750 ml bottle shared by jckp64 at DLD 2013- thanks again, John! Pours a hazed muddy amber color with no head. Notes of plums, apples, berries, grapes, oak, caramel, brown sugar, oaky funk, and balsamic. Medium-bodied, with low to moderate carbonation and a funky, fruity mouthfeel. Some mellow spice, as well. Good sour.

Scopey (6238) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 25, 2013
Bottle shared at my birthday drinks. It pours murky deep brown with a small beige head. The nose is malt vinegar, date, prune, lemon, oak, vanilla and toasted coconut. The taste is tangy fruit...cherry, date, raisin, grape, earth, moderate acidity, some alcohol, wood, balsamic vinegar and lemonade with a dry, tangy finish. Medium body and fine, prickly carbonation. Definitely smells like a Bruery sour for sure! Rather tasty stuff.

ACHops (650) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JUL 18, 2013
Bottle @ The Bruery. Pours cloudy orangish brown with thin head. Aroma is big tart sourness with a hint of fruitiness. Taste is clean brown malt, big citrusy sourness, and oaky dry finish. Big notes of grapefruit and mango. A bit thin bodied, but very nice.

dchmela (2610) - 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.

JohnnyJ (4254) - San Diego, California, USA - MAY 31, 2011
Sample from bottle at the anniversary party. Hazy reddish amber pour, with light tannish head. Predominately fruit flavor, Guava, cherry, berries, light notes of date, oak, vinegar, lemon, and acidic sourness. Sweeter then the marron. It’s good, but I was hoping for more.

nightrider (754) - encinitas, California, USA - JUN 4, 2011
Pour from the bottle. Brown burgundy in color with slight transparency. Tart fruity aromas with maybe a touch of guava. Medium bodied and smooth on your mouth. Flavors were of cherry, apple, and plum but nothing too long lasting though. Not bad but was expecting a bit more. Prefer Marron to be honest.

750ml bottle from the Bruery. Hazy dark amber in color with a small off-white head. Nice aroma with some good sour fruits and leather. Fairly acetic. The flavor is pretty good, like a maltier variation of Oude Tart. Some figs and exotic fruit notes, leather, oak, guava, vinegar, and tart wild yeast notes. Medium body with mild acidity and average carbonation. Great stuff, worthy of the hype.

arminjewell (6067) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - JUL 10, 2011
Pours hazy reddish brown with little to no head, aroma has notes of sour cherry, lemon, with some notes of fruit, slight wood and nutty notes. Taste is nutty, earthy, fruity, very complex with notes of tart fruit and woody, with a tart dry finish. Delicious, a bit muddled but awesome.

RB1 (117) - Gilbert, Arizona, USA - SEP 3, 2011
750ml bottle. Pours an amber color with smallish tan head, which soon gives way to a ring. Aroma is dark fruit up front, with honey and vinegar. Also some funk going on. Taste is slightly tart, but smooth with dark fruit (raisins), and candy sugar. Finish is bitter, tart and refreshing.

Ibrew2or3 (6779) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - SEP 4, 2011
Pours hazy copper with a tiny white head. The aroma has tartness riding over the top of apricots, red apples, earthy wood like notes and some acidity. The taste delivers up tartness and then moves toward thick sourness and then soured citrus. Behind those notes is a persistent acidity. Too acidic for me.
