COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Editor’s note: 428 bottles of 37,5 cl made.

Danish: En sur Belgisk Brune øltype på 6,5% alk. Basis øllen var en Belgisk Brune brygget i september 2008 af Master Brewer Class 08/09 fra den Skandinaviske Bryggerhøjskole. Den færdige øl har lagret på Spanske Tempranillo fade med flere typer af Brettanomyces og Lactobacillus. Resultatet er en balanceret sur og ekstremt kompleks, rund vinøs øl, med duft af eg og hestedækken, suppleret i smagen af malt - og karamelnoter, der afsluttes af en ren, sprød og frugtig eftersmag.

English: a sour Belgian style brown ale. The base beer was a Belgian Brune, brewed in September 2008 by the Master Brewer Class of 2008/09 at the Scandinavian School of Brewing. The finished beer was then allowed to age for 10 months in a Spanish Tempranillo barrel with multiple strains of Brettanomyces and Lactobacillus, resulting in a pleasantly sour, extremely complex, smooth beer with significant oaky, winey and barnyard flavours. Malt and caramel notes on the palate and a clean, crisp and fruity finish.

Hansen (6572) - Assentoft, DENMARK - FEB 19, 2010
Has a real good aroma, fruity acidic, malty, bread, faint almond notes too. Flavor starts good, sweet, but then it gets unpleasent, to much contrast to the sweetness, heavy acidic, moderate bitterness.

Maria (10136) - Thisted, DENMARK - JAN 31, 2010
It’s hazy, almost unclear red mahogany and the head is huge and creamy. The aroma is fruity and sour with notes of berries, wood, caramel, brett and citrus peel. The flavour is fruity and sourish with a light sweetness and notes of brett, lots of citrus peel, caramel, it’s vinous, and the finish is slightly dry and refreshingly fruity. It’s a really nice sour.

ante (3374) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - JAN 24, 2010
Bottled. Pours out in a warm deep hazy amber colour with a low thick white head. Dryish crisp aroma of brett, lemon, dryish white wine, red currant, black cherries and mild caramel. Medium-bodied with acidic notes of roasted malts, balsamic vinegar, white pepper, immature raspberries, wood, salty licorice and mild caramel. Long dryish finish of brett, lemon-rind, white pepper and wood.

VTHopHead (1511) - Barre, Vermont, USA - JAN 16, 2010
Tasting with Shaun Hill at Three Penny Taproom - Poured a darkish amber in color with a small off-white head that hung around to produce a small amount of lacing on the glass. Aroma was roasted malty with fruits (grape, raisin), a hint of red wine and and medium tartness. Flavor is of roasted malts, red wine, sour fruit and berries. Medium sour. Clean, crisp finish. Really good...

bierkoning (10159) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - JAN 4, 2010
Bottle, brought by Jeppe. Brown color. Soft caramelly aroma with sherry notes and a hint of milk chocolate. Oaky flavor with sherry and caramel. Notes of citrus and leather. The aroma is OK. The beer is quite complex, but the flavors do not coincide well. Nevertheless a fine and interesting beer.

DonMagi (5596) - bantervile, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - NOV 16, 2009
Bottle had in the rake thansk to the brewer for leaving the samples. Alround rating: Caramel brown sugar sweetness, fairly fruity and woody, the sourness is fairly restrained but keeps it interesting and fairly tasty.

Sigmund (5024) - Tau, NORWAY - NOV 15, 2009
375 ml bottle, kindly shared by my beer pal Olav, who bought it at Nørrebro Bryghus. "Limited Release No. 2", ABV 6.5%. Hazy brown colour, big to moderate beige head. The aroma has some sourish fruity notes, hints of red wine vinegar, some malts too. Fairly sour flavour, some funky and malty notes.

ricke (476) - Malme, SWEDEN - NOV 3, 2009
A murky brown beer, very hazy and lots of sediments. A small off-white head that leaves some lacings. Definitely not a pretty sight. The nose is dominated by funky brett and aromas of oak barrels. Hints of tart fruits and vanilla and caramel malts. The taste is mildly sweet with a nice tart complement. Again, funky brett and oak barrels dominate the aromas. Notes of malts, caramel and tart cherries and red currants. The finish is mildly bitter and dry with some tart fruit notes and brett. Moderate body, slightly oily texture. This is quite far from the Belgian originals of the style and I think it drinks more like an American sour ale than a Belgian Oude bruin. Not a letdown, but still not as good as I had hoped for. Bottle.
