Batch 1 - 9.0% abv
Batch 2 - 9.5% abv

Bruery Description:
Mélange #1 was the first in our line of barrel aged beer blends and continues to be one of our favorites. A curious blend of our bourbon barrel aged stout, Black Tuesday, along with our Flemish-style sour red ale, Oude Tart, this beer is unique and delightful. Forging flavors of toasty oak, vanilla and toffee along with notes of leather and dark fruit, both the full bodied essence of the bourbon barrel aged ale and the sour quality of our wild ale are present in this well rounded beer.

Haslinger (865) - The World of Beer, Texas, USA - NOV 5, 2013
750mL bottle, thanks kegbear. Very acidic smell with some fruit in the initial taste but is covered up a bit at first by the biting tartness. Fades and actually tastes pretty good. It could use more Black Tuesday and less Oude Tart.

tom10101 (3074) - Quebec, CANADA - OCT 29, 2013
Bottle (750 ml). Shared by Pier-Luc and Julien, thanks! Very dark amber with a small fully lasting beige head and little lacing. Aroma is acetic with roasted malt, berries, bourbon and oak. Taste is slightly sweet and moderately acetic (almost heavily acidic, but not as much as most Bruery Sours) with bourbon,oak, fruits and roasted malt. Some alcohol. Medium body. Moderate carbonation. Slightly mouth puckering. Weird melange, but better than expected. Nice fruitiness.

czar (4679) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 29, 2013
pours dark brown reddish with a small light beige cap, some retention and lacing. red fruitiness, ketchup, bourbon, red fruit and roasted acidity, spices, pepper, nice oaky notes, linear acetic though. moderate carbonation, light to medium body - oily, sweet grassy-earthy, slightly astringent and acetic finish. tad too much on the acetic side but still enjoyable.

Minderbinder (2004) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 28, 2013
Bottle 750ml. Pours dark brown with low beige head. Some lacing. Aroma is of berries, bourbon. Taste is of fruits. Acid is almost ruining it all. Palate: Medium body. Overall: Actually better than expected. Clearly too acidic, but not gross as some other Bruery beers.

JulienHuxley (3459) - Hilversum, NETHERLANDS - OCT 27, 2013
Bottle. Dark brown black pour with white head. Acetic roasty aroma, really vinegared, fruity ketchup notes. Taste is quite sour, very acetic, mild roasty notes, quite sweet.. Palate is heavy with aggressive carbonation. Attacks the tongue.

Blairgus (2728) - California, USA - SEP 6, 2013
5 sept 2013, bottle. Dark brown. Nose is awesome. It goes from some balsamic to some big Black Tuesday chocolate. Thin body and moderately fizzy. Cold, the oude tart kind if dominates. As it warns up the Black Tuesday comes out more. Smells great. Can't decide how I like it though. Definitely good. Melange 3 is amazing though. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Chipalsa (1310) - Florida, USA - JUL 25, 2013
This was a pretty good brew overall, lots of funk and tart citrus fruits all about. It wasn’t all that complex, and that’s what made it so enjoyable. I basically got sour gusher fruit chews with some light chocolate and pencil... Unusual but in liquid form... great!!!

OmegaX (1283) - Florida, USA - JUL 24, 2013
Another great Melange brew from The Bruery. Nose is big cherry notes, funk, oak, sweet malt, citrus. Flavor is very tart, vinegar, cherry, and tons of oaked notes. Awesome stuff.

It’s easy to grin
when your ship comes in
and you’ve got the stock market beat.
But the man worthwhile
is the man who can smile
when his shorts are too tight in the seat

hopscotch (9509) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - DEC 25, 2012
Bottle... This beer rocks!… Pours clear, dark and Longhorn-orange with a small, creamy, mushroom-colored head. Fantastic retention - never dissipates. The aroma is fruity, roasty, malty and acidic; featuring cherries and purple grapes with undercurrents of chocolate and espresso. Full-bodied with moderate carbonation. The flavor is quite tart, vinous and roasty; flanked by delicate notes of vanilla and milk chocolate. Finishes tangy and lightly roasty. A big tip of the cap to 50belair for sharing this baby with the south Florida crew!
