3.7/5 rDev -7%
look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5
On tap at the Great Taste 2010
Pours a tan head. Color is a murky brown. Not the most appealing sour.
Aroma/Taste: Sour cherries, funk, tartness. It has a bit of medicinal flavors. Light oak flavors. The funk is very bretty.
Mouthfeel: Tart and funky. Medium bodied with a medium amount of carbonation. Ends with a medicinal flavor.
Overall, this was a decent sour, but I am beginning to release a lot of these sour browns/reds have a lot of similar flavors. They taste good, but they are becoming over populated. Decent drinkability.
Serving type: on-tap

Had this one twice as of late. 1st time 22oz bottle of the 2010 version for GABF (thanks, Kan!) and the 2nd time on-tap at the source. I'm going to review the 2010 version, since I enjoyed it much more.
A - Pours a ruby red color, mirky, some bubbles here and there, thin collar, off-white head.
S - A mix of sweet malts, lactic sour, slight tart, caramel, and a smokey/roast note that really took me by surprise. Not overly sharp and a nice balance.
T - The smoke, roast, lactic sour, and malts work decently well together. I'm not totally in love with this take on an Oud Bruin, but it's not too bad. Some tart cherries in there as well mixed with some leather. The smokey notes are so odd with the style, but I kinda like it.
M - Medium, light carbonation, tart dry finish.
O - An odd take on the style, but it kinda works for me. The 2011 version I had on-tap was quite different to the bottle and less enjoyable.
22oz bottle: 4/4/4/4/4
