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

Yves (2834) - Turnhout, BELGIUM - NOV 10, 2013
Black coloured beer with small off-white head and no carbonation visible. Malty red wine hinted aroma. Sour full sparkling palate. Finish is very sour and dry. A bit too sour.

Bottle. Pours deep brownish black with a medium, staying, frothy, beige head. Aroma has caramel, toffee, oak, raspberry, mild tartness. Medium, prickly carbonation, fine dry and a bit light mouthfeel. Flavour has soft tartness, oak, subtle red fruits. Apple zest. A bit thin but otherwise fine.

UPDATED: FEB 23, 2014 Sample at SBWF 2013. Smell of sugar and caramell. Sour taste with dark fruits. Re-rated after a glass from tap at Pressklubben in Stockholm.

Sur och fräsch. Något dämpad doft kanske. Lättdrucken och läskande. Monks på SBWF 2013

A true oud bruin right here, no joke. Muddy brownish pour with bits of sediment. Slightly nutty and dried grape, yet funked nose. Hints of dirt, lactic acid, brett, vinegar, and nuts on the palate, all blended quite well. You can really taste the no hop presence. Great brew!!

Mahogany color, tan head that disappears quickly. Sour malty raisin nose. Starts out with a little sourness which opens up to a bigger sour tart acidic finish. Tastes of cherries and moldy oak (in a good way). It’s the third time I’ve got this beer and I love it, very solid ould bruin.

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 (3207) - 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.
