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.

UPDATED: OCT 1, 2009 Hazy brown with a lasting off-white head. Funky aroma, with lots of oak, brett, cherry and almond. Sweet caramel flavour with a berry and tannin tartness, lots of oak character, and a funky finish.

oh6gdx (25472) - Vasa, FINLAND - SEP 10, 2010
Bottled. Hazy amber colour, small slightly off-white head. Aroma is fruits, sour wood, some spices and mild farmyard. Flavour is fruits, sour wood, mild vanilla and some mild caramel. Though a short texted rating, very complex and rather nice sour beer, not all too far from the lambic sourness, although something slight lacks for that. A brilliant sour ale anyways!

kkearn (1165) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 8, 2010
Bottle. I initially sampled this at the Stockholm Beer & Whiskey fest in September 2009, then split a bottle with my cousin on one subsequent occasion. Pours murky brown, topped with a thin off-white head. Musty, very funky aroma with sour cherry and mild spice. Palate is similar to aroma with lots of musty, earthy character with notes of wild yeast, sour cherry, and wood. Finishes tart. Very nice.

Ungstrup (34696) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - SEP 17, 2009
Bottled. A hazy amber beer with a lazing tan head. The aroma has notes of brettanomyces, lemon, wood, lacto, wine - white? As well as lighter notes of malt and straw. The flavor is sour with strong notes of lemon, brett, lacto, white wine, and wood, but also with an underlying malt sweetness, leading to a very tart and slightly puckering lemony finish.
