COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
An ever-changing small batch blend that uses a farmhouse brown ale base with any number of herbs or spices carefully chosen by our brewers to make a wine-like and complex beer unlike any other. It’s barrel-aged for roughly one year and every vintage is different. Cellar for two to four years, depending on vintage.

’Paul takes a brown shower’ tasting at Bruce’s pad. Cheers Bruce! Hazy amber - brown beer, good pale cream coloured head. Nice fruity nose. mildly sour. Palate is soft and a little dry with fine carbonation. Soft malt, light and thin. Winey tone with nice generic fruits. Spot of sweet cherry candy. Minerally dry finish with a little spice. Very nice sour!

2011 bottle. Chestnut brown. Cloudy and agitated. Rummy. Woody, with a light chestnut aroma. Tart, and that doesn’t really go together with the brown ale character.
