From a bottle, pours a cloudy and light yellow/straw color. It is very carbonated with a large fizzy head.

The nose is earthy wheat grains, barnyard funk, lemon, a little yeast and spice. The flavor has a nice hoppy citrus component to it. Nice grapefruit notes, white pepper. I don't get much barrel on this, it is absent. The finish is very tangy fruit/citrus flavor. Good, above average, not great.

Pours a light hazy citrus gold with many inches of fluffy yellow-white head that dissipates slowly and looks firm.

Smells of freshy grassy malts and citrus notes with a light grassy hoppiness.

Taste follows, grassy malt with citrus sweetness and a lightly bitter hop finish.

Medium body with tingling carbonation on the tongue.

An interesting brew that goes down pretty easy and tastes fresh. Interesting approach to a De Garde that I personally look forward to trying again.

750 ml bottle into a snifter.

pours a pale murky yellow with a nice carbonated head that dissipates quick. smell of hops, yeast, slightly sweet with lemon. taste has a good amount of lemon and peach skins. very bitter finish. oak is prevalent. definitely dry hopped and incredibly hoppy for the style. high carbonation. mild body.

overall very interesting for the style. much hoppier than most. enjoyed it.
