UPDATED: DEC 14, 2013 Smells of some vinous sour, oak and dark fruit, maybe a bit of a cherry aroma. Vinous prob 8 out of 10. Very sour, but lots of balance and complexity in the flavors. Many flavors balance the sour but no real sweet sugary taste. Oak, fruit, even get a bit of vanilla flavor from the oak. Great beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

On tap at The Bruery's new tasting room. This was the aged one from 2009. Consecration's got some competition from the south. Garnet color with champagne-esque fizz, fatastic tart flavor with lots of vinegar to it.

Reddish pour. Off white head. Aroma is loaded with cherries, wood, vinegar, berries, cheese and more. Flavor is fruity and tart but not crazy sour. Cherries, red wine, vinegar, oak. This is a great example of the style. Delicious.

Really really good. Mouth puckeringly sour over the standard Flemish red ale. Balanced and delicious. Stoked to have finally got my hands on a Bruery Sour

Dark brown, slightly reddish color and pours with a thick tan head. A thin layer of foam remains on top until the last drop. The aroma shows fresh cherries, funky oak, wild berries and plums. Very enjoyable brew. Crisp and refreshing while still packing a nice sour punch. Not intense at all or massively tart but very well balanced. A tasty mix of flavors; grapes, green apple, oak, cherry, a bit of funk, mild vinegar. Great stuff. Love the drinkability. I really didn’t think it was going to be this good.

I finally got to try this. It is worthy of it’s awards. There are tart, sour and vinegar like. This one is big on the vinegar. You can really taste the wine and the barrel. Very earthy and woody. Tastes young and sharp.

Right off the bat, there’s an awesome combination of both tart cherry and sweet and spicy black cherry. This is followed by a lot of the stuff mentioned above. Leather, green apple, vinegar, and oak are joined by tart red grape, spices, tangy berry, and bitter citrus. Floating underneath all of this is a layer of sweetness that binds and compliments everything happening here

Smells clean, very sour smell. Cranberries.
Tight off white head stays present around the sides.
Very sour! Clean and fruity start with a sour kick to the side of the tongue. Crisp. Funky. Leather. Sour.
A really good sour beer.

750 mL bottle courtesy of Bankhead on 6/13/10. Thanks! Pours a hazy rust color with a medium sized head and lots of visible carbonation. Good head retention and lacing. Very nice aroma with tart fruity notes including grapes and cherries, caramel, vanilla, oak and earthy notes. The taste is tart almost vinegar like notes, dry red grapes, berries, melon, earthy almost vegetal notes, a bit of oak with a very faint tinge of vanilla. Well balanced and smooth. Medium bodied. Excellent beer.
