Bottle poured into a tulip glass
A - Pours a beautiful clear brown-tinged ruby color with about one finger of light brown head.
S - Lots of fruit in the aroma, with cherry and blackberry leading the way. Also a big lactic acid presence with no detectable acetic acid that is often found in Bruery sours. The fruit aromas are mostly on the tart side, though some sweetness comes through. Funk presence is pretty mild, but definitely there.
T - Similar to the smell, the is a big fruit presence. Jammy blackberries and tart cherry juice. Lots of lactic acid and a decent amount of funk. I love how the taste manages to be tart, fruity and creamy all at the same time. Maybe a touch of acetic acid, but lactic acid dominates the sour flavor profile. A mild oak presence as well. Very nice.
M - As mentioned about, a nice and surprising creaminess to the mouthfeel. Nice amount of carbonation, making it just a touch prickly.
O - Easily my favorite of the Bruery sours I've had, and one of the best American Wilds I've had as well. Great flavor profile and mouthfeel.

Thanks for opening this with me, JealousChalice!

Hazed auburn and bright ruby with a nice crown of off-white, persistent bubbles crowning the top, eventually leaving thin ribbons and dots of stick down the glass. Very pretty.
Bright, expressive, fruit-forward aroma (cherries, blackberry, and currants), along with quite a bit of acidic sour character, a little vinegar, and only a mild funk.
An incredibly flavorful beer: big fruit notes (cherry and blackberry), with a huge level of sourness, complementary vinegar, and a bit of funk.
Medium bodied with moderate-high carbonation. Very nice.
Perhaps The Bruery's best sour.

Auburn to brown appearance, mild head ring to it. Soft sour notes, seems more like a flanders than an american wild, pronounced woody notes to it. Had that funky thing that blackberries seem to produce that isn't the most agreeable to me, but the cherry allowed it to still be enjoyable.
Taste, sour, earthy grittiness to it. Seemed very similar to Marron Acidifie with the vinegar. A little bit of cherry with blackberry. Some caramel I'd guess. On the lower ebb of sour flavor for the Bruery. Did hide the alcohol quite well, a nice development. Pulled a little coconut out of this one later on.

A - Dark brown with cherry brown accents. Dark slightly hazy beer with a small white head
S - Lactic acid, lots of cherry, lemon peel
T - Tart cherry up front, orange peel and tart lactic acid balanced against a malty back bone that reminds me of a brown ale
M - Lots of carbonation with a tart dry finish
O - One of the best Bruery sour I've had with lots of sour cherry tartness
