750 mL bottle poured into a snifter.

Appearance - Ruby body. Slight haze. Medium white head. Thin collar.

Smell - Fruity. Grainy. Berry aroma. Light on that standard De Garde aroma.

Taste - Nice berry fruit flavor. Grainy. Light grape, almost a wine flavor. Mild sourness.

Mouthfeel - Medium light body. Pleasant tartness.

Overall - Doesn't have the intense De Garde sourness I'm used to, which is nice. Very nice and pleasant sourness.
