[Bottle] pours hazy rusty brown with a small dissipating head. Aroma is red fruit, moderate acetic, light oak, a bit of sweet malt, caramel. Flavor is lightly sour, a touch oily, moderate carbonation, light lactic, a touch sweet, but something just a little off. It just doesn’t taste ’clean’ if that makes sense.

Pours hazy reddish brown with little to no head, aroma has notes of sour cherry, lemon, with some notes of fruit, slight wood and nutty notes. Taste is nutty, earthy, fruity, very complex with notes of tart fruit and woody, with a tart dry finish. Delicious, a bit muddled but awesome.

LtDan (1743) - Los Angeles County, California, USA - JUN 29, 2011
Appearance: Pours a translucent dark red with no head to speak of.

Aroma: Tart cherry, alcohol, vinegar-like sourness and woody wine barrel.

Taste: Oak tannins, sour red fruits, some breadiness, tart cherry.

Mouthfeel: Astringent, medium bodied, with modest carbonation. No pulp, no seeds?

Overall: As solid as all of The Bruery’s sours. Not worth trading your children for if you can get your hands on Marron Acidifie.

750ml bottle from the Bruery. Hazy dark amber in color with a small off-white head. Nice aroma with some good sour fruits and leather. Fairly acetic. The flavor is pretty good, like a maltier variation of Oude Tart. Some figs and exotic fruit notes, leather, oak, guava, vinegar, and tart wild yeast notes. Medium body with mild acidity and average carbonation. Great stuff, worthy of the hype.

A: The pour is quite hazy and dark reddish-brown in color with a finger or two of off-white head. S: Like with Marron Acidifie, the acetic character is rather in check. Plenty of red fruits and particularly lots of red wine aroma. Nice oak and a touch of leather and chocolate. The fruits don’t come through too much, but there is a bit of the guava. T: A light caramel sweetness to it with just a hint of dates and plums. Red wine, red wine vinegar, and some tart guava. A nice oakiness to it and a little bit of tannins, maybe some leathery funk. M: Medium in body with a medium carbonation. O: Not sure if I liked this or Marron better. Very good either way.

Big thanks to Sean for this... A semi clear light brown, light tope head... The nose is acidic vinegar, a hint of cherries, pretty complex... The taste is boring, vinegar, tart cherries, very oaky finish... Not bad

Pour from the bottle. Brown burgundy in color with slight transparency. Tart fruity aromas with maybe a touch of guava. Medium bodied and smooth on your mouth. Flavors were of cherry, apple, and plum but nothing too long lasting though. Not bad but was expecting a bit more. Prefer Marron to be honest.

From the bottle at the Bruery/Cigar City salon at SAVOR 2011. Served in a SAVOR goblet. Pours a fairly-clear tawny copper color with an average off-white head. Sparse lacing and a bit of a collar on the way down. The nose brings forward heavy amounts of fruit with a really, really strong guava presence that sets the tone for the whole beer. A bit of the date character is in the background. The flavor really takes it up to the next level as the guava and the acidity really pair quite well. Gone is much of the brown sugar from Marron Acidife; instead, this is all fruit with a bit of funk. Lingering sourness throughout and a slight oak presence. The guava and underlying acidity are a beautiful thing in the mouthfeel, producing a tart acidity that’s buoyed by a bit of oak. Slight funk in the finish as well. I am very, very much looking forward to having this again. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 06-04-2011

Sample from bottle at the anniversary party. Hazy reddish amber pour, with light tannish head. Predominately fruit flavor, Guava, cherry, berries, light notes of date, oak, vinegar, lemon, and acidic sourness. Sweeter then the marron. It’s good, but I was hoping for more.

Bottle. Sampled a couple times at the Anniversary party. Poured a cloudy, chunky, murky, copper color with a slight tan head. Not the most appealing looking in a beer. At first I thought I just got the bottom of the bottle but I had it again and got the same type of pour. The aroma is caramel sweetness, slight nuttiness, vanilla, cherry, and lemon. Aroma also has sour notes. The taste is decent with some slight brett florals, lemon, cherry, nut, oak, vanilla, and ends slightly dry. Light mouthfeel. Overall, I wanted more out of this and having had this with The Wandered, Bottlewerks 12, and several other stellar beers, this one didn’t stand out to me.
