COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The “Old Time” series is a collaboration with The Charleston Beer Exchange. The base beer (a Belgian-style strong dark ale) for all four Old Times was originally brewed in July 2011, then aged in a variety of oak barrels, some with and some without a blend of brettanomyces, lactobacillus, and pediococcus.

Funky Old Time was aged for 18 months in two American oak red wine barrels with wild yeast/brewing bacteria.

Bomber. Poured a murky dark brown with a medium-sized tan head. Lots of nice lacing. Aroma and flavor were sour fruit, plums, cherries, light apple, some roasted malt, moderately acidic, quite sour and funky. Wood and vinous notes were quite restrained, particularly given how long it aged. Medium mouthfeel; soft carbonation. Very complex; great balance between all the elements. I want to try the rest in the series!

Bottle... This beer rocks!… Deep ruby pour with no head. This looks like red wine – no varietal or region in particular. The nose offers a mélange of white oak funkiness accompanied by cherry and grape Kool-Aid fruitiness. Medium-bodied with modest carbonation. The flavor furnishes tart, fruity, purple grapes, black cherries, woodiness and a mild measure of tannic bitterness. Fruity, Sweet-Tart aftertaste. Kudos to ctipping for sharing this gem!

Pours completely flat with no carbonation or head. Dark reddish brown. Nice funky, oaky aroma. Lack of carbonation makes for a flat mouthfeel. Extremely complex flavors; oak, funk, dark fruit. Fairly acidic finish, but with nice hints of vanilla and red wine. Dry finish.This is a unique and complex beer, and definitely something any fan of sours should try. The lack of carbonation is really the only knock I have on this beer.

Thanks Burg! Amber pour, light head. Nice a sour, but not crazy sour. Some cherry notes, a bit of balsamic and leathery notes. Quite tasty.

Another winner from Westbrook. Thanks to the dude at RRBS who brought five or so different beers from this brewery that were all awesome and that i had not had. Funky, oaky, dry and delicious.

UPDATED: JUL 27, 2014 Bottled 2/19/130 at Edmunds Oast. Ruby head pour with a thin white head. Aroma of lactic sourness, red wine, brandies plums, cherries, wood and tart citrus acid. Almost still carbonation, very similar with a Hannsens style to it, sour cherry, stone fruits, rain, lactic acid with some bitter tannins. Pretty solid.
