White Birch: Oude timey

type: Sour brown
origin: Hooksett, NH
price: $12/22oz
ABV: 7.3%
NSP: 6.3

I hadn't ever run into a sour brown before, but I've got to say that I was pretty happy with this one. It had all the things I've come to expect of a brown: nutty and malty flavor with not much hop. It also had all the things I like it a sour: fruity profile and puckering tartness. Both were in the same bottle, so while I usually would be a bit unhappy about the cost, the combo made me feel a bit better about it. Not maybe so much that I would start drinking this one regularly, but the novelty won me over this time. And I like sours way too much.
