Epic Bruery sour/wild tasting, 3/4/2012

Pour out red-brown, looking very flat, no head. Earthy, leathery aromas. In the taste, I'm getting guava, strawberry, and blueberry. Medium carbonation and linger. Definitely an improvement over Marron Acidife.

Purchased at the Bruery for cellar reserve sale

Shared w/Retsinis

App- A weird looking color. Had a caramel brown note with a little gold and a little purple. No head to it, no cling either. A couple bubbles on top, about it.

Smell- It smells nice and less vinegar than I was anticipating which was nice. Seemed to be a one sided sour note without bringing the oak or guavas or dates in. A little bit of citrus but hard to pick out what fruit it is (Wasn't guava)

Taste- The flavor profile on this was very nice. A good layering of flavors with a subtle oaky flavor 1st, then the date flavors come in bring a small subtle astringent note and finally the guava. Each flavor isn't over the top but well balanced. It was a good beer but wasnt better than Marron or Zuurman.

Mouth- A light medium bodied beer with a lighter medium carbonation. Some bubbles on the residual flavors but not much. Leaves more of a date flavor with some sour.

Drink- Was the price worth it today? I think so. I didnt have to trade for it and it was on the way home. I love the Bruery. This was a good beer with some nice flavors.

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
