Batch 2, bottle won at a benefit raffle at mikro in hamden.

A. Murky amber brown. Slight head forms then fades.

S. Tart cherries, red wine, vinegar.

T. More vinegar than pleasant tart, but not terrible. Just disappointing. Sweet malts over tart cherries, a tad funky.

M. Tart, astringent, light.

O. Sadly not what I wanted it to be. A good lambic impression but just a little off

Batch 3. Huge thanks out to Emma for sharing an all-time want. Full review done over the weekend.

A- Split into four glasses with a murky, red-brown body. Frothy and foamy off-white head forms to a half finger or so with pretty good retention. A large ring and cloud remains atop the beer. Lacing is pretty hard to come by.

S- Fruity lambic feel in an insanely strong aroma. The Flanders Brown Ale feel is quite nice with some acetic and dried fruit feel. Grapes, super funky Brett, barnyard and a ton of lactic lemony tartness.

T- Complexity is massive in the flavor and this beer really encompasses a large umbrella of things. Most obvious is the intense sourness, just a battering of cheek puckering lactic lemony sour. Brett funk melds in with barnyard, sour cherry and a tiny bit of band aid. Vinous oak, sour grapes, fruit pits, figs, green apples, strawberry and Balsamic vinegar all come to mind.

MF- Light end and superbly dried out body. Carbonation at a high level and the texture is somewhat fizzy and silky like a Lambic. Sourness coats the taste buds and lingers, almost burns.

Superb blend of Flanders vinegar, fruit Lambic and Brett funky feels. One of the most sour brews I can think of in recent memory. Feels like a great mix of a Lambic and a Flanders Bruin.

Served from a 12.7oz bottle into a Crooked Stave tulip. Batch 4. Cellar temp.

Appearance- Very dark tawny color with quick bubbly white head that didn't last long.

Smell- Cherries, raspberries, red grapes, sweet malts, red wine vinegar, vanilla, oak. Absolutely beautiful beer.

Taste- Very layered. Dark stone fruits, tart winey grapes, limes, tobacco, vanilla, oak, raspberries. Sour, but not aggressively so. Phenomenal.

Mouthfeel- Light bodied, medium-full carbonation, medium-full tartness, smooth finish, crisp, clean, refreshing.

Overall- Honestly, I didn't know what to expect from this beer. I figured it'd be good, but it's great. I'd be hard-pressed to find a better Oud Bruin (not even just an american one). Truly phenomenal. I want more.

Pours hazy ruby, small off-white head and decent lacing. Very beautiful in the glass. Aroma is tart lemon, oaky, cherry, vinous, funk, basement. Flavor is initially sweet and fruity with light tartness and a bit of oaky astringency. Dries out on the finish leaving oaky and vinous notes behind. Medium body, very low carbonation.
