3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft @ Milly’s. Name on blackboard was marked without the “smoke” in front of sour brown. Got absolutely no smoke in nose or flavor. Darker brown color, some red hues. Small off-white head with good retention. Carbonation was normal. Nose is moderately acidic with over ripe berries and some light oak. Taste follows nose with backbone of malt. Dry texture with a medium body. I like were the brew master was going with this one. I didn’t have time to ask if he used any bugs in this beer. It was a bit more tart then sour. I didn’t really get any Brett from it. Decent.

Brown pour with a thin white head. Cherry and dark fruit acetic acid notes give way to bready toffee and a toasty finish. Reminiscent of a Flanders oude bruin, but the malt character is a bit off. Medium body with low carbonation and a tart finish.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Served on cask into a pint glass. Saw no mention of this beer online or in the menu, just the beer name listed on a sign above the bar claiming that it was on cask. This beer is very reminiscent of a flanders oude bruin.
A - Dark brown/reddish body. A small off white head formed and quickly fizzled away to absolutely nothing. A swirl produced some lace/bubbling but that quickly fades as well.
S - Spiced cherries, lactic acid, slightly roasty caramel malt.
T - Very faintly smoked malts followed by some cherry like fruit flavors. This is accompanied by an abrupt acetic sour finish. Somewhat dry and crisp. Mouth feel was medium with low carbonation,
O - Not a bad beer, pretty refreshing. I’m not sure if this uses any critters, but its certainly sour and acetic. The smoked aspect is very faint and almost unrecognizable though.
