COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Inspired by a resurrected style from the Flemish region of Belgium, The Meddler Oud Bruin is a blend of several generations of brown ales that were barrel aged for over 18 months. Wild yeasts, Lactobacillus, and Brettanomyces meddle with the beer creating complexity and depth of flavor. Intricate, yet balanced, The Meddler has an 8.9% ABV.

rougeau13 (2958) - Richmond, Texas, USA - APR 22, 2016
Tap at Yard House. Dark clear reddish-brown with very little off-white head. Aroma of sour fruit, funk, and a little barrel. Sourness is moderate; taste is otherwise lightly sweet fruit with a touch of barrel. Light-medium bodied; slick. Pretty tame.

Draft/Fest. A- Cherry, funky, slightly sour. A- Brown color, cloudy liquid, minimal head. T- Cocoa, subtle cherry. P- Medium body, gritty texture, average carbonation, unique finish. O- Not sure why this is retired as there are fresh bottles at a local bottle shop and I just had this on tap at a fest. A bit odd. Tasted almost gritty and had some chocolate/dry cocoa taste to it. Also looked like sewer water.

On tap at the brewery. Murky, deep, reddish-brown appearance with a tan head. Aroma of fruity esters (cherry/berry), caramel malt, vanilla, light toffee, oak/wood and light chocolate. Similar flavor, adding medium sweetness and a light tartness with a bit of earthiness and a hint of funk. Medium to full body with a lingering fruity malt finish. Pretty good overall.
