4.33/5  rDev +2.6%
look: 4.75 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5

nice loud pop after the cork came out of the 750 C&C bottle.

poured into tulip glass.

Appearance: muddled murky brown bodied beer with 2 tall fingers of creamy tan head dropping down to a thin cap. Decent lacing on the side of the glass.

Smell: malty and mild to moderate tart cherries. Meaty, bacony, peat like smoke and fruity malt character. Oak barrel and earthy notes. Not getting too much funk here.

Taste: moderate cherry tartness with a nice oak note. Nice malty sweetness to balance these flavors that is remicent of a flander red or an oude bruin. Earthy smoke in the finish. This is a really unique beer. I havent tasted anything like this before!

Mouthfeel: medium bodied beer with moderate carbonation. really smooth and easy drinking beer. It got a surprisingly clean finish from the sour notes.

Overall: SLEEPER BEER! Sorry, looks like the cats out of the bag now. Oso's really made a nice beer here. I gotta say Oso's is the last brewery that I would have expected a really good sour to come from. Unique and memorable beer here! It joins a wee heavy scotch ale and a sour beer together very nicely. According to Oso's its a "Soured Scotch Ale" and that pretty accurate statement.

look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Date: 10/18/2013
Type: 750ml. Bottle
Vintage: Not marked, guessing 2012
Glass: Heady Stemless Glass

*Thanks to _Joe_ for getting me this one to sample, much appreciated brother!

Pours a brown mahogany in color w/ a 1 finger off white, slightly tan head that left medium amounts of lacing on the glass. Aromas of cherry pie filling, cherry skins, leather, oak, funk, and acidity. The flavor was of cherry pie sweetness quickly transitioning to very tart cherry skins, and ending w/ leather, oak, and bitter hop bite. Medium bodied and lush w/ higher end carbonation. Very drinkable and I had no problem finishing the 750ml. bottle myself.

Overall, awesome accidentally created Oude Bruin! I am glad _Joe_ sent me another bottle for the cellar.

Big thanks to Jeff for this one. 750ml corked and caged bottle into Tired Hands stemware. Shared with schen9303.

Pours a foamy 3 finger light cream colored head with moderate retention. Beer is a dark, almost opaque mahogany. Lacing is spotty, stringy, and sparse with average stick. Solid.

Nose is sour cherry and raspberry. Brett presence along with alcohol stings and tickles the nose. Acidic with a slightly sweet vinegar presence. Aromatic and enticing.

Opens tart cherry and raspberry. Hints of vinegar, sour cherry, brown sugar, leather and oak in the middle. Moderately creamy too. Vinegar and mild acidity towards the end. Finishes tart, foamy and tanic. Sour fruit aftertaste. Nice.

Light bodied with medium carbonation. Prickly and tingly in the mouth and goes down dry and sticky. Finishes messy with a lingering aftertaste. Supports the flavor well.

I'm not the biggest fan of the Flanders style but I can certainly appreciate a well-made representation of it. That is what Wee On the Lam is. Certainly worth a try.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

"Re-fermented with Brett Lambicus." 40 IBUs. 23 Plato OG. 750ml brown glass bottle with hood-and-wire cap over a cork served into a Guinness goblet in me friend's gaff in high altitude Castle Rock, Colorado. Reviewed live. Expectations are high given its current ratings.

Served cold. Side-poured with standard vigor as no carbonation issues are anticipated.

A: Pours a 2.5 finger khaki colour head. Nice creaminess. Nice thickness. Retention is great (~6 minutes). Little lacing.

Body colour is a nontransparent ruby-brown. Yeast particles are visible. No bubble show.

Appearance is generally good for the style. Real excited to try this.

Sm: Smells like apple pie. Nice sourness. Good caramel malt body/well balanced body. Oak. Good sourness. Some bready malts. An aroma of moderate strength.

T: Apple pie notes. Bready malts. Cherry. Caramel. Nice sourness. Pie crust. Balance is excellent. No alcohol comes through. I do get some sour yeast; lacto and lambic. Nice complexity and subtlety. Really flavorful and good.

Mf: Smooth and wet. Good thicknesss. Lightly acidic. Complements the flavour profile well.

Dr: Drinkable and enjoyable. I'd definitely get it again. Hides its ABV well. A nice brewski from O'So Brewing Company.

B+
