I had this on tap at Special Brews in Lynwood, WA and I was surprised at how good this one was. I have been mixed on De Garde in the past because although I like their beers a lot of times I also find them a little to sour and acidic for my taste. But this one was easily the. Out drinkable and delicious De Garde beer I have had so far. Not sure what the mystery fruit flavor is, but it definitely works. If this is the direction De Garde is going to start taking with its beers then count me in

Had on tap at Pint Defiance. The body is a hazy golden orange with no head. Aromas consist of fresh orange peel, juicy peaches, apricot jam, pinapple, and mild coconut. Flavors are the same, with a mild tartness. Light bodied with medium carbonation, with a dry finish.

This is super mild by de Garde's standards. What I love about it is drinking it now (it's still an awesome beer) and having a few bottles to lay down for a while to see how the flavor develops

On tap at The Growler Guys.

A clear light orange with a thin white head with decent retention and lacing, this looks solid. The nose had a lot going on. Green grapes, white wine, alcohol, stone fruit, a little vanilla, some clove and pepper are present. Lots of great aromatics here, but it fitsdoes seem a little disjointed, especially ruth the vinous notes. On the palate, this beer opens with s a blend of hay, funk, a mild honey like sweetness and dinner lemon. The mid palate is little sweet and honey like. A moderate amount of fruity is present, with the stone fruit really noticeable. Unfortunately, the high ABV does make itself be known, lending a mildly boozy bit. Drying on the finish with a blend of lemon, stone fruit and honey, this is a solid beer.

Big foamy fizzy head fades semi quickly, little lacing, murky orange peach color.

Nose great tart stone fruit and pineapple, apricot peach like, loads of pineapple, bright citrus, candied apricot, dried pineapple, musty passion fruit, musty tropical, little creamy malt.

Taste brings candied fruits, creamy malt note with a faint booze warmth, bright carb brings nice tropical, big pineapple, a little candied stone fruit apricot, generic tropical, sweet syrupy like, nice musty passion fruit and generic tropical again, some esters and weird creamy thing. Finish dry sticky little flemmy, lingering candied stone fruit peopineapple and musty passion fruit, little ester.

Mouth is med bod, little sticky flemmy finish with overly somewhat distracting carb.

Overall pretty good, some flaws ands clashes but otherwise nice.
