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.

CaptainCougar (7133) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - MAY 11, 2013
Bottle shared by BeerandBlues2: pours a clear deep amber mahogany with a spotty-lacing off-white head. Has a lightly sweet toasted dark caramel nose with lots of tart cherries and vinous oak. Starts with good effervescence and sweet biscuity malts with good amount of vinous tartness and oaky complexity before a drier slightly puckering finish. True to style and very enjoyable.

AndyReynolds (1085) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - APR 28, 2013
Bottle thanks to Chris met at DLD. Aroma is sour for certain, tart fruit with some yeast and malts in there. Palate is incredibly easy drinking almost making one forget it is a sour. Complex beer.

beerbastard (841) - Mesa, Arizona, USA - APR 27, 2013
Caged 750 bottle. Pours a dark chestnut. Aromas are a nice balance of woods and tart cherries. Sweet and tart like flavors of well blended woods and sour cherries, like a red wine. Has a long dry finish. May lack a little complexity, but I really like it. A pleasant surprise. I will buy more.
