A fluffy, white head showing moderately-strong retention tops a clear, brassy-copper body with very light auburn hints.
Grapes mix with other fruit notes from the bacteria/wild yeast and come off very well-integrated, barely even being able to be picked out from the rest. Brett is front-and-center here, providing very well-expressed but not overworked notes of key lime, light leather and gentle band aid. Oaky notes provide light vanilla while the base malt seems well-attenuated and provides light honey-like notes for balance. Grapeskin, fuzzy lime and plentiful mineral character all linger nicely. Fruity Brett and grape are strong but the more "dry" tannin, mineral and grapeskin-like notes help build complexity and balance. And all the while you’re left wondering if this is really a De Garde, given the superb gentleness of the acidity. No alcohol or flaw. Eminently sniffable stuff.
Fruity again, with light cherry, strawberry and juicy grape must. Lime-like Brett adds a bit of tangy brightness but that’s the extent of the yeast/bacteria here; it never gets more than nicely tart and the soft, malty texture and tight, spritzy carbonation easily balance and disperse the acidity. Soft oak, tons of Brett and well-integrated Brett notes linger very enjoyably. Very, very well-aged, soft, integrated stuff with no aggressive edges and very bright, well-developed flavors and aromas. Phenomenal stuff.

Bottle shared at Todd’s. A really nice looking clear yellow pour and body is hoppy and tropical. Great. Oakes (19349) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 2, 2017
Hazy straw. Clean lactic, moderate acidity, has a nice vinous character with a little bit of residual sugar. Dry and puckering in the finish.
