BEER INFO

Brewed by:
The Bruery
California, United States
thebruery.com

Style: American Wild Ale

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 8.20%

Availability: Limited (brewed once)

Notes / Commercial Description:
Otiose is an English word (pronounced ‘oh-shus’) which means “without practical purpose.” It was a beer developed by our brewers during a rare space in the brewing schedule simply to satisfy their own cravings for a sour brown ale fermented with guava. Rich with tropical notes and balanced by a mellow roast, this beer brings your mind directly to a decadent Hawaiian luau, complete with the roasted pig.

750ml bottle. Thanks Dan!

A: Hazy medium brown body with a finger of fine light brown head. Light lace.

S: Sharp acetic acid, vinous oak, and sour fruit. Cherry, grape, and vanilla. Excellent.

T: Follows the nose. Tart, fruity, vinous, and lightly oaky Lots of red grape, light vanilla. Clean, tart finish.

M: Medium body, prickly carbonation. Good.

O: One of the better Bruery sours I've tried. Really enjoyable, in a hybrid AWA/Oud Bruin kind of way. Good stuff.

Cheers!
