From 11/28/15 notes. 750ml bottle into a tulip.

Pours a great looking reddish-purple color with purple head and moderate carbonation evident. Tons of sour blueberries, tart dark fruits, oak, spices, light funk, acidic, vinegar. Medium body and moderate to high carbonation.

Overall a great smell and look. Taste is lighter, but a very good beer. Another winner from de Garde.

The aroma hits of tart Warheads, blueberry.

The flavor follows with medium tart, blueberry candy, blueberry peel, and a familiar Berliner sharpness of tart flavors.

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.
