Served from tap in a tumbler at Firkin.

Finishing off my day at Firkin by revisiting a beer I vaguely remember trying way back in my NoVa days. It pours a clear midnight tawny topped by a finger or so of dark khaki foam. The nose basically reminds me of a jar (if one were to exist, of course) of maple syrup-laden malt vinegar. The taste flips things a bit, having some tart vinegar tinging dry maple syrup, with a touch of muted brine making a brief cameo near the beginning of the finish. The body is a light medium, with a light moderate carbonation, a slick feel, and a sorta/kinda drying finish. Overall, an odd beer, really, what with its inability to decide on a flavor path (vinegar-leaning or maltily sweet), but it still retains its drinkability.

Interesting take on the oud bruin style, leaning towards the sour ales. Brown in color with minimal head, and some cider/wine aromas. Taste is tart, and slightly sweet. A good dessert beer.

Pours a very dark brown tinted red, one finger of khaki colored head, settles to a thin ring, dots of lace down the glass. Smell: balsamic, cherry, brown sugar, note of soured stone fruit. Taste: sour peach, cherry, vanilla-ish note, blackberry, herbal...fair amount of herbal bitterness; not much acidity. Carbonation is a little high and aggressive making it feel unrefined for the style.

It had a sourness that wasn't overwhelming and made me taste buds pucker but not for long. It's a unique sour beer that one should try to expierence the vast varitey of brews.
