4.47/5 rDev +9.8%
look: 3 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.5
A: rich clear gold. big fluffy white head that sticks around for a while. large carbonation bubbles streak to the surface. a beautiful looking beer, but not your typical shade for an oud bruin.
S: sour alcohol. makes my nose want to pucker. definitely has an oak-y aspect in the finish.
T: sweet and sour jolly rancher. this aspect loses some of its intensity with each following sip. crisp, dry, little bit of hop bitterness in the finish that reminds me that it is a pale. at times almost feels like im drinking wine.
M: soft carbonation with that signature tang of a oud bruin. spot on.
D: tart with a little bit of funk. one sip reminds you its a pale and the next reminds you that it was aged in oak.
definitely the appearance of a pale, but the aroma and flavors of a flanders oud bruin. overall, really fun beer.

4.21/5 rDev +3.4%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25
A: 4.5 Crystal clear, pale gold. One-inch off-white head that lasts about a minute.
S: 4 Pretty mild. There’s a good amount of funk at first with some pepper, bread, lemon, and oak.
T: 4.25 Quite tart at first with slightly sweet bready malt closely behind. Lots of white pepper and lemon that go very well with the tart/funk flavors. Very light bitterness on the aftertaste.
M: 4.25 Farily light but not too thin. There’s enough there that makes the beer feel substantial but also leaves you wanting more. The dry finish is very nice, but there could be a bit more carbonation.
O: 4.25 This beer is easy to get and very pleasing if you’re looking to satisfy a sour craving. There are a lot of really nice flavors and a good tartness level. Not quite up there with some of the popular gueuze offerings, but a solid alternative.
