look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

A: pours a dark brown with a slight scarlet hue with a dense and long lasting off white head that retains very well into a Duvel tulip
S: smells of sourness, sour cherry, and slight vanilla and oak
T: tastes of sour cherry and all sorts of sourness, a slight funk, hint of sweetness, a bit of vanilla and oak and a hint of chocolate maltyness. swallow is quite mellow with some nice oakyness on the finish with a bit more pleasant maltyness and a slight lingering sourness
M: medium in the mouth with slightly vigorous and quite apparent carb that is a bit prickly on the palate. good drying finish as well
O: delicious and delightful. great flavors, great sourness and a decent balance of other flavors. Highly recommended

Pours a dark brown color. One inch head of an off-tan color. Great retention and great lacing. Smells of cherry sourness, alcohol, sweet malt, slight pale malt, and slight oak. Fits the style of a Flander Oud Bruin. Mouth feel is sharp and crisp, with an average carbonation level. Tastes of slight liquor, alcohol, oak, cherry sourness, sweet malt, and slight malt. Overall, great appearance and blend; the body is pleasantly sour and the liquor flavors are not dominate.

750 mL bottle poured into a snifter.

Appearance - Pours with a huge cream head. Deep red/brown body. Never quite settles.

Smell - Very acidic. Nice cherry acidity. Lots of malt and vanilla.

Taste - The malt comes out more here. Malt, oak, and vanilla come through nicely. Extremely sour, but it drops off after the initial taste.

Mouthfeel - Well carbonated. Over sour, but nice.

Overall - I rather enjoy this. Great barrel flavors.

Poured in snifter at brewery. Appearance is a dark brownish red with tan head. Heavy lacing left behind. Nose features tart and sweet qualities with notes of cherry, oak, red wine, and vinegar. Taste has mild tartness up front with a healthy dose of cherry and a bit of tartness at the back of the palate. Not super tart, but definitely some acid. Mouthfeel is light and has low carbonation for style. Overall, a nice and approachable oude bruin with a high amount of sweetness for the style.
