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. asceticbrewer (69) - Arizona, USA - MAR 16, 2015
(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. umich03jm (3513) - Flat Rock, Michigan, USA - FEB 13, 2015
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. Pailhead (6540) - Rochester Hills, Michigan, USA - JAN 3, 2015

Bottle: The aroma consists of consists of tart cherry, cola, lemon, and a hint of acetone. It pours transparent dark amber with a minimal off-white head that quickly fades to a very fine ring. The flavor starts with tart cherry, caramel, and cola. The finish has moderate sour lemon, sour cherry, and a touch of oak. It’s medium bodied with light-moderate carbonation.
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.

Bottle shared at the RBESG 2014, grand tasting 10/08/2014 Craft Beer Co Clerkenwell. Thanks to Ken. Bright orange / light amber coloured pour with a small head. Aroma is tart fruit, apricot, funky brett. Flavour is really tart, sharp puckering acid. Pretty clean lemon and citric acid. Palate is sharp crisp acid. Lingering tart fruits and funk. hopscotch (11104) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - OCT 28, 2014
Bottle... Murky caramel-colored pour with a small, creamy, mushroom-colored head. Good retention. The bouquet is fruity and crusty with light splashes of sour red wine vinegar and pungent, cherry-scented nail polish remover. Medium to full-bodied with stinging carbonation. The flavor is both sour and pungent. This would probably taste a good bit like acetone if I were stupid enough to sample acetone. Finishes abrasive, sour and tongue numbing. Bad.

Le côté surette des framboises sert de tremplin pour une longueur en bouche prolongé par des sucres bagarreurs. La rhubarbe pateauge aussi dans la mixture et c’est une bénédiction pour sa complexité. anders37 (26641) - Malmö, SWEDEN - SEP 14, 2014
