The Bruery Rueuze

What the brewers say

“A blend of our sour blonde ale that has aged several months to several years. Notes of hay, barnyard funk, apricots, and olives play wonderfully with the balanced acidity.”

What our panel thought

Aroma: “Moderate sweaty horse Brett with a touch of acidity, touch of pineapple and strawberry, grape and grapefruit, and moderate apricot/peach. A touch of dry or late kettle hops. Notes of lemon tart candy.”

Flavor: “Moderate tartness up front with stone fruit (plum, peach, apricot, very light cherry), and a moderate Brett earthiness (but not bitter). Rich, complex fruitiness accented by high carbonation. Aftertaste is semidry with very enjoyable lacto sourness that’s balanced by enough malt flavor to create a nice, round impression on the tongue.”

Overall: “A thirst-quenching sour with pleasant balance between acidity and sweetness and a significant amount of stone-fruit flavor. This an easy-drinking, yet complex sour. Very well-done. Great sour notes up front with fruitiness of cherry, grapefruit. I love this beer. It’s pure, balanced sourness with great body.”
