Shared with a friend who luckily realized he still had this cellared when he moved! Tons of Apricot here....almost pulp at the bottom and poured a murky orange. Lots of tart fruit but not so tart that it was overwhelming. Amazing wild! Hope they make it again soon!

Poured from the bottle into a tulip. Huge apricot and other complimentary stone fruit on the nose and taste. Straight juice along with a bit of the typical de Garde funk. Outstanding.

Wow, I can't believe that a Berliner Weiss can look liked this. It looks like a DDH Trillium aka Orange Juice. The mouthfeel is also much better in the Imperial version. Definitely one of the top sours I've had to date.

Very good! I love sour beers, I was not able to detect much Apricot however.

Outstanding. HUGE apricot/fruity aroma. Tart and bright, with a nice fruity punch. Not overly tart.
