I can't remember the last time I had anew Holland beer that I cared for or enough to ever want to buy again, lets see if they can change that with a stab of one of my favorite styles....
A: pours a silky looking clear amberish red/brown with a half inch light khaki head, has a good looking carbonation with a medium number of average sized bubbles
S:Smells like a good sour but not super sour smelling, hope its more sour that it smells, no hops aroma or maltyness to speak of some slight nuttiness perhaps from the oak.
T: wow! this is amazing, starts of mediumly sour, but after getting half way through the glass it gets more and more intense!! there is a good subtle nuttiness in the aftertaste as well
M: medium carbonation with a slightly silky mid palate and a bit of a dry aftertaste.
O.a: I would definitely buy this again, price point is great too!

Vintage 2012. Deep ruby body. Faint soapy suds on the surface.

Beautiful Flemish red nose. Dripping with mellow oak, with some tartness.

Tart, quite so. Pretty funky, and some grape. A bit of oak character as well, it's well developed even for being young. Really quintessential oud bruin and for all the mellowness and richness, the finish is marvelously dry.

Mouthfeel is nice and smooth, supports the taste.

This would be a good one to get another and sit on for a year or so.

10oz snifter poured at The Cask Cafe in Richmond. At first, I wasn't keen on the flavor. Cold it was dry like a dry wine. The sour was strong and I had to wait for the finish to get the fruit. Still, it hung out in my mouth for a while, dry and wine-like.

As the glass warmed up, flavors of cocoa and fig come through. Maybe a touch of prune juice. The bubbles remain, making the roasty dark brew pretty light. Lots more sweetness and juiciness come though for the remainder of the glass. The dry feeling is long gone. This one packs a soothing punch. A sipper, at least until it gets warm. Then it's all delicious.

Serving type: on-tap
