GlasgowTAD (1392) - Glasgow, SCOTLAND - JUN 19, 2016
Bottle. Pours brownish pink-red with a small light pink head which recedes to a pinkish circumference. Aroma is cherry, oak, slight cinnamon. Taste is cherry sweet, high cherry sour, clean cherry acidity, highly lip-puckeringly sour.

GT (9982) - Oceanside, California, USA - JUN 12, 2016
750mL at home thanks to brainlair/DG Keepers. Hazed deep red color with pink soda foam. Nose has that all but too common now green plant and aloe juice character. Doesnt really open up past that. Taste is light cherry up front, huge lemon/citric acid, medium lactic acid, just too much acid and not much cherry. Some sugar or reblending in with fresh or unsour cherry beer would do this some good. Just two errors that are becoming omnipresent with De Garde.

750ml. Clean purplish hue with pink tight head. Slightly artificial, over ripe banana, cherry, marzipan. Tart lemony, slight cherry, wheaty, minerality.

markwise (5241) - North of Tampa, Florida, USA - APR 21, 2016
Pours a hazy pink with a white head. Nose is cherry, oak, vanilla, vinegar, and sweetness. Flavor is similar with oak, cherry, vanilla, sweetness, and funk. Light to medium in body with lingering sweet and cherry.

after4ever (7656) - Brier, Washington, USA - MAR 21, 2016
750, capped. Pours a cloudy dark crimson with bright ruby edges. Loose pinkish head that fades. Bright sweet snack cherry nose, they say theyre Montmorencies, and who am I to disagree? Creamy medium oily body with soft carb. Snack cherry mid palate. Not quite Hostess Fruit Pie sweet, but sweet. Definitely not on the tart pie cherry side, but theres some sweet balsamic there to bring up the balance. Long sweet finish.

brokensail (16111) - Dublin, California, USA - MAR 3, 2016
Bottle @ RateBeer Best 2016. Milky red beer with a sort of pink head. Wasnt the hugest fan of this. I get a fair amount of green apple, household cleaner, and cherry. Fairly sour and sort of acetic. A bit of fruity/cherry sweetness at least. Maybe just a touch of spiced pie filling. Eh.

Pour from a bottle at RB Best. Pours a cloudy red wine color with a lasting off-white head. Notes of cherries, grapes, oak, yogurt, earth, and florals. Light-bodied, with moderate carbonation and a dry, tart, floral mouthfeel. Nice sour cherry red.
