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!

Best served in a tuilp or wine glass.

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.

Bottle shared at craft clerko. Thanks to Ken. Aroma is tart, raspberry, cherry, smokey, solvent. Hazed orange / pink coloured pour with a lasting loose pink greyish head. Flavour is composed of smokey, tart cherry, raspberry, semi sweet sour, crisp and clean. Palate is medium sweet and sour. Bit of toasted coconut lingers. Highish carbonation.

Leighton (17470) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 6, 2015
Bottle shared in London - thanks to Kenny. Pours murky red with a frothy, off-white head. Interesting aroma, some tart citrus, berries, wood, sweat. Medium sweet flavor with some apple sauce, tangy wood and berries, lemon rind, citric twang, decent acetic bite. Medium bodied with average carbonation. Lightly warming on the finish with some woody dryness, more acetic burn, leathery berries, toasted coconut, spicy wood. Novel.

Scopey (11555) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 6, 2015
Bottle, big thanks to Ken. It pours hazy red/dirty amber with a medium white head. The nose is rich, earthy, funk, wood, vanilla, toasty coconut, cherry, jam and blackberry. The taste is crisp, tart, sherbet, wood, jammy, cherry skin, raspberry, blackberry, granny smith apple, some acidity (but not too much) and wood, with a dry finish. Medium body and fine carbonation. Juicy and tart. One of Bruery’s best sours for sure.

Ughsmash (7504) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 29, 2014
750mL bottle. This lived up to its name, as the beer tried to escape after I opened it. The aroma picked up dusty cellar, sour cherries, and leather topped by light pie spices, more cherry, and assertive floral notes.. very interesting. The flavor found tart cherries and oak barrel on the tip of the tongue, with strong, slightly boozy vinous notes following.. cherry zest and red wine barrel laced throughout.. more tart than sour on the finish, and very dry. Medium-bodied with more filling carbonation than expected.. very tart and very dry overall.. good stuff.

kathouse (1508) - Nevada, USA - DEC 20, 2014
Cloudy brown with a thick, persistent foam. Aroma of brown sugars, light fruit, wood, and a touch of vanilla. Tart dark cherry blows up the taste buds and fades into smooth dark fruits. Love that this beer is not too sweet. Finish is flavorful and balanced.

tectactoe (3125) - Michigan, USA - NOV 28, 2014
Bottle: Muddy, dense, & slightly red-tinted copper, brown-ish body with a beige head that fizzles out to a small collar instantly. Aroma of mild tart, acidic cherry skins, berries, lemon flesh, lactic acid, mild yogurt, vinous oak, & a hint of booziness that shines through. Smells tart as hell. Tastes tart as hell. Acetic sourness, mild vinegar, lemon, lactic acid, cherry skin, vinous grapes, faint raspberry seediness. Sharp oak & dry, acidic finish with a mild acetic burn going down. A very nice sour for sourheads.

This poured an orange color with a white head. Aroma was of dark fruit skins and vinegar. Flavor was similar, teeth ripping ascetic acid, vinegar and fruit. Meh.
