Pours amber, little carbonation. Less edgy flavor than others of its kind, making it harder to exhibit self-control when consuming. Mildly earthy finish.

Thanks to rudzud for sharing this interesting gem.

Thanks to rudzud for sharing.

Light fizzy head, dark murky ruby brown.

Nose brings big tangy sour malt, tart cherry like fruit, sour brown malts, mild acidity, weird earthy mushroomy woodsy moss, etc. Hint of toasted vanilla barrel.

Taste is very sour, tangy Flanders like sour funk, tart sour brown malts, little cherry tart funk, dark fruits and raisin, mild earthy mossy thing, not really mushroom but interesting, little funk, mild acidity, nice tart funk and sour reddish brown malts. Finish is mild sticky sweet, tangy funk, sour brown malts, little acidity, hint of earthy woodsy light mushroom water late on the back end.

Mouth is med bod, nice acidity, nice carb, very nice carb, not flemmy either.

Overall great, really interesting, earthiness adds a unique character to the nice oud bruin.

Received as an extra in a trade. Shared with JLindros.

A - Poured into a Kate the Great tulip a nice slightly hazy ruby hue with a thin head that fades rather quickly to leave thin halo.

S - Aromas of sour vinegar, malts, tart, oude bruin funk. Very nice earthy forest floor, musty. Light almost mushroom like.

T - Taste is similar to the nose, tart vinegar, nice malts, great funk. There is a nice earthy musty thing going on that I really like. Really nice earthy vinegar thing going on. I swear there is a lingering faint mushroom taste going on on the finish.

M - Mouthfeel is nicely carbonated, crisp, not really flemmy like this style can get.

O - Overall this beer was really tasty, I like the earthy aspect the mushrooms bring to the table. I really like this beer.

3.48/5  rDev -17.7%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 2.75 | overall: 3.25

Appearance: pours a light leather brown color with strong hints of garnet. almost no head but slight brown foam that doesn't stick around for along. some darkness to it but also a mix of brightness. not quite opaque.

Smell: sour dark cherries, oak, funk, strong earthiness and some lactic acid.

Taste: opens up with a strong fruity dark cherry taste. some caramel to toffee flavors play in a bit in the front. the earthiness strengthens and becomes stronger and with a hint of salt. oak barrel comes through towards the end along with red wine grapes. some funky yeast and lacto acid.

Mouthfeel: medium to lighter feel. too low or carbonation, linger earthy funky taste. some acidity.

Overall: probably the first Tired Hands beer I have been disappointed by. there are a lot of good flavors but it is lacking. the carbonation is low and this could but a bad effect on the taste.

4.21/5  rDev -0.5%
look: 4.75 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25

500 ml bottle poured into a wine glass

Appearance: Pours a dark red brown color with virtually no head, save for a thin light tan collar. Body is clear when held to light with a good amount of visible carbonation.

Smell: Sour cherry, oak, earthy funk, lacto and some hints of caramel and red apple.

Taste: Similar to the nose at first with a medium strength sourness. Sour cherry, red grape oak and a bit of bready malt are noticeable right away. The finish is where the shiitakes start to make themselves known and the aftertaste is straight funky mushrooms that linger on the palate for quite a while

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with a soft mouthfeel and medium, gentile carbonation.

Overall: Really good and really interesting. I'm not a huge fan of mushrooms and I still liked it quite a bit. Definitely worth trying if you're a fan of either mushrooms or sour brown ales.

Mushroom Oud Bruin:

Wasn't expecting a lot from this, Im not a fan of mushrooms but tried it anyways. WOW this thing is spot on. Smells like woods and slight amount of acidity.You get a lot of Earth and dirt coming through probably from the mushrooms. It's really well rounded and has great mouthfeel, pretty high carbed. No acetobactor coming through and no harshness at all just a straight tart pleasant sourness. Tired Hands nails it again with this one

This was just a strange beer. It was only slightly sour and then it had an earthy finish. It was a strange combination and as I got further down the glass it got worse. It was somewhat of a struggle to finish this off. I didnt really taste any Shitake in this beer at all either.
