Minderbinder (1964) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 18, 2012
Bottle 750ml. Pours hazy brown with very low beige head. Aroma is of sourness, acetic, lambic-style, malt, caramel. Taste sour, acetic, lambic-style, malt, fruits (raspberries), alcohol. Hot feeling in the back of the tongue. Overall: Nice balance, very good.

LtDan (1784) - Los Angeles County, California, USA - JUN 29, 2011
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.

gkost (1713) - Tampa, Florida, USA - APR 9, 2011
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.

Dfonorow (1581) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - APR 24, 2013
Hazy reddish/brown with a two-finger-wide off-white head. Fruit comes through the most on the nose with hints of cherries, ripe dates, oak chips, and vinegar. Flavor is a bit acidic with vinegar present throughout. Apple juice, plums, cherries, leather, funk.

HonusWagner (1534) - Florida, USA - OCT 19, 2012
Actually a fair bit worse than Marron Acidifie by my accounting, with a kind of weird fruity sweetness that takes away from the really solid Oude Bruin elements that the base beer has going. Tried on multiple occasions, both at CCB and from a bottle at Tower of Power Sour Hour 3: Sour with a Vengeance.

jzzbassman (1516) - New Albany, Mississippi, USA - MAR 31, 2013
Bottle tasted at Oxford Tasting Nov 2012. Pours a cloudy red orange with a small white head. Aroma of a fine balsamic vinegar, with red wine and oak. Light sourness on the flavor, oak, dark fruit, and caramel. Finishes nicely tart.

kbutler1 (1356) - Minnesota, USA - MAY 31, 2011
Bottle. Sampled a couple times at the Anniversary party. Poured a cloudy, chunky, murky, copper color with a slight tan head. Not the most appealing looking in a beer. At first I thought I just got the bottom of the bottle but I had it again and got the same type of pour. The aroma is caramel sweetness, slight nuttiness, vanilla, cherry, and lemon. Aroma also has sour notes. The taste is decent with some slight brett florals, lemon, cherry, nut, oak, vanilla, and ends slightly dry. Light mouthfeel. Overall, I wanted more out of this and having had this with The Wandered, Bottlewerks 12, and several other stellar beers, this one didn’t stand out to me.

pentaz (1242) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAR 17, 2013
Bottle. Pours opaque orange/brown with minimal head. Aroma is aged vinegar, leather, oak, caramel, dark fruit, toffee, fatty and funky fruit. Taste is medium sweet and sour. Body is medium, texture is light oily, carbonation is soft. Finishes light astringent, funky and sour.

JoeTheYounger (1148) - Lake Arrowhead, California, USA - MAR 18, 2012
1000th rating FINALLY! Poured from bottle at Reserve Society 2012 event at Phoenix Club. Poured a reddish murky color with a tan head. Aroma was dark fruits and vinegar notes. Taste was more oak than I remember in Marron Acidifie, but seemed a bit sweeter due to the dates and guava added. Really solid sour.

dreadnord (1013) - San Diego, California, USA - JAN 8, 2013
Pours amber brown with a small white head. Nose is vinegar, grapes, apples, lemons, brown sugar and spice. Taste is sweet mostly with some bitterness hints and some very earthy tartness on the end. Mouthfeel is crisp and clean, light body and a long finish.
