3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle 75 cl. Courtesy of anacrime. Pours a cloudy golden with a small, rough white head. Very tart and funky aroma. Medium body, lowish carbonation, a slight initial whiff of sweet fruit - I actually believe I can detect a little apricot - but soon a very dry and astringent tartness takes over. A subtle and pleasant touch of wood. Very enjoyable actually. A Bruery take on FouFoune? 250213

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle (750 ml). Shared by Julien, Pier-Luc and Benoît, thanks! Clear yellow/golden with a small white head. Aroma of peaches and apricots, fruits and woody notes. Taste is about the same with moderate sourness. Mouthfeel is clean and slightly dry. Absolutely not acetic by The Bruery standard (but still a little bit acetic by normal standard). Quite refreshing and drinkable.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Pale gold pour, white head. Aroma of peach/apricot, fruity, woody, distinct oak character. Taste is fruity, light, apricot, sweet with a nice sour bite, not too acetic. The Bruery makes really nice light sours, I wish they’d stop making that over boozy vinegar. This beer was actually quite pleasant and refreshing.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle courtesy of womencantsail (I think.) Thanks! Reviewed from notes.
A: Clear apricot color. No head and some bubbles randomly shoot upwards.
N: Apricots, mandarins, lemon, acetic acid. Has a sharp nuttiness in addition to the grass/straw elements which I attribute to the oak. Some funk.
T: Apricot, oranges, and sour lemon zest. Grainy wood. This is definitely souring up to a sharp point while the fruit declines. Not sure that’s a good thing. Acetic and lactic, but not unpleasant. Liked this better when it was fresh on tap. Grass, straw, no barnyard funk.
M: Light on the tongue. Think is this the most noteworthy aspect of the beer. Too many heavy sours.
O: Recommendable but it’s far better fresh. Will probably re-review when it’s released again.

23rd November 2012
THE Fruit Sour tasting. Very hazy orange beer, residual white head. Light palate, dry and crisp. Whisper of sulphur on the nose! Sour tart beer! White wine sourness with tart generic fruits. As with many fruits sours I am hard pressed to tell what the fruits are through the sourness. It’s okay.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle pour. Slightly hazy gold, with very little head, and no lacing. Aroma is belgian yeast, lactic sourness, light white stone fruit, slightly lemony. Taste falls a bit flat for me, but I have been spoiled by more jammy apricot sours of late. Fairly acidic, with a bit of a wood presence as well. Slightly thin/weak finish.
