Notes/Commercial Description:
This beer is retired; no longer brewed.

Flemish style sour ale was initially brewed as a Belgian style quadruple ale. Oud 15 was aged for two years in second generation red wine barrels which previously held our Jaspers beer. Blended and steeped with Montmorency sour cherries and bottle conditioned with Belgian candi sugar, Oud 15 represents the culmination of 15 years of brewing, and is worthy of the commemoration.

look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

pour is cloudy dark brown with a thin tan colored head. Nose is very big, tons cherry with a Bretty note behind. Fairly strong malt characteristic with toffee and light roast and a bit of vinegar. Taste is similar, a touch oxidized but very cherry forward up front, faint paper behind with dark malts abound. Chocolate and dark malts with a bit of leather and some tobacco and light vinegar. Faintly sour acidic characteristic in the finish on a heavy body and fairly well carbonated beer.

look: 3 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 3 | overall: 4

750 mL bottle poured into a snifter. Bottle #415 of 506.

Appearance - Deep brown, reddish body. Pours with a khaki head that disappears quickly.

Smell - Acetic acidity. Heavy caramel malt. Vanilla. Smells like a bourbon barrel. Cherry fruitiness. Tons of oak.

Taste - Sour up front, but it blends into sweet caramel and vanilla. Very rich. Cherry fruit sourness. Oak all the way through.

Mouthfeel - Heavy, sweet, and sour at the same time. Slow drinker and pretty boozy.

Overall - Reminds me of Oerbier Reserva. Maybe even a little better.
