Poured from a bomber into a snifter alongside my best drinking buddy Abbbp.

Appearance: Hazy, orange/peach color with a small white fizzy head that disappears quickly and doesn’t leave any lacing to speak of.

Smell: Loads of funk, brett, quite vinous too. The brett isn’t a farmhouse thing, it’s more fruity.

Taste: Tart, so much that it hits me in the jaw at first, but it mellows out and becomes quite sessionable. Some crackery malt comes through toward the end. Somewhat vinous, but not anything that screams Chardonnay to me. The sour is a more lactic sour than anything else, which is very nice. Relatively dry.

Mouthfeel: Relatively low carbonation, which I kind of like for this beer. Lingers a while.

Overall: Another great offering from De Garde and Side Project. This is very nice. Looking forward to trying the pinot noir version.
