Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: jwc215 on 06-16-2007

Our Oud Bruin is firmly in the East Flanders tradition. We used American 2-row barley and German melanoidin malt (for red color) as well as maize (to lighten the body). The wort was simmered in the kettle for 24 hours and then hopped lightly with English Kent Goldings for balance.

We fermented with a Flemish blend of yeast and bacteria cultures, including lactobacillus, pediococcus, and brettanomyces. It took six months at cellar temperature for the culture to achieve the style’s characteristic quenching sourness. Finally, we bottle-conditioned the beer according to the “methode champenoise,” so it, too, can be laid down, to be brought out when it can be truly enjoyed.

4.75/5  rDev +41.8%

Amazing ! Dark in color, a deep copper with reddish hues. Clear, yet thick. No haze, no floaties, just deep rich color. A decent foam head that fades a little quickly, but leaves a trace of lacing. The malt aroma is great, sweet, with very mild hops aroma. Flavor is rich and malty, some darker grain, good hop balance - more would destroy this beer. Almost has a creamy element to it. Mouthfeel is smooth with good texture. No bite, carbonation is perfect. I love this beer ! This brewery never fails to impress. The beer has a good alc content without any of the "winey" off flavors, twang or sourness. I could drink this all night -might regret it later with the 6% and 22oz bottles, but damn it is good !

Purchased from Poplar Wine & Spirits in Casper for US$10.50.

Pours from 32oz waxed and sealed swing top bottle (bottled Apr 22 3007) a cloudy deep amber-brown with a smallish head of foam but it sticks around for the entire session and it has some lacing.

The smell is big on the yeast! I'm also getting some sourness and some fruit but the yeast smell is strong and oh.... the sour notes are taking center stage now and I can't wait to take a sip.

The taste is really fruity up front. There's a definite sour flavour that dominates the intial taste but that is offset by some good malty caramel sweetness and it has a lot of earthy tones in the background that become more noticeable as I take further sips. It's an unusual mixture of flavours but I find that it works for *my* taste buds and I find myself taking more and more sips. Pretty drinkable in my book.

Further sips in and the sourness is still there but the malt presence balances out the brew nicely. I think Grand Teton has done a nice job within the style. I'm glad I bought 2 botttles for myself and 1 for a trade to another fan of the Grand Teton's Cellar Reserve series. This one is, imho, another well crafted brew. Thanks Grand Teton!

Vintage April 11, 2007

After the wax is removed enough to pry the swingtop up, a high-pressure stream of brown foam squirted across the kitchen. After running to the sink, the top is fully removed and the brew pours a beautiful clear burgundy.
Two inches of tan foam atop, with errant particulates that settle on the bottom.
Lacework aplenty throughout the glass.

Aromatics lead off with juicy figs, cherry-spiked malt, raisins, and sherry vinegar.
Hints of cedar, caramel, wet hay, and turned earth follow through.

Medium bodied, with a lush and creamy mouthfeel.

Ripe malt, dark fruits, and woody tannins start the palate. Shades of light acid, cherry pits, peppery funk, and figgy caramel step forward.

Finishes with a slight peppery warmth, a hint of acid, and lingering dark fruit.

A very low-key Oud Bruin. Lacking in any intensity or acidity found in better examples.
Pretty tasty and highly drinkable regardless.

look: 3.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Appearance: Spumes from the bottle and pours a cloudy rust color with a few squiggles of lace left after the head quickly fades

Smell: Tart apple cider aroma, with brown sugar and sour cherry elements

Taste: Opens rather bready with the sour apple flavors building by mid-palate; after the swallow, the sourness fades somewhat and while it clearly remains discernable, the flavor profile becomes dominated by banana and clove flavors, with a significant sweet, though woody, aspect to the finish

Mouthfeel: Medium to full body but much of the carbonation went down the drain

Drinkability: This is a mighty unusual beer; in a homebrew contest it would score poorly for its variance from style, but I enjoyed the complexity and, bottom line, I liked the taste

Thanks, brewjones, for the opportunity.

Pours a cloudy copper color with a small beige head, with decent retention and lacing. the aroma has a low amount of tartness to it, with cherries and green apples. There is some wild yeast, but not very strong. Still smells nice though.

Tastes both sweet and tart, but not as tart or sour as most Flanders Oud Bruins. Normally I would mark the score down for this, but I still like the taste, and it meets the style guidelines listed on the site. Same taste description as the aroma. It falls a little more into the smooth and sweet description, with mild tartness.

Medium bodied with light carbonation, smooth and easy to drink. Has both a sweet and slightly tart aftertaste. This is a different type of Flanders Oud Bruin than I am used to, but I like it.

1ltr waxed flip-top from the cellar.. the wax is always a bitch on these, but they're worth it. That being said, the cellaring has allowed the little yeasties and bacteria to go to work in a big way... pop the cap on this while it is VERY cold and then allow it to warm up... Alot of my kitchen and myself was sprayed with a high velocity mist of beer.

3 finger head that left very nice lacing atop a hazy amber brew.

Aroma is funky sweet and sour.. reminds me of a sweeter smelling Orval.. spicy.

Flavor begins with a spicy slightly sweet malty blast and trails into some nice bret mid palate and finish is fairly dry with a lingering bret and mild hop flavor. Green apples and a faint oakiness. Light/medium palate with only a touch of carbonation.

Aging this has done wonders for it.. only similar to the original and 10x the complexity.. much much better with some time in the bottle... I have a couple more in the cellar, and am going to try and find the last couple that may be in town.

Beer review from BA Mag Aug 2007.

Grand Teton Brewing went for authenticity and fermented this beer with both yeast and bacteria cultures for six months at cellar temperature.

Pours a bright tawny-colored brew with heavy tinges of red. The clarity is fine and a thin lace has no problem remaining for the duration. Mildly tart aroma with cellar funk and earthy, medicinal and grassy aromas. Creamy medium body with just enough crispness from the carbonation. The malt character unfolds with layers of complexities as it warms. The tartness is very delicate, mostly dissipating toward the end. Malty, with bready overtones. Woody hop flavors help to balance, while faint suggestions of cherry juice, musty yeast and a ghostlike lemon peel arise. Finishes quite dry and refreshing.

We really dig how the tartness is mellow and not in-your-face like other Oud Bruins we've tried. This beer is proof that some American brewers can brew just as well as their Belgian counterparts. A plate of beer-braised spareribs would do the trick for a pairing.

I'd say this is one of those beers that's better drank with vigor than sipped.

It starts pouring a hazy red amber with lots of head that evens to a thin layer of foam. Looks involved....like something's going on there.

The smell was sour cherries and sweet cranberries, mixed with something bready.

And that leads into the taste: Bold funk, vinous sour, full mouthfeel, more fruit, and enough palate scratching bubbles to keep things clean on the end. If all the components sit there, it can all get a little brash.

But overall it's sweet, fresh and complex, especially when you drink it to enjoy it and not overthink it. With a little more time to mellow (I drank this one about 2 months after it was bottled), it'd likely be great in both worlds.

Thanks to Bitterbill for this brew.

750ml Bottle
Waxed (Yellow) Swing Top

Poured into a chalice a beautiful clean/clear light red/mahongy color, nice carbonation, nice little creamy off-white head, some nice little islands and sticy lacing throughout the drink. The nose is malty, slightly sour/tangy, yeasty, some spices, and some nice caramel tones. The taste is a little sour/tangy, enough for the tongue to know it's there, malty, yeasty, there are some spice's in there, and a nice touch of caramel. The finish is alittle dry. Medium body, well-rounded brew. Very drinkable, a nice and easy brew to drink. Glad to have had a chance to try it, thanks Bill.

A: Great cloudy mahogany, looks solid- matches the visage of the bruin on the bottle. Head is a bit thin with oversized bubbles, fades quickly. Not much effervescence to speak of.

S: Uh oh. Has sweet esters and some biscuityness to it, but also has a fairly strong chalky aroma that I hate the taste of. Let's hope it's only in the nose.

T: Only semi-sour, with hints of cherry and lemon. Chalkiness in the nose has turned into a kind of minerality, which makes it more appealing. Malty biscuit present throughout. Tasty, almost super quenching.

M: There is some effervescence to it after all, gives it a lively and quick body. Not quite refreshing, but pretty darn good.

O: A great representation of the style, and I'm happy to see that an American brewery is pulling it off so well. Recommended, even if it's just to use the bottle's artwork in your interior decorating.

Thanks JohnGalt1 for this one, large swing top bottle, poured into a tulip. Lots of wax to remove, and be careful; lots of foam, a big mess if it is not really cold.
Nice looking, reddish colored, lots of lightly tan head, good retention. Aroma is quite fruity, but there is little funkiness. Some acidic notes, malty sweetness.
Light and refreshing, it is one tasty brew, but it is hard to take as an oud bruin; yes, there is some tartness and funkiness, but very little. It is somewhat acidic, but mostly fruity and malty, with a nice dry finish. It does not really fit the expected profile, but it is still a good brew.

Pours a hazy, brown color. 1/4 inch head of an off-white color. Slight retention and slight lacing. Smells of sweet malt, alcohol, sourness, slight pale malt, and dark citrus. It smells more like slightly sour Belgian Tripel than a Flanders Oud Bruin. Mouth feel is smooth and crisp, with an average carbonation level. There is a moderate level of sourness. Tastes of sourness (grapes?), alcohol, sweet malt, slight hops, yeast, and slight pale malt. Overall, while this is a tasty beer it is not my favorite example of the style. I prefer FOB's to be more sour, though the blend in this beer is quite good.

1 quart, 1.8 oz. bottle, bottle-conditioned; waxed flip-top bottle. Picture of a large bear on bottle. Attached tag has a description and a bottling date of April 13, 2007. (Tried just over two months later.)

Poured into tulip glass:

Pours deep ruby/mahogany wih a large off-white head that settles to a lasting cover and leaves a large dose of lacing on the glass.

The smell is of berry-like fruitiness wiht a touch of vinegar. Malty sweetness really stands out, followed by a growing, but restrained, sourness.

The taste is of sweet carmelized graininess. Lactic sourness balances out the sweetness with quite a bit of East Kent Golding hops giving it an earthy, bitter undertone. Sweet malt and corn linger through the finish. Alcohol is well-covered.

Light bodied and smooth. Not quite as pungent or sour as expected, and flavors hang on, but not quite as long as I would like.

An interesting one - I was going to say to sip on, and rate drinkability a bit lower, but it vanishes fairly quickly thanks to a nice carbonation level and general smoothness. Still, I don't know if it's a prime example of the style - a certain corn-adjunct characteristic, while maybe lightening it - makes it rather sweet and throws it "off" just a bit. I don't know, but maybe they could have done something else - whatever. It's decent and well-worth trying. I could see it pairing well enough with certain meats and fish.

Thanks to jcwattsrugger for bringing this back for me.

In the true Flemish taste, Grand Teton's Oud Bruin captures the essence of a region with a toasty, savory and sour flavor spread that's as complex and alluring as it is polarizing.

Plum wine in color, the darken center displays a deep amber and bronze. Above, the short-lived spritz of foam folds back into the beer but leaves a bouquet of cherry, apple and grape behind. Sweetened with the supple sugars of confectioner's candy, toasted grain and cola nut, the early flavors are a buffer from the sourness to come.

A slow transition to dryness and sourness leaves the middle palate to embrace the toasty and nutty malts but to also embrace the tepid sourness that also creeps into the balance of the beer. After which, the winey tone of the beer takes a slight lead and finishes the taste with toast, wood and soft wood rot.

As suggestions of berry and cherry tread onto the finish, the beer concludes with a similar toasty, fruity, and sour trend that the aroma suggested. Spicy with hints of peppercorn highlight the toasted aspects of taste as the medium-bodied sour ale echoes with toast and cherry.

2013 Vintage into a tulip glass:

I am really impressed with the appearance on this beer. A moderately aggressive pour down the middle of the glass produced a three finger fluffy off white head. It has slowly dissipated leaving half a finger of tight bubbles. Carbonation is streaming off the bottom of the glass. Color is a cloudy burnt orange at the edges of the glass becoming a deeper amber in the center. The nose is a little bland with Belgian yeast esters taking over most of the aroma. A slight caramel malty sweetness is detected as well as a mineral earthyness. There is maybe a tiny hint of funk. Taste is much better than the aroma. Up front I get caramel sweetness and a traditional Belgian ale yeast taste. In the middle of the palate I start to get the slightly sour notes. My mouth puckers for a moment, but on the back end it is taken over by an earthy bitterness that is a little overwhelming. Dry finish. I get where other reviewers have been coming from. I would have really liked the earthy bitterness to at the back end to have been replaced by a puckering sourness to complement the caramel sweetness. That said, a highly enjoyable and drinkable ale and perhaps serves as a good "introduction" to sour beers.

Pours a hazy brown with a short head. The aroma has a bit of band-aid to it, and then transitions into some acetic sour and funky barnyard smells. Right on the edge of being too much, and the band-aid is already pushing it over the brink. Thankfully, all of this mellows a bit in the mouth. The taste has some nice, more restrained barnyard elements and there is a touch of sweetness. A bit of rubberband creeps in, but its not overbearing and doesn't detract as much as it distracts. A bit much overall and a little rough in the mouth. I wouldn't say they have this style down pat, but I love the fact that more breweries are producing beers like this and taking up the challenge.

A: no head really on a clear amber with relatively clear orange and golden hues body.

S: very fruity with both dark fruits and tropical fruits including red apple, fig, sour cherry, mango, tangerine with cinnamon notes.

T: fairly malty with sour and caramel malts, breads, wood, booze, fruits including fig, grape and red apple although not very sweet, more tart and sour. Belgian yeast throughout.

M: medium body and moderate carbonation. coats the palate.

Overall: fairly boozy and sour with a nice belgian yeast presence. I havent had too many of these but this one seems to have many elements making it complex.

On tap at Closed For Business.

A: Pours a dark garnet, ruby red color. A two finger beige head forms, and recedes in a second. Light lace is left behind.
S: Tart, vinegary dark fruits up front. Thought the tartness is not in your face. Sweet malt, then nothing. Nothing lingers.
T: Follows the nose with vinegary fruits. Lightly tart, almost no acidity, and sweet malts. Again, nothing lingers hear.
M/D: A medium body and lower carbonation. Fairly thin and watery. Not hard to drink. I finished this with ease.

This is not bad. Just fairly tame. I like in your face vinegary, acidity. Probably the only style that I enjoy over balance. I don't want to say disappointed, but not exactly what I look for in the style.

Oud Bruin – Flanders Brown Ale (6%) - Grand Teton Brewing Co. (Idaho)

App: Deep ruby-brown color. Clear, but for a swirl of yeast. One and a half finger tan head that settles moderately quickly but leaves a ring of bubbly head which eventually goes thin. No lacing noted.

Smell: Chalky and slightly fusel. Some sourness high, subtle notes of cherry and champagne dryness. Light malt sweetness. Bouquet is moderate and slightly acetic. Some dark fruit.

Taste: Assertively sweet on the foretaste, gradually becoming sour on the palate almost like green tomato or gooseberry. Green grape. Some alcohol. Nice caramelized, almost crème brulee. Dark fruit mild but pleasant.

Mouth: Medium to medium low body. Moderate carb with noticeable dryness on the finish.

Home tasting, 22oz into Tulip. 2/20/14.

On tap extreme pizza poured into stemmed glass.
Looks hazy,medium-dark brown close to a amber yet more tones walnut..smell is subdued malt and some fruity essence such as strawberry, raspberry and lil chocolate in there too..taste is much more complex than the smell. Taste is funky, and definate complex malt profile, medium sour notes, light, refreshing..some carmel and chocolate undertoneszzvery low hop character, yet slight presence. Funky, yet not too spicy..pair great with pizza, brie in puff- pastry, and this beer shall compliment dishes that are bready (pizza, pasta).. This beer needs a heavier or chewy-er food to compliment it's lightness and juicy/funky character..muscles with this beer in the stock..butter, cheese, or bread with this one should do..

Sat on this for a couple of years. I guess now is the time.
Thanks Linda.
Opened with immediate carbonation (boy beer) coming out of the bottle. Holiding a potent tart and sour sweet malt aroma even before pouring. A bit of the barnyard too. Pretty consistent throughout.
Cloudy amber of slight orange brown and red. Thinnish head after pouring holds it status very well throughout.
Just a touch of cinnamon before the more traditional flavors come on. Qiute tart, but something isn't quit right. The flavors underneath the sour don't sit well. The malt seems a little shallow. flat and uninspiring, and compared to others I find the fruit difficult to discern. Some sour apple and as it warms can start to pick up a few more flavors, but still limited.
Fully carbonated with a 1/2 glass filling me up with bubbles. Reasonably thin and the carbonation is soft.
Especially as it warmed some, became a more drinkable beer, but that does not take away from its deficits.

1 liter flip top waxed bottle courtesy of bitterbill as an extra. Stamped on label 4-11-07

This one was way carbonated, even served cold it poured a huge foamy head into my tulip glass. It was a medium brown color with lots of bubbles. Attractive to look at when first poured. After sitting to warm up a bit the head dissipated to just a scant ring.

The smell was just barely tart/vinegary and then you could smell some banana and spice. It was a bit confusing for me to wrap my head around.

The taste was also confusing. When i saw oud bruin on the bottle, and this is classified as a flanders oud bruin, i was expecting sour. What i got was different. Up front there was just a hint of it trying to be sour. Just a slight hint of tartness that faded very quickly. Midpalate I began to get some belgian yeast breadiness with a biscuit like malt presence, a typical belgian pale, and then on the finish i began to get some mashed banana flavors, almost a wheat beer flavor. It was a very odd combination of tastes. It was almost like I had consumed a flanders oud bruin in the glass, then without washing it poured in a belgian pale ale and drank it while eating an overripe banana.

The mouthfeel was good and was not hurt by the massive carbonation which i assume was from aging a bottle-conditioned beer.

The drinkability was unique. I drank it, and I kept coming back for more, not so much because I loved it but because I kept wanting to figure it out. My brain and tongue were confused. It is a cross between two styles I like, so I finished off the bottle, but I am not so sure I would rush to drink more.

Picked this up at Liquor Max. Comes in a huge bottle with a wax covered flip-top. I like the GT brews I've had thus far, so this is promising!
Pours a pretty standard rediish brown color. There's a little head on the top of it, but not much. Future pours are more aggressive and give a little more head.
Smells of yeast, brown sugar, dates, and black pepper.
Taste starts off nice with the sweet dried fruit flavors, but then it just trails off into nothing. The yeast that's present in the smell isn't really there for the taste. Something's really just missing or is watered down. GT mentions it uses "maize" to lighten the body (which sounds better than corn), so maybe that's the culprit. Anyway, the flavor's missing something.
Mouthfeel is normal per the style. It's a little watery, but not too much so.
I split this bottle with my wife and it was more than enough for both of us. I'd take another one if I was given one, but at $12, I won't go looking for it.
GT's a fine brewer, but this one's a miss for me. It feels like we missed out on something because it's not flavorful enough...yet there's a good flavor buried in there.

Enjoyed on tap from Swagger. Served in a Boulevard tulip glass.

Appearance - Pretty much to style. Body is chestnut brown with reddish clay highlights. Half-finger of bubbly head that dissipates pretty quickly leaving a rim of bubbles around the edge of the glass for the remainder.

Smell - Barely a hint of tart along with notes of dried fruit--specifically raisin, maybe cranberry--and some hints of malty sweetness.

Taste - Where is the sour? All I get from this is mostly malt, almost like an American brown ale more than a Flanders Oud Bruin. The main thing differentiating it from an American red, to me, is the lack of any kind of hop presence, which is normal for the Flanders style. However, I prefer my sour browns to have more, no actually SOME tartness.

Mouthfeel - Thin and fleeting. Light-bodied and just enough carbonation to give it a little texture.

Overall, a disappointing beer to say the least. That being said, I like sour beers, so when I have a style that's intended to be sour, or at least a little tart, with almost zero pucker factor, I'm going to be disappointed. I would recommend to people who have a hard time getting into sours, but this really isn't going to be very representative of good versions of the style, unfortunately.

Maybe I will buy a bottle and let it age for awhile to let the various cultures work their souring magic on this beer.

Poured from large standard pressure-cap bottle into a tulip glass. Reviewed live in high elevation Kalispell, Mont.

A- One-finger khaki colored head with large bubbles. Low retention. Hazy, orange-brown color, very little light breaks through.

S- Slight funkiness, wooden notes. Not as sour as the style usually prepares me for.

T- Wood. Slight funk, but not sour. Not great.

M- Like whiskey, thick and alcoholic.

O- Not a great beer. I don't enjoy this very much.
