Bottle shared by Barry, thanks man.

This one pours a ridiculous shade of red, so vibrant like all deGarde beers. So much fruit was obviously used here.

This smells like very sour raspberry, a little bit of cherry, the classic DG yogurty and lemony funk, and a ton of lacto.

There isn't a ton of complexity here, but it's still quite tasty. There's just an absurd amount of fruit, more raspberry than cherry. It's very very sour, with the classic deGarde funk taste intertwined. I don't get really anything from the base beer.

This has a super juicy mouthfeel, with a good level of carbonation, and a definite lingering sourness.

This was very tasty for sure, a bit more complexity from the base beer would be nice though.
