Scarlet brown beer with nice clarity. Touch of haziness. The inch and a half of head I mustered cropped back to a thin cap pretty quickly. Looks like an Oud Bruin.
Aroma seems fairly English, but with a lightly tart twist. Toasted grain, oxidized apple maltiness, toffee, light cherry, and sone distant acetic notes. Hard to say if I'd have guessed this was a sour by the nose.
Now, a lack of that aromatic sweetness. Sourness is here, yet still relaxed with some woody notes and briny acetic acidity. A little funked up, but no boasting umami mustiness. Apple is tart and green now, cherry is nearly absent; fruity elements from the nose have convoluted. Notes of wet straw and lemon pith are bright. Still toasty and offering some toffee tones. Light sour chocolate flavors. Not bad.
Medium-thin with some alkaline greasiness. Carbonation is entertaining me enough. Tartness isn't nearly as smacking. Want more.
Not sure exactly what I was expecting, but it was a little better than what this is. It's not bad, just doesn't have enough flair to convince me to drink American-style Sour Browns.
