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.

A-Guessing it was from a bottle; sampled at EBF. Rosso E Marrone pours a reddish brown, which I'm guessing is why the beer earned its name.

S-Tart cherries and a kind of Pinot Noir winey fruitiness. Funky and oaky as well. Also seems to have a brown maltiness.

T-A big, bold Flanders with lots of sweet and sour cherries.again, it reminds me of an old Pinot Noir or maybe even a Barrolo. Oakiness and genuine wine-grape flavors. Finishes with a sweet maltiness that is also infected with a lingering funk.

M-Alcohol is irrelevant. Soft carbonation and an agreeable body. Tannic.

O/D-I enjoyed Rosso E Marrone. It is sure to please any lovers of Wild Ales. I don't I will get to try this again but would absolutely love to sit down and nurse a whole bottle to see how it changes with some warmth.
