Strange Fellows Brewing is a relatively new¬†East Vancouver (Canada) craft brewery, and this is a really interesting beer, which I drank with Brent Muller of Victoria’s Vessel Liquor Store. It’s an Oud Bruin (translates as Old Brown), which is a Flemish style of ale that combines sour elements with more standard brown ale characters, with a distinctive personality from spending a long time in oak barrels. This is such a distinctive beer, but it’s really lovely and the rather disparate flavour elements all mesh well.

Strange Fellows Brewing Reynard Oud Bruin, Vancouver, Canada
6.5% alcohol
Brown colour with a copper edge. This has lovely balance. It tastes of apples, pears and spice with a sour cherry character. Very fruity with lively acidity, and it’s quite wine like, with some blackcurrant hints and dried fruits. 9/10
