Sweet bejeebus how could anyone not give this the maximum number of stars. Granted I’m sitting here at Monks Kettle in SF late night and maybe not giving things enough time to sink in for a properly grumpy perspective, but from my bar stool perch this is a near perfect sour. If you like sours you’ll absolutely love this beer. If you don’t know about sours youll be a little shocked, and by sip 5 you’ll absolutely love this beer. If you don’t like sours, don’t drink this beer. Typing as someone who loves and seeks out sours, this is way up there with Consecration or Supplication. Let’s call it Desecration and call it a day. As with all good sours it’s rating by me starts at 18 of 20 and goes up rapidly from there. And thus I sternly pronounce this a 20 of 20.

On draft at Bruery Provisions. Clear reddish pour with off-white creamy head. Aroma was funky leather, balsamic vinegar, oak, cherries and blue cheese. Taste was perfect amount of sourness with some wild fruits, vinegar, red, wine, oak. Great body. Overall an amazing beer. One of the best sours i’ve had from The Bruery. Well done!

Bottle. Been saving this for some time, and figured the beginning of football season was a reason to pop the top. Dark brown with a thin impression and little head, this ends up being a prototypical example of an Oud Bruin ... sweet and sour at the same time, with notes of cherry and, indeed as the label suggest, leather ... not for the amateur, weekend taster. Definitely an acquired taste, but produced with exceptional finesse and style. Well done!! (#4247, 9/10/2011)

UPDATED: MAR 1, 2013 Rbwg! Hazy mahogany white head. Particles floating. Sour red fruit cherry raspberry wood leather vinegar. Great aroma. extra vinegar and cherry. Almost tastes like angostura bitters. Wow this beer has gotten better.

750ml poured into a tulip glass. AROMA: Vinegar, berries, vanilla, funky, sour, and leather. APPEARANCE: Cloudy dark brownish color, when held to the light there are shades of red. Minimal head, some bubbles. TASTE: There is a lot going on here. But it works real well. Cranberry, vinegar, sour cherries, oak, and vanilla. PALATE: Medium body, balanced, creamy texture, some carbonation, finishes tart and dry with an slight oak taste. OVERALL: This is a great beer! Previous experience with Cigar City sours has not been the greatest and this is the first sour I’ve had from The Bruery. These two breweries teamed up to make a fantastic beer.

Bottle. Pours a fizzy brown with sticky head. Smell is sticky. Taste is hauntingly Consecrationish. Sour, tart, clean finish.

medicinal earthy leavey sour aroma, paired with a ice chocolatey malt as well slight cranberry as well appearance is a brown with a deep ruby red around the edges, first taste is sour then goes to a sweet chocolate malt then goes back to the sour and finishes, killer beer very similiar to a la folie, but this beer also holds some cranberry and fruity flavors as well, and the finish you can really taste the aged balsalmic, that adds a whole new deminsion to the sour taste
