3.47/5  rDev -14.7%
look: 4 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

750 mL bottle poured into a snifter.

Appearance - Deep brown body. Ample khaki head. Thick collar.

Smell - Hmm. Roasty malts. Lemony acidity. Some oak. The oak and heavily roasted malt aroma are very similar.

Taste - Pretty sour. Lemon sourness, but it's quickly cut by roasted malt. Kinda ashy. Coffee malts. Gets kinda bitter. Oak lingers in the finish.

Mouthfeel - High carbonation. Very roasty and bitter for the style. Ample sourness.

Overall - I expected the flavors to blend a little differently. It's not a sour stout at all. It's a very roasty lambic.

Le 1/8 de gueuze prend bcp trop le dessus sur les 7/8 restants, du coup ça a presque uniquement le goût de gueuze, on ne sent pas le goût de la brune, dommage

Pours a murky ruddy brown hue with a touch of lacing, smells of old leather, stonefruits, oak and a touch of honey, spritzy medium feel and tastes are light sour cherries, oak and finished with a sour bitterness cross of brett and stonefruit, overall def no stout but a delicious sour cheers.

I wasn't allowed to post this without writing this. As the numbers suggest, this beer just didn't hit its stride. Thanks for forcing me to write this, BA. Classy.

An interesting hybrid blend, it's reminscent of Flanders Oud Bruin without any acetic acid. Not so much a stout as a unique dark wild ale blend.

Pours a ruddy copper chestnut color with good clarity, creamy khaki foam that lasts a long time. Great retention, a head remains for the duration of the glass. Lacing coats around the edges. A sticky collar forms seamlessly to the surface after a second pour.

Pleasantly tart with leathery Brett around the periphery. Hints of clover honey in the aftertaste. Light maltiness, dry aftertaste with notes of straw and tart berries. A wisp of ashy roast is very minor, but present. Strangely there's an odd note of olive brine that surfaces after awhile, thankfully it's subtle. Medium bodied, smooth with ample carbonation.

Overall this was really unique, and I enjoyed it quite a bit. I'd like to know more about how they arrived at this type of blend to release, it reminds me of a cross between an Oud Bruin and the extinct Aarschotse Bruine which involved a blend of young and old beer also.

Poured into a lambic tumbler. Big voluminous eggshell colored head. Nose is largely lambic, musty and tart with a touch of sweet plum. Crisp and dry body. Note of cherry in the finish. The lambic portion of this beer seems to have taken over, which is likely a good thing.

Beautifully sculpted from La Rulle's sour brown ale and Tiquin's young lambic blend, the individual tastes intertwine into a taste that's just as seductive as the dance of Ginger and Fred.

With the dark sour pouring, its russet brown appearance is hazy, tawny and curiously of mauve. With that first whiff that breeches the glass, jaw tightening and salivating sensations quickly command the mouth. Sour plum, cherry and red grape carry faint balsamic, cider and lime acidity through the nose and then resonating with taste. Even with the subtle candied sweetness and dry caramel undertow, it is no matched for the sour balance.

With such dryness spreading across the middle, its citrus and stone fruit are awash with crabapple, dry cider and red wine- just shy of vinegar yet carrying a piquant sourness that's front and center thereafter. Weaving in the musken tone of mushroom, burlap and damp sod, the beer's rich balance to acidity comes on strong in finish and aftertaste.

Nearly bone-dry, its "brown" influence is hardly toasty, nutty or chocolaty enough to control the nosedive toward a sour finish of warhead and sour patch kid candies. But those earthen wafts and spicy alcohols and peppery phenols suggest something much more meant for the legal drinking crowd.
