Sample at Mikkeller Beer Celebration Copenhagen 2018, Yellow Session. Aroma has lots of fruits, mostly ripe apricots, also intense floral notes. Taste is tart, floral with intense unripe stonefruit notes.

Hazy pale orange-yellow with a fuzzy white ring.

Smell is incredibly intense. Fruity Pebble and frozen peach concentrate! Digging deeper and letting it warm, it develops a hint of sweaty, fresh fuzzy peach funk, horse blanket, and lemon sorbet.

Taste is Shockers and Spree with lemon and peach sorbet. There is just an extreme amount of stone fruit through this fizzy, stingingly thin sour body that finishes semi-dry

Wow, does de Garde excel at peach and stone fruit or what?! This is so expressive.

Opaque, thick, and foggy. Looks a lot like a northeast IPA but smells and tastes completely different. Smells extraordinarily fruity (peaches, nectarine, and apricot) with the hint of sour beer lingering in the back. The taste does not betray the smell. It's like drinking beer distilled by fairies in some fantastical garden. Absolute delight. Goes down like juice. Is this even beer at this point?
