Garrold (5941) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - FEB 2, 2018
Bottle, picked up at the Pilcrow, Manchester. Ribena red. Ring of dense, pale pink head. Nose has twangy red fruit. Light, sweet oak. Bit of a cherry lips sweets thing. Red grape skin. Taste is dry, tart, and has a little fruity sweetness on the lips. Drying on the palate. Foamy carbonation. (This was a slow gusher on opening). Dry and lightly tart finish. Nice, but given the Imperial Raz Bu I had recently, this was a slight let down.

SinH4 (6909) - Garching b. München, GERMANY - SEP 20, 2017
Bottle, rating #5500. Hazy reddish color with white head. Aroma is yoghurt, earthy, leathery, red wine grapes, barrel. Taste is tannic, barrel, woody, leathery, a touch yoghurt. High carbonation, unfortunately. After stirring the carbonation out, I gave a 4 in palate - so without that, but would be a 4.1

Bottle @ Pre-Borefts tasting. Hazy red color, average sized off-white head. Aroma is red fruits, tart, citruspeel. Tastes about the same: red fruits, tart, grapes, oak lightly. Quite nice this one. One of the best I've had from De Garde I think.
