Nice cherry flavor. Mild tart, some oak as well. The bourbon sneaks in with some leather notes. Rather good.

I never really understand when people say that a beer is jammy. I have had plenty of the cliche beers that get tagged with that word that just doesn't go with beer...but this beer....aw...THIS beer, this one IS jammy. homerun, slam dunk, whatever...for what I look for in a beer, this is firing on ALL cylinders. perfection in a glass to me. psyched to have another bottle of this and a few floating around in the tasting group. cannot wait to have it again.

Petrone 84 clearly has the wrong idea here or he's never had a top shelf sour, another great beer fron de garde....buy them all if you see them, trade for them if it's an option....

Pours a dark red. Aroma is sour cherries all the way through. Taste is also cherry forward. Acidity come second. Given the color and residual sweetness, de Garde must have used a ton of cherries in the brewing of this beer. Quite tasty
