32oz growler poured into a berliner bowl. This pours a hazed darker than expected golden color with a finger of quick dissolving head. Other than the light copper-like coloration, all things seem typical of your standard berliner.
The smells is lemony lactic with suggestions of strong greek yogurt and hints of sulfur. At times this flirts with acedic aromas and fruit faintly like cherry which is strange yet quite inviting. I am salivating before evwn getting into the glass.
The taste is tart and lemony lactic with suggestions of greek yogurt all through the middle just like the aroma suggested. The finish has a bit of dusty grain almost like brett or cracker crumbs. As it warns up, it gets even more tart to almost acedic with a mild almost chlorine feel to it which is strange in the aftertaste.
This is a light bodied brew with a modest to moderate amount of fizzy feel and carbonation. Overall this is a pretty solid berliner that I would love to drink again if the opportunity presented itself. My only gripe is that my idealistic berliner is one that I could crush glass after glass of in the summertime. This one has some serious bite to it and while sour heads might rejoice, I am left wishing the second pour didnt feel so much like a chore.

on tap a few different times
looks like bright yellow grapefruit juice
smells like a funky barn that was doused in vinegar (in a good way)
you have to be a real fan of sour and farmhouse ales to like this one. if those are up your alley, this is a really good beer. almost kambucha-esque the way it smells like vinegar but tastes sour and fruity. very unique and different. this brewery came out of nowhere and I have enjoyed everything they make. not a beer for the masses though.

3.6/5 rDev -13%

On tap at Apex. Really excited to start trying some De Garde beers.
A: Cloudy straw yellow with a complete lack of head. It's pretty muddy, unfortunately.
N: White wine grape, starw, light acid, buttered biscuit (but not buttery), green apple, lemon zest, and grapefruit rind. Nice.
T: Lightly lemon sourness with a modicum of sweetness. Very simple and round. Needs a little more definition before it stands up and sings.
M: Very light and well carbonated. Refreshing on a summer day.
O: I could drink quite a bit of this, especially if it's dialed in a little bit so that the taste becomes cleaner. Still, at 2.1%, there's a lot of flavor here.
