de Garde The Peach b1: Yep, this is the original batch with cognac barrels. I heard that this beer has gone over the hill and I’m afraid that is the correct situation. While very tasty, this beer has gotten a little acetic. The huge cognac finish more than makes up for that, but this beer was probably in its prime a few months ago. Oh well, I know where my last bottle can go where it will be very appreciated.
