A Flanders Brown (Oud Bruin) is considerably less sour and more malty than a Flanders Red.
The combination of sour, fruit and vinegar didn't suit my taste. I've read that the Brown is a little less intense, so I'm looking for a commerical example of that. Was the Duchesse De Bourgogne a good example of the Red? I've read that it's toned down from other Sour's.

It's good, but I measure all commercial examples against Rodenbach Grand Cru. RGC is very unique: it has a prominent acetic edge, reminiscent of balsamic vinegar with a character of red wine; a very complex beer. The sourness is definitely there but there's a balance. Duchesse is sweetened just a touch and I don't find it to be as pleasurable and refreshing as RGC. If the sourness is over the top, maybe Rodenbach Klassiek is more in line with your taste buds.

Another option as suggested by Jeff Sparrow is to make 5 gallons of Flanders Red, and then make a really malty young brown ale to blend with it. Depending on how sour mine comes out I may try this; Evan! claimed his didn't get very sour at all even after a year.

As I recall, Evan! pitched a neutral ale yeast for primary then bugs to secondary. I pitched the culture for primary so I'm expecting much more sourness.

Oh oh.... yeah that makes sense. I'm going with the Roeselare in primary. Go big or go home.

Did anyone else brew a beer with 3789? Since it's over 3 months old I pulled a sample and it has went from 1.010 to 1.006 and tastes fantastic. I think I will give it another 3 months to finish up anything it's working on, then dry hop it and bottle it up.

Just bottled an Orval-inspired beer fermented with WY-3789PC. Finished @ 1.007 (would have to check my other PC for recipe & mash temp).

Evolution of flavors from this yeast was interesting:
1. Started bland.
2. Turned quite fruity.
3. Ended with much more brett character than I was expecting.

If I think of it, I'll try to post a tasting review of that beer in a few weeks.
