COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Almost unhopped brown ale, the base beer for Morpheus Wild and Kerasus, undressed for the fans of the true "oud bruin" style.

I liked it better than the Morpheus itself. Tastes like some old, medieval beer. Almost unhopped, but still rather tasty.

330ml capped bottle gushed upon opening. Deep reddish copper color with tan head. Smells kinda sharp and acetic from the bottle, but out of the glass its much more rounded. More of a lactic sourness for sure. Ripe red berries, yogurt and hints of balsamic vinegar in both the nose and flavor. Intensely sour, but deliciously full fruitiness rounds it out. Would definitely buy again, especially considering the modest price.

Lowenbrau (1938) - Asturias, Oviedo, SPAIN - AUG 25, 2013
330ml bottle. Pours dark brown, hazy, with nice tan head, vanishing, poor lacing. Crispy texture, too high carbonation, light body. Taste is more into the sweet side, sour, berries, some caramel. Sweet aftertaste.

Pours chunky mahogany into a tulip. Creamy head with little retention recedes to nothing. Oak and cherry aromas. Chunky is right - not sure what that was but felt like cherry skins. Tart with summer pit fruit and vinegar front to back.

Thanks to bu11zeye for sharing this bottle. Dark red pour with a tan head. The aroma is full of grapes and toffee with some dark fruit notes. The flavor has some strong leather and tobacco notes as well as some grapes and dark fruit. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

ClubGonzo (4021) - Bergen, NORWAY - AUG 11, 2013
Bottle, shared with Bergen Beer Geek Tasting Crew. Pours a deep ruby-hued body with a small off-white head. Nose is red berries, wood, nutmeg, lactic sour notes and hints of dark malts and rhubarb. Taste is dark malts, rhubarb, sour lactic tones, wood, red berries and hints of lemon juice. Light to medium body, soft carbonation. A nice Flemish red from Alvinne.

Arve_Christian (3062) - Oslo, NORWAY - AUG 3, 2013
On bottle from Vinmonopolet Vika. Dark color, good foam. Let’s of fruity aromas, especially raspberries also notes of wood. Medium body & compexity. Very high sourness, some bitterness. Enjoyable

illidurit (2146) - Petaluma, California, USA - JUL 28, 2013
Pours a really rusty brown color with an orange-beige head. Aroma like a Flemish oud bruin, vinegar and sour cherry, lemon and brown sugar, cola and copper. Flavor is very quick -- it’s there and then gone, thanks to overly high carbonation levels which seem to push the beer right off the tongue. Malt vinegar, pennies, slight toasted malt, and a sour grapefruitish finish. Much better as it warms and the bubbliness subsides.

bottle - wow this beer is all wild yeast. Huge gumdrop sours, raspberry and figs. Huge lactic acid and slightly vinegary. Damn tasty, but I can see the controversy too
