Batch 2, I think.

A: Light golden, very good clarity, a fizzy cap of bright white head with largish bubbles in the head despite tight-looking carbonation. No lacing, mediocre retention.

S: Pretty aromatic—I can smell the beer from my glass two feet away. Ripe peach, tart lemony twang, earth and light horse blanket. A little spice and leather as it opens up.

T: Moderate-high, bracing sourness that sort of shocks you into coherence, with a moderate undertone of peach, tangerine and light funk and barnyard. Long, mouth-pickering lemon and stone fruit finish.

M: Medium-light body and medium-high carbonation.

O: I assumed this would be close in character to Nectarine Premiere, which was phenomenal, but this is a fairly pedestrian, overly-sour-fruited sour which is not unlike many other versions coming out from breweries everywhere.

Something has to have been wrong with my bottle. Poured like jelly, little to no peach flavor, no carbonation. An overall strange experience for sure.

Cloudy straw appearance with slight white head that disipates quickly. Aroma is a sour peach that is very mild and pleasant. Taste is a very nice sour peach.

Batch 2 drank in a snifter on 9/16/2017

A phenomenal beer that I will be thrilled to try again in the future. The tartness was done to perfection, the peach flavor was spectacular, and the barrel came through nicely as well. Really well done beer and another amazing offering from de garde.
