4.16/5  rDev +3.5%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Pours very dark amber, reddish up into the light. A very thin white head just for a minute, thin lace, a bit sticky.
Smells nice, big vinegar, some sour cherries, amaretto, apple cider, berries, Belgian sugars, faint cocoa and barrel.
Taste starts with tart cherries, just a touch of vinegar, and lots of mixed fruity notes, with raspberries, blackcurrants, red apple, faint banana, yellow pear, faint lemon and red grapes. A clearer malty canvas than other sours, bit of dark bread. Vanilla, candy sugar, cherry pits, nice oak barrel notes, some funky moldy cellar notes too. Very clean finish, low bitterness, sourness goes away completely and leaves a very fruity aftertaste.
Medium body, chewy, medium carbonation. The initial sourness is perfectly balanced by fruity sweetness and (almost) robust malts, making it really easy to drink.
Perfect "gateway" Oud Bruin, packed full with flavour, not too complex for a sour, cheap and simply a great beer.
