Poured into a tulip glass.
This brew is a deep, reddish brown colored ale that has a 1/2 inch thick head that quicly fades to a thin cover. When I look at it, it is very reminiscent of a burgundy.
Smells of sour apples, grapes and spice.
Tastes of tart fruityness. Predominantly sour apple up front, but can also taste grapes with a sweet, dark cherry finish. A very complex brew that manages a nice balancing act between sweet and sour. I borely notice the alcohol.
Smooth mouthfeel with active, pleasant carbonation.
This is the second Flanders Oud Bruin I've had and the first I've reviewed. This is very different from most brews and it is refreshingly so. This is one to be savored once in a while and to sit back and relax with - let it warm up a bit. The cork in this one was dated 2011 and I wonder how complex this would be had I not greedily popped it open after having it only two months. Oh well, maybe next time.

Purchased at the LCBO 750ml bottle for just under $9.00. Served at 4deg C in a draught glass
A- Opens well pours with little head. Settles to a film and stays. Dark brown and cloudy.
S- Cherry and malt.
T- Sour cherry. Not quite ready yet. Needs time to blend. Raspberries will come through later when this thing calms down. Think that that will be a while though.
M- Tart and dry. Rather carbonated which is good for aging. Looking forward to having this one on a few years.
O- Pretty good. Way too young to drink. Will save the others for a few years down the line
This way too young fruit beer goes well with... Spicy chicken with green vegetables. Keeping it open for you to substitute in what you like as this beer will work well with many combinations.
