Bottle. Much like the Marron Acidifie but smoother and a bit more funky. Lots of juicy fruit flavors.

Good beer. It was a nice sour with fruit notes coming through. It is a very well balanced beer. The sourness was countered very well by the fruit and carbonation

750 mL bottle shared by a friend. Pours murky deep orange-brown with a tan head. Nose smells of of malt, balsamic vinegar, cranberry, leather, guava, funk, and some earthy fruit (maybe the dates?). Flavor is similar with the oud bruin coming through and a definite guava presence, with funk and vinegar lingering on the periphery. Medium to full-bodied and enjoyable. Well-hidden booze for a 9% sour.

UPDATED: MAY 14, 2011 750ml bottle This beer pours an opaque copper color with a quickly disappearing head. Itís lightly bodied and the flavor is sour/tart with notes of sour fruit.

Thanks to Redlight for cracking this bottle (or, i should say, gushing as it spewed all over the place). Pours a deep brown and really chunky. Very floral hop aroma, lots of tart sour fruit in the aroma. Taste is smooth malt, slightly tart, fruity guava and a tart of oak. Finishes with a touch of tartness.

Bottle @ Clusterfork #3. Pour is cloudy and bubbly. Nose is tart. Taste is tart, funky and ruddy. Nice, decent.

750 ml gusher. Tart fruit on the nose, guava, and oak. Pours very muddy with fruit solids in the glass, pours an amber red. Nice tartness upfront with the dates blending nicely with the oak the guave and funky tartness working great. Pours ugly but tastes great!

gkost (1714) - Tampa, Florida, USA - APR 9, 2011
Pours deep brown with ruby hints. Nose is sweet fruits, raisin, lactic acid, sour fruits, cherries, fruit skins, hints of cocoa and caramel. Flavor is sharp acid melded with sour fruits. Nice subtle raisin and tropical fruit notes. Beer was chunky with fruit parts (iím guessing). All around a fruitier version of Marron Acidifie. The sweetness cuts down the acid a bit. At first I thought Marron was better, but after trying it again at the CCB/Bruery party I changed my mine. This is a more balanced beer with the sweet guava/dates.

Pours a murky orange with lots of guava sediment in the brew. Aroma is lots apple, cherry, acidy. You get alot more guava in the taste. Sour apples. Palate is good with medium mouthfeel. Acidy. Overall a pretty good brew.

BMan1113VR (7787) - Los Angeles, California, USA - APR 1, 2011
Bottle. Rating 4800. Pours with a completely clear (first few pours) deep copper to burgundy body with a lasting tan head. Great lace. Aromas are huge and sour. Red wine is predominant. Pedio, dates, lacto, dark fruits, alcohol, vanilla and barrel abound. Flavors are huge! Dark fruits, dates, sour, rich, red wine, acidic, lacto, a hint of guava on the finish. Big, rich, delicious, raisins, barrel, vinous, vanilla and sour. Medium to lively bubbles, rich, sour and decadent. Really nice to drink. A pleasant sour: complex, layered, tasty!
