My man rowmark pulling out the vintage deGarde! very excited to try this one. It held up well (not that I had it fresh but tastes better than older reviews describe). you can definitely tell that this is an older deGarde...way less refined. you can see the potential but this is not like the newer stuff.

the brew itself is kinda like a holiday spiced beer. nose is peppered w all sorts of old bay and potpourri craft store types of scents. taste is more of the same but the honey steps up in a big way. not the deGarde I love but not a bad beer. cool tick and the abv is fairly well hidden.

Pour is transparent golden amber with lots of bubbly white head that does not dissipate. Nose is aggressively sweet, notes of raw honey, hibiscus, earthy spice. Taste is similar, very sweet and sugary, lots of raw honey, a floral earthy spice. Notes of lime juice and hibiscus in back, spicy finish, moderate carbonation, a bit heavy and flabby.
