Thanks to rudzud.

Light fizzy head, grapefruit link color, layered ruby red grapefruit juicy color.

Nose juicy plum, flesh mostly, little skin note, sour wheat mash, little sour funky wild notes, hint citrus note, floral notes.

Taste juicy plum, grape skin, lemony tartness, grassy rindy funk like, sour wheat Berliner like, sticky lactic feel, little citrus lemony Tate, etc. Finish sticky flemmy syrupy like, grapefruit and plum lingering, little lemony tartness, funk lingering.

Mouth is med bod, little flemmy, nice carb.

Overall ok, pretty nice.

750 mL bottle poured into a snifter.

Appearance - Pours a thick, viscous, mucous grapefruit-pink body. Small white head. Thin collar. A few random islands. Why is it so thick?

Smell - Has that normal intense de Garde acidic aroma. Light plum aroma. Strong oak.

Taste - Very tart. Again, it's that de Garde sourness. Hard to specify it. Very oaky. Plum flavor builds and becomes the dominant flavor.

Mouthfeel - Grainy. Thick and snotty viscous texture. Very odd. It has that texture only for the first few moments of the sip and then it doesn't feel that thick. Pretty tart. Medium carbonation.

Overall - Why was it released if it's still in that gross rope phase? The flavor is very simple, but tasty.

Shared with JLindros and Threelions.

A - Poured into a Kate the Great tulip a very nice layered hazy grapefruit juice hue with light darker orange towards the bottom.

S - Aromas of nice Berliner notes, good plum, nice funk, solid aromas.

T - Taste is similar to the nose, nice Berliner notes, funk, wheat, sour tart, very light plum and stone fruit. Tasty, however, not much plum.

M - Mouthfeel is nicely carbonated, sharp and clean, nicely tart too.

O - Overall this beer was a tasty beer, however, plum it is not. Bit of a shame but glad to try it.

Fruit seems a touch faded at this point.
