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!

Sampled at the Reserve Society Celebration 2012. Pours a murky brown color. It is a richer version of M.A. though I think I like the brightness of that beer instead. The dates are strong in this beer and it dilutes the sour a bit too much for me.

(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.

Bottle from the brewery. I’ve been sitting on this one for a little while and since company came over I thought this would be the perfect beer to shock some people! I guess the first shocker was the self pouring bottle. She opens with a huge hiss and foams violently for a few seconds until the pressures equalize. Pours a slightly cloudy reddish brown color with a huge bubbly tan head that piles it high but recedes almost instantly. Initially I got lots of banana and tropical fruit but that seemed to quickly give way to more of a lemon and tart cherry thing on the nose. Earthy funk with a touch of yeastiness and wood round out the nose. The flavor still holds a bit of sweet brown sugary malt which is a bit surprising! The funky earthiness is more prevalent in the flavor and mixes well with the dates which add a bit of sweetness. Light tart tropical fruit with just a touch of wood and alcohol round everything out. Medium body with a moderate level of carbonation and a sweet tart lightly tongue pricking mouthfeel. Hugely interesting beer, that most of my guests couldn’t stomach. A little sweet for a sour, but I really enjoyed this beer.

Bottle. Reddish brown pour with no real head. Pleasant stone fruit and citrusy/woody aromas. Tart stone fruits, acidic citrus, and muddled earth/woody flavors.

DalzAle (1944) - Eden Prairie, Minnesota, USA - JUL 12, 2011
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.

teorn88 (1915) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 28, 2013
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.

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.

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.
