This one pours with a very clear light orange hue, with a small head and not much lacing.

This smells like funky cognac, sour peach, acidity/vinegar, and a sort of mineral funk.

This is one of the more acidic de Garde beers I've had- it's bracingly sour, with the peaches adding a big additional tartness. The cognac adds a touch of funky sweetness to tone down the acidity a bit, but it doesn't cut it a whole lot. There's a prickly mineral finish a bit too.

This is light bodied, with a prickly and highly sour mouthfeel- with that feeling lingering long after each sip.

This feels a touch raw, but it's definitely tasty.

Batch 3
The beer pours a Clear gold with a medium white head. It has medium carbonation. The beer smells tart, peaches, oak, and banana. It tastes tart, with peaches, oak, and light funk. The feel is medium light and dry. A good sour from De Garde, but not one of my favorites from one of my favorite breweries.

11/2015 - Batch 1 - Love when this warms - the cognac pops incredibly, the peach is lovely, and the funk takes a back seat; more peach, cognac, and barnyard on the palate, with some classic dG funk to round it out; pretty great body, with a lightly sweet, a touch acidic finish.
