COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Inspired by a resurrected style from the Flemish region of Belgium, The Meddler Oud Bruin is a blend of several generations of brown ales that were barrel aged for over 18 months. Wild yeasts, Lactobacillus, and Brettanomyces meddle with the beer creating complexity and depth of flavor. Intricate, yet balanced, The Meddler has an 8.9% ABV.

Draft sample. Brown in colour with medium carbonation. Aromas are of toasty malt, some booze, and some fruity sake/port like notes. Contiunes with fruity and malty notes in the mouth before developing a nice sour twang on the finish. Not overly complex, but fairly tasty.

Suttree (5120) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - NOV 11, 2012
Murky brown, loose white head. Winey, Oaky aroma, with a whiff of apple. Flavor is lots of red wine, with oak and apple and some citrus. Insanely drinkable, especially for 9%.

MadDogMD (213) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - NOV 8, 2012
Bottle. Nose of slight sourness, caramel maltiness, leather. Flavors follow similarly w/ more tartness than expected. Solid malt backbone w/ interesting vinous characteristics, good lacto creaminess & a good sour bite. Definitely going to get more of this!

Nice lactic Tannic berry aroma. Also sour wood aroma. Nuanced. Brown red with white brown head that imparts a slightly cool color. Slick nutty brown that quickly becomes Tannic and wine like turning to lactic sourness late.

theisti (3210) - Leawood, Kansas, USA - NOV 5, 2012
~10 oz draft at Martin City Brewing Company. The pour is hazed brown with some ruby around the edges of the glass. The head is tan and lasting. Nice, thick coat of lace left behind as the head falls. The aroma is softly sour vinegar, nice full black cherry fruit, and light wood funk underneath that. The taste is soft acetic vinegar blended nicely with the natural black cherry fruit. The wood and funk is present in the long finish. The palate is medium to light bodied, soft natural carbonation, nice sour black cherry long finish. Nice.

Big thanks to Blake for sharing this last night. Dark brown color with a fluffy head. Big aroma hints of sour funk, vinegar and slight mustard seeds. Pretty damn sour flavor as well, funky and tart. A real gem in my eyes.

beernbourbon (1297) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - NOV 3, 2012
Tap at Soha. Pour is cloudy deep brown with a small off-white head. Aroma is sour cherry, wood notes, earthy notes, and faint spiced cream. Flavor is loaded with wood, caramel malt, light spice, an odd dill flavor and a bitterness on the back of the tongue. Full flavor. Complex. Interesting.
