Story time: 5 ambitious, young beer advocates set out from the suburbs of Philadelphia at 5 a.m. on the 27th of March, 2010 to embark on an adventure that most would deem outrageous and stupid. The young beer advocates weathered 27 degree farenheit weather for roughly 2.5 hours of arrival only to be told that there was chance of an unsuccessful journey. That didn't stop the young enthusiasists, as they persisted to succession.
In honor of the beer advocates, 2 bottles of Rosso E Marrone were crack and poured. Shared with good friends Treyrab, nittanybeerfan, Dyan randawakes, and Ashherb17.
Poured into a stone 4oz taster, this beer pour a deep ruddy and rusted copper. Very hazy with a light white ring of head.
The smell is so floral, with some beautiful tart cherry flavors, and a really interesting slight bitter chocolate. Slight funkiness, unripened green grapes. Quite honestly one of the most complex wilds that I've ever had the pleasure of sniffin'. In the taste, the chocolate shines through sweetly. The sourness is more in the form of a mouthpuckering balasmic vinegar, not quite acidic. The vanilla and wine flavors are coming out great. Right now, this beer is a little bit too spritzy, and a little bit too overcarbonated. I'm hoping that this will curb with age. All in all, this has the potential to age into one of my favorite sours OF ALL TIME. Only time will tell.

Bottle pour at the post-FWIBF bottle share held at the Adelaide Inn in Paso Robles, CA.
Thanks to mrbubbler for sharing this one.
Pours a murky orange-brown with a foamy beige head that settles to wisps of film on top of the beer. Small dots of lace slowly drip into the remaining beer on the drink down. Smell is sour with malt, grain, fruit, and acidic aromas. Taste is much the same with sour malt, fruit, and wood flavors on the finish. There is a medium amount of acidity on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer that is tasty but slightly one dimension in its sourness.
