Marble From The Wood Brett IPA
Bomber - pours a clear light amber with a thin off white head that dissipates. Well balanced aroma of sour brett and citrus hops notes. Delicious and delicate flavors like sourdough, citrus peel, a nutty butteriness and a grapefruity zestiness. Quite nice

Marble Red Ale
Type: 12-oz. bottle Glass: Clear 8-oz. tumbler glass From: Trader Joe’s in (Uptown) Albuquerque, N.M. Price: $1.42 Purchased: May 6, 2016 Consumed: May 6, 2016 Misc.: Born on April 9, 2016 at 12:49 p.m. MT Looking forward to this one after seeing the overall rating on Beer Advocate about two minutes before writing this. Bought this basically because it’s Marble and I haven’t tried this one yet. Nice to not always have IPAs. Poured an auburn, clear color with two fingers of frothy, khaki head. Rather serene setting underneath the head. Very good lacing. Excellent retention. (Sight - 4.25) Very nice on the smell, getting a great mix of malts and hops. Specifically getting caramel, toasted malts, buttery malts (but not overwhelming which I hate), Mosaic, spicy, dry Chinook, rye, iced tea, spoiled vegetables and light garbage. (Smell - 4.00) Taste wasn’t quite as good as the nose, but decent. Getting toasted malts, buttery caramel malts, dry rye hops, Mosaic, spicy Chinook, sweetened iced tea, spoiled green beans, hints of tropical notes, mainly passion fruit, bitter pine and some woody Nugget. (Taste - 3.75) Medium body. Creamy texture. Average carbonation. Abrupt, toasty finish. (Feel - 3.75) This one had its moments, but couldn’t pull the trigger on higher ratings. Might have underrated the smell a tad. Decent beer though. (Overall - 3.75) 3.84 86 B+

Marble Pilsner
Type: 12-oz. can Glass: Clear 8-oz. tumbler glass From: Trader Joe’s in (Uptown) Albuquerque, N.M. Price: $1.42 Purchased: May 6, 2016 Consumed: May 6, 2016 Misc.: Born on March 4, 2016 at 1:52 p.m. MT Have been on a bit of a pilsner kick lately and really excited for Marble’s version. Hoping it lives up to my high expectations. Poured a golden, yellow, clear color with four fingers of uneven, white, rocky head. Lots of bubbles coming up from the bottom of the glass, reminding me a bit of a snow globe. Excellent lacing. Excellent retention. (Sight - 4.50) More maltier on the nose than I would have thought. Got urine, corn, honey, Kix cereal, pine, citrus zest, lemon sweetened iced tea, herbal grassy notes and hints of vegetables. Very interesting. (Smell - 3.50) Taste followed the nose almost to a T. Got lemon sweetened iced tea, corn, very dry, honey, Kix cereal, grassy notes, sourdough bread, sharp pine, hints of Nugget, spicy German wheat hops and some peppery spices. (Taste - 3.75) Light body. Oily-to-creamy texture. Lively carbonation. Clean, crisp finish. (Feel - 4.00) Definitely a different take on a German Pilsner. Enjoyed it, especially as it went down. Something slightly off, but still dug it. (Overall - 3.75) 3.76 85 B+

Marble Wildflower Wheat
Type: 12-oz. bottle Glass: Clear 8-oz. tumbler glass From: Trader Joe’s in (Uptown) Albuquerque, N.M. Price: $1.42 Purchased: May 6, 2016 Consumed: May 6, 2016 Misc.: Born on April 26, 2016 at 12:06 p.m. MT Have tried to Marble beers before and like them both. This one piqued my interest when I saw that it was “accented with New Mexico Wildflower Honey.” Nice way to start out the night. Poured a yellow, golden, hazy color with two 1-to-2 fingers of frothy head. Lots of bubbles coming up from the bottom of the glass, which I could see through the haze. Below average spotty lacing. Poor retention. (Sight - 3.50) Smelled coriander, honey, grassy hops, light floral aromas, sourdough bread, hints of lime zest and orange peel. (Smell - 3.50) Taste was a tad better, getting that wildflower honey, grassy hops, coriander, sourdough bread, corn cereal, grainy floral hops, citrus zest, hints of orange peel and a touch of tart honeydew melon. Some unknown spiciness as well. (Taste - 3.50) Light body. Thin texture. Average-to-soft carbonation. Abrupt, grainy finish. (Feel - 3.75) OK for the style, but nothing special. Honey really shines here. Was hoping for more. (Overall - 3.50) 3.53 80 B

Pours dark brown, a finger or of two of thick head. Nose is coffee, chocolate, roast, a bit of alcohol. Taste is milk chocolate, coffee with cream. Some roast. Mouthfeel is light for a stout, effervescent, but very smooth and rich. A step below great - very good. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Marble Imperial Stout
Bottle from brewery. Average pour and normal RIS aromas lead into a big roast grain taste, sharp bit at the finish. Nice blend of roast grains, burnt toast with hints of chocolate. Smooth and light bodied, but tasty, and fulfilling.

On tap at brewery. Fairly gentle hop aroma on a cloudy orange/golden pour. Skin of head leads into big hop bite. Sharp, short, but potent. Makes my cheeks flush. Tasty, but pungent aroma enough to make this a sipper.

Marble El Mysterio
On tap at brewery. Dark, light bodied brew, inky black with spare head. Added as a strong ale, as I didn’t know what to expect. Woody, peaty aroma, reminiscent of a Scottish. Taste leans towards Belgian territory, quads and dubbels. Pit fruit and raisins. Yet, light lagerish body. Tasty and intriguing.

Marble Imperial Red Ale
On tap at brewery. Very dark amber with small creamy head. Malt in spades, especially in the aroma. Hops kick in at first sip and linger for quite a while, pleasantly. ABV hides behind the hops, only evident by some gentle warmth deep in the gut.

Marble India Pale Ale
Bottle from Whole Foods. Cloudy orange golden pour with small skin of airy head. Funky, musty, citrusy, resembles an APA more than an IPA. A bit of a let down after Elevated.

Marble Red Ale
Pours reddish brown. Minimal little head. Aroma is pine, grapefruit/citrus, a little bread/dough-y and some caramel malts. But more hop than malt on the nose. The mouthfeel is a little more sharp than expected based on the aroma. The flavor is a little matlier than I expected, but is still yeasty and hoppy with citrus and pine. But also some fruitiness (I’m getting apricots, caramel, cereal, etc).

Marble Reserve Ale
Thanks to Matt for this very brew! Dès la capsule sautée, je plonge mon nez dans le goulot de cette bouteille que je fais par la suite circuler. Nous notons tous cette explosion chocolatée qui émanent de la bouteille et sommes convaincus que ce chocolat définit l’orientation principale du liquide. Faux. Le liquide est ambré et translucide comme de l’eau. Un peu trop rouge pour ressembler à un whisky, il pourrait passer pour un Cognac. Peu de mousse, beaucoup d’arômes. Le chocolat annoncé s’est fortement estompé une fois le liquide versé. Ce dernier affiche cette fois beaucoup de caramel chaud, de sucre d’orge, de tofee et une arôme plus complexe qu’il est rare de retrouver dans ce type de bière. Je l’ai! De la banane flambée au Rhum. Un beau rhum brun de canne à sucre douce et tropicale. Texture moelleuse malgré la forte effervescence. Sans être trop sucrée, l’équilibre est excellent entre l’amertume présente, la cassonade et le bourbon dont les notes alcoolisées et tropicales me rappellent plutôt le Rhum. Une bière douce, délicate et très plaisante à déguster!

Really Solid. It’s the type of beer that’s light enough that I could definitely drink several of these in one sitting, but roasty and flavorful enough that I could stand to let it be my only drink of the night.

Marble Red Ale
Btl pours hazy,ruby red color with a big fluffy off white head that lingers leaving lots of lace on glass. Aromas of pine,citrus, pie crust, and brown sugar. Tastes of cookie dough, grapefruit,resin, and fresh hops. Medium body, silky mouthfeel, above average carbonation, and a smooth slightly bitter finish. I never really enjoyed reds until I tried this one. Truly an amazing beer. The malty backbone is balanced perfectly by the clean hop bitterness, making this quite enjoyable. The fresh hops really come through in both aroma and taste. This is now one of my favorite local brews. Yeah my opinion is biased, so what!

Marble Rye Bretta
Sampled September 2014
A steady pour into my teku glass produces a half-finger thick, pale tan colored head. The beer is a murky light amber color that shows a hazy, golden, honey hue when held up to the light. The aroma has a sharp Brettanomyces funk to it up front that is softened just a bit by woody oak and a light fruitiness towards the finish. Toasted oak planks, some buttery oak character, a touch of tart plums, and maybe some tart currant like notes play a role here. The Brett provides a sort of cured-plastic, not quite medicinal, definitely musty, someone musky character to the nose.

Quite light bodied, very refreshing, with a soft carbonation that provides a lightly prickly texture. The beer finishes with a lingering phenolic mustiness that is musty, a touch plastic leaning, definitely spicy; the last is accentuated by a peppery, oak driven character. The oak provides a lot of overall flavor here, woody fresh cut oak plank notes, lightly toasted pale oak that accentuates a sun-baked grain character, a soft buttery oak note (softer than in the nose), and a fair amount of spiciness in the finish without getting overly hot. Soft fruit notes of pear, and perhaps some ripe plum help to add some roundness and balance to this beer.

This is a tasty, interesting Brettanomyces beer. It remains well balanced between the oak, the Brett, and the softer base malt character.

Marble Bräu
Sampled August 2014
The beer is described as a German styled Ale that leans towards an IPA in hoppiness, how can I resist. The beer arrives from the tap with a frothy, nicely beaded, light tan colored head. The beer is a clear honey / golden color that shows a brilliant, rich golden hue when held up to the light. The aroma smells of grapefruit zest, citrusy spruce tips, lots of woody pine leaning notes. There is a supporting malt character here as well, more noticeable after some time, that contributes a solid whole grain cracker like notes, crushed pale malt notes, and a bit of wholesome sun-baked straw aromatics.

This has big hoppy, bitter flavor to it up front, and has a nice carbonation to it that is prickly and nicely pairs with the light viscous heft that this has. The hop flavors lean towards definitive grapefruit zest, Curacao orange zest, woody pine sap notes in the finish, fresh spruce tips, a touch of biting rosemary, some floral peach flavors, and a bit of guava even. The malt character plays a clearly supporting role here, suggestions of whole grain cracker, and a bit of sun-baked hay. The body of this beer leans towards nicely quaffable, but has some texture to it, though it drinks quite easily considering its 7.1% strength.

This is an interesting beer, I have never heard of a "Brau" style, especially since it tastes mostly like an IPA; still, I am always up for a hop fix, and this is definitely enjoyable.

Marble From The Wood Brett IPA
Bottle poured. Huge thanks to Terminus for the bottle. Awesome! Pours a clear golden orange color with a thin oily head. Orange fruit dominant aroma and flavor with a heavy, expected brett yeast base. Mostly a dry flavor with a great hop profile, but not bitter. Love the blend of two styles here. Comes of to me has a perfect blend of IPA and wild ale. Loved it.
