Bottle shared by Bob - thanks! Murky orangish brown pour with a smaller head. Super interesting! Brown ale / scotch ale elements, but they are in the background versus the Bretty sourness. Really flavorful.

On tap at the Malt House prior to The Great Taste. Wow this one surprised me and was fantastic. When Oso scores big they hit it out of the park. This one is top notch in every way!

Tap at GTMW. Big surprise. Unfiltered brown. Big vinous ( rotten egg undertones) sour aroma and flavor. A touch more lactic, sour, and brutally unrefined than a Belgian, but damn nice too. A sour beast. Enjoyable.

On tap at Stubby’s. Ruby copper with a thin tan head. Aroma is sweet and sour at the same time with wild yeast, toffee, oak and mild fruit. Taste of oak, bretty yeast, toffee, darker fruits, some cherry. Finishes moderately dry.

madvike (2906) - Middleton, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 21, 2012
On tap at Malt House - Pours dark ruby brown. Sour cherry on the nose, with yogurt, cheese, and medium tartness. Taste is lots of cheesy cherry yogurt, and mild tartness. Big, thick body with real smooth carbonation.

It does has more than brett in it. This seemed like a pretty classically done Oud bruin. Sour, acidic, proabbly a medium to high sourness. It is smoothe though, big oak and vanilla notes go with the sourness well. It isn’t complex and subtle but it is damn sour and tasty.

TheAlum (5909) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - AUG 13, 2012
Draft pour on tap at GTMW 2012 (Madison, WI). Pours a richer deeper brown copper hue, some glow, deep haze, frothy tannish head atop stays as a mellow layer, laces ok. Aromas are some sour cherry, bits of toffee, mellow vinegar, touch of oak. Nice sourness, not acidic as touches of oak, red wine vinegar, sour cherries give life. Initial is lighter end of medium good tart sour element. Sour cherries, vinegar, oak. Touch of biscuit, straw, and funk. Really nice and balanced yet still an assertive sourness into the middle. Backend is lingering vinegar, red wine, oak, and sour cherry. Really simple Oud Bruin sour but really well done.
