4.03/5  rDev -2.4%

Medium brown in color, hazy, and has a thin might brown head that deposits ok lacing

A very sour note with just a hint of guavas. The oak barrel adds a driness to the aroma. Hard to pick up on the dates as the sourness is more prominent

Tastes dry and the oak is more pronounced. The guavas add a subtle sweetness and dates are still hard to pick up on. Finishes with a dry flavor of wood and fermented fruit

Medium to light body with lots of carbonation. Finishes dry on the palate and the woody aftertaste doesn't last long

Overall its a great wild ale but the dryness takes over and doesn't let the ingredients that ccb is known for to shine. Glad I got to try but this one has is more hype

Poured out a brown and almost purple like color, thin beige head to it, less than 1/4" thick. Aroma was all kinds of sour and off the beaten path fruit. What is that pink agave, pear and cedar wood? Works nicely.

Really got to feel the difference between this and the marron acidifie in the taste, whereas marron had more of the brown ale, vinegar and wet wood vibe going, this one leads fully with the fruit mouthfeel, it just takes a lighter and fruitier and better sour vibe, with tartness. Might be some cranberry as well to this. Its that kind of tartness, i.e., not much sugar, high pucker.

At The Bruery barrel tasting event

Pours a murky, amber to orange color with a minimal head of off-white foam. No lacing to speak of. Wood, red fruit and acidic qualities in the nose. Taste opens with big notes of oak followed by sour red fruit. There is a warming quality to the beer mid-palate. Some booze is detectable on the back end and the finish is semi-dry with a lingering sour fruit aftertaste. Medium body with a low level of carbonation. This is quite good. Not as sour as Oude Tart, which I prefer, but a nice take on a wild ale. Great sour fruit flavors and well masked ABV. Recommended.
