3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle shared by craytonic. Thanks Matt!
The beer is slightly hazy and appears orange to red in color. The aroma offers a strong lactic and acetic presence with some mildly sweet fruit. Smells like a fruity Flanders ale. The flavor is sour and funky, with some lingering notes of cherries. Moderate carbonation with a funky acetic finish. The feel is a bit rough. A good beer, but not great, I would have this again.

(750ml bottle). Pours a hazy caramel/red color with an off-white head. Aroma is vinegar/funk, fruity and very belgian like. Taste is sweet with sour fruit. Medium bodied with an oily texture. Finish is dry with wood notes. Really nice beer.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle (750 ml)! Thanks to jp7161! Hazy light brown with a small off-white head and some lacing. Aroma of red fruits (raspberries?), red wine and acidic sourness. Taste is acidic with malt, red fruits, red wine, wood, dates, spices and peppery notes. Mouthfeel is dry. Alcohol is present. Pleasant sour and fun to drink because it’s quite complex.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
75cl bottle at CBC Clerkenwell, thanks to Paul! 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 from Reserve Society membership. Hazy dark brown pour, very little carbonation and a light lemon/apricot aroma. Flavor malt, dark creamy fruit and finished mildly tart. Interesting and unique, worth getting a bottle if you can.

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

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
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 (i’m 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.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Poured into my bruery tulip. Pours a hazy amber brown with decent carbonation and a paper thin head. Aroma is of oak, tropica fruits and red wine. Taste follows the nose, sweet and sour tastes, acidic but not too much, the oak is there but not in your face. I tried this at the 100 bottle release from ccb and the fruit was more present then. This has aged into a sweeter marron acidife Which isn’t a bad thing by any means just different from the fresh. Mouth feel is smooth despite the pucker and acidity. Overall this is one amazing sour that I am glad I kept for myself. I would be the first in line if this was ever released again.
