3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Pours hazy amber red, small fizzy off-white head that dissipates pretty quickly with out much lacing left behind. Aroma is light overall, fruity, some acetone, light funk. Flavor is quite acidic, tart, some raspberry and other fruit, a mineral water feel along with a biting tartness and acetone which does die off a little as the beer breathes and I get used to it. Medium body, low carbonation. Not one of their best.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle shared by Douglas. Thanks!
A: Cloudy red with a thin off-white head.
N: Raspberry, cherry, rhubarb, even a hint of blackberry underneath. Grapefruit rind and oak. Some red licorice and green apple; vinegar.
T: Tart and lightly sweet.
M: Light body, crisp carbonation, alcohol does scratch the tongue.
O: Nice sour. The raspberry and rhubarb take center stage here, though I wouldn’t quite compare this to pie. And since it’s the Bruery, it has their usual sharpness which, in this case, really ought to have been rounded off, I believe.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
One of the few Bruery sours that sets itself apart. The differentiating quality is that the fruit comes through strong even though the tartness is dialed up. Nice clean finish.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
(Bottled August 15, 2013) Bomber to tulip. Pours a dark, leathery red with a thin, light brown head. Aroma is acidic, with faint berry notes and a tart, lemony finish. Taste is sour, acidic, with lemon, berry, and tart rhubarb. For some reason this beer feels strangely chalk to me.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Murky reddish brown pour with almost no head. Great aroma. Raspberry and rhubarb pie filling, light brett, light oak, and red wine vinegar. Taste is moderately sour. Pretty intense stuff. Lots of vinegar, acid, berries, rhubarb, and red wine. Very solid but it might be hard to finish a full glass.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: MAY 15, 2015 Bottle: Thanks, Jason. Mahogany hazy pour with a quick fading beige head. Gone in moments. Aroma of red apple, raspberry, strawberry, & some mild lemon acidity. Flavor has notes of cherry skin, apple, strawberry, a hint of cherry, & some faint acidic lemon in the back-end. A touch of woody, tannic vinousness to finish things off. Acidity grows with time. Nice stuff.
