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.
