4.14/5 rDev +2.5%
Poured from 2012 bottle into teku,
Roughly 1 year in the cellar
A: Rich brownish red with a fluffy off-white head. Carbonation is apparent from rising bubbles.
S: A tinge of sour on the now, but mostly vanilla and oak.
T: Tart up front. Disappointingly no guava in the taste, but I assume that it's faded with a year on this bottle. As it warms up lots a warm vanilla and tobacco. The barrel characters really shine nicely in this beer.
M: Like most The Bruery beers, great mouthfeel. Loads of fizzy carbonation without overpowering. Smooth, barrel character leaving a fruity tart aftertaste.
O: I really enjoyed this beer. At first I was expecting more tart along the lines of Oude Tart but with a year in the cellar this beer has really transformed into a nice oak aged sour with refreshing tartness but still lots of barrel character, esspecially as it warms up. The tobacco and vanilla and oak take over nicely.

Enjoyed with my 2 brothers and sister-in-law.
A: A dark brownish red with very little head around the edge.
S: Smells of fruit and a little funk. Not quite sure what fruit...
T: Fruity and then instantly tart. The Guava isn't really noticeable. I can't quite pick it out.
M: Medium bodied with the right amount of carbonation.
O: I enjoyed it. I wouldn't seek it out, but I thoroughly enjoyed it.

750 ml bottle. Pours dark reddish amber with a creamy off white head that retains well and laces the glass.
The aroma is sweet and sugary acidic sourness with some fruit.
The flavor is sweet sugary malts with some fruity tartness. There's quite a bit of acidity and some wood and some mouth-puckering sourness in the finish. The mouthfeel is medium bodied with smooth carbonation.
Overall, a nice sour. A little too sweet for me.
