Brune is a classic, refreshingly soured Flemish style brown ale in the Rodenbach tradition. A dark, copper-red, medium-bodied ale with subtle spiced sour cherry and woodsy notes. This beer has a pronounced tart sourness on the palate that follows through with complex, malty, and earthy vinous flavors.
This special brew was created by ageing our 9% ABV Jackhammer Old for a minimum of one month in a Gueuze-inoculated oak cask and then bottle conditioning for at least two months before serving. The blend of micro-organisms residing in the oak (lactobacillus, brettanomyces and Pediococcus) are responsible for creating the acids and esters that give this beer its enchanting sour flavors
