COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Defined as "serving no practical purpose", the recipe for Otiose was developed during a rare break in the brewing schedule; a recipe we came up with to satisfy our own desires and nothing more. The result is a sour brown ale aged in oak barrels to which we added guava. Riddled with tropical notes which are balanced by it’s malty backbone, Otiose is a rich and decadent sour ale. 8.2%, Cellerable for up to 3 years.

Bottle thanks to Will. Pours a cloudy brown with medium beige head that leaves decent lacing. The aroma is oak berries and spice. Medium mouthfeel with light sourness and fruity malt. Very good

baraciisch (1880) - USA - OCT 21, 2013
Deep reddish brown in color... Aroma of caramel, oak, stone and tropical fruits, acidic tartness... Flavor is rich caramel, thick, oak, citrus and oak, hint of nuts, berries on finish... Hard to identify the guava, but I can imagine its there, tropical notes... Delicious ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Jesterdeal (1887) - Marlton, New Jersey, USA - SEP 18, 2013
Another cool sour from Bruery. Aroma is tart cherry, sour oak, and a hint of tropical fruit (just a hint). For the most part it pours like an Oud Bruin and smells like a kriek. Pours deep brownish red with a nice big frothy head (thank god). Taste is nice and tart with sour cherry, rich oak, caramel, and a biting guava grape taste. The fruit in here is VERY understated but it’s still an amazing sour brown. Would have this again.

Sample from 75 cl. bottle. Dark amber colour with a reddish tint and a lightly tanned head. Tart aroma with red berries, oak, caramel malts, tart fruits and yeasts. Taste is sour. Medium body with a lively carbonation. Finishes long lasting tart and dry. Excellent Sour Ale.
