Bruery Terreux 2017 Tart of Darkness

Tart of Darkness is a fun, different wild ale, perhaps best for those that don't like their sours all that sour. Sure, the wild-yeast tones and lactic acid lift is there, but it's grounded by a roasty, malty core, thanks to the dry stout-base style. It's surprisingly balanced throughout, with the bright acidity and rich malts playing nicely together. Notes of red cherry, plum, char, bittersweet cocoa and malted-milk ball flesh out the medium-weight palate. The finish is long and evolving, weaving back and forth between stouty goodness and vibrant, mouthwatering acidity. Lauren Buzzeo
