Pours a dark reddish color with a one finger cocoa head. Excellent lacing on my snifter glass. Very dark and impossible to see through. The nose is nice- sour fruit, some grain, cherry, plum, and slight alcohol in the background. The taste is nice and tart, with some funk, sour fruit, and a definite bite to the aftertaste. Not quite as complex as I'd hoped, and a little on the sweet side for the style. Still, not shabby at all. Overall, this is a good brew for the style, but you can find better. Cheers.

On tap at Victoire in Rochester, NY.

Pours a dark blood-red, slightly hazy, with no head, and only a little bit of lacing.

Smells like sour cherries, green apple, vinegar, and lactic acid.

The taste is similar. Fairly sweet with cherry flavor up front, almost like slightly less sweet maraschino cherry juice, some acidity washes over the palate, along with similar sour cherry tastes.

Light to medium bodied, medium carbonation. Fairly easy to drink. Slightly syrupy mouthfeel.

This was a pretty good Oud Bruin. It's probably a little sweeter than typical, but that's ok with me.

Serving type: on-tap

Pours a dark brown color free of sediment. Aroma of red wine vinegar, oak and malts.
Mild tartness greets the palate along with brown sugar, port and vinegar. Sherry notes from oxidation, along with a nice cherry flavor. Medium bodied, well carbonated, tart mineral finish. Musty oak, faint herb and grass, but moreso a pretty solid oud bruin ale. Cocoa like malt underneath a light tartness. Overall, pretty good beer here, Id reach for this again.

Smell : sour woody and oak aromas.
Taste & mouthfeel : dry roasted malt flavors, with a slight acidity in finish.
Drinkability : a good beer in the Belgian style Flemish Red Ale, matured in oak barrels.

A- Reddish brown, very little head, dissipated quickly.

S- Sour cherries and Belgian candi sugar, lactic and acetic acid. Very sour nose, quite good.

T- Sourness is milder than the nose, it starts sour and finishes like a quad or non sour grand cru.

M- medium body, slight acid puckering

O- Great beer. Will have again. The sourness is relatively mild and the flavor is not as heavy as others in the style. I will still have it again.
