COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Zuur – or Sour – is our collaborative Flemish sour brown ale. A beer whose style arises from the mists of brewing history. It uses mixed fermentation, real fruit, significant aging, and master blending. All of these are ancient and revered Belgian techniques. This unique Flemish sour brown ale is complex, tart with a touch of sweetness, lightly malty and gently hopped. Zuur is a unique blend created in collaboration between Brewery Ommegang and Brouwerij Liefmans

750 ml bottle thanks to Dallas. Pours a dark brown color with a medium white head. A big sour cherry nose with brown malts, caramel. Very low sourness, sweet dusty malts, easygoing, finishes quite dry and some vinegar. Good.

750ml bottle $14. I like Ommegang beers but sometimes I don’t like springing for the more expensive offerings, this was an exception. Dark red-brown color, looks a little oily on top. Smells like a sour oud bruin, not bad. The taste is cherries, sour, good but it actually made me think about how much I like DeProef’s Zoetzuur and how much better of a beer that is for a dollar or two less. now I have to find some Zoetzuur, thanks a lot Ommegang!

JStax (2857) - Devola/Marietta, Ohio, USA - JUL 7, 2012
Poured on draft. Pours a translucent brown with a whitish head of thin foam. Aroma is mildly tart. Can’t really pick up on much else, though. The sourness in this beer is odd. Its actually a little earthy. Maybe its more of a musty note than anything else. Taste is sour and the finish is long and dry. Everything about this beer is pretty subtle.

750mL Bottle, purchased at Kingstown Liquors - Wickford, RI. Aroma is a gentle, breezy fruit, with a light lactic punch and an afterthought of cherries. This is soft and a little light. There’s a low level balance of sugars, gentle acid, and a range of fruit flavors. Decent malt follow up. Overall, I though this was a little light, safe, and domesticated for a Flemish sour brown style.

750ml bottle - Pours dark amber with a two finger light tan head. The smell is of sour cherries and wild yeast funk. It tastes sour, fruity, tart, but also has a smooth sweetness to it. Very good brew.
