3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

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.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

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!

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle shared at my birthday drinks. It pours murky deep brown with a small beige head. The nose is malt vinegar, date, prune, lemon, oak, vanilla and toasted coconut. The taste is tangy fruit...cherry, date, raisin, grape, earth, moderate acidity, some alcohol, wood, balsamic vinegar and lemonade with a dry, tangy finish. Medium body and fine, prickly carbonation. Definitely smells like a Bruery sour for sure! Rather tasty stuff.

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.
