11.2oz bottle into a tulip.
A: Clear golden body. Head builds fast, then recess . Lots of lace on the glass.
S: Sour. Cherries and white wine. A woody character mixed with the malts. Aromatic scent, very distinct.
T: Pucker up, this is a sour beer. Takes a few minutes to adjust to the acidic sour of this beer. Once adjusted, there are hints of fruits, specifically cherries, and a slightly vinous character. Has some earthiness to it as well, suspect that comes from the oak barrels it rests in during the aging process. No bitterness at all.
M: Light body, mildly carbonated, tries to be dry but then the sweetness of the malt kicks in then it goes dry again. Finishes neatly.
N: You couldn't session this beer, but why would you? Its something you bring out to change things up. It is so tart to start, but then it mellows. Would go well with a tangy cheese and some classical music. This is a beer to be sipped and savored.

On draft at Monk's Cafe in Philly. I tried this head-to-head with the Monk's Flemish Sour Ale. Although this was a very good Oud Bruin, it paled in comparison the the Monk's version. Very session able and may have received a higher rating if I had it on a different session but much weaker in taste and higher in alcohol. Basically the light version of the Monk's Flemish with higher ABV. Personally, I rate based on flavor, not for speed of inebriation.
Serving type: on-tap
