Best beer of the February 28th de Garde release. More complex version of Imperial Black Raz Bu.

Shared by Umberto last night.

This one pours an absolutely gorgeous dark pinkish-red, with a small head, and no lacing.

This smells so good, tons of juicy raspberries, a bit of blackberry, good ol' De Garde yogurt, and a fairly significant sourness, about 6/10.

This one tastes just amazing, so much berry flavor just packed into this one. I can't imagine the amount of fruit that to be used in this one- given the flavor/aroma, and the color. It's fairly sour, about 6.5/7 out of 10 or so, not the most sour De Garde beer that I've had, but still a good amount of pucker here. The classic De Garde yogurt type flavor is definitely here, and very nice. There's a little bit of tannic character, berry skins, and a light funk.

This is light bodied, with a crisp and super lively mouthfeel. There's a moderate level of carbonation.

Another just amazing beer from De Garde here.

Wow. Funky ad hell. Oak, then ends with a great raspberry fruity and sweet flavor.
