4/5 rDev -3.8%
Well rounded for the style. A palate grinder after a pint, not a palate smasher. Dark reddish brown. A foamy head. Mouthwatering tart cherry flavours. Above average mouthfeel. Lacey. Saaz hops, Belgian yeast. Carbonation is right there.
Great drinkability. Bottle from Whole Foods Tampa.

Thanks to ehammond1 for sharing this one at MrHirschybar's place!
Pours a murky brown with a tan head that settles to a film on the top of the beer. Small dots of lace stick to the glass on the drink down. Smell is of sour fruits, funk, and some vinegar notes. Taste is the same with very nice funky and sour flavors. This beer has a light level of carbonation with a crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a very good beer and I am very happy I finally got to try it.

From the bottle at the Bruery and Cigar City salon at SAVOR 2011. Served in a SAVOR goblet.
Pours a somewhat-murky tawny red color with a small off-white head that sticks around a bit before falling into a thin collar. Some sparse lacing. The nose brings a slight amount of bread plus a good dosing of brown sugar. These characteristics fall beneath the semi-strong notes of cherry and oak with mild acetic character. Good acidity throughout. The flavor has brown sugar and cherry along with some oak and tannin. Moderate acidity and light sweetness for a really nice balance. Medium body and average carbonation. Really solid brew.

Appearance: Pours a root beer brown color with a modest head that leaves some streaky lace behind
Smell: Cranberry, black cherry, leathery tannins, oak and balsamic vinegar
Taste: Cranberry and black cherry flavors arrive first, with a growing acetic sourness that adds leather/oaky undertones by mid-palate; after the swallow, the sweet and tart tones of balsamic vinegar arrive to add another layer of complexity, though the sweet fruit elements linger underneath
Mouthfeel: Medium body with low carbonation; rather puckery
Overall: While I would prefer a bit more carbonation and perhaps a touch more flavor complexity, this is a very nice beer and it will be interesting to see how it develops

on tap at the ccb tasting room, i was thrilled to be able to try this one, served in a snifter and consumed on 4/13/2011.
nice dark brown, almost a cherry wood color with light ruby highlights peaking around the edges of the glass. a small tan head rises up, not too high but never fades leaving nice concentric lacing all the way down.
aroma is wonderfully balanced, just a fantastic blend of tart cherries, wood, light notes of vinegar, plums, all sorts of dark fruits and a wonderfully balanced sour profile. smooth and effortless each sip was truly a pleasure and really set this apart with its depth. hints of leather, tobacco, smooth fruit notes, a touch of vanilla in the finish, it literally had it all and really you could not ask for much more. nice and clear with the long lasting note of cherry on the palate, i coul have drank this all night long.
overall this was a fantastic beer, seriously top notch and cannot wait to have again.

Bottle: Poured a hazy deep burgundy color ale with a large foamy head with good retention and some light lacing. Aromas of oak and sour notes are quite powerful with light tannin notes are also perceptible. Taste is a complex mix between some sour notes with some oak and some tannin and balsamic vinegar notes. Body is quite full with good carbonation and no apparent alcohol. The description is quite right about this beer being an imperial Flanders red – interesting though not something I could drink in large quantities in one serving considering it is quite sour with a tad too much of acidity.

On-tap at The Bruery
A: The pour is garnet in color with a finger, maybe finger and a half, tall off-white head.
S: Smells great. Lots of oak and wine. The vinegar notes are minimal, which is a big plus for me. Some cherry skins and pits with a touch of leather. Maybe a bit of chocolate and sweet balsamic vinegar. Nicely tart overall.
T: Nicely sour with only a minimal amount of it coming from vinegar. Very oaky, especially on the finish, which is dry and tannic. Hints of sweetness provide a little balance. More fruit notes on the flavor, particularly cherries and red wine.
M: Medium in body with a moderate carbonation and a dry, puckering finish.
O: Damn this was good. Probably the best of the Bruery sour beers thus far.

Served in a Gale Sayers shaker pint glass.
Big thanks to Trxxpaxxs for this bottle!
Reviewed blind as part of Blind BIF 6. It pours a cloudy sienna (with a nice dark core) topped by a little over a finger of dirty tan foam. The nose comprises red apple skin, red grapes, lightly tart orange, cinnamon, toffee, light clove, and a kiss of fig. The taste brings in more red apple skin, generally mild vinegar, spicy grapes (wine-like ones, y'know), toffee, clove, raisins, tart mandarin orange, and a touch of grapefruit peel. The body is a light-ish medium, with a light moderate carbonation and a lightly grainy, generally smooth, and fluid feel. Overall, a very nice brew, one that definitely lived up to its good press.

Poured into a Duvel tulip at 50º.
It pours an attractive dark crimson that has bright highlights. Slowly rising carbonation that forms a thin quarter inch layer of tan foam that soon dissipates, leaving irregular spotty lace to one side. Second pour brought out some painterly swaths of lace.
Woody, oaky spice, fall leaves, leather, cherry, pipe tobacco. Pretty textbook for a traditional Oud Bruin, though it has some nuanced complexity.
Moderately tart, tannic cherry pit and skins, juicy dark cherry flesh. Light acidity, balanced and mellow. Dry finish with oaky traces, salivary glands still working overtime. Medium bodied with easygoing carbonation. Bright tartness, savory oak and cherry fruitiness. Pleasant, though not quite as complex as Oude Tart. Worth a try for Flanders fans.

Draft at Beer Revolution.
Dark reddish-brown topped by a thin crown. Tart raspberry/blackberry aroma, very vinous, reminiscent of red wine vinegar. Hay-like funk, reserved acetic sourness with a little brown malt beneath. Sharply sour on the tongue, exhibiting a nice balance of acetic and lactic sourness with a lean toward the acetic side. Blackberry fruitiness, integrated oak and some nice vinous dryness in the finish. Easily one of the best American oud bruins I've tried, and probably The Bruery's best sour beer so far. Impressive.

On-tap at Hopleaf. Served in a tulip glass.
A - Served with a finger of tan foam that settles to a thick collar and partial cap. Lightly hazed reddish body and a few splotches of lace as well.
S - Red wine vinegar, oak, vanilla, leather, light tobacco, some nice funk and acetobacter. As it warms some guava acidity creeps in.
T - The taste is a bit sweeter - some brown malt character and vanilla. Some nice pucker, very tart, pleasant sour cherry and other nebulous fruits, and mild acetobacter. Alcohol is very well-hidden.
M - Nice carbonation zest, dry moisture-destroying tartness. Medium-full body, with some tannic oak in the finish and light residual stickiness.
D - I had two glasses of this one, and if it hadn't been $10 for a tulip I probably would have had more. Might have to get a couple bottles for the cellar, although the balance of sourness and malt character is already well-balanced at this stage. Impressive collaboration beer that is stronger than the sours made individually by these two breweries - hope they hook up again. Alcohol is very well-hidden.

Beer served at the SAVOR salon with the Bruery, thanks Patrick. Beer is rusty colored with a mild haze. The head is thin and brown, tiny bubbles, some lacing, looks good.
Aroma is quite sour, bright acetic acid and lactic, very nice aroma.
Beer is a little sweet but very sour, strongly lactic, great tartness at the back, acetic brightness overall a good beer. The finish is dry but overall it is really nice. I"d have it again.
