More Flemish style beers! More! More!!

Lots of thick goop on the bottle cap and on the top of the bottle.

This one looks good and has a nice nose to it. Sour vinegar, woody, cherry, somewhat earthy funk going on as well on the flavor. The typical stuff really, which is good. Gets a little thin on the backside a bit too early, in my opinion. But what is there is nice. I could certainly go for more of this, though definitely not at the price point.

Popping the cap reveals very little carbonation--bordering on flat. I don't hold the lack of head against a sour beer, but I do hold flatness against them. The nose is sour and vinous. Flavor: extremely acidic and vinegary. A tad fruity. But really, this is a very uninteresting Flemish brown, one-dimensional, all sourness with nothing else to offer. I could imagine mixing this with something else to get an interesting beer, but not at the price it's sold at.

Makes me wish I had bought a Rodenbach instead.

Bought from Little Wine and Liquor in Denver, CO. 2013 version. Love the bottle design.

A&S: When I opened the beer something seemed off, there was pretty much no carbonation. Walnut colored beer with unfiltered elements. Not super aromatic but it pleasant and contain citrus sourness and oak.

T&M: More bland than I remember. Fruity sourness, cherry tartness with a touch of malty tones. Not super sour like I remember more just tart. No carbonation, low medium body. Smooth just dead.

Overall: I tried this beer during a store tasting and it was much better than this bottle. Something could have occurred during the secondary fermentation in the particular bottle, because the beer was uncarbonated and not nearly as sour as before. On the higher side of my beer spending limits going at 11 bucks for 12.7oz.

was very excited to try this one, one of my favorite styles...
A: brownish red or reddish brown in color with absolutely no head at all, no lacing to speak of either, no bubbles...this is gonna be flat isn't it....
S: smells wonderfully sour, no maltyness or hops to speak of in the aroma, smells of old sour wine and some woodsiness.
T:the sourness of this beer is second only to one Cuvee De Jacobins is the only beer I've had that is just as sour or more, Blake says it's like drinking a warhead and I concur! unfortunately this is the high note for the beer
M: Epic fail! completely flat, no carbonation at all, has the mouthfeel of water, very sour water, I'm figuring the cap must have been bad, this would be a great beer if it had some carbonation to it.
O.a. idk if I'd risk buying this again for 10 bucks a bottle just to have another bad cap.

another classic oud bruin, its really sour, more sour than many others, drinking more like lambic or gueuze, without a ton of malt color or nose leaning me towards a brown. hazy pale color, with just light brown hints, some blonde in there. the nose is really tart, lemon acid, lactic sourness, all the usual bacterial suspects, distinctly belgian, but i don't get the roast brown malt base that makes the style what it is. as a sour, its outstanding, but as an oud bruin, its a little short on the grain side. in body too, it doesn't quite have the heft of others, but its sourness already limits how quick i can drink it. it almost burns my lips, haven't had one this sour in some time. really a ton of acid on it, lemon notes as it burns on the way down. its missing malt flavor and body for it to be right on for the style, but the flavor is just awesome as a sour. great tartness beyond refreshment. fun beer, my first from these guys.
