4.08/5  rDev -2.9%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4.5

From a bomber obtained in my first trade.

a=Clear deep amber with a small light tan head that fades to a ring.

s=Nose is tart cherry, malt vinigar with light burnt rubber phenols. Some biscuity brett as the glass warms.

t= Light tart cherries soaked in malt vinigar (notice a pattern). Pleasantly tart. Slightly astringent but not out of style. Very low hop bitterness. No hop flavor.

M= Medium-big bodied. Puckering tartness. Medium carbonation, little more co2 might make the beer appear dryer and make this easier to drink but i'm nit picking.

d= This is a great beer. More tart than the leifmans oud bruin but right on par with the oerbier reservas and other world class examples of this style.

Bomber into a Duvel tulip. Much thanks to my buddy impMA in Phx AZ for hooking it up.

Gorgeous deep brown with a burgundy-mahogany hue beneath. That Brett carbonation that has the tiny, off-white cosmic bubbles that gather round the edges of the glass and leave little round clusters sticking to the glass above the liquid level.

Aroma: 5. Complex and wonderful. Dark cherries, cranberries, red wine, some wood, peaches and apples, Brett damp earthiness. Belgian farmhouse-y. Some damp rose petals beneath. Some sweetness that does not come through as much in the flavor.

Same flavours as above in the taste.
Dry finish with lasting flavours of tart cherries, cranberries, peaches, and especially plum. The most caramel-malt flavours I've tasted in a sour. There is a sense of cloying that evolves in the taste and then that I feel in my stomach. Oh well, the aroma and taste are fantastic - to the extent that I've said wow a few times. The Brett is actually relatively "clean" - perhaps because of the 30 IBU? I might taste a touch of grassy hops at the end, followed by the honeyed figgy-plums. I also attribute the sense of a somewhat subdued Brett funk to all the other things going on - cherries, wine barrels, and the thickness.

Feel is nice. Thick and definitely has that Brett-effect.

I thought I'd have no problem finishing this bomber solo, but it's starting to get a little too sweet - I'm sensitive to sweetness in beer - but there are still enough redeeming qualities to finish the bomber without too much discomfort. Drinkablity has come done a bit and overall enjoyment has waned since sips 1-8, but not because the alcohol has become noticeable; it just seems heavier and not as refreshing now. Oh well. Next time I'll prolly split it. I might prefer this to Goudenband. I'd love to do a side-by-side, but that hasn't been in Austin in about half a year, and it seems Dissident has been gone for months.

It tastes a little more Belgian-y with the yeast/sediment poured it. Also more muddled and thick. I'm glad I waited until the end to dump it in.

I started off loving it, buy still enjoyed finishing it. Definitely recommended for it's aroma alone, and it's uniqueness, and is worth seeking out.

Thanks to inflatablechair for this one. 22oz. wax sealed bottle. Served in a Duvel tulip. Poured a reddish copper with a thin off white head. Nice lacing. Great sour fruit aroma. Not quite as sour as the aroma might suggest, but the yeasty tang is there. Medium bodied with a spritzy mouthfeel. Sour cherry flavor develops, as well as a little wood in the finish. Very refreshing and drinkable. Alcohol is not evident. Very enjoyable.

On tap today at the Moon and Sixpence in Portland.

The beer pours a honey red color with good head retention and lacing. On the nose.... sigh. I could easily mistake this beer for a Belgian Red Flanders. There is a huge aroma of wet blanket, barnyard, sweet and sour, and dead moose. Jeeze Loueeze!!! Alas, the flavors on the palate perfectly replicate the nose, and this is without doubt one of the most authentic domestically brewed red flanders, oud bruin beers I've ever come across. The beer is at most medium bodied and I guess drinkability is pretty good. The alcohol is certainly well disguised, but how can you call a beer that smells and tastes like this "drinkable?"

Absolutely disgusting stuff.... Deschutes should be ashamed of themselves for making something like this. Very, very impressive....

Bottle sampled on 09/26/08 at Night of the Funk. Pours a light brown with no head. Aroma of tomato sauce and light fruits and possibly something else that I couldn't identify...Flavor of a slight sour tinge, alcohol, Belgian yeast, slight bitter hops, and oak barrel. Hmm, this beer doesn't quite live up to its expectation but it certainly wasn't bad. Good sour.

Bottle. Pours a clear dark reddish brown with an average, off-white head, somewhat lasting with good lacing. Aroma is mainly funky, like horse blanket and farmhouse, with notes of cherry and wood. Taste started sour and funky at first and ended on a sweeter note, not so overly sour that it can only be enjoyed by those that love the style, but not so sweet that the flavor gets wrecked. I'd say a great first try at the style by Deschutes.

I freakin hate wax capped bottles. I have said it before and will say it again. That being said...Pours a very nice coppery/chestnut color. Decent sized head. Great cherry/fruit aroma with a touch of woody and earthiness to it. Flavor is a pleasant mix of sour fruit with some oak or general wood like flavors. Rather tart/sour but not overly so. Retains some sweetness thoughout. Decent mouthfeel-slight puckering in the finish. Great beer overall. Fantastic US version for sure. Decent beer to cellar I would think. Thanks to jtrockchalk for the Secret Santa sample.

Picked up a 22 oz. bottle of this at Texas Liquor, Carlsbad, CA for $14.99 a couple months back.

The bottle is gorgeous with a somewhat subtle sparse bird shadow drawing on the label and a waxed top. The wax is a bit of a chore to break thru when I'm dying to get to the goodness inside.

Pours a crimson-cranberry color with a tight sparkle on the head. The aroma is big: sour apple, cherry, cinnamon, clove and a slight cider vinegar. It takes over my kitchen, which is fine by me.

You get the sweet first with the clove, cinnamon and even a little rosé followed by the sour apple and cider viinger . The sourness is genuine and delicious.

Remarkable beer.

Huge thanks goes to goodbyeohio for this one!
Smells of sweet and tart fruit with granny smith apples, cranberry, cherry and raspberries. The taste starts very tart and follows with flavors of cherries, cranberries and other tart fruits. The mouthfeel has medium body and has carbonation that tickles the tongue. Drinkability is high. I could not put this down and had no trouble finishing the bottle. This was my first sour beer and it leaves me wanting to try more. Highly recommended to those who want to try something different.

When I think "dissident" I think of Noam Chomsky...or a Pearl Jam song...or Judas Priest's "Dissident Aggressor"...or msubulldog25, who generously sent this. Hopefully next time I think "dissident" it'll be with visions of this bottle floating through my head. Let's see...

First, c'mon, the wax thing looks nice, very classy, but it's a hassle and a mess. Or maybe I'm too uncoordinated to deal with it. No points docked for this, of course. When I finally get the liquid into my Unibroue tulip, I'm looking at one gorgeous beer. The fluffy two-finger cap has tan highlights; the liquid is a gorgeous rusty red with burgundy shades, and a battalion of bubbles rush northward. A thick gob of lace swirls around the glass and this thing might as well get a perfect "5" for looks.

Aroma is fruit (cherry, cranberry), leather, and band-aid (or what my lovely wife calls "socks"). Quite fragrant and even flowery in the wildest sense, with a fresh bread dough essence in the background. Geez, so far, so great.

Flavor is what could be expected from the hints in the aroma. Tangy fruits--especially cranberry and currant--along with a wild, stinky yeastiness that thankfully doesn't go overboard. Woody, with earth/soil hints and fresh hot doughnut breadiness. Finish is tangy/fruity and slightly sweet. Yeast carries through into the finish as well.

Round and creamy, yet buoyant and alive. Puckers the mouth just enough to keep you wanting more. It's just right.

This is absolutely wonderful. Should be sought out by any fan of Belgian sour sales, Belgian wild ales, Belgian ales in general, and just damn great beer. The Belgians better watch their back--the Dissident is a bad-ass mutha of an Oud Bruin. There are actually Belgians who think no U.S. brewer could possibly brew a Belgian-style ale with any integrity (I won't name names). The Dissident smashes that notion once and for all.

A. Bright copper, somewhat of a mahogony color or maroon. Head is light brown 1/2" and sporadic. Brilliantly clear. What a beautiful looking beer.

S. Honestly, I poured this beer and left it on the table. I can smell it from where I'm at. Scents of sour cherries, lemons, light band aid from the funk, over ripened grapefruit, and light white grapes.

T. The same sour cherry carrying over with lemon zest, oranges, slight woodsy taste, the same funk carrying over offering up horseblanket and medicinal like tastes.

M. Light and zingy in the mouth. Perfect for style.

D. Not overly puckering and sour, but nice and complex. Great representation of style in all aspects and a beer that I hold high on my all time list.

Poured into a Cabernet glass. Appears a beautiful amber hue, with a creamy head that dissipated quickly into spotty lacing. Smells of oak, funk and fruit. The cherries really show through on this beer, as well as the pinot noir from the barrels. 18 months did this beer justice. Mouthfeel is thin and dry and dissipates rather fast coaxing me into drinking it faster. Very drinkable, but be cautious, if it warms up to much, the funk becomes a little challenging.

Big thanks to Djeucalyptus for this baby! Poured into a tulip. Nice dark auburn/brown with a thin, wispy off white head. First pour (mine) seemed to dissapate quickly. Smell was divine. Lots of sour apple, vinegar and dark sour fruit. Taste was similar. Got the sour fruit, cherries, apple, etc. Also got a phenolic, medicinal tone. Interesting. Good, full mouthfeel. Served barely chilled, this one was good, not great.

This is the first of this style I have ever had. Not what I expected, but overall a pleasant experience.

A: Poured into a pilsner glass. Amber with slightly off-colored head, moderate lacing.

S: Smells of apples

T: Sour apple, but not in a bad way, borderline cider.

M: Creamy with a crisp finish.

D: Not bad, matter of fact pretty refreshing.

I had no idea of what to expect with this style so I cannot speak to how true to the style it stays, but pretty tasty no less. I enjoyed this beer to the full extent and recommend that if you haven't yet tried it you want to. I will be again.

Bottle courtesy of BrewMonkey, thanks again!

Pours a nice amber / brown color with a nice off white head.

Aromas are sour, but not overly so. Some vinegar and cider as well as some earthiness and oak. Very nice nose.

Taste is sour, slightly sweet, oakey, crisp, and of green apple cider. A bit creamy, with a really nice soft brett sourness that lingers all along the finish but isn't at all overpowering.

Nice thick mouthfeel, good carbonation, with a really fullness.

Drinkability is quite good. Not a big sour beast like a lot of the sours I have tried. This one is thick feeling, but the sourness provides a nice tart back drop instead of being in your face. Very nicely done Deschutes.

Big thanks to grub for opening this on Day 1 of the 2008 Biergotter Tasting.
Deep tawny amber, clear, with a bit of a reddish hue. It had a sticky beige cap that left some spotty lacing on the glass. A bit sharp on the nose, mildly acetic but quite tart overall. Slightly earthy with some cinnamon spiciness and light horsey funk. The flavour was full of tart fruit and berry, some earthy brett and dried fruit towards the end. Oak and vanilla, plus a bit of molasses appeared as it warmed. Medium to light bodied with average carbonation. The bubbles were quite light on the palate though, giving it a smooth texture. Nicely balanced, quite a mellow sour (at least after the other monsters we imbibed).

Big thanks to grub for opening up this one, good thing I have a few bottles waiting at my parents place. Day 1 of insane DrJay visit epic tasting.

Pours a clear reddish orange, light brown hues, eggshell head forms, thin ring around the glass, some lace spots stick around. Smell is neat, brown sugar, sour fruit, oak, vanilla, alcohol, cherries and strawberries, cinnamon spice and some raisins, pretty cool, nice sourness. Taste is very fruity, oak, brown sugar and vanilla, honey, sour fruit, cinnamon and a neat spiciness, sour fruit in the finish. Mouthfeel is medium bodied with medium to high carbonation. Very nice stuff, need to have it again though, it was in some tough competition that night. Thanks Russ!

Dissident fills my glass a surprisingly clear handsome mahogany. A few tiny particles float here and there but in no way affect the clarity. The body absolutely glows when backlit as the tiny carbonation bubbles scatter to the surface. The khaki head grew to two fingers without a problem and slowly fell to a respectable cap that gets creamier and creamier as it settles. This head leaves behind some tight, sticky, intricate lacing. It makes me want to dive right in.

I really enjoy the smell of this brew, slightly acidic with a nice damp oakiness. The cherries are there but way in the back with a solid underlying sweetness. Each swirl to bring the head back to life brings forward more of the sweetness but after the head settles back down the somewhat tart acidity comes back to the forefront. I'm a big fan of the tartness in the nose and the wet oak but the sweetness is a little on the cough drop side but that fades quickly.

The flavor is exactly what the nose suggested. A quick flash of acidic vinegar and damp oak get things started in a nice way. The cherries come through with a nice tartness in the middles that segues into the acidity again on the swallow. This beer has all the makings of being excellent. Unfortunately the overall flavor seems to be somewhat flat and watery. The flavors are just lacking.

The body is medium when it first hits the tongue but the active carbonation adds some frothiness to the backend. There's a bit of tartness in the back that lingers slightly. This brew has a good body.

The flavor didn't come together as well as I would have liked but this beer is super drinkable, even for the high abv. Each glass I poured was gone before I knew it. The Dissident really goes down easy.

I enjoyed The Dissident quite a bit even though it didn't come together like I hoped it would. It did go down super easy and I'd like more of it now that my glass is empty. I don't know what some time will do but I doubt it will do much. Hopefully things get a little better here.

Pours out a really clear reddish amber like strong Ice Tea with two fingers of off-white suds.
Smell is malty cherries and school glue. Smells sour but not like a Cantillon at least not as fruity.
Taste is like dark cherry juice and bitter lemon peel. Aftertaste has a sweetness then the Alum taste comes in.
Mouthfeel is really creamy for such a bubbly concotion. Some sugar coats the mouth but is gone by the time you are ready for another sip.
Drinkability is OK here but it is so hard to find a bottle around here in KY.

Pours hazy auburn with a short off-white head. I agree with Ernest, the wax cap nearly drove me insane trying to carve off enough to open the bottle. Aroma is malty, with funky cherries and earthy wood. Not like other sours. Smooth and warm cherry, malt, oak, and vanilla. When the sour comes, it is mellow. Mostly brett and cherries, but in a vinuous/sherry way. Drinks more like a liquer than a funky, sour pucker-bomb. Excellent beer.

Earth brown ale, firmly hazy yet clear. A beautiful but small pillow of clingy dense white foam rests on top and provides sharp visual contrast. Very nice but it needs more foam to qualify higher ;-)

Mellow funky aroma of infected beer, a barn of hay and horses, and dusty brown malt.

Tart and medicinal. Sticky but not very sweet. Woody, with lots of cool non-carmel specialty malts. Suggestions of sour cherries. Delicate soft water profile. The thickness softly speaks up but is overpowered by refreshment. Kind of like a sour candy the moment it just starts to fade and show sweetness (and minus the initial sour shock).

Carbonation is natural and light. It lends a slightly creamy mouthfeel.

Quite a great stab at the style, and drinking great at about 5 months after the release. I'm quite happy to drink it anytime.

I'm also delighted this style is being produced by more brewers these days. Its always been one of my favorites. Cheers!

Edit: Just noticed the alcohol content is 9%?? Drinks like a 5.5% abv beer (uh oh, I thought it was!)

huge whiff of fresh cherries as the top is popped...

pours crystal clear a red cherry-ish amber color with a one inch pale tan head.

initially lots of cherry in the aroma which fades to unveil metal, blood/iron/mineral, woody vanilla and cement-like bretty funk. it smells fairly sweet (for the style).

i get a lot of cinnamon flavor... along with ripe cherries, vanilla, caramel, toasted nuttiness and mineral-y bretty stink. there's a touch of malty sweetness to start. but, by the time the sip is over my tongue is dried off completely.... thanks brett! it's tart and sour but not overly on either. the aftertaste lingers long into the night as fresh cherries. alcohol does come into play as it warms the sinus and chest the same way wine does... it's quite pleasant. the medium body leans heavily on full. the carbonation gives it a creamy soft mouth feel which coats my mouth entirely yet it is spicy and prickly with a twangy kick.

So... It's not surprising, to me, that this took gold at gabf but the brute took silver. But, hey, that's me. First off... Thanks to mikesgroove for the opportunity to try this one! Mike... You rock!

Anywho...

This comes across as... As an approachable sour ale. As a great place to start drinking sour ales. As in, I see why this got the gold - it's because anyone can see what there is to enjoy in it. The Brute, if I can compare again, is something that you cannot approach until you've gained an appreciation for the sour style.

So, does approachable equal good? Well, it has the characteristics of a sour ale and yet remains well balanced and easily drinkable - even on this a wicked bitterly cold night. So, yeah. I'd have to say that it does equal good.

Pours a rich woody amber with light brown and caramel highlights. A sand colored thin head of fairly large bubbles rose up and receded quickly, leaving behind a nice bit of sticky oily lacing.

This one packs quite an aroma. Sour apples and sour cherries up front, receding to a more woody, almost oaky rich earthiness. Some spicing of cloves, cardamom and pink peppercorns add more depth, incase the funky sour yeast aroma wasn't enough.

Sweetness from the apples and cherries hits first on the tongue followed closely by an earthy astringent tartness of grapefruit pith and grapefruit seeds. Woody and green in the middle with some sap and maple notes, finishing with a sweet-sour tannin-like dry finish. Lots of stuff going on, and it verges on rough at time.

Mouthfeel is slick, verging on oiliness, with a definite syrupy sweetness present. Low carbonation still manages to deliver a prickly and tingly tannin bite as a result of the dryness. Personally, I'm loving the mouthfeel, though I can easily see how others aren't as pleased. Definitely unique, and possibly a bit unfinished.

Beautiful on the whole, and an amazing brew considering the relatively mainstream nature of Deschutes. A valiant effort that produced decent results. Not necessarily world class, and it tastes and feels like it could use a touch of work, but on the whole, it's impressive and I definitely look forward to cracking the other bottles.
