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

Appearance: Slightly cloudy light to medium brown color with a reddish purple tint. Thin light beige head head that subsided fairly quickly.

Smell: Sour citrus fruit aromas, tart cherries. and a hint of the guavas come through.

Taste: Sour citrus fruits, with the guava fruit coming through more than in the nose. Some very mild leather notes with the oak from the bal-aging coming through in a fairly dry finish. More tart than sour.

Mouth-feel: Fairly light bodied with a fairly low level of carbonation. It works but I can't help but wonder if a little more carbonation would help the nose sparkle a bit more.

Overall: The guava and date additions definitely distinguish this from the regular Marron Acidifie with a more tropical fruit nature. Sampled well after the hype at the initial release, I feel this is a very solid Wild Ale, which I wouldn't mind seeing released again.

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.
