Style | ABV
Flanders Oud Bruin |  10.50% ABV

Availability: Limited (brewed once)

Notes/Commercial Description:
Brewed to the Oud Bruin style with orange and lemon zest, then aged in Makers Mark barrels where the brewers added classic holiday fruits such as cranberries, figs, dates and raisins. Paying homage to the fruitcakes granny used to make with the only difference being, you won't want to re-gift this one!

Served on tap into a snifter glass.

A- Poured a dark reddish brown with no head and no lace.

S- Very astringent nail polish aroma, some booze, and light fruity notes mostly of cherry.

T- Very astringent notes, nail polish, some lactic sourness, some cherry, cranberry, and it finishes with a strange bitterness.

M- Prickly carbonation, fuller bodied, a little boozy.

O- This just did not come together for me. The booziness was a little harsh and the astringency was too much for me. I was able to finish my glass, but nothing I would get again.
