Pours a murky super dark reddish-brown with a foamy khaki head that fades to nothing. No lacing on the drink down. There is a swirl of thick yeast that sticks together in a large clump in the glass after the pour. Smell is slightly sour with malt, fruit, funk, vinegar, and acidic aromas. Taste is much the same with sour malt, dark fruit, wood, acidic, and slight vinegar flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of acidity on the palate with each sip. This beer has a low level of carbonation with an almost flat mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer with an interesting combination of dark fruit and vinegar characteristics that work together slightly better in the smell to me.

Serving type: bottle.

Bought at Liquor Shed.

No foam in the pour, it's an opaque brownish red colour.

Big sour nose of vinegar, dark fruits, cherries. I'm diving in.

Deliciously sour with everything I've already mentioned. I yearn for another sip.

Despite the lack of foam, there's a nice level of carbonation.

Simply excellent!

look: 3.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

A - An opaque dark amber color, with some red hues.

S - Tart tangy, dry sour oak.

T - Definitely sour and tart. Crisp and dry with a nice oak character throughout. There is a certain earthiness here, really almost fungal in flavor.

M - Dry on the palate, tart and mildly puckering. Fizzy carbonation.

O - An interesting beer. Wild, natural, earthy, tart. A nice representation of the style.

Almost unhopped. Big fan of Flemish styles, hopefully this doesn't disappoint.
Pours dark copper, poor head that pops off quickly, leaving absolutely nothing, just some bubbles on the side of the glass. Looks like coke.
Smell of vinegar, some sour cherries, lactobacillus, decent amount of caramel and faint sweet dark fruit. Not bad at all.
Huge punch of sourness in the start: tons of vinegar and lemon zest, makes you cringe (just at first) and completely dries your mouth (which is not bad, it actually makes you want more). Dry twigs, leather, some hay funk, dry tobacco, toasty maltiness, something like almost burnt cake crust and a faint touch of cocoa powder. A very small pinch of sweet brown sugar. As expected, almost no hop bitterness in the finish, just very dry, with woody notes and quinine.
Light bodied, almost watery, medium carbonation. Very dry finish, but i really dig the aftertaste, quite fruity.
Expected this to be a flop. It's actually something that most sour beer fans should try. Very educational and actually quite tasty.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 5 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.75

A: deep red brown and lightly hazed. Decent one finger head that disappears so fast you wonder if it was a trick of the light

S: big toasty malts, molasses, chocolate, grapes, brown sugar and dark rum

T: the above led me to think it was going to be sweeter than the average oude bruin. No, it is anything but sweet. Chocolate malt comes through big, and a huge lash of sour. Woody in a good way. Sour grapes

M: looks and smells like it could be syrupy. nope: bitingly refreshing and light for a dark beer.

O: I may not have tried everything in the oude world, but I know what I like. I think I have a new favorite sour
