750 ml bottle shared by someone at seeswo’s house. Thanks again, fellas! Pours a hazy purple color with a small purple-tinted head that settles into a ring. Tart and jammy berries galore, with lemon, plum skins, light funk, and a lot of acidity. Medium-bodied, with moderate to medium carbonation and a tart, acidic, fruity mouthfeel. Great stuff. koleminer20 (3978) - Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA - FEB 2, 2017
From notes. Had at a tasting with the group at Erik’s house on January 22. 750 mL bottle. The pour is a beautiful dark purple with a thicker medium pink head that falls to a dense cap, leaving no lace. The aroma is spectacular. Heavy boysenberry, light oak funk, light citrus, a hint of wet oak, and a light barnyard dustiness lingering. The sharp tartness of the boysenberries is just fantastic. Everything else adds to the overall, but the fruits are just awesome. The flavor is a lot jammier than the nose would lead on, but it’s not a sweet jam. There is just a bit more fruit there. The oak and funkiness are still solid, but the fruit takes over a little more. The mouth feel is light and crisp with a bright carbonation and a lingeringly tart boysenberry and a hint of funk. Damn, this is fantastic. klm1 (1870) - Bled/SF, - JAN 29, 2017

Thanks to Matt for this lovely beer, partagée chez Luc. Robe foncée qui rappelle le jus de raisin et/ou de bleuets. La mousse fait également partie du spectacle, ce qui est rare pour des bières présentant ce niveau d’acidité. Le fruit est bien réel, le foudre l’est tout autant. Contrairement aux bières que j’ai pu goûter de la brasserie De Garde, celle-ci est beaucoup moins lactique et mieux balancée. Le fruit peut paraître jammy par moment certes, mais il est bien naturel et l’ensemble formé par le bois et le funk est des plus agréable. C’est sauvage, campagnard. J’ai l’impression d’une compote cuisinée dans une grange de campagne sur un poêle à bois. Bien surette (c’est du De Garde après tout) sans trop l’être, j’ai éprouvé un beau coup de coeur ici! ineedbeer (2257) - Oakland, California, USA - SEP 12, 2016
Poured from a 750 ml Boysen Premiere bottle.
Aroma is very boysenberry forward and somewhat jammy. Moderate berry skin tannins with some light oak notes and tannins as well. A light phenolic note that comes across as berry leaves and stems. A faint citrus note.
Pours a deep, very dark purple, with a thick, medium sized, purple head that recedes steadily to the edges where it lingers briefly before disappearing.
Flavor is rather acidic, but only slightly sharp. There is a light citrus note. Moderately strong berry juice notes with a light jamminess. Some light stem and leaf phenolic notes. Moderate tannins with a hint of oak.
Mouthfeel is medium bodied with medium carbonation. Low astringency and low alcohol warmth.
Overall, a very boysenberry forward beer. There is a ton of berry juice character with a bit of other berry notes as well. Acidity is fairly prevalent, but it is only a bit sharp. Fairly one dimensional.
