Wandering into a serendipitous meeting in Boonville led to the forging of a relationship between City Beer Store and The Bruery and a beer collaboration worth celebrating. Cheers to five years! Suitable for aging up to five years if cellared around 55F (13C). Ideal serving temperature is 50F (10C). Please pour carefully, leaving the sediment behind in the bottle. Best served in a tuilp or wine glass.

2013 bottle. Muddy brownish copper pour with a huge foamy pour that fades to a thick ring. Aroma is funky cherry skins, huge vinegar, oak, and berries. Moderate to strong sour taste and a very big tartness. Packed with vinegar, cherry skins, and tart blackberries. Intense and hard to drink. Very acidic. Sorta fun to drink but it’s way to extreme for me to love.

2013 bottle. Super tasty. I believe this is a blend of Oude Tart and Bruery’s Anniversary ale with maybe one more component. Drinks mostly like Oude Tart with a bonus big malty touch and extra fruit. Oak, fruit, sweet malt. Solidly tart finish. Pretty different and very good.

Bottle at RBWG gt. Nose is dried cherry and pie crust. Light chest burn acidity. Very enjoyable. Still has a nice malt character.

750ml bottle, big thanks to alexsdad06 for donating to the share. Labeled 8.2%. Bottle was a slow gusher (my favorite kind of gusher -- nothing wasted). Totally hazy brown red color, sort of a brick color. Ring of off-white head. Medium to bigger body. Smooth, kind of soft, lighter carbonation. Lightly slick. Satisfyingly bigger sour taste, lighter sweet, mild dry finish. Awesome big blackberry, some chocolate, mild cherry, oakiness. Love it. Fantastic sour ale. A great one to sip, sip, sip.

750 ml to taster (shared by alexsdad06). Looks good; a cloudy amberish caramel with fizzy light caramel head that steadily dissipates into lacing. Smells and tastes tart and lactic with a nice dark berry presence. Tastes like it smells with a pleasantly lively medium-bodied mouthfeel. Good beer.

Tasting at Craft Clerkenwell. Hazy reddish brown beer, small peach - pink colour head. Palate is light, dry and crisp. Starts with a burst of sharp sourness, cherry and a little lemon acid. Nice balancing toasted coconut comes in and then a little balsamic. Finishes crisp. Pretty tart and fruity but the coconut really helps to smooth it out.
