Deep ruby brown color with a finger of head and good lacing. Aroma of cherry skin and berries with a tart smell. Tart taste of unripe berries with a tartness that fades into a surprising roasted malt and chocolate flavor. Fizzy mouthfeel with light/medium body and high carbonation. Not too tart with a nice fruit flavor and unexpected chocolate. Interesting style I have never had before.

Tap at an event at the Burger Stand in Lawrence. The pour is brown with ruby highlights. I think Odell did a great job recreating a Oud Bruin, a little more sour than the average but still within limits. Has a pretty decent soft sour vinegar kick surround by a strong cherry flavor, and a general funk. A little too much acetic to make the cherry seem totally natural but still pretty good imitation. A nice tart kick at the back of the throat.

Gigantic thanks to Brett for hooking me up with this one! Dark plum/sepia color with vivacious white head that dissipates quickly but with good lacing. Nose and flavor bring, delightfully, present but low acetic acid, some lovely wild blackberry and raspberry character (not jam, but earthy and freshly picked), as well as tart cherry, pomegranate, greek yogurt, lactic tang, and hints of unripe plum. The booze is there on the palate, but it fits, and the carbonation is strong. Very solid.

Pours dark brown with a thick off white head. Aroma is sour apple and pear, vinegar, and red wine. Taste is tart and earthy with hints of sour fruit and caramel. Smooth but bubbly on the palate. Refreshing and intriguing.

Hits like a sour fizzy glass of merlot, but gets tamer as you go on. sourness is beaten by the intense wine flavor.prefect carbonation and great flavor.

UPDATED: DEC 17, 2013 Tap at Pracna. This must just hit me in the right spot, but I’m absolutely loving this. Dark pour with a creamy sticky head. Sour and tart cherry, chocolate, slight caramel malt. Soooo good.

Yo! Meddler is a great American version of a Old Brune from Belgium. Although a lot of sours get their heads chopped off this one had not enough head for me. It wasn’t overly sour on the palate and the wood was well balanced with the dark ale. I let this come to room temperature and it drank much better.

Tasted on 3/4/13 from a corked and caged 750mL bottle purchased at Sun Devil. Pours very dark brown with a thick tan head that slowly recedes to average lace, leaving messy lace residue along the inside of the glass. The nose is nice chocolate and caramel malt with a nice sour note underlying. The flavor is more sour than the nose, with plenty of bready caramel and dusty chocolate malt. The body is medium with lively, stinging carbonation, and a long sour and chocolate malt finish.
