25 cl bottle (10 12 14) into a tulip. Clear amber brown body, small light tan head, little lacing. Sweet and sour smell of brown sugar, dark fruits, sour cherry and oak. The taste starts with tart vinegar, sweet and sour cherry and raspberry in the middle and dry sour vinegar in the end. Light body, medium carbonation, smooth mouthfeel. An interesting sour beer with flavor. Sour but not overwhelming. The first oud bruin I've had and I liked it.

A: Dark brown with a slight ruby tinge, little carbonation, semi-transparent. Sports 3 fingers of beige head.

S: Sour, balsamic vinegar, black pepper, Worcestershire sauce, steak sauce, floral, raspberries.

T: Worcestershire sauce, steak sauce, black pepper, light sour balsamic vinegar, light unsweetened raspberry juice, some lemon juice as well.

M: Light to medium acidic body, lots of fine foamy carbonation.

O: I tend to love any beer in this style, and this one leans towards how I love it. Unsweetened, apparently not fruited, traditional.

look: 4.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.25

date on the back of the bottle indicates 03 14. small bottle.

A: dark brown hued. head is frothy and is rather thick. a lightly tint of brown. good retention as it has been holding true for a while now.

S: dark fruits, plums and figs. dark malts, caramel or a brown malt. the acidity is actually low on the nose. a little lower than I would prefer.

T: a sharp acidity starts the drink, but it quickly fades and dissipates. it then makes the turn to a slightly malty body, not much as it remains relatively thin throughout, but some roasted/coffee notes can be detected. gets tart again as it thins, but not to the same severity of the first sip. there are even some sweet dark fruit flavors in the middle that I am getting more of as it warms. I am also getting a mild metallic flavor as it warms that I am not crazy about.

M: mild carb, relatively light body.

D: not great in my opinion. I want more acidity, a slightly dryer body and I am not crazy about the mild metallic notes I was getting. still, always fun to a brewers interpretation of this style.
