Pours a medium brown with a slight red tinge. A light tan head has good retention. No lacing.
Light acetic and lactic aromas are teemed with a brown sugar and caramel sweetness. Dates and figs come through as well. Not bad but doesn't really have an X-factor.
The initial attack is quite sweet with a raw, brown sugar sweetness. The mid palate is better developed with some light acetic sourness helping to cut the sugar. It still seems a bit out of balance towards the sweet. I get a hint of clove and indescript fruit. It's okay (and is reasonably to style for an Old Bruin) but seems a bit muddled and doesn't fall into place for me.
Medium body and low to moderate carbonation are true to style. A slight acetic harshness lingers at the back of the throat.
A reasonably tasty beer but it doesn't quite do it for me. The flavours are muddled on the palate and lack structure. I can't see me drinking much of this.
