Salmoniform (677) - Sweet Home, Oregon, USA - SEP 2, 2014
Poured from bottle to glass. Red hue with fizzy pink head that dissipated immediately. Aroma is lactic, grape, acetic, straw, oak. Mouthfeel is refreshing with a light body and zesty carbonation. Taste is dry throughout with a nice sourness extending through the finish. Overall this is a really nice brew and has dried up a bit since I first had it at the release.

Bottle thanks to Chow. Pours a cloudy dark pink with medium frothy off white head that lasts. The aroma is strong oak, funk, and grape. Medium mouthfeel with a nice tart grape and light wheat, very good.

crossovert (7443) - Illinois, USA - JUL 26, 2014
Hilarous abv for a "berliner weisse". At any rate though whatever it is it is tart, slightly funky, with fruitiness and some sour acidity.

Sarlacc83 (766) - Oregon, USA - JUL 6, 2014
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.
