I don't see how a wild can get any better than this! Pour is nectarine orange and opaque, with a fizzy short lasting head, but a bountiful ring of nectarine pulp decorating the rim of the glass all the way around that's there to stay. Nose is definately nectarine with some peach and star fruit, and taste is all nectarine. Mouthfeel is softly carbonately and tart on the finish. This thing is so good. Nice job de Garde!

Sample at Mikkeller Beer Celebration Copenhagen 2017, red session. Really hazy, milky, bright vanilla color. Aroma has bright apricot and peach notes. Taste is tart an fruity with yogurt notes and dry on the finish.

Tastes like straight up juice. Not much sourness at first but develops as it warms.

2016 vintage, poured into a taster. Huge stone fruit, as expected, well balanced with the wine barrel notes and typical dG funk. Very nicely done overall.
