The body had a bright golden color than darker near the edges. The head was effervescent and lively with a fair amount of retention.

The aroma is deeply fruity with more orchard than tropical. I certainly catch the aromas of pear and Apple with a bit of straw, but tones of oak, lemon, peach and earth can definitely be had.

The flavor reminds me of a Golden Ale with a strong pear and Apple flavor. The oak is subdued but trace evidence is found on the palate. Notes of earthy straw and lemon help to stabilize the finish.

The feel is quite lively on the tongue but never harsh and very light.

This is a very good beer, despite it not being what I'd expect from an Oud Bruin.

A- Lighter than I expected. Not much head but it's a sour.
S- I really enjoyed the smell. Nice sour/tart smell with a little sweetness followed by a hint of oak.
T- More sour than sweet. Real clean sourness with oak in the finish.
M- Light on the body with lots of bubbles.
O- Great for building the palate up to more complexed sours but more easily attainable than others. This is a beer that helped introduce me to a style I'd otherwise ignore. Thank you Petrus and may I somehow receive one of your wooden casks.

A: Poured a hazy golden orange with a frothy 2 finger white head that left a spotchy trail lacing down the sides of the glass.

S: really spicy, fruity, and tart with some oranges, apples and sour dough.

T: The initial flavor had a nice, subtle tartness, with sour fruit (apples, pears) with a slight yeastiness and sour dough notes. There was a noticeable lemony citrus hopping with some sour oranges and a peppery finish.

M: tingly and lively from the abundant carbonation and was slightly acidic.

D: A nice crisp, dry tart drinking aged pale that was unique with just enough to keep it interesting and one you could easily drink in multiples due to is smooth and eloquent sourness.

Bottle: Poured a yellow color ale with an average pure white foamy head with some retention and minimal lacing. Aroma consists of Brett and oak notes with some barnyard funky notes. Taste is also dominated by some Brett notes with distinctive notes of barnyard and funk. Oak is also present but no vinous notes could be detected. Full body with good carbonation. Very well done and easily drinkable.
