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.

Very few peach sours can come remotely close to this.

A wild ale's wild Ale. De Garde nailed it on this one. Appearance is a hazy opaque golden orange peach color, absolutely beautiful! This was B1 so the nose was in the face cognac from the moment the bottle was capped ... oh them barrels!! Flavor is big peach, with nice integrated Brandy tones, and the mouthfeel is as rich as a wild Ale can get. Home run with B1 de Garde!

Bottle on-site at de Garde. This one was as advertised and maybe even better. One of the best fruited wild ales I have ever had. Nearly perfect in execution - incredible fruit flavor and just enough sourness. I liked this better than Nectarine Premiere.
