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.

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!

dcschiller (2207) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - AUG 23, 2011
(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.

DalzAle (2012) - 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.

HonusWagner (1872) - 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.

LtDan (1806) - 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.

Dfonorow (1748) - 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.

gkost (1710) - 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.

jzzbassman (1525) - Arlington, Texas, 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 (1377) - North Carolina, 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.
