Entered from notes at the sour fest at Brouwer's. The description on the menu was, "De Garde Desay Deux Oak Aged Wild with Refermented Raspberry"

Pours clear, pinkish in color, with a medium head. Very pretty. Smell is raspberry and tartness.

Taste is mild raspberry, but a very strong tartness.

Mouthfeel is smooth and dry. Overall, good.

Poured into a Pint Defiance tulip. The body is a cloudy red, with a finger pinkish white head. Aromas consist of raspberry, strawberry, and a hint of funk. Flavors are the same. The feel is medium bodied with medium carbonation. The beer is tangy, but not sour.

Bottle with no date poured in a large tulip, nice ruby red color with a soapy white head that leaves spotted lacing when consumed. The smell is: funk, tobacco, oak, citrus, hay, berries, and some vanilla. The taste is sour raspberry up front leaving the barrel notes in the back and the wild funk to linger. The feel is jammy, effervescent, and finishes dry. Overall its de garde so it's delicious!

On-tap at Capital City. Snifter.

A: Served a deep raspberry dark pink with a thin fuzzy light pink head. Thin sheet of lace down the glass.
S: Nose is raspberry, sweet candy, and fruit juice. Smells like candy.
T: Raspberry is soft and sweet. Slightly candy like, not exactly like biting into fresh fruit, but still raspberry dominated flavors with tons of fruit. Tartness is low key with no drying tannins and no acidic bite. On the sweeter side. As the beer warms I get fruit punch flavors mixed with the raspberry. Definitely fruit punch-like.
M: Lighter mouthfeel with a thinner body, smooth and drinkable, soft carbonation, no acidity.
O: Personally too sweet for me to love. Once I got fruit punch in my head that's all I could taste.

Desay Deux is an absolutely phenomenal wild ale! The raspberry aroma and taste couldn't have been done any better in my opinion. This beer has incredible drinkability as well; it's so refreshing.

750ml bottle. Served in a snifter glass. Poured accidentally by a buddy at a tasting, but I'm not going to complain. Pours reddish purple body with a flourish; one and a half finger light pink head with good retention, bits of lacing. Smell is primarily raspberry; certainly not as tart as The Purple was, a bit of oak, moderate vinegar, light oak and funk, touch of grain. Flavour follows the nose; fair bit of raspberry and vinegar, touch of oak, a little bit of distinct fruit skin, perhaps grape. Mouthfeel is medium-lighter bodied, effervescent, refreshingly dry. Good stuff that's for sure.
