poured from a 750mL bottle into a stemmed taster glass. pours a foggy orange with minimal white head. huge fleshy, juicy nectarines on the nose and taste. a lot of funk with some oak impact as well. excellent mouthfeel. not overly thick but perfectly carbonated. one of the best dGs i’ve had the pleasure of drinking.

this one has been on my most wanted list for awhile, so huge thanks to my boy for scoring this for us to share, what a gem! its as good as i hoped it would be, the nectarine popping in here, natural and juicy, the essence of the fruit as so many de garde beers deliver, and it seems right in its peak, bottle from september 2020. pale brew with some haze through most of the bottle, very fizzy but not holding a ton of head, and a nose that my mouth is still watering from, wow its puckery, nectarous, and juicy, ripe and sweet and sour at the same time, wood heavy, fully wild, incredible aroma here and it gets better as it warms, more fruit, more funk, more wood. the flavor is fantastic, the fruit hits mostly at the end, its mature vinous funky wild beer up front, slightly raw on the grain side maybe some unmalted wheat in here, pils malt, doughy and crackery and simple but earthy. the ferment is sharp but not overly sour, tannic from the oak, maybe some white wine character too, lots of well developed bretty funk too. when the fruit hits its like taking a bite of a ripe nectarine, and it stays on the tongue through the finish. impressively real, forward, and its crazy this is as dry as it is because the fruit is so sweet, amazing. this has already developed well in the bottle, but i think its safe to say even more time would evolve it further. its maybe not as complex on the yeast side as my favorite de garde beers, but the fruit element is as good as it gets. great carbonation here too, lively and excited feeling on the palate, fits the summery fruitiness. loved this, very thankful! i know this is one of their highest rated beers, but its probably not even in my top five from them, amazing as it is...

13 July 2021 - Beer #244 - BA Top 250 Alert!

Acquired via trade

Appearance: 4 - a lovely bright orange. Head fizzled away immediately.

Nose: 5 - tons of nectarine. I like those better than peaches.

Taste: 4 - mmm, interesting. It's a very impressive sour, but it's missing the blast of fruit I was expecting. Tastes a bit hoppy, if you can believe it.

Mouth: 5 - zillions of tiny bubbles. Expertly crafted.

Overall: 4 - reminds me of some of the best non-fruited sours I've had, but that's not what this is supposed to be.

To-go can, getting to finally try a Degarde for the 2nd time. The color looks stone fruit peach oranges. The smell is very distinct of sourness, vinegary, slight fruit notes. Overall I was hoping for that special first sip that takes my breath away but a bit disappointment bit nevertheless, it's good. Cheers

Poured from fridge temp but allowed to warm a few degrees. Pours a gorgeous opaque orange with barely any head (on an aggressive pour). The nose is mind-blowing. It's bursting with fresh nectarines. Also getting a good amount of orange creamsicle. A touch of tartness and some sour patch kids. Also getting a hint of leathery funk. The taste is amazing and nicely matches the nose. Again, nectarines dominate, and I love nectarines! Definitely some sourness upfront, but not mouth-puckering. Definitely getting some vanilla ice cream, a bit of wheat, and maybe a hint of orange peel. There is a nice tart-funkiness on the aftertaste. This is just a wonderful beer.

Extra mild, not much funk, tartness or sourness. Nectarines are fairly acidic and fruity. Lacks distinction - decent, not incredible. Fruit may have fallen off?

I have to say, this disappointed me a lot. Granted, it may be significantly aged (unable to determine batch number) but it's just not that remarkable.
