OK, this is an unusual one. Supposedly, this has one gram of hops per batch. The description on the bottle reads: "Almost unhopped brown ale, the base beer for Morpheus Wild and Kerasus, undressed for the fans of the true "oud bruin" style ."

It's murky brown and pretty flat. There's a tiny amount of carbonation, but not enough to form a head.

It sure smells tart. I get a little plum, and some brown sugar. There's not a whole lot going on here. Let's see how it tastes.

Oh, my. Mix it with oil and call it dressing. This is like drinking vinegar. Close, anyway. I'm beginning to think I shouldn't have opened this so late. Am I going to have a rush of acid reflux when I lie down? Inquiring minds want to know.

Actually, if I sip it, it's rather interesting. But it's certainly extreme. One bottle is enough for me.

Sour, like vinegar and I get a taste of soy. Worth a try.

Recommended by someone at the Southampton Beer Store.

Poured with a reddish-tan head that quickly subsided to a rime of fine bubbles that appear more tan. After it settles, little carbonation is obvious, but as described below it is there.

The aroma is sour with a raisin, molasses, cherry quality.

The taste is sour plum, including the tartness experienced by plum skin. Cider vinegar is also present in the taste. A bready, crusty undertone is noticeable on the finish.

It is quite acidic (even burns my sensitive stomach). It is pretty well carbonated with a medium body.
