S: Aromas of cherry syrup, wood, hints of under ripe strawberries, and light acid.
T: Light acid up front with many flavors found in the aroma. Under ripe strawberry tartness with hints of sweet cherry juice. Nice sweet and tart thing going on. The tartness is rather mild though.

This was very kindly brought along to Pre ZBF on March 5th 2010 by Madmitch76, cheers for this Ken. Pours cloudy amber/almost a bit orangey. What a stunning aroma, wonderfully woody, lactic and with some old quality wine, not that I would necessarily know a quality wine from a bottle of ’plonk de plonk’. Tart, fruity, and that wine like quality show again, lovely sourness, a cracker, cheers again Ken. A9 A3 F8 P4 Ov17 4.1

Avery Sour Ale Fest. Still haven’t figured out The Bruery... Well done with this one. Very tart. Sour cherries throughout, which was awesome, with some cool earthiness in the finish. Nice brew.

Thanks to ucusty for sharing this at the Pre-Sex madness. Faintly cloudy amber pour, moderately carbonated. Soft and relatively complex wood notes blend with tart fruit notes and that nice lactic quality that the Bruery gets into its Berliner. Not as acetic as I’d expected, but a nice mature version of the style that has some depth to it. Wish I could grab a few bottles to age.

Hazy amber color, no head. Some moderate lacing. Aroma is nice, sweet, sour, some cherry candy and other fruit. Peach and strawberry. Light even with all this going on. Flavor is sweet, smooth, rich, tart and fruity. Nice and drinkable, not overly sour. Clean with rich juicy fruit. Dries out nicely with some faint brett funk to add to the sourness. Nice.

Cherry and strawberry aroma. Cloudy ochre, medium yellow head. Strawberry and sour cherry flavor, finishing in fresh barely ripe strawberries. Fantastic take on the style. This may be my favorite from The Bruery.
