Had on tap at Lures Bar & Grille. Aroma and flavor are incredibly complex with white wine, leather, oak, funk, dark fruit, tannins, and sour vinegar all coming into play. 11% abv is well-hidden.

Saved this as a bonus on a tasting session of on tap beers.
Smells like sour peaches. Very strait forward.
First taste gives a very fruity sourness. Like biting a pomegranate or a pomelo infused in alcohol.
The aftertaste gives a silky smooth citrus feel in the back of my mouth. Alcohol evaporates.
Lingers on to enjoy.

750 ml bottle into a goblet. 2015 blend 6. Had 12/30/17.

Pours a rosy amber color, a little cloudy, with not much of a head and a little filmy lacing. Smells sour. Aromas of cherries, wine, oak, plums, grapes, dates, figs, light spices, some vanilla. Smells great. The taste leads with grapes, then wine, oak, malt, some cherries and figs, light vanilla and tobacco. A little sour, with a sweet note midway. Smooth, dry, a solid fuller body for the style, well carbonated.

Wow, it was hard to just sip this one. So well balanced and complex. Incredible grapes and wood, and structured in a totally different way from any other Biere de Garde I’ve had before. It’s a little pricey, but worth every penny. Run to get this one, when you can.

Beautifully cask aged. Love to let it warm up to 50 degrees when I am patient enough. Have enough every vintage since 2006. A great beer to cellar but honestly peaks round 5 years.
