Poured a dark brown color with a light head that disappeared in seconds. The aromas present a vinous quality - giving off a whiff of red wine, saison yeast, and a touch of farmhouse funk. The flavor was surprisingly tart which I did not expect for this style. Immediately starts out with vinous red wine grapes that sticks around through the finish. Touch of oak and very tart. Finishes dry with a slight leather taste. Mouthfeel: light bodied and acidic. Overall: not exactly a beer I expected when it's called Winter Garde. Still good nonetheless.
