A quick update.

I bottled half of this a couple of weeks ago. I got impatient and tried one last night. Still needs some time to carb up properly, but it is very nice.

It can do with a bit more sourness. However the brett L has made for a very nice beer. Its sitting at about 1.008. So there is a decent amount of maltiness to back it all up.

It tastes a lot like one of my favourite NZ beers, the Galbraith's Strong Ale, which is essentially and english style old ale. It has a very prominent brett character with a bit of sourness.

I am,very happy with how its going. I will check on it again in a few weeks.

The bottles all developed a pelicle though, so there is that.

The rest of the fermenter had some second runnings from a stout I made a few ago added to it. I took about 5L and boiled it with hops for 15 minutes. Its fermented through and tastes quite good so far. I will give it another week or so.

I may be adding some cherry concentrate to it and let that ferment through as well. Or maybe to half of it... we shall see.

Second update.

I tried a bottle from the second half of this brew tonight. Since bottling the first half, I messed around with it some more while it sat around. I added some second runnings from a russian imperial stout, a fair bit of montmorency cherry concentrate, and some oak cubes thats been sitting in red wine.

Overall, I call this a success. Its not massively sour/tart, but its definitely in the flanders brown territory. This half has a lot more depth to it.

The second runnings added a pleasing maltiness up front, which is quickly followed by the pie cherry/ lambicus flavours and a decent amount of tartness/sourness that sticks around for a little while.

I have a lot of bottles of this, but will definitely be repeating this process.
