BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Against The Grain Brewery & Smokehouse
Kentucky, United States
atgbrewery.com

Style: Flanders Oud Bruin

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 5.50%

Availability: Rotating

Notes / Commercial Description:
Slightly sour, slightly smoky ... all after a night of the Vaulted Needles and tight pants.

Our collaboration beer brewed with Urbain Coutteau of de Struise Brouwers, Vletren, Belgium.

Very similar to a flanders oud bruin, this sour mash beer is rich slightly smoky and sour. There is a unique woody flavor from the 4 month bourbon barrel conditioning it underwent. The nose is very light caramel and vanilla. The color is ruby brown to amber. It is brewed similarly to Urbains own Ypres beer, with a Kentucky spin on it.

4.18/5  rDev +24.4%
look: 4.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4.25

Appearance: a deep amber to mahogany color. an aggressive pour yields a two finger head that fades slowly and leaves a slight lacing. fairly hazy and opaque. Fairly good looking and i can attribute the darker color to aging in cypress more that the base beer

Smell: a slight woodeny earthy brett smell, almost a little tart. strong mineral like smell coming through

Taste: fairly clean taste up front, opens up more to lots of wood and earthy tones. very light brett character. light fruitiness. definite mineral quality ending

Mouthfeel: light and crisp, followed by some funkiness. sticky

Overall: I didn't quite expect this beer to be anything like this. the name and label points towards a beer dominated by wild yeast and barrel character. but what it turns out to be is a refreshing and crisp kolsch with influences by wild yeast and cypress. nice touch to a good base beer.

Despite the wonderful flavors originally found here, these have totally aged into smoky sours, with not much else to offer.
