Had this when I was on a de Garde kick.

Look is beautiful...orange, hazy and just amazing. Aroma is funk, sour and stone fruits. Apricot and nectarine galore! Taste is so good...apricot, stone fruit with some lactic sourness. Finishes dry making me want more. Overall, an outstanding brew.

2015 vintage, poured from the bottle into a taster. Tart peaches and nectarines with a touch of oak and the classic de Garde funk. Solid but not spectacular.

Smelled like dirty socks. Its been in my fridge, but I wonder if I kept it too long. Drink fresh is my advice. The mouth feel and balance were there, but I expected more fruit in the taste. The funk also made its presence known in the taste and not in a good way. My buddy who isn't really into craft beer liked it so it wasn't a lost cause. I'd like to try a fresh bottle sometime, because I've liked all the other De Garde fruited beers I've tried.

This one is about as good as it gets. Tons of peach and apricot on the nose and taste. Good acidity, but not overpowering. INcredible carb and amazing balance despite the tartness. This ranks up there with Veritas 015 and Fou for me.
