Notes/Commercial Description:
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.

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..

the worst grand teton beer out there, at least the 2013 batch, that ive had, and its not close. this is not an oud bruin, a far cry from it really. no sourness whatsoever, no lactic tartness or even funk. i dont know what went wrong here, and if it didnt taste okay, i would score it far lower. as a belgian brown, its okay, as an oud bruin its an utter embarrassment. hazy light brown amber liquid with some density and a patchy airy half inch of tan head. it smells fruity like apples, esters from a funny belgian yeast dominate, stale brown ale malts, a touch of chocolate, and caramel grains all bounce around. nowhere is wild fermentation, nowhere is funky yeast, and nowhere is any sign of the beer this claims to be. grand teton is an awesome brewery, they make nothing but unique and well crafted beers, all of them, but this is an abomination. sweet fruit, rotting apples, caramel malt, and stale belgian yeast all collide in a beer i dont care to ever taste again. ive heard a lot of different takes on what the deal is with this, but i can only gather its a mistake that should have never been released. an okay brown ale, not an oud bruin, avoid this one at all cost.

Oud Bruin – Flanders Brown Ale (6%) - Grand Teton Brewing Co. (Idaho)
☆☆☆½

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.

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.

Appearance: Pours with light white head that quickly dissipates. 50% opaque – caramel amber. Holds light, not cloudy.
Light aroma – fairly non-descript. Slight peat moss and plum.
Flat, leathery, tobacco, plum/raison. Not sour or tart that I can tell.
Overall: Meh, wouldn’t seek it out. Really sort of tastes like it is too young. Needs time to develop character.

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.

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.

2013 edition. Nice bottle presentation with a card tag that summarizes their brewing process, ingredients and the style. Date on card is April 2nd 2013.

Pours a medium amber. Very little head. No lacing. Typical of the style.

When I close my eyes and smell, I would swear this is an Octoberfest. Very bready, some banana and clove in the nose. Some medicinal notes.

Mouthfeel is very slick. Low carbonation. Thick and coating. Full bodied.

Taste is clean but buttery. Very sweet, no tartness to speak of. Caramel, malt and clove on the finish. Again, more Octoberfest. No hop bitterness or sour notes. A good amount of diacetyl is present.

Final thoughts...an average representation of the style. None of the slightly sour notes I'd hoped for or anticipated. I disliked the beer and was somewhat underwhelmed and confused. Almost seemed like Grand Teton should have allowed the Lacto and Brett to age out a few more months. That would have provided for a more sour and less sweet beer. Would not buy again or recommend. Sorry guys.

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.

From a 750 ml bottle (dated April 2, 2013) into a tulip.

A-An aggressive pour produces a flat-looking cranberry-colored brew. The one-finger head of tan foam drops immediately and leaves no lacing. The beer is clear and lighter in color than many of this style.

S-The smell has some cranberries, but very little sourness or tartness. In fact, it is a bit watery smelling, with only some prune-scented malts to provide any body.

T-The taste is just...off. There are some oxidized, dirty (as in dirt, literally) flavors, some prune, a touch of cranberry, and a saccharine bitterness instead of sweetness or vinous tartness.

M-The feel is close to normal for the style with soft carbonation and a moderate heft.

O-I was very disappointed in this beer. It lacked many of the sour, acidic, vinous characteristics that make an oud bruin an oud bruin. Instead, there is a mildly sweet prune flavor; some bitter, metallic tastes; and an earthiness that literally tastes like mud. I'm not sure if this batch was off or if I got a bad bottle, but I will not be looking for this brew again.

750ml into a tulip.

A: Pours a mild reddish brown with a large off-white head.

S: Strawberries, toasted grain, lightly bacterial.

T: Red grapes, caramel, light hop bitterness, bready.

M: Medium-bodied with active carbonation.

O: Malty without any acidity really. Grand Teton seems to have some major problems whenever they use souring yeast/bacteria, as the beers I've tried that are advertised as sour never are.

Handsome dark hazy amber in the New Belgium snifter. Enough foam and a tangy carbonation. Some lacing and swirls of foam as you slop the glass around. A little beery and woody aroma, but not much. Light and watery.

I don't taste much Brett or any hint of sourness. Bottled on date is not quite legible, but 2013 sometime. A hint of fruit that makes me think of the cheap passion fruit juice in the supermarket cooler. A touch of butter. Just enough bitterness and dark nastiness to keep it from being a good soda pop. This just seems like a lot of trouble for a sweet, soupy brew. From the 22 oz bottle bought for $10.25 at Bottlecraft in San Diego. At least they had the decency to put a cap on it instead of the cork nonsense.

Oud Bruin pours a reddish color with no head. Their is a nice mellow fruity and sour aroma. The taste is slightly fruity and sweet, a bit sour, and has a nice yeasty undertone. Full flavor, but the carbonation is a too light. Overall its an enjoyable beer, and a rather average one at that.

A sour brown ale that is neither sour nor brown... oh boy.

Pours an auburn-orange color, fairly hazy with a stray bubble or two rising upwards. A finger of tan foam rapidly fades to a thin laceless skim on the surface. Soon after there's no foam at all.

Smell is vague, nothing really stands out, there are some vaguely Belgian spice esters that would be more appropriate in a Dubbel or similar BSDA trappist style. Nutmeg or pumpkin pie spice seems to be out of place. Not offensive,though it just "ain't right".

Taste is similarly ill-defined, and more in line with a Dubbel or BSDA. Not sour, not even tart. Unfortunately 6 months of cellar conditioning has done very little. A vague tangy bitterness and some nutmeg, toasted malt. A little sweet at first then dry and oddly bitter in the aftertaste. Definitely hasn't seen a barrel or even oak chips. This beer was a waste of money and a sad, distant facsimile of an otherwise unique style. Out of my 40 Oud Bruin reviews, this appears to be the third worst (after Bourgone des Flanders and Rivertown Pestilence).

Should have check the review before buying this. I generally trust Grand Teton would release a good beer so I just buy them without question. But this is just isn't good.
Taste is sweet malted yeast. No acidity or sourness whatsoever. Way too sweet for an oud bruin. Taste like a brown ale brewed with Belgian yeast, which is not a good combination. I had a few gulps at this and poured the rest down the sink. Sorry, Grand Teton, love your beers but this one is a total misfire.

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.

A - Pours with a small head of white foam on top of a hazy, amber body. The head settles quickly and leaves little lace.

S - Caramel, brown sugar, and balsamic vinegar.

T - Sweet, sugary malt up front with notes of brown sugar and molasses. More of the same in the middle with a slightly acidic finish and lingering toasted grain character.

M - moderately thick body, average carbonation, and a slightly sweet finish.

D - This isn't a bad beer, but it thoroughly fails to live up to its stylistic description. There is almost no acidity and while there is a little funk in the aroma it tastes like a sort of imperial brown ale. Not something I would drink again and a bit ofa disappointment.

Thanks to wethorseblanket for sharing this one at drewone's tasting.

Bottled 4/1/13.

Pours a murky dark orange-red with a foamy bone head that settles to wisps of film on top of the beer. Small dots of lace slowly drip into the remaining beer on the drink down. Smell is slightly sour and tart with malt, grain, and fruity aromas. Taste is much the same with slight sour fruit and caramel flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is an average beer that is pretty disappointing for the style.

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.

Hazy red-brown brew with mild fast moving soapy tan-yellow head. No lacing.

Apple, brown sugar, grape/raisin, slightly musty. Slight lemongrass.

No tartness, at all. Lots of heavy sugary malt. Light carbonation, nearly harsh sweetness, zero bitterness.

Kinda of disappointing, hard to review... Far from fitting the style, not sure if it just needs more time or what, but it doesn't fit the category, much more of a Belgian... A good brew, but just not close to what I was expecting.

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.

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.

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.

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.
