750ml bottle. Served in a snifter 3/4/2015.

A- Beautiful hazy orange-yellow body with a one finger white head, nice longevity and retention. Eventually disappears after about 5 minutes into what looks like hazy peach goodness.

S- Amazing peach and apricot juiciness, with a nice stone pit aroma to make things more interesting. Wheat, lactobacillus and plenty of tartness abound in this beer. Smells great.

F- As hard as it is to believe, it tastes even better than it smells. Crisp peach and apricot fruity flavours, earthy stone pit, wheat, lactobacillus, minerals, even a mild bit of funk that is a bit stronger than usual as far as Bu's go. Delicious stone fruit juice.

M- Medium bodied, soft but substantial with plenty of lasting juicy stone fruit flavours. Very easy to crush at what, 4.4%?

O- My new favourite beer from De Garde. Everything that Apricot Bu was, but even more delicious.

Way too sour. I find this happens with a lot of De Garde Bu's. If you drink one fresh, it is a fruity and delicious berliner. If you drink one six months down the road, sometimes it becomes a sour lacto bomb that overcomes some of the awesome fruit flavor. Not sure why this is but it is regrettable. Drink these fresh.

Super clear color. The nose is mainly a subtle sour. Taste has some juicy and sour notes followed by some fruityness. Finish is sour. Basically sour all the way through. Solid sour all the way through.

Appearance: Orange straw color. Beautiful cloudy haze with a slight lacing

Smell: Like smashing peaches and apricots to your nose. The fruit is very apparent.

Taste: You can pick up both the peach and apricot but overwhelmingly you perceive the blend of both which is a fantastic pairing. Nice and delicate tartness on the back end. Another De Garde homerun.

Feel: Slight bubbly mouth, wheat and oak picked up.

Overall: Straight up beer mimosa. This beer is world class.
