Kansas

3.73/5  rDev -8.4%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Enjoyed on tap at Bier Station in Kansas City out of a small Belgian-style tulip glass.

Appearance - Pours a shiny golden translucent color with blonde highlights and some patches of darker brass. Head is bright white and two fingers thick, consisting of extremely fine bubbles with just a few larger bubbles smattered throughout. Takes a few minutes to dissipate, leaving a opaque curtains of lacing coating the sides of the glass.

Smell - Very enticing, with the dominant aroma of Granny Smith and pineapple along with notes of wet hay, a little bit of barnyard funk, fresh lemon and some acidic vinegary characteristics. Some faint astringency that ends up providing a kick without ruining the smell. Actually, I like the sinus-clearing aspect of it.

Taste - A lot of similar profiles to the smell, with more green apple, now with some Anjou pear and now I get some oak and other elements of fragrant wood on the finish. Reminiscent of chardonnay with some characteristics of tannin.

Mouthfeel - Light bodied with aggressive carbonation and a very dry finish that almost leaves you grasping for a glass of water... or another sip of delicious beer.

Overall, a very tasty beer that's lighter in character than most oud bruins that I've had the pleasure to sample. It makes it a little more refreshing, but also a little bit one-note in my opinion.
