Sour Brown

Nøgne Ø Sour Brown is dark brown in colour with a small tan coloured head that quickly disappeared. Aroma is musty with vinegar and apple cider dominating and very sour with oak coming through in the background. Tarty, fruity with some fruitiness like from raisins and cherries but mainly a farmhouse wild yeast aroma, not my cup of tea at all.

Flavours are very sour in the beginning and lead on to some brown ale tones of slight bitter chocolate and coffee with a bitter dry finish. Not in any way a sour ale fan and being a brown ale fan this mixture just leaves me confused and definitely not a beer I will be drinking again. Did I not mention this before, I hate sour beers.
