Sour Brown is a brown ale which has spent 9 months on oak barrels. These barrels typically have lots of funny microbes hidden deep inside the wood. These do weird things with beer over time. This beer is slightly sour and refreshing. Have it with your favourite veggies or aged cheeses. Serve at 8 degrees C.

25 cl bottle from Vinmonopolet. Batch 760. Pours deep brown with a large large fluffy brown head. A bit sour aroma with notes of wood. Light body, soft carbonation and a bit sour woody taste to this strange beer.

Opaque dark brown beer, good pale tan head. Palate is airy, dry and has reasonable carbonation. Modestly sour dried fruits, touch of Flemish Red sourness. Light finish. Fine.

Rating #1852 - 2015.08.10 - Bottle from CBI - Hazy reddish brown pour, medium white head. Aroma is super bretty, lots of yeast on the nose - oak barrel evident, vanilla, sour peach, wildflowers, honey, soapyness. Mouthfeel is clean, medium carbonation. Quite complex, the sourness is tempered with a fair amount of body, and lots of tart fruity esteric notes. Nice sour/bruin.

Aroma is musty with vinegar and apple cider dominating and very sour with oak coming through in the background. Tarty, fruity with some fruitiness like from raisins and cherries but mainly a farmhouse wild yeast aroma. Flavours are very sour in the beginning and lead on to some brown ale tones of slight bitter chocolate and coffee with a bitter dry finish.

Bottle from Cunningham, huge thanx!
Pours murky brown, nearly black with a huge off-white head. Smell has freaky sour notes with some nice dark malt notes. Starts refreshing sourish, well paired with roasted malts and some coffee. Middle part is absoluteley dominated by the acidity, which pairs perfect to the rest of the aromas, which are roasty, malty and slight chocolatey. Goes into a mild sourish finish with lovely roasted and chocolate malts.
