that dissipated to a tiny ringlet. In the aroma, green strawberries with a hint of lacto, toasted wheat, plastic-like phenols. Hmm. The taste was similar, green/unripe strawberries, with a light lemony lacto tartness, giving way to some major plastic phenols, Band-Aids, crackery malts, toasted wheat, and some dry grassy funk. Burp was pure Band-Aids. I'm not sure if this is infected or not, but there's definitely something off here, which is kind of a disappointment after the Apricot Bu, which was incredible. Despite the phenols, the mouthfeel was nice, crisp and dry, body was medium, carbonation lower than average. This was okay, drinkable, but overall, there was just something off here, and it was not very enjoyable.

In my opinion, if you have this beer, drink it now, because it could potentially go downhill fast.

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.
