Acidic sour brown beer. I like sour. I like (well, kind íer like) acidity. ...but sour acidity isnít that pleasant. It was too much in your face for me. A bit like drinking dilute battery acid. ...but thanks go to Harrisoni I for letting me try this one.

UPDATED: FEB 22, 2005 Very different from any beer Iíve ever had. Sour brown ale. Brown bour with a light tan head that laced very well. Underwhelming aroma thatís sour and spicy. Sour flavor with a finish that left my mouth dried out. Very reminiscient of the Devilís Horn without the raspberry finish.

Petrus Oud Bruin Pours dark brown with a thin tan head and good retention. Aroma is spicy caramelly, with dark fruits and some metal. Flavor is sour with some metal, dark cherries and woody undertones. Too sour for me to enjoy, but I did not pitch it. Not bad.

Brown colour, with medium brown head. Smell is lactic acid, absolutely wood, and some vinous notes. Taste is wood, leather, and again some lactic acid, but less than in the nose. Dry finish. Good.

Sweet full aroma, hints at the wild. Taste is sweet and full, not at all light. Very carbonated. Very dark red color.

Bottle at beerbistro. Brown, slightly sour, but also sweet. Iím not sure I was a fan of the sweet ending in a sour beer, usually the sour aftertaste is what I crave. Was not a bad beer, but not really my thing.

Bottle. A very clear brown with a foamy white head that diminishes to a thin film. Nose is sweet, a little doughy, a bit barnyardy, with a sour fruit tone. Flavor is light tartness carried by the effervescent carbonation alongside a medium sweet malt backbone. Reminds me of a very mild balsamic vinegar with its sweet/sour levels and balance. A pleasant brew, thought not particularly out of the ordinary for the style.

A nice strong head accompanies this ale as it is poured. It takes a long time to settle, too. A nice even brown color. A light touch of malt with a bit of a tart attitude assails the nostrils. The tartness is proved by the light sourness on the palate. A really nice easy drinking refresher of an aged ale.

SimonPatrice (312) - Montrťal, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 9, 2003
Brown with ruby hints, not much head. Oak, cherry, apples and cheese aroma. Woody flavor, a hint of caramel, and maybe some mushrooms. Tart but I expected a bit more because of the aroma. Thank you Todd for the beer and hospitality.
