Nice beer, with a nice caramel color. Noticeable, but not over powering sour/funk flavor, but is a pleasant drink

750 mL bottle. Aroma is very fruity with quite a bit of overripe stone fruit, peaches, pears, red apple and citrus. Moderate toasted bread with hints of toffee and caramel. Hints of light phenolics and citrus. Pours a murky, light brown with some copper hues and a thick, somewhat small, tan head that shows average retention as it recedes to the edges and lingers. Lacing is moderate with small legs. Flavor is slightly tart with quite a bit of fruit character. Lots of cherry, cassis, fig, prune and plum with some light red apple. Light acidity adds hints of lemon and orange. Medium light bitterness. Medium light malt notes of toasted bread with hints of toffee and caramel. Mouthfeel is medium bodied with medium carbonation. Low astringency and low alcohol warmth. Overall, a pretty nice beer, but I have a hard time characterizing this as a Biere de Garde. It is missing the malt character that I would expect, but the fruit notes and the light acidity are great. This reminds me more of a fall/winter saison, but perhaps that is nitpicking

Bottle thanks to my friend from bay area. Light brownish pour with an off white head. Mild sour fruit aromas. Smooth and mellow with sour fruit and citrus highlights. Very good mouthfeel and body. Another solid bottle from SARA...

Bottle. shared @SARA. Pours cloudy chestnut, small tan head, decent lacing. Aroma is tart cherry, oaky, a bit of barnyard funk. Really opens up as it warms. Flavor is light sweet, light tart, some funkiness but not strong, lots of oak tannins, but not much astringence. Fairly light body, drying finish. Let this one breathe a bit if you want to enjoy it.

Cloudy caramel color, not much foam but it laces. Light sour aroma, cherry. Flavor is tart up front, fruity, then lactic. Turns into a bread flavor in the finish. Mix of sweet and dry. Subtle, well-crafted beer.
