Shared with Oddnotion, Jessee, he picked up the bottle. Gotta review a $26 bottle.

Pours a deep brown/amber color with ruby red highlights when held up to light. Almost no head but leaves a little lacing down the glass.

Smell is a little woody, little funky, dark fruits, lemon, caramel, and a hint of vinegar.

Taste is lemon and vinegar up front, opens up into some fruit, oak, and funk, finishes with a little oak. Dry but very juicy. Slightly too acidic for me.

Mouthfeel is thick and undercarbonated, wish it was more carbonated.

Overall its good, not great. I would try buy another and age and try it in a year.

750ml bottle split with bs870621345, aka Bobby. Poured into my Russian River Belgian glass.

Appearance: Pours a deep dark brown with no head to speak of. Nice lacing left around the edges.

Smell: Very sour and funky. I catch more sour though.

Taste: Good strong sourness. The funk from the nose is not too present. Some fruitiness near the end, not too much oak. Very enjoyable.

Mouthfeel: Good medium body, not over carbonated, but the carbonation is present.

Overall: I am very impressed with this beer. It is delicious, however for the price of $25 it is hard to justify drinking this on a regular basis. I would certainly recommend it if you get the chance to try it. I love Cigar City, the Bruery is alright in my opinion, this combination is a winner!

My fault for not decanting this. Made some floaties in the pour. Tart as he'll, drying sour in the back, better as it warms.

Nose is a lovely oud bruin, some good Pickering tartness warnings, cranberries definitely present, along with some wood. Malts too. Watery malts.

The taste starts with water that rushes the cranberry sweetness and malts past your tongue a bit too fast for my preference. The middle keeps those malts and transitions to sour, and the en is fully drying sour. Hardcore drying cranberry sour.

Puckering and good. But maybe not exceptional, the taste o's damn solid and complex. Cheers to both brueweuwrries on this collaboration!

From 750ml bottle to Bruges hybrid glass on 4/24/11
*From notes

A: It's a hazy charred burgundy to burnt umber. A .75 finger head is the byproduct of a generous pour. There are floaties as well, which look like curdled milk, though they have no substance and cannot be detected within the mouth.

S: The sour funk of black cherries and dried figs is astounding. It also showcases quite a bit of what I decect as new, medium toasted oak. Immensely complex.

T: Vinegar hits and instantly the mouth begins watering. The mid is a playground for the dark fruits, which come off like sun dried concentrate. As it winds down, the tannic acid and vannilin dry the mouth ever so slightly, prepping the palate for the next nip. I've never in my life had a beer quite like this. Putting it into words seems to trivialize the experience. It simply must be had to be understood. Perfection.

M: The carbonation is really welcoming, as I find most beers within the sour realm tend to be somewhat soft or flabby. This is slightly oily, but it suits the beer and it certainly has more body then most within the style.

O: The Bruery and Cigar City have created a masterpiece with their Marron Acidifie. It stands as a monumental achievement, and will certainly be at or near the top of my 2011 best-of list.

ive been looking forward to trying this guy, had this guy side by side with CBS Wanderer. probably not the best idea as this guy doesn't quite measure up to it even tho its still a great beer in its own right.

a- much lighter than wanderer. orange yellowish with a nice half inch head.

s- smells good. cherry notes up front, darker fruit notes follow, malts in the back. tartness very present

t- cherries up front, acidic, tasty. not as flavorful as wandere buy still has a lot going on.

m- much thinner than wanderer, but still medium bodied well carbonated

0- its a very good beer, i think i would have enjoyed it more if i hadn't had the flavor burst of the wanderer on my tongue, but this guys is still a winner

Draft pour into a footed chalice at Brix in Sunset Beach.

A: Murky, medium rusty brown with one finger of diminishing cinnamon-tinted foam head. No lacing remains on the glass.

S: Fairly straight-forward but focused lactic acidity and aromatic oak. There is a fine thread of well-fermented vinous fruit that marries well with the wood, suggesting nuanced complexity that must be tracked down.

T: Begins off-dry, with tannic leather and dark pipe tobacco that are complementary to the heavy presence of well-cured oak. Acidity is intense at first but moderates as the beer warms, coming across as highly lactic. Vanilla butter creme frosting is also noted amongst early flavors. The middle remains woody, drying out some--but with contradictory brown sugar flavor detected--and developing a less appealing urea presence. Spicy clove and cinnamon stick makes an appearance toward the finish, where acidity becomes more felt than tasted. Savory spice lingers on the palate.

M: Thin to medium viscosity, moderate acidity is felt late but remains fairly labile, with moderate carbonation.

D/O: This collaboration between The Bruery and Cigar City represents a fairly gonzo formulation for their first combined outing, but it is able to deliver a lot of traditional style elements that are at times appealing and challenging. The smell has perfect laser focus on first approach, becoming just a little muddled by the flavors as the two begin to mix into one big and sour experience. The flavors are best at the front-end, really embracing the palate; not juicy, but just as pleasing. Qualities are less focused as the taste progresses, but they do not deviate too far, or for too long. Barrel notes are aggressively woody but refined throughout, and sourness leans into lactic territory, staying appealing. Perhaps the most complementary thing one can say about a barrel-aged sour is that it tastes nothing like the components it was assembled from, and Marron Acidifie fits that description well enough.

On tap at Stone Oakquinox 2011 in a snifter.

A: Dark reddish brown. Big frothy light brown head. Nice retention and color.

T: Nice dark fruit profile. Grape, plum, prune, blackberry, and a whisper of date. Lightly acetic. Very nice. Light oak presence with a faint mustiness. All aspects are balanced and harmonious.

T: Lightly tart with prominent notes of plum, grape, and a dash of prune. Moderately lactic with evident oak and a touch of leather. Acetic profile is at a lower moderate level and is balanced nicely by the wood, dark fruit, and lactic character. Very nice fruit profile and very complex flavor. There is a lot going on here.

M: Medium in body with moderate carbonation. Mouthfeel is sticky and smooth.

Overall: Complex, refreshing, and damn enjoyable. Recommended.

On tap at City Beer in SF.

Hazy medium reddish brown color with a small off-white head.

Acetic and tart aroma, loads of vinegar with some sour fruit/cherry notes, date, and leather.

The flavor is rather oaky and leathery with caramel malt, sour cherry, date and fig, and red wine vinegar.

Medium-bodied, mildly tart and tannic, with average carbonation level.

A solid oud bruin overall. The Bruery is on it’s game as of late.

Poured into a tulip. Beautiful red/brown with a two finger white head that leaves a decent amount of lace behind.
The smell is nice and tart, vinegar, sour cherry, with a very slight malt back.
The taste puts a lot of Oud Bruins to shame. Great mix of sour fruit, caramel malt and maybe a bready malt or yeast. Very rich and delicious. Goes down smooth.
Too bad they sold out of the bottles or I would have grabbed one. What a top notch brew.

750 ml. bottle poured into my CCB tulip.

A: Rather muddy brown color. The pour did not produce much head, but what was there hung around for the entire glass.

A: Tart fruit, vinegar, brown sugar, sour cherries, blackberries, and alcohol. Nice substantial malt bill, next to no hop presence.

T: At first the taste is dominated by the malt vinegar, but then the dark fruit notes come through. Cherries and blackberries mostly, but with underlying notes of merlot. The beer finishes very dry, very sour, and with a hefty kick from the ABV.

M: Thin body, good carbonation. Pretty nice for the style.

O: I think this is a good beer, but one that will only get better with age. I think the vinegar and alcohol really need to mellow a bit more. I have another bottle and will revisit it in 6 months or more. But all in all, pretty nice colab. Skal.

Picked up a bottle today at my local Total Wine: $19. Having had this expensive beer on draft, I wouldn't have purchased it again but for a giftcard from my mother-in-law. Thanks!

Pours very brown with a short off-white head that quickly reduces to a ring in my glass.

Tart fruity aroma with big notes of vinegar and oak.

Tart taste of -- thanks to brewer's note -- balsamic vinegar. Fruit notes mix with oak to make a complex sour beer. But the sour notes aren't extreme. They are muted with the wood flavors. No hint of the higher alcohol level.

Light body, but it isn't watery.

This is a sipping beer that's meant to be savored. A must-try for oud bruin fans. I can see why they aged this a year before selling it.

Poured into a Mikkeller wine-style glass.

Marron indeed. Its a deep shade of maroon with shades of fig, purple and brown. Not much of a head, even from a rough pour. I even adjusted the pour to become more aggressive once I noticed there wasn't going to be a problem with overflow. It quickly dissipates to nothing but a pinstripe around the edge. Swirling will leave spots of foam on the side of the glass.

The aroma has that balsamic vinegar aroma I expect from a Flanders style sour. This one's vinegar smell is quite nicer than most. A black cherry and plum skin aroma is very strong and lends some acidity and under-ripe fruitiness to the beer's bouquet. Oak comes out quite strongly as the beer warms. This lends an unexpected level of vanilla to things.

The sourness is very calm on this one. It does, at least, ride out the whole flavor experience with a series of peaks and valleys. Lots of sour cherry and plum tussle with chocolate and wood. The finish has notes of orange juice, cranberry and lots of oaky wood.

Thinner body with a sharp acidity and a fairly dry finish.

I'm not sure this is worth the $20 some I paid for it, but it is a pretty well constructed sour with plenty of subtlety. The less aggressive sourness and pronounced under-ripe fruitiness might make this beer one of the better introductory sours, if it weren't for the price and limited nature of it.

On Tap

Stone Brew Co.
Escondido, CA

A dark brown and ruby with glowing red edges. Thin half-inch light tan head atop. Pretty.

A powerfully aromatic sour. There's plenty of sweet fruit aromas, particularly cherries and grapes, along with a mellow woody aroma. Very tart nose.

A delicious and perfect sour. Balanced, sweet, tangy, woody, spicy, then more sweetness. It's one of those special drinks where the longer you drink, the more it evolves, the more you find in it.

Medium body, lip puckering, no alcohol presence. Perhaps could benefit from a touch more carbonation, but I'd only be nit-picking.

An absolutely fantastic sour. I raced down to Stone when I saw on the Web site that it was available for a keep the glass night on draft, and I don't regret it one bit. Great beer!

Pours a fairly clear brown color with ruby highlights. The head has some loose bubbles and is small, and settles into a light ring.

The aroma is of oak and sour tart fruit. Sour cherries come to mind. There is a peppery scent as well. Some musty old book aroma in the nose.

Oaky, lemony sour hits hard off the initial sip. A bit of an unripened grapefruit rind sour flavor. This transitions into a earthy, bitter flavor from the malt. The label mentions something about leather and that is spot on. There is a 9 volt battery acidity to this beer. The acidity is quite tingly.

The feel is light with spritzy carbonation. Quite sour throughout. Acidity can be a bit sharp at times.

An interesting beer for sure. I like the musty malt character but I wish there was a bit more from the malt to offset the sharp acidity of the brew.

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

A: Poured into my Duvel tulip, this brew pours a murky dark amber with a very bubbly head that vanishes in thin air.

S: The aroma is very tame, yet has its depth to it. Sour cherries which sometimes can be a little harsh are obviously smooth out with the oak aging. This brew is a little to sweet in the nose to be vinegary, but their is something nice adding a little acidity to this brew.

T: In the flavor the darker, more bitter fruit notes come through. Blackberries and currants with a musty tone. Red wine vinegar rounds off the back of the pallet.

MF: The mouth feel is refreshing, but maybe a little to thin.

Overall, this is a good brew, but a little too pricey IMO. Great beer for a collaboration, but I would have loved to see a little more Cigar City, and a little less Bruery.

2011 Marron Acidifie 750 ml

A: Pours a complete blackout mahogany with no head and small chunks of sediment that both fall to the bottom and a few white specks that hung out on top.

S: This has an incredible vinegarette aroma with sourness in the form of tart cherries, oak and lemons.

T: Sour it claims and sour it is. This is incredibly sour and definitely a sipper. There is a bunch of lemon mixing with unripened cherry and very bitter fruit which definitely creates the sour lemon face. As it warms in your mouth, you get a few different layers of flavor indicating that this is definitely a blend of barrels some of which had turned slightly vinegary, some of which are full of leather and others that had plenty of tropical fruit. I definitely can taste an unripened cranberry flavor which is named on the label. This is that tartness that really comes through to induce the pucker. If you have ever eaten an unsweetened cranberry, you should recognize this as well. At the very end and as it warms more and more, the leather and tobacco really come through. I tasted a number of caramelized malt sugars and really this is what I liked the most. Like a bottle of wine, this one changes as it gets oxygen in it and heats up.

Light mouthfeel which is right for the style and a nice medium light carbonation level.

Overall, a tasty and complex oud brune, more to my liking than some of the Flemish Oud Brunes and a slow sipper.

Finally getting around to posting a review on this release. Have had it three times now, once from the bottle I shared at a tasting, and twice now on draft (one this past Sunday at Bone yard Bistro, and last night at Tony's Darts Away)

A: The beer pours a cloudy ruby red tinged brown, with a minimal, quarter inch of head that retained fairly well throughout. Very light lacing, even when swirled, more of a smooth film coating.

S: I pick up on whiffs of dark cherries, oak, balsamic vinegar, and sweet malts.

T: Strong notes of balsamic vinegar (which seems to vary in intensity from draft, and the bottle) Also some tart cranberries & dark cherries, as well as some wine type notes & Acidity qualities. Alcohol is pretty well masked, as it is in nearly all Bruery beers.

M: light to medium feel, light to medium carbonation. Pucker tart intensity on the initial draw, but lighter on the finish.

O: Nice stuff, but I preferred the bottle, a bit mellower for me. The vinegar notes are a little too intense for me on draft, personally at least. Not that it is not a nice flavor, it is the style, but it made it a lot harder to pick up on a lot of the other flavors, and harder to finish. Perhaps with time the intensity will mellow, and more of the under currant flavors will come to the forefront.

Had a sip of this brew on-tap at Toronado, and was blown away by it. This is the review from the bottle I had a few days later.

Poured from 750ml bottle to wine glass.

A - reddish brown with one finger reddish white head. Lots of little chunks in the glass and on the lacing, which is good. Head retention is OK, not great.

S - Oak, chocolate, raisins, smoke. No hops to be found. The chocolate is a bit muted until the beer opens up, then it's all you can smell.

T - Doesn't exactly follow the nose. Almost some cherry flavor with a bit of vinegar and raisin. Very interesting and complex. Finishes with oak and tart astringency. Very nicely crafted.

M - At times velvety, but for the most part a bit flat on the carbonation. The finish lingers on your breath for a few minutes. Alcohol is well masked.

O - A great, complex beverage that I keep finding new notes and flavors with every sip. This is my first beer from the Bruery, and after this I'll be coming back.

Marrón Acidifié | 750 ml. | 8.5% ABV | 2011

Brewer: The Bruery & Cigar City Brewing
Style: Flanders Oud Bruin
Glass: Duvel tulip

An inscrutable mahogany body with a patchy tan ring of foam. Great lacing.

Deep woody notes that segue into an acidic, sour fruit aroma reminiscent of a lambic.

A wave of pucker-inducing sourness rolls in, immediately overwhelming the senses—lemon, orange peal, tart cherries, plum skins, and vinegar. I let it rock against my cheeks and I cradled it with my tongue, and it lept from sour to acrid. The mid-sip mellows out, calling forth woody notes and establishing a malty, leathery base. The aftertaste is mildly alcoholic, tannic, and it hints of tabacco.

Medium-bodied, with light carbonation, and a silky touch.

It is an Oud Bruin, so I expected sour (not my favorite taste). But while acetic and tart flavors dominate, I was pleasantly surprised by the malty backbone and woody notes that gave it unusual poise. Overall, it didn't suit my tastes, but I have to give the brewers credit for making a fine beer.

Would I get it again?:
No, but I'm glad I had it once.

Shared by schen9303. Poured from a 750ml capped bottle into a Darkness snifter.

A: Standard pour yields no head except for a slight ring of off-white, light brown foam atop a cloudy, dark, purplish-brown beer. No lacing. Rather shabby looking in all three aspects but not quite off-putting.

S: Nose is slight acetic sourness. Raspberry, sour cherry, and tart strawberries all in the mix though a bit muddled. Creamy and rather subtle overall. Pretty standard for it's style.

T: Appearance and smell don't do justice to the incredibly balanced flavor of this beer. Opens raspberry and cherry tartness. Slight acetic acid zing in the background. Creamy red fruit sweetness in the middle. Pleasant sour undertones throughout. Tart cherry puree at the finish. Aftertaste is more sour red fruit. Acetic acid presence is incredibly subtle and sour is just right.

M: Medium bodied with low carbonation. Oily and slick in the mouth and smooth and warm going down. Finish is wet and messy with a lingering, creamy aftertaste. Perfect. Absolutely no harshness and the smoothest offering in it's style I've had to date.

O: In my opinion, The Bruery and CCB are breweries built largely on the hype generated by the craft beer community. That being said, this beer is the real deal. Incredibly balanced flavor and magnificent mouthfeel, it's actually worth every penny of the high price. Seek it out!

750mL bottle at the Barley House poured into a snifter. Split with cjacobsen.

(A)- Pours a fairly deep and dark burnt sienna hue. Produced some minimal tan colored froth that dissipated down to froth. Some lacing.

(S)- A nice combination of a dry oaky sourness. Some vinegared-like dark fruits in there too, but mostly is a mildly funky, acidic oaky profile.

(T)- Similar to the smell. The fruits come through a bit more than the smell, but are supplemented well with the dry oaky acidity.

(M)- A nice mellow carbonation level. A great balance to it as well. The acidity is high, but goes great with the sour fruits and dry oaky background.

(D)- A great Flanders Oud Bruin. It would be interesting to see what some time will do to it, but this drinks great right out of the starting line so to speak. I would love to get some more, but I doubt more will come to this area.

1st off hooray, and yum. Ruddy brownish hugh with some red mixed in, a one finger milky tan head presents itself and leaves just the remnants of lacing. A generous swirl resurrects the head. Terrific aroma, fine tanned leather, dried cranberry and raisin, with nice vinous winey notes. Earthy and some musty basement, with just hints of barrel and nice high vinegar aroma. Vinegar hits the lips and the tip of the tongue. Sharp and acidic as it approaches mid palate. Then fruity plum, cranberry and raisin flavors. Leathery goodness with faint vinous tannic flavors. These assertive flavors are balanced by sweet chewy malts. Just a bit chalky and drying on the back end. Smooth but dry and slightly puckering. I am psyched on this one, to bad its so expensive, but I think another bottle is in my future.

Pours a dark, raisin brown with a beige head that reduces to a weird coagulation of head that sits atop the beer. Leaves lacing on the glass as well as the top of the beer itself. Odd

Smells of tart cherries and has a definite red wine appeal to it. The berry soaked oak comes through brilliantly. You can smell the acidity right away.

The acidic nature of the beer is straight forward with big tartness and a lemon-esque citrus sour to it. The cherry and berry fruits give it the sweetness but it definitely has that dark malt character to it that you don't usually get with sours. You can almost taste a bit of fresh white and red grape mixture in the front of that taste.

It's got a full body to it but it attacks the tongue due to the acidity of the beer. It lingers like that of a sour candy afterward.

It's a good, solid sour beer and glad I have some, but it's not earth shattering and worthy of trading your stock away. It's quite good for the style that it is and is definitely worth the try.

On-tap at Hopleaf for their Bruery takeover. Poured into tulip.

A - Pours a ruby red, off-white white fizzy head that reduces down to a few bubbles here and there around the edges of the glass.

S - Tart cherries, cabernet-esk wine notes, oak, nice sourness, and slight funk as it warms up a bit. Really dig the tart cherries and red wine notes...makes it smell big and bold, much like a Napa cab.

T - Sour/tart cherries, oak, slight funk. There's a dark fruity sweetness that also adds to my overall enjoyment of this beer. The tart/sweet combo is nice, and the oak notes round things out. The alcohol makes itself a little present as it warms, but really, it's pretty much hidden.

M - Light, drinks like a slighty carbed cabernet, semi-dry finish.

O - Really, a great Flanders. Right up there, if not better, then Red Poppy. Def glad I picked up some bottles and hoping they're as good as this was on-tap. Recommend!
