From a 330 ml foil-capped bottle (brewed in 2011) into a tulip.

A-The head is huge (three-plus fingers) and creamy to start. Retention is OK, not great for the height, but good for the style. The brew is murky, nearly opaque, and reddish in color. Looks like cranberry tea.

S-The aroma is pretty tart, verging on outright sour. I get decent acidity, tart cherries, lots of dry oak, mild earthy funk, and a bit of vanilla. As the beer warms I get more earthy tobacco and leather flavor.

T-The taste has more funkiness and less tart flavors than the smell. I get a lot of dry oak, some earthy leather, as well as raisin tart cherry, and a slightly bitter, dry finish. Once the beer nears room temp, the acidity picks up and I get some lemon tartness. It is still pretty funky and dry, even close to room temp.

M-The feel is well carbonated, but medium to heavy for the style.

O-This is a pretty good take on an oud bruin. The oak is very obvious and this is a complex brew, but found it a little too malty and earthy when compared against the best examples of the style. The interesting thing was that despite the earthiness, the beer was still pretty acidic. Odd....anyway, a good beer but probably not worth the steep price.

A: Pours a cloudy reddish brown with a fair amount of tan head.

S: Lightly tart and sweet, notes of cherry and vinegar.

T: Somewhat bready grainy sweetness, leading into a tarter finish. The aftertaste is dry and pleasant.

M: Medium body, medium carbonation.

Overall, pleasant, and good, but probably too expensive for what it is for me to buy it again.
