Bottle shared by craytonic. Thanks Matt!
The beer is slightly hazy and appears orange to red in color. The aroma offers a strong lactic and acetic presence with some mildly sweet fruit. Smells like a fruity Flanders ale. The flavor is sour and funky, with some lingering notes of cherries. Moderate carbonation with a funky acetic finish. The feel is a bit rough. A good beer, but not great, I would have this again.

Actually a fair bit worse than Marron Acidifie by my accounting, with a kind of weird fruity sweetness that takes away from the really solid Oude Bruin elements that the base beer has going. Tried on multiple occasions, both at CCB and from a bottle at Tower of Power Sour Hour 3: Sour with a Vengeance. BoBoChamp (5755) - Gent, BELGIUM - AUG 26, 2012

Pours hazy brown with very low beige head. Aroma is of sourness, acetic, lambic-style, malt, caramel. Taste sour, acetic, lambic-style, malt, fruits (raspberries), alcohol. Hot feeling in the back of the tongue. Overall: Nice balance, very good.

Bottle (750 ml)! Thanks to jp7161! Hazy light brown with a small off-white head and some lacing. Aroma of red fruits (raspberries?), red wine and acidic sourness. Taste is acidic with malt, red fruits, red wine, wood, dates, spices and peppery notes. Mouthfeel is dry. Alcohol is present. Pleasant sour and fun to drink because it’s quite complex. jcartamdg (3436) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 21, 2012
Poured into my bruery tulip. Pours a hazy amber brown with decent carbonation and a paper thin head. Aroma is of oak, tropica fruits and red wine. Taste follows the nose, sweet and sour tastes, acidic but not too much, the oak is there but not in your face. I tried this at the 100 bottle release from ccb and the fruit was more present then. This has aged into a sweeter marron acidife Which isn’t a bad thing by any means just different from the fresh. Mouth feel is smooth despite the pucker and acidity. Overall this is one amazing sour that I am glad I kept for myself. I would be the first in line if this was ever released again.

750ml bottle that poured a dark red color with aromas of tartness, oak, cherries, and some dark fruits. Flavors are the same, just a tart version of them, that blended nicely. pantanap (3366) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 21, 2012
Bruery/cigar city iso:ft. 750ml bottle obtained through the reserve
society... Pours a deeper reddish caramel, for the most part opaque
although a smidge of light seeps through. A thin creamy barely off-
white rests on top... Aroma of subdued sour oak upfront, not too
acidic which is nice, sour cherries and dark fruits to coincide. A
touch of acidity surfaces midway through and lingers for short
while... Flavorwise much of it renders similar to what the aroma
suggests. Semi-sweet upfront with a mild acidity that follows closely
behind. Dark fruits, cherries, dates and figs withstanding. An earthy
following presents itself which curtails any developing sharp acidic
qualities. Lighter to medium bodied with an equal amount of

1000th rating FINALLY! Poured from bottle at Reserve Society 2012 event at Phoenix Club. Poured a reddish murky color with a tan head. Aroma was dark fruits and vinegar notes. Taste was more oak than I remember in Marron Acidifie, but seemed a bit sweeter due to the dates and guava added. Really solid sour.
