This one pours a golden straw yellow, mostly clear, with a small head, and lots of lacing.

This smells like a big citrus explosion, light salt, some oak, and a whopping lactic acidity.

Like a lot of de Garde's offerings, this is wildly sour, with a huge citrusy hop charge on top of it- it's almost overwhelming, but it stops just short and sticks with being pretty delectable. There's a hint of oak, and not as much fun as I would expect from these guys. There's a hint of oak which is nice.

This is light bodied, and very crisp and juicy. The drinkability is off the charts.

If this were easier to get, I could drink it by the gallon in the summer. It's delicious stuff.

Hose poured out a light to medium yellow-gold. Foam dissipated quickly and left about a quarter-finger's circular ring of foam around my teku glass. Smell was citrus, a little bit of wood/pine and some sour funk. The taste was quite nice. Refreshing citrus with a touch of spice and wood. Such a clean beer - I have not had many DeGardes but I am becoming a fast fan they all just seem to be so clean and have this pleasant tart pucker quality once it gets in the jowels. Very complex with a sharp citrus acidity and then the dry finish. Solid stuff.

Bottle shared by jc1762. Thanks Jon.

Hazy yellow body with a quarter inch of white collar. Aromas of pine, hops, orange juice, funk. So soft on the palate. Juicy and delicious. Mild funk and sour character. Gentle salt and coriander notes. Sophisticated and wonderful. Effortless. de Garde is amazing.
