The Bruery Marrón Acidifié
From The Bruery – An Imperial Oud Bruin developed from a mutual love of classic Belgian technique blended with modern American ingenuity. Spending over a year in barrels, both bourbon and wine, has left this dark sour ale layered with notes of cranberries, tropical fruits, leather and aged balsamic vinegar, balanced by wood tannins and roasted malt.
The Bruery in Collaboration with Cigar City Brewing – The Bruery Marrón Acidifié – 750 ml. bottle poured into a goblet. 8.5% abv. From The Bruery Provisions Orange, CA.
Appearance: Pours a pulpy dark maroon with no head. Leaves behind pulp and a brown coating on the glass.
Aroma: Huge bouquet of fresh fruit. Cherry, plum, fig, funk and oaky wine barrel.
Taste: Sour cherry, earthy bitter fruit pit, tannic barrel, dark chocolate. Finishes tart, fruity and tannic.
Mouthfeel: Full bodied, chunky.
Overall: A wonderful, well made sour ale. Very complex with great flavor and textures. I don’t know how this beer could get any better, but I am going to do my best to save a bottle for a special occasion.

I agree that Marrón Acidifié is one of the best sour ales that I have ever had. Kudos to The Bruery and Cigar City for pulling it off!
