3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle... Cloudy light brown ale with no head. The aroma is fruity and malty; chock-full-of caramel and sour cherries. Full-bodied with a buttery mouthfeel and tickling carbonation. The flavor is funky, yeasty and sour and loaded with caramel and dark cherries. Finishes tangy and fairly dry. Bottle courtesy of 50belair!

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
750mL at SDBW kickoff bottle share. Pours a low haze, deeper red/brown. Nose is cranberry, mild acetic, heavy tamarind, caramel. Essentially the same as Marron Acidifie. Taste is pretty much Marron Acidifie as well- spicy tamarind, cranberry, chocolate, some stale caramel candy. Woody, stale palate. Whatever was added to this one, guavas I think, is long gone.

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!

2013-08-17. Hazy red brown body is headless. Aroma is mild, with notes of lactic sourness, it is a bit muddled. Flavour is modestly sour with a lactic quality to it throughout, and it gets a touch sharp at times. Sour cherry like acidity. Average bodied palate, modest carbonation. It is not unpleasant but I find it just never quite comes into it’s own. Bottle at Campground Brewdown.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle that I took to Andy’s for Paul’s birthday and Joey’s going away (and hopefully coming back at some point) tasting. Pours a hazed ruby and copper amber with a slight white head. Mango, papaya, and sweet fruit, acid and wood. Apparently I should be smelling and tasting dates here as well. Don’t really get that. Woody, soft acid, wood and fruit. Lightly acidic, fruit and wood. Lingering acid, woody, acid. Tasty.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours hazy copper with a tiny white head. The aroma has tartness riding over the top of apricots, red apples, earthy wood like notes and some acidity. The taste delivers up tartness and then moves toward thick sourness and then soured citrus. Behind those notes is a persistent acidity. Too acidic for me.
