Shared by Bradford and poured into a tulip. This one pours a dark crannberry red with just a thin layer of foam. Real nice color with sparce lace.

Dark sweet tart cherries with hint of oak and vanilla. Pretty simple aroma but it's really pleasing. Dark chocolate in the flavor with a little bit of toffee and and dark slightly tart but mostly sweet dark cherries. Lots of oak on the back of the toungue with this one.

Nice soft carbonation on this one with a nice medium body. Overall a really well down bruin. One of the better ones of the style that I've had in my opinion.

Bottle shared courtesy of Hophead101 on June 10, 2011

A - Hard pour does not yield alot of foam and only a little bit of lacing remained on the glass. The color is a dark reddish brown.

S - I'm not getting alot of aroma but I have my allergy ridden nose to blame for this. I could pick up some oak and an overall wine grape sourness.

T - Sour up front and it hits you in the back of the throat and makes you clench a bit, chocolate, grape tannins, tobacco and finishes with some more of the chocolate and grapes.

M - smooth & creamy, prickly carbonation that finishes slightly dry

D - very enjoyable and drinkable, could be cloying if you had the whole bottle to yourself.

look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Poured into a tulip glass from a 750ml bottle.

A - Pours a nice ruby hued brown with some slight carbonation that rises up after a vigorous pour and struggles up after a swirl. The head is nice off-white and has some chunky bubbles.

S - Wow! Delicious tart notes up first with some vinegar and some nice woody oak and cedar notes. There is some nice slight caramel sweetness present as well. There is some nice cherry and cranberry tartness as well as some slight fruit sweetness.

T & M - Flavor starts off with a lightly carbonated balsamic vinaigrette note. There is some great funk as well near the beginning. There is some nice slight malt and bread notes mixed in with some nice dark and dank oak notes. There is also some nice cranberry tartness and some slight sweetness that struggles behind it. There is some slight heat and some nice almost grassy hop finish to it. Obviously mostly a sour with some great tart notes. The body is medium but a bit undercabonated, nothing too bad though. Great beer that will get better.

O - Great beer. Nice traditional flavors with some slight "Imperial" notes. Cant wait to age my other bottle. It is definately a bigger sour though. Not for rooks.

Poured from the bottle into a Captain Lawrence tulip.

A - Pours a dark red-ish brown, almost mahogany like. About a finger of off-white head which receded quickly. A little bit of lacing sticks around. Active bubbly carbonation is present.

S - The oakiness dominates the nose. Slightly tart and a small amount of acetic character. Light notes of cherry.

T - Quite sour with, again, the oak dominating the taste. A fruitiness that reminds me of some red wines. Light on the vinegar. The finish is dry and the oakiness lingers.

M - Medium body. Crisp, prickly carbonation.

O - A great beer. I haven't tried many offerings from The Bruery, let alone their one-off's or Reserve Society brews, but this was the best I've had from them. Really solid overall.

a - a dark amber. almost like coca cola but with more of a red overtone. no head but a nice collar.

s - sweet and sour. not as overbearingly sweet as most flanders reds that ive experienced.

t - almost like sour candy. the bottle didnt have this, but the tap seems to make a difference:

m - nice and tart. intense carbonation from the fermentation.

o - pretty nice by itself. nice to get access to such colabotations like this. for 20 bucks a bottle its a bit steep but more than worth trying.

Bottle, thanks to Andrew.

Pouring a clear reddish dark brown with a dense, light-brown head with good retention and nice lacing, this is a good-looking oud bruin. The nose is great. There's a nice, fruity sourness with some dates and plums to go with the balsamic vinegar character. Mildly figgy as well, there's a blend of red wine, seed-like (fig and strawberry seeds?) tannins. Mild vanilla is present. As it warms up, a berry-like aroma grows, with blackberries and raspberries. There's a bit of leather as well, which is surprising. It seems Bretty in origin, rather than of malty provenance, which is interesting given the style. Great stuff, I like this more than Oude Tart, I think.

The palate opens with a blend of sweetness and sourness, with macerated dates, red wine vinegar, some plums, figs, currants. Acetic sourness is present with a touch of acetone as well, cleansing my nostrils. Again, as it warms up, the dry, crackling leather character is present. Drying on the finish with vinegar and an oak tannins, mildly astringent and working wonderfully with the fruit and sourness. Medium-light in body with moderate carbonation, this is a rather excellent beer. However, I do not know if I would like to age this too much longer, as the balance is great now, the brightness is just right and there's nothing that could possibly improve here.

Burnt copper, a ring but no head with spotty lacing.

Tart, grape, sour cherry, oaky dryness, extremely fruit forward.

Grape peel, lots and lots of cherry.

Dry and crisp, drinkable.

I like this beer, not really as sour as I thought it would be, then again this is an Oud Bruin so it's just about right.

A- Dark hazy plum brown. Bubbly head that stays around a minute. Little bit of lacing.

S- Musty weeds, cranberries, plums, and raisins. Nice leathery smell. Definite sour smell with more acidic notes. Definitely makes the nose tingle. :)

T- Oustanding. Cherries, cranberries, and raisins again. Hints of balsamic and vinegar. Great tartness in the beginning with a dry sweetness in the finish. Hints of oak and tobacco through out. Lots of layers in this beer, especially that aren't present in the nose. Nice surprise.

M- Tart puckering sensation up front with a dry finish. Medium body and perfect medium amount of tingly carbonation to lift flavors off the palate and create a new taste each second.

O- Maybe the price was a bit expensive, but then again, it was worth the experience of this great brew. I would gladly share again with my friends again. We all enjoyed.

look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4.5

Appearance: (4.0)
- Pours a dark murky cranberry brown. Very minimal bubbly tan head, down to a dusty residue ridden chunky foam on top. This beer is loaded with traces of yeast and/or brett. Many spores touch bottom while still much remains floating on the top. More foam appears at the second pour, revealing it's thick tan head with specs in it.

Smell: (4.5)
- Very nice oak softens the cranberry, leathery and earthy aromas. Wonderful dusty sour shines through a bed of tart fruits and flower pedals. Slight funk and wood make this a very great smelling sour.

Taste: (4.0)
- Great funky leathery tobacco malt notes with a bed of tart cranberry, slight balsamic notes like described on the bottle, and a touch of wet blanket. A wonderful backdrop of dark currants show through with blackberry. Oak and woody character along with some earthiness. All very well melded together. A very fine sour.

Mouth Feel: (3.5)
- Slightly thin, watery, and mouth watering. A bit chalky and drying from the brett and woody character. Overall not bad.

Overall: (4.5)
- This is a great interpretation of the style. Very well played funky flavors with a fantastic tart sourness. All my favorite sours always have a dark currant flavor that shines through towards the end of the taste. This is certainly a first class brew. I was a little surprised with the amount of yeast/brett floating around on top of the goodness. I am positive this beer would only get much better with a couple years on it.

Not sure what made the previous reviewer so upset... I can't speak for the price of this beer in bottles, but a 6 oz pour at Capone's during Philly Beer Week was a reasonable $6.75... this is a sour aged for over a year, not a pale ale... and I'm the first one to speak up if I'm being overcharged for a beer.

Anyway, onto the beer: It's a gorgeous red leather with a light brown head - more carbonation than one is accustomed to with a sour aged for this length of time. Smells nice and tart; a lactic quality blended with tart cranberry, balsamic vinegar, and oak way in the back. The taste, and more importantly, the mouthfeel, are out of this world. The taste begins with a slight sourness, peaking with a lovely sour dark fruit flavor that rivals any sour I've ever had in the middle of the taste, concluding with the smoothest finish I've ever had from a sour beer (by a long shot). I never thought I'd say this about a sour of any kind, but the time spent in the barrel really smoothed this one out the way aging a very strong imperial stout smooths a very strong imperial stout out. The finish is clean, creamy, and cleanses the palate between sips impressively. I only wish I had more!

On tap during Philly Beer Week.

A: 5 shades darker than chestnut brown. Only the faintest skim of khaki. Stray slivers of lacing here and there.

S: Dark fruits dominate. Cherries, raisins, dark berries. A lingering sourness is ever-present.

T: Like the nose there are dark, sour fruits dominating up front before eventually finishing in a puckering lactic sourness. Others were more impressed with this than I. I just didn't think it had the necessary oak and earth that should complement the fruity sourness.

M: The sourness is a bit off-putting without the accompanying oak contribution. Don't get me wrong, I like sours as well as the next... this just was a little off.

O: A decent Oud Bruin... but this is the kind of beer that pisses me off about both breweries involved here. I am all for experimentation, but damn guys... in the last three years between the two of you, you've made 300 f'ing beers. Don't experiment with beers that eventually cost 20-30 bucks. Oude Tart was 800x better.

Beer served at the SAVOR salon with the Bruery, thanks Patrick. Beer is rusty colored with a mild haze. The head is thin and brown, tiny bubbles, some lacing, looks good.

Aroma is quite sour, bright acetic acid and lactic, very nice aroma.

Beer is a little sweet but very sour, strongly lactic, great tartness at the back, acetic brightness overall a good beer. The finish is dry but overall it is really nice. I"d have it again.

on tap at devils den in philly during the bella vista bash

Pours a deep browned color with some reddish hues, thin head and slight filmy retention.

Strong acidic notes in the nose with cranberry and dates, lactic sourness and oakyness.

Biting sourness right up front with some fruity tones. Cranberry, dates, and raisins compile a dark fruit complexion. Decent earthyness and oak from the barrel. Complex and multi-layered, definitely sour throughout. Finishes with dry sour and slight alcohol.

Medium bodied, higher carbonation, dry and slightly abrasive on the tongue. A solid sour beer, pretty aggressive flavors and nice dark fruit profile.

Not sure what to say. I'm hoping this was a bad bottle as I love sour beers and was looking forward to this.

This brew lacked carbonation to the point where it felt was if I was drinking apple cider that had been left in the sun too long. Heavy vinegar notes and over the top wood characteristics. I want the wood to impart flavor but not make me think I'm taking a bite out of a tree limb.

From the bottle at the Bruery and Cigar City salon at SAVOR 2011. Served in a SAVOR goblet.

Pours a somewhat-murky tawny red color with a small off-white head that sticks around a bit before falling into a thin collar. Some sparse lacing. The nose brings a slight amount of bread plus a good dosing of brown sugar. These characteristics fall beneath the semi-strong notes of cherry and oak with mild acetic character. Good acidity throughout. The flavor has brown sugar and cherry along with some oak and tannin. Moderate acidity and light sweetness for a really nice balance. Medium body and average carbonation. Really solid brew.

Thanks to Mr. Nawskon for sharing this bottle, was going to hunt it down but decided not to do it for money reasons.

A- Murky dark red brown hue with a small off-white head. Retention is pretty decent for a sour and a small pillow stays around. The pillow has a texture similar to cottage cheese or something. A fairly impressive coat of lace.

S- Phenomenal aroma. Reminds me of the Supplication I had on tap. Tons of great sour fruit notes, cranberry, cherry, raspberry, sour apple, pretty much just name it. Acetic/vinegar comes into play and it blends in amazingly. A tiny bit of raisin and spice. First sniff was extremely sour, stung the nostrils.

T- A lot like the nose but the sourness really kicks in. Once again, a lot of sour fruit, the cranberry is very present, a good amount of cherry and apple as well, let the yeast do the work. Oak, spice, raisin, balsamic and vinegar also hint.

MF- Light body with fairly low carbonation, a suitable amount. The sour feel gets intense but I love it along with the flavors present.

Damn, The Bruery brings it to the table with this beer. I love the sour fruit flavors and the vinegar going on, the cranberry rules. I kind of want to hunt down a bottle to age despite the price tag.

Poured into large Duvel tulip in the mid-40's.

Just a faint tan head that fades quickly over the semi-opaque, dark brown body. Some carbonation flowing up.

Lots of oak and vanilla aromas, with vinegar, and some dark fruity sweetness.

Plenty of tart plum skin in the flavor, with lots of tannin and balsamic. Picked up on the leathery quality, but not the cranberry described on the label. A light, undiscernable burn accompanies the finish.

Mouthfeel seems a bit thin, even for the style. Carbonation level seems appropriate.

Overall, this is a decent example for the style, but not one of my favorites. I picked up 2, and will cellar the other one for a few years.

750ml bottle into a wine glass. Thanks to BA morningthief for picking up this bottle and splitting it with me.

Appearance: Moderate pour yields a thin white head that immediately dissipates to some random froth. Pours a dark, slightly red brown and leaves many dots and splotches of lacing.

Smell: Mild fruit and heavy acetic sourness. Smells like a real puckerer. Warmth brings out some booziness. Roasted malt mildly present, but mainly acetic and fruity. Good.

Taste: Up front, bold acetic sourness and some reasonably big roasted malt. Smokey and oaky through the middle, with some leather and dark malt flavors. Short finish, primarily of mild oaky vanilla.

Full mouthfeel, with the tannins of a really heavy red wine. The fruit from the nose is unfortunately absent from the taste (and it never pops up). There's lots of punch to the flavor, but I wish it were... spread out more, I guess is the best way to say it. Everything is bold, but there isn't much complexity and it finishes too short for such a full bodied, powerful flavor.

That said, the taste really grows on me. What's here works together very well; the roasted malt, sourness, and oak all compliment each other. The high ABV is also well hidden. With a better finish and more depth, I'd grade it higher. To put it another way, the taste (like every other aspect of the beer) approaches greatness, but is just "very good," and is nowhere near flawless.

Mouthfeel: Full bodied, creamy and tannic. Mildly puckering sourness. Not much aftertaste.

Overall: As I said above, this beer is notably good, but not great. There's lots of really beautiful aspects to it, and I don't regret buying it at all, but it doesn't ultimately come together like the better wild ales of the world do.

Not something I'd pay $20 for twice, at least not to drink fresh. Would be interesting to try with a few years of age on it.

dark reddish-brown that is way more red than brown. tan head that holds and leaves attractive lace. nose is lactic sourness, cherry, wood and a hint of vanilla. taste follows suit with a healthy dose of sour on top of cherry with just the faintest bit of sweetness about midpalate rounding it out. if you told me cherries were in here, i wouldn't be surprised. delicious, and to me, barely a trace of booze, which is quite impressive for a beer that is this strong. soft mouthfeel. not sticky and well carbonated. good, long finish and no aftertaste. delicious. bruery wins with this collaboration.

Bottle into a wine glass; sampled while in line for DLD. Huge thanks to whoever provided the pour.

A: Cloudy maroon body with a few chunks of thin tan foam on top. Kinda ugly, but I understand.

S: Nice Oud Bruin aroma of acetic acid, sour cherries, and some oaky vanilla. More sour than sweet, thankfully.

T: Very sour, with lactic + acetic tartness carrying through entirely. A touch of vanilla on the finish. Tasty.

M: Creamy, smooth, well-carbonated.

O: I really enjoyed this beer, and found no real faults with it at all, but I just could help but think as I was drinking it that Rodenbach Grand Cru is both distinctly better and less than half the price. Food for thought.

Cheers!

Received bottle in trade with MrGaryFish- thanks!

A: pours a cloudy reddish brown, little to no head on pour, no lacing

S: huge whiff of vinegar/acid, smells like it will be very tart on the palate, cranberries and cherries are also present, oak comes in on the tail end. The acid is bold and in your face, the fruit is a little more on the mellow side.

T: things start with an interplay between sweet fruity notes and tart notes, much like a tart cherry or cranberry, as the beer rushes past the palate, it leaves significant tartness and causes palate to pucker. The finish is clean and crisp with just a touch of sweet to keep the sour from getting overwhelming.

MF: high carbonation, medium body, refreshing and spritzy mouthfeel

O: nice well balanced sour, the abv is a little high for the style but nicely integrated. Not quite as complex as some other examples of the style.

Bottle from NY into a Duvel tulip with oglmcdgl.

Marron pours out bloody red with some maroon hints and dark apple red. IT's also a pretty dirty beer, alot of floaties from a careful pour clouds up the glass. A semi loose light tan bubbly head up above.

Marron has a very oaky base, not sure if it's the barrel type or the amount of time in there but oak is big underneath some cherry scent and a malty background. Some vinegar pops up but not enough to make me puke.

I took my time with this beer to get to know it and Im thinking it needs some time in the bottle. Besides the oak flavor everything else just seems a bit muted. This includes cherry, apple, malt variety and a hint of sweet chocolate. Im glad the vinegar is low, time may bring it out more, who knows.

Sourness is there but not fully out there yet, acidity is low, tart and funky, the body is a nice medium in line with most Belgians, and the carb is there and slightly bitey on the tounge. A great feel.

Overall, 'moron acidfire'(TM) is good for a go and possibly good for a two year stay in the cellar, yet it is terribly overpriced for what it is, I could have got three and a half big bottles of Rodenbach Grand Cru for this one and thats Imported.

Poured on tap at the CCB tasting room. Dark amber color with a thin off-white head.

Smells of green apple, a little bit of funk, and a hint of vinegar. An inviting tartness that warns your mouth.

Taste is pretty mouth puckering. Get the green apple and vinegar from the smell. Some tartness from cherries and maybe some citrus, but no noticeable hops.

Mouthfeel is somewhat syrupy with good carbonation.

Picked up a bottle and am interested to see how this one ages.
