On-tap at the source itself....well, which source? It's a collaboration! Ok, to be more specific, at The Bruery. A generous 10-12 ounce pour for $6, on to the beer:
Brown colored, leaning towards crimson. There's a good amount of lace that sticks to the glass. But I didn't buy Marrón Acidifié to looks at it; I bought it in hopes of its taste. But first, the aroma. Wow!! I could sniff this for days. Currents, soured grapes, maybe soured plums too? There's just something about it that's awesome and addicting.
Now the taste. Here we go, lots of flavors, but all integrated very well in the liquid. Black current and plum start it off, some cherry as well. Balsalmic vinegar too. I eventually catch oak and vanilla (thanks wethorseblanket), and then arriving is cheddar cheese towards the end of the ride. The balancing of the tartness/sourness is a work of art, not too much of it, but enough to salivate your mouth.
I'm blown away by The Bruery, again. But let's not pigeonhole Cigar City, who helped with this magnificent "Imperial Flanders Brown". The best new Bruery work I've tasted in the last 18 months, maybe ever. Purchasing a few bottles afterwards was a no brainer, even if they were $20 a pop.

A: Medium amount of extra fine khaki lacing which hangs around and has a sharp contrast to the extra dark imperial oud bruin.
S: A giant glass of liquid sour cranberries.
T: Clean oak up front and comes with some tannins, until the it turns sour with a long lasting cranberry flavor. I love this style and these two breweries show it it off perfectly in an imperial version. I don't get any booze, jjst a lasting tart and sweet dark fruit flavor that lingers with this sticky beer.
M: Smooth and sticky.
O: Awesome. Can't believe that this could get any better. A big sour that you can savor on your own.
