COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION

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 (iím 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.

BMan1113VR (7867) - Los Angeles, California, USA - APR 1, 2011
Bottle. Rating 4800. Pours with a completely clear (first few pours) deep copper to burgundy body with a lasting tan head. Great lace. Aromas are huge and sour. Red wine is predominant. Pedio, dates, lacto, dark fruits, alcohol, vanilla and barrel abound. Flavors are huge! Dark fruits, dates, sour, rich, red wine, acidic, lacto, a hint of guava on the finish. Big, rich, delicious, raisins, barrel, vinous, vanilla and sour. Medium to lively bubbles, rich, sour and decadent. Really nice to drink. A pleasant sour: complex, layered, tasty!

Bottle. Much like the Marron Acidifie but smoother and a bit more funky. Lots of juicy fruit flavors.

From the bottle at the Bruery/Cigar City salon at SAVOR 2011. Served in a SAVOR goblet. Pours a fairly-clear tawny copper color with an average off-white head. Sparse lacing and a bit of a collar on the way down. The nose brings forward heavy amounts of fruit with a really, really strong guava presence that sets the tone for the whole beer. A bit of the date character is in the background. The flavor really takes it up to the next level as the guava and the acidity really pair quite well. Gone is much of the brown sugar from Marron Acidife; instead, this is all fruit with a bit of funk. Lingering sourness throughout and a slight oak presence. The guava and underlying acidity are a beautiful thing in the mouthfeel, producing a tart acidity thatís buoyed by a bit of oak. Slight funk in the finish as well. I am very, very much looking forward to having this again. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 06-04-2011

Brown pour, creamy tan head. Fruity, vinegar aroma with some nice oak and raisiny notes. Flavor is sour, but not overly, fruity, oaky, light vinegar. Damn nice.

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.

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.
