"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+

Thanks to GRG1313 for sharing this one at his tasting.

Pours a murky orange-brown with a foamy khaki head that settles to a partial film on top of the beer. Small streaks of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is sour, tart, and funky with malt, fruit, and wood aromas. Taste is much the same with fruit and wood flavors on the finish. There is a medium amount of acidity on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp and medium bodied mouthfeel. Overall, this is a good beer that is tasty and easy to drink.

(Note: personal scoring system is in whole numbers only)

750ml bottle poured into my CCB snifter and based on my paper notes, consumed 2 days ago on 3/1/2013

Aroma: Nice! A decent bit of oak and wood with quite a bit of tart cherry pie-ish funk. You know there's something off about it, as on the label calls it 'funk' and I expect that smell. It's a nice combination of flavor, but I don't get much from the malt at all. (4)

Colour: Muddy red and brown body, rather fizzy looking on the side of the glass. Pours with a nice bit of white head that fizzes down quickly. Lacing is present especially when swirling but doesn't really contribute to overall appearance. It's actually quite the interesting looking beer, but I can't remember having a sour brown before. (4)

Flavour: Here's where you notice more of the malt that you don't get in the nose. There's some caramel, toffee hints throughout, but overall its dominated more by the deep oak tones and Brett funk manifesting itself as predominantly cherry tart flavours. I've never tasted anything like this before and I have nothing to compare it to. As an unique beer, it definitely makes for an interesting tasting experience, and it grows on you after the first few sips. I would liked it to have had some more malt contribution as the base is a Wee Heavy, though. (4)

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied beer, lots and lots of carbonation. Aftertaste is dry with a nice oaky twang. (4)

Overall: Unique beer, especially in light of the circumstances that led them to produce this beer. As I've been drinking more sours lately, I have some idea of what I like out of my sours and what I don't. Here, the oak contribution complements the sour cherry Brett funk really well. I would have expected more contribution from the Wee Heavy, but well. The first sip made me go "wtf?" but the ones that come after that get even better. Worth trying at least once for anyone who can get these, and I'm definitely glad I was able to share a bottle with the SWMBO. (4)

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...
