Brabant

$6.99 for the 12 oz bottle from Bullock’s, Marietta, GA, USA a couple of weeks ago.
Poured into the Terrapin snifter.
Pours is a cola-colored affair with an initially decent, mild frothy head. Obviously this fades fairly quickly but it leaves a thin film and collar behind. It’s MUCH darker than I was anticipating.
Nose has light funk and some diluted vinegar.
The tastes are rather dry with a LOT of wood in there too. It’s has some leathery notes but the wood is VERY strong. A little salty in the finish. Way too woody and ill-defined funk at the moment.
My guess is that this beer is just really young. It feels immature and the acidic notes are nowhere near where they need to be yet.
Actually I didn’t care for this much. This beer MAY turn into something decent but for now it’s close to a drain pour. Horrible value right now; maybe that will improve over time, but for now this is a shambles.
