Pours a clear yellow-gold, very wine-like in appearance. Smell is very grapey, with some sherry notes. Taste is similar, really nice. This one falls somewhere between a beer and a wine. Very good.

A beer that I think would resonate more with wine lovers. Shows clear signs of the brewers affinity for grapes and challenging the boundary between beer / wine. Shows oak, a riesling sweetness, with a body that carries a bit more weight even with it's spot on carbonation.

750ml bottle into tulip.

A: Pours a deep golden with a very active and effervescent carbonation. A brief and very active white head foamed up after the pour and quickly faded into a soft and lasting collar.
S: Very dry and crisp nose with notes of white wine, white grape, and mineral water. There's a kiss of lemon zest, grainy wheat, and very subtle Riesling sweetness.
T: Sweet taste with more of the reisling coming through. Vinous, drying, and clean overall. Crispy dry grain backbone, clean, soft, tartness, with a kiss of earthy spice mixed with the vinous white grape and sweet Riesling.
M: Light crisp and clean body, drying mouthfeel, very active and effervescent carbonation. Scrubbing bubbles.
O: Beautiful balance and effervescence. Not overly sweet with Riesling but still taste the grape. Drinks well, smooth tartness. Dry and balanced.

Golden bronze with a white head, thin ring of retention.

Aroma is basically white wine, lots of grape, some vanilla and oak.

Taste has a pleasant green apple tartness, lots of white wine grape, leather, hints of vanilla and oak.

A nice, light residual sweetness compliments the light acidity.

Sample at Mikkeller Beer Celebration Copenhagen 2017, blue session. Aroma is floral with light funk and farmhouse notes. Taste is tart with light aspirin notes and some yeast funk. Body is light and dry.

Bottle from Belmont Station.

A clear copper with a dense, white head that falls off rapidly, this looks solid. The nose is solid, with a blend of the classic deGarde notes of strong lactic acid, mild funk and a bright and confident fruit expression. Sweet grapes, vinous and dessert-like as opposed to some of the drier, more summery stone fruit notes that other dG grape beers have had. Mild tannins are present. The palate opens with a mildly jammy grape character, mildly oxidized (is that what late harvest grapes taste like? intensely fruity and mildly overripe?). Moderate lactic sourness is present. Rather surprisingly, this feel rather thin on the palate and even a little watery on the finish. Grape flavor lingers on in the finish. Medium-light in body and initially a little overcarbonated, this dies down to a more appropriate level. Sourness is also less than typical for de Garde.
