COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Zuur – or Sour – is our collaborative Flemish sour brown ale. A beer whose style arises from the mists of brewing history. It uses mixed fermentation, real fruit, significant aging, and master blending. All of these are ancient and revered Belgian techniques. This unique Flemish sour brown ale is complex, tart with a touch of sweetness, lightly malty and gently hopped. Zuur is a unique blend created in collaboration between Brewery Ommegang and Brouwerij Liefmans

750 mL bottle from Sam’s in Durham. Brown pour with purplish highlights and a foamy light khaki head. Aroma is lightly tart cherry, lemon zest, and oak. Taste is mildly tart. Cherry is present but not over-bearing. Just a touch of apple cider vinegar is detected on the finish. This beer does nothing particularly spectacular or new, however it is still a fantastic sour. A great collaboration beer from Ommegang and Liefmans.

Aroma:The smell has some sour balsamic vinegar notes. Appearance:Dark brown in color. Good head, light beige in color. Taste:Mildly sour, not too harsh. The sourness fades almost immediately, so that by the midtaste most of it is halfway gone. By the aftertaste, it’s a memory. There are also fig and prune flavors in this beer. Palate:Nicely carbonated, medium body. Overall:A fantastic example of it’s type for those of us (like me) who are sensitive to sours. It’s refreshing, and actually sessionable.

Chalsk (1104) - North Caldwell, New Jersey, USA - JUL 30, 2010
On tap at Monk’s. Excellent selection by Leafs93 as we celebrated his completion of the NJ and PA bar exams. Pours a reddish brown color with a caramel colored head. Has a gentle vinegar aroma. Sweet with a malty sourness. Sours are subtle. Very smooth. Faded cherry notes throughout. Excellent collaboration by two excellent breweries.

Smells like sweet and sour sauce from McD’s. Deliciously tart - not too strong. Good beginner beer for people wanting to get into sours. Me, though, I’m a pro.

Bottle. Tart nose with light fruit. Cloudy with crazy amounts of sediment. Nice restrained sourness and funk with a dry finish. Tangerine and cherry notes. Very tasty.

Bottled, poured into La Maudite snifter. Dark brown pour, dense tan head. The nose is intense, sour wild cherries. The flavor is overwhelmingly malty, with a burst of sour cherry. Very tart, with a refreshingly dry finish.
