Description 

In Britain, what started out as young or “mild” dark ale was once aged in oak barrels to make beer that was likely similar to sour brown ales of East Flanders. Using a similar base recipe to Commercial Suicide Farmhouse Mild Ale, Ol’ Oi is our tribute to that tradition.

Wow! This is a beautiful beer all the way around. It started out with a lovely pour: nice foam and a reddish-brown color that was extremely inviting. This Oud Bruin had an intense sour flavor and aroma with hints of sweet malt tied in to balance throughout sampling. Each sip of this lovely brew just draws you back in for more. Hints of light cherry esters shine throughout the aroma. This smooth yet sweet tart beer was perfectly balanced and absolutely delightful. This is a wonderful beer for the sour beer lover, and a treat for any aspiring connoisseur.
