3.55/5  rDev -15.7%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

A - Amber colored beer, a little bit too clear. Bit of brown head that didn't stay around very long. Slight bit of lace left on the sides.

S - Pretty vinous, maybe a little too much as there's a lot of vinegar in there. Some oak, little bit of tartness and funk along with some fruit.

T - Slight tartness with some sweeter berries. Wood and vinegar. It's a little bit sour, with a little bit of funk. Not bad, but there's a slight bit of mineral or something on the end of this that I found a little unpleasant. Maybe the bottle has turned.

M - Full bodied, very full bodied. Soft carbonation.

O - Not a great beer, merely okay. Had some moderately decent tastes but there was some unpleasantness on the end I didn't care for. Not super easy to drink either.

Another awesome beer sent from johngalt1...

A- Beautiful, rusty amber ruby colored beer. Has a cm of pale khaki head, dense and clingy.

S- Tart cherries, and a slight vanilla aroma. Some horse blanket funk, but mostly just a fruity tartness.

T/M- WTF is in my mouth? Incredibly different. I get a hefty dose of plastic and all around funk in this. Not much tartness in the flavor, but its more of a funky and spoiled maraschino cherry syrup. Finish has an acetic character, but overall it's just bleh. Nice body and smooth carbonation. Great feel!

O- I like different, but this was too different. Not the typical Oud Bruin. It did get better as it warmed, but all in all I didn't feel crazy about this. I appreciate it, but didn't really enjoy it...
