4.33/5 rDev +2.6%
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.

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.

Thanks to Furley for this one, shared with Dan & co. Quick review from written notes.
Used a towel to get a grip on the cork, once it popped it foamed up a bit so have a glass at the ready. Murky reddish brown color, compact head of foam on the surface with a little bit of spotty lacing around the edges. Skim breaks on the surface after the first couple sips, lasting tan foam around the edges of the glass.
Cherry pits, yogurt, light woody funk in the aroma.
Sourness is a bit mild, creamy yogurty feel with evident lacto tartness, toasty malts, dry oak tannin lending a lingering light bitterness in the aftertaste. The full bodied creamy feel is probably the best aspect of this Oud Bruin. The wild funk and sourness is a bit restrained here, mildly tart but balanced overall. Could use more complexity. I enjoyed it and would recommend trying it, though it's not in my personal top ten for the style. Just not in the same realm as Dissident, Haandbakk, Oerbier Reserva, La Folie, etc. Looking like homerism and artificial "trade value" at work...

750 ml cork and caged bottle poured into a Bruery tulip.
40 IBUs, OG 23°P, 17 SRM.
A - After a tough cork pull (I use my teeth in these instances) Wee on the Lam pours a dark, murky raisin-hued brown color with a tight ivory head. Good retention for the wild funk within, the head leaves lacing clutching the glass as it dissipates.
S - A smooth malt body of the Wee Heavy underscores the wild funk aroma nicely. Sticky sweet caramel and dense breadiness provide just enough oomph behind the Brett funk that wafts out; plenty of barnyard funk takes over. Give this one a swirl to conjure up deeper toffee and mocha notes that work well with the beer's overarching oakiness.
T - Rich maltiness flourishes throughout Wee on the Lam, allowing the Brett funk to graze it's pastures openly. Toffee, mocha, and sweet caramel lay the groundwork and earthy oak compliments wonderfully while tart cherry skin, horse blanket, and a spritz of lemon finish out.
M - It's no surprise this beer is a bit beefier than most other wilds out there considering it's wee heavy base. Fairly full-bodied, a tickle of carbonation livens it up with a nice tart feel and twitch-inducing sour finish, though the overall impression remains balanced with sweetness.
O - I can't think of a beer I've had that embodies happy accident more than Wee on the Lam. Coming out of no where, this could possibly be the best O'so brew out there, and I enjoy plenty of 'em. Wee on the Lam tastes miraculously like a sour brown with it's deep malt complexity and nicely balanced sourness on the finish. Speaking of happy accidents; picking this up the weekend it was released while in central Wisconsin for Central Waters. Too bad I didn't get enough.

"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.
