750 mL bottle poured into a nonic pint glass.

Pours light purple with a ton of fizziness. A noisy head develops but rapidly dissipates, leaving a lively looking beer with a bubbly top. Carbonation is immense and relentless. This looks something deliciously fruity. 5

Smells jammy, rich with tart, acidic fruit, and some lemon. 4.25

Taste carries over the nose's offerings. Jammy and tart fruit flavor that is intense and similar to biting into a an underripe raspberry or blueberry. Lemon citric notes carry things out. It's a simple recipe but nice. 4.25

Tart and acidic with a light, well-carbonated body. Drinks like a charm, tart, but incredibly sippable. You'll want to keep drinking. Refreshing to boot. 4.25

Great fruit character and a good mid-Sunday beer if you are planning lots of new beers for New Beer Sunday.

750 mL bottle poured into a snifter.

Appearance - Very pretty red body. Medium white head.

Smell - There's that classic de Garde yeast. Strong yeast. Some fruitiness. Lots of acidity.

Taste - Man it's sour. Seltzer like flavor. Lemon and lime and aciditity. A little bit of blueberry flavor in the back end.

Mouthfeel - Very light. High carbonated.

Overall - Overwhelmingly sour without the flavor to back it up.
