neongolden (2197) - Linköping, Sweden/Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 8, 2018
(Tap sample @ MBCC 2017 Red Session, Copenhagen) Pours hazy orange with a white head. Notes of intense juicy fresh nectarine, tart lactic edge conveys apricot too, floral perfume, citrus peel, orange flesh, moderate funky hay pile, touches of oak, a little malt but it's just supportive. Overall balance is pretty heavy tart but the juicy fruitiness balances that a bit, and it finishes quite dry and persistently nectarine-forward with some fruit skin and oak. Medium bodied, crisp, with rather light carbonation. Just beautiful, expressively fruity and truly well-balanced for a bold American sour.

Bottle thanks to Erik, as 8.4 %. Aroma of peach, nectarine nectar, vanilla, tart. Hazy orange. Taste is dry, nectarine juice, light+ sour. Light+ body, dry oily feel and tart nectarine juice finish.

Strong aroma of nectarine with a tart after finish. The beer is nicely balanced from beginning to finish.

ClarkVV (7141) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - FEB 8, 2018
750mL bottle drunk 9/20/17.
Fully hazy, despite a long, cold rest in my fridge. Bright apricot-peach-golden, well-carbonated but with a fleeting, yellow-tinted head showing no retention.
Much like my first run-in with De Garde (apricot gose), this thing just pours forth the authentic, fresh, perfectly extracted/expressed fruit. White wine, tropical notes, tart juices, tons of funky, mineral-rich pit and in place of the sometimes high acetic character from De Garde, you have a wonderfully juicy, tropical Brett character that joins forces with the fruit to really push the nose over the top.
Soft and malty texture with ultra-fine, tight carbonation and high attenuation with excellent fruit integration and a juicy, pit and skin-heavy expression. More Brett than anything, with only trailing sourness from the lactobacillus. I've had my fair share of excellent fruited beers from Hill, Jester King, Side Project and the like, but De Garde has to be number one when it comes to this sort of thing.

SinH4 (7053) - Garching b. München, GERMANY - FEB 3, 2018
Tap. Murky orange color with white head. Aroma is nectarine, maracuja, lots of maracuja, milky, very fruity. Taste is nectarine, maracuja, purree, very fruity. Very purree-like viscous mouthfeel with medium carbonation. Fun!

jonas (8664) - Garching close to the monks, GERMANY - FEB 2, 2018
Milky/murky, keg not settled? Umami mealy aroma with peach marmalade. Thick viscous mouthfeel, sparky, fruit purée, like a Frucht nectar Schorle . the nectarines are nice, but the sponge cake feel is weird. Conflicted.

Draught @ MBCC '17 [ Red Session ]. - Mikkeller Beer Copenhagen Celebration 2017, Øksnehallen, Halmtorvet 11, 1700 København V, Danmark.

[ As De Garde Nectarine Premiere ].
Unclear medium orange colour with a average, frothy, good lacing, mostly lasting, white head. Aroma is light moderate malty, wheat, moderate yeasty, tart, nectarine, peach, apricot. Flavor is moderate to heavy sweet and light to moderate acidic with a long duration, tart nectarine, apricoy - peach, funky, dry. Body is medium, texture is oily to watery, carbonation is soft. Wow nice ;0) [20170513]

stchloe (1138) - Portland, Oregon, USA - NOV 21, 2017
Incredible and amazing, good aroma of nectarine, nice cloudy pour reminiscent of the fruit, the beer is nicely tart and dusty and dry and sour, and incredibly just like a nectarine, 10/10 would drink again.

radarsock (1223) - Massachusetts, USA - NOV 11, 2017
Slick, effervescent and stupid good - with friends like mine who needs to trade seriously? Picture a nectarine mimosa (nectarine juice, champagne, citrus seltzer), with which acid malt was thrown in for decent measure alongside a just-risen wheat sourdough. I keep sucking on it, and it expresses apricot skins, white tea, and pineapple. Pineapple is widely used in sourdough starters as a feeding sugar, which the analogy all the way back. Deliriously great.

Meilby (11833) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - OCT 16, 2017
Draught @ Mikkeller Beer Celebration Copenhagen 2017 - Red Session
Pours hazy deep golden with a white head. Aroma has notes of malt, citrus, tart, funk and orange. Taste is light sweet and medium sour with a long dry, citrus, tart, funk and orange finish. Body is medium, texture is thin to oily, carbonation is soft.
