Marron Acidifie is the first (of hopefully many) collaborations between The Bruery out of Placentia, CA and Cigar City Brewing out of Tampa, Florida. Both breweries are young, but have built a substantial almost cult following in their respective regions, and the word is spreading nationwide.
The style is an Oud Bruin Belgian, but The Bruery and Cigar City have managed to take the style to new heights with this complex and sophisticated sour ale. The nose on this beer is impressive, with balsamic vinegar, cherry, cranberry and smoky wood notes, and the flavor is even more impressive. The sourness is definitely the main flavor profile in this beer, however malt notes, and fruit flavors reveal themselves as well.
