    Learned not to sit on any De Garde bottles. So cracked the recent batch? of Petite Peche. Very good! Signature tartness without over blowing it and lots of fruit. Peaches I presume ;)

    Rumours of this beer's demise have been greatly exaggerated. I cracked a B1 The Peach on Thanksgiving and it was great. The cognac had mostly faded but the peach flavor was delicious.

    Question about Lee Kriek batches. The b1 was a bottle that I recall having back in the summer of 2014 and enjoying but not being blown away with. Then on two different occasions in 2015 I had a bottle of Lee Kriek onsite at DG that was just insane. It tasted as if the ABV had been increased as well, although I could be mistaken. Trying to track down that bottle now and noticed there was an ABV difference between the two batches on untappd, but apparently the b1 was higher.

    Just trying to figure out how to identify the batches.

    b1 is 8.4 abv, and font is larger on label.

    This, and to further clarify, lower abv. for batch two as I recall. Glad you dug it. I liked #2 better as well, though we may be in the minority.

    That beer does not age well if you ask me.


    I think the darker berry beers that they make age like champions though.

    Anyone try The Numbers recently? I assume this should age well.

    To be fair I don't age anything. Refrigerator = cellar and wife yells at me when there are too many beers :)
