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.

HuskerTan (1566) - Kearney, Nebraska, USA - FEB 28, 2016
Draft/Fest. A- Cherry, funky, slightly sour. A- Brown color, cloudy liquid, minimal head. T- Cocoa, subtle cherry. P- Medium body, gritty texture, average carbonation, unique finish. O- Not sure why this is retired as there are fresh bottles at a local bottle shop and I just had this on tap at a fest. A bit odd. Tasted almost gritty and had some chocolate/dry cocoa taste to it. Also looked like sewer water.

ajnepple (4897) - Denver, Colorado, USA - FEB 16, 2016
On tap at the brewery. Murky, deep, reddish-brown appearance with a tan head. Aroma of fruity esters (cherry/berry), caramel malt, vanilla, light toffee, oak/wood and light chocolate. Similar flavor, adding medium sweetness and a light tartness with a bit of earthiness and a hint of funk. Medium to full body with a lingering fruity malt finish. Pretty good overall.

neepsntatties (1717) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JUL 12, 2015
Bottle shared by Pavlov Badzewski. Colour...very cloudy, murky, dark brown with a corpulent light tan head. Nose...massively acetic and heavily fruity, especially with plums and dates. Palate...this was a foam snake when I opened it and the froth is still at the forefront! Flavour-wise there’s gobs of dried fruit here, again with the plums, but more like prunes. There’s tartness and sweetness all at once and a very plush feel all around. The finish is long and tartly/puckerly dry.
