tectactoe (3125) - Michigan, USA - JAN 3, 2015
Bottle: Woody, mahogany color, semi-clear with some haze to it. Ecru cap fades in a couple seconds to a quick collar. Aroma of semi-vinous grape, cherry skins, prunes, moderately acidic lemon, light bourbon soaked woodiness, tannic oak, & some very faint perfume. Flavor has some more red wine-esque vinous notes with lots of boozy soaked oak, cherry, lemon, mild vanilla, & a touch of cola. Hints of oak, prunes, raisins, toasted malt, red grapes, & some mild bourbon-ish hints towards the finish. Not getting guava but itís got a strong fruity essence throughout. Finishes pretty acidic, gurgling in my belly. Hint of cotton. Mouth feel is oily yet dry. Not bad, the 9% ABV definitely comes through.

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 isnít 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.

BOLTZ7555 (3014) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - SEP 3, 2011
Believe this was shared by dcschiller @ Dakís Cantillon Tasting...if so, thanks Dave!!! Bright copper/crimson colored hue with a small eggshell head that left a spot of lacing. Literally, a spot. Both nose and flavor show tons of balsamic vinegar, dark fruit, caramel, toffee, brown sugar, tart cherry skins, and oak. Medium mouthfeel with a solid amount of carbonation.

dchmela (3010) - Orlando, Florida, USA - APR 27, 2011
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.

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.

Phone rate. 750mL, thanks Jay. Hazy brown small beige, down to a ring. Some acetic notes, not terribly fruity. A little leathery, earthy old wood and mod bitterness in the finish, some ETOH heat. Sourness 4. Med full body, light carbonation. OK.

wedgie9 (2633) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - DEC 28, 2014
From (very old) notes. Tasted on 8/24/11 from a capped 750mL bottle , big thanks to Kan for sharing. Pours a slightly hazy deep red with a very thin pink tinted tan head that slowly recedes to spotty lace with a decent collar that sticks around. The nose is lightly sour with some barnyard earthy funk, oaky vanilla and cinnamon notes, along with some prune, molasses, brown sugar, and a bit of red wine vinegar. The flavor is tart with red wine vinegar and sour cherry, dark date, raisin, molasses, with the barnyard funk and light notes of oak underlying. The body is medium with light carbonation and a long tart red wine vinegar and tannic finish.

Bottle shared at Tower of Sour Power. Iíve been looking forward to trying this since I had Marron Acidifie. Was there much of a difference? Honestly not really. This had that sour mustard type smell along with a sour tart flavor. I like them both donít get me wrong.
