phaleslu (9380) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - FEB 20, 2015
750 ml bottle via trade. Pours a clear gold color with a small off-white head. Notes of vanilla, grapes, oak, lemon, yogurt, leather, herbs and spices, and lime. Light-bodied, with a tart but smooth mouthfeel and low to moderate carbonation. More rounded than sharp. Picks up some vinous notes that donít overpower. Nice collaboration here.

DrSilverworm (9671) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - FEB 16, 2015
750ml bottle, thanks to phaleslu for sharing. Thin off-white ring of head. Hazy orange peach color. Super nice oaky, mild lemony, mild spicy, some begian yeastiness, and mild vinous tannic aromas. Love it. Probably my favorite aroma of this tasting so far. Medium-plus body. Smooth, kind of soft, lighter carbonation. Mildly slick, good dry aspect to the taste, too. Moderate-plus sour taste, light to moderate sweet, mild spiciness. Really dig it. Great sour farmhouse.

Lukaduke (3011) - Gray, Maine, USA - NOV 16, 2014
Bottle shared thanks to JBPortland ! Pours a hazy golden straw color with a finger of white fizz. Nose is murky barnyard funk, floral fieldgrass and some hints of vinous fruit. Palate follows the nose with interesting layers of guava, toasted grain, berry skins, mushroom, wet oak, tart earthy cherry. Nice lingering foggy grain.

JBPortland (1488) - Hampton Roads, Virginia, USA - NOV 15, 2014
750ml bottle pours hazy dark orange with medium head. Nose is barny funk, round vinous grape, wet wood, and fruits with shadows of the classic De Garde horse stable funk. There is a faint hint of band-aid/plastic but very little. Taste is crisp, balanced acidity, some subtle band-aid notes but they stay out of the way for the most part, old wet wood, soft red wine, some field hay, grape and dark berry. Finish is funk, funk, and more funk, some nice interwoven wine notes and oaky character. I prefer the Chardonnay barreled version but this is solid.

hopscotch (10601) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - NOV 9, 2014
Bottle... Pours cloudy and golden with a small, fleeting, white head. The aroma shares herbal notes, apricot fruitiness, yeast-driven spiciness, woody horseblanket funk and dry, vinous acidity. Medium-bodied with jazzy carbonation. The flavor is tart, fruity and bright - lemon and stone-fruits abound. Tart, tangy finale. Bottle courtesy of biggsbowler!
