3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
6th January 2015
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.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
A: The pour is a rather familiar hazy dark amber color with a small khaki head.
S: Somewhat acetic with a big time berry and fruit aroma. The blackberries really stand out, but there is a nice cherry undertone to it as well. A mild malt character that makes the beer sort of reminiscent of an Oud Bruin.
T: A nice hit of blackberry and cherry up front, as well as some other dark fruits. Mildly acetic, but overall nicely tart. Plenty of oak and perhaps even some red wine flavor.
M: Medium in body with a medium carbonation, though maybe it could have used a bit more.
O: A nice beer. Not amazing, but another example of the Bruery sours getting better.

On tap at City Beer, pours a cloudy dark amber / burgundy with a medium tan head. Aroma brings out blackberries, cherries and prune - and some bourbon. Flavour brings out intense fruitiness, featuring notes of blackberries, cherries and prunes, with ample tartness, oak and wood. Extremely complex and well-balanced, with a very fruity and wood body. One of the Bruery’s better sours.
