Hilarous abv for a "berliner weisse". At any rate though whatever it is it is tart, slightly funky, with fruitiness and some sour acidity.

Bottle shared by Douglas Thanks!
A: Gusher out the gate. Watermelon red with no head to speak of. Lacing.
N: Vinous grape, straw, grapefruit, spruce, cherry, leather, tobacco, dirt, funk, mint.
T: Lactic acid/ sweet-tart profile similar to that of Cascade beers.
M: Light body, big carbonation.
O: Good beer with an interesting flavor profile that mostly works. I wish this wasn’t one-dimensional on the tastebuds, but it was one of the better beers of the night.

Bottle. Pours cranberry red with small white head. Flavor and aroma are Tart and lactic funks, cherry limeade, sea shells, oak, and Concord grapes. Leaves a quenchable sour note on the tongue after a slightly chalked out finish. Other notes of cranberry and lemonade. Another interesting brew from De Garde.

750 ml bottle to goblet (shared by Dogbones). Looks good; a cloudy deep raspberry with white head that steadily dissipates into lacing. Smells good too; wheaty and mildly tart with grape notes. Tastes like it smells with a tart mouthfeel. Great beer!
