A: pours a very slightly hazy golden color with reddish hues; small loose head fades quickly to leave a thin ring of small bubbles around the glass; no lacing

S: green grape skin, lemon juice, lactic acid, very faint red berry; exhibits a light to medium salty character throughout; more cranberry is apparent as it warms

T: faint sweetness on entry which is quickly washed over by a wave of acidity; lemon juice, lactic acid, slight cranberry which blends well with the tartness from the lactic acid; light saltiness on the finish with lightly prickly acidity; tartness is on the high side of moderate, but not enough for a full pucker

M: good mouthfeel, on the full side for a Berliner; the carbonation is on the low side but it's helped by the prickliness of the acidity

O: this is a very good beer, but not as good as I was expecting; so much of what we know about the flavor of fresh cranberry comes from it's tartness, and that flavor is mostly lost in the tartness of the Berliner; still one of the best Berliners I've had, but I set the bar on another level when I'm drinking de Garde
