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.

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.

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.
