330 mL bottle poured into a goblet.

Appearance - Between copper and golden colored body. Very pale for an Oud Bruin. Small head that doesn't last long. Some lacing on the surface, but not a lot of action, really.

Smell - Sour apples and lemon tartness. A bit of yeastiness lingers, but the tart smells are dominant.

Taste - Much like the smell. Sour apples and citrus tartness. I don't get the oak that other reviews have said, which I kind of like. Very crisp flavor, even if it's not just tart. The aftertaste has just a hint of sweetness, or maybe it's just the sourness dying off.

Mouthfeel - Good carbonation that makes it feel light. It's light in itself, but there is an oily feeling that is left on the tongue after the swallow. Interesting, but not bad.

Overall - I don't think this is an Oud Bruin at all. I'm no expert, but this is too light and has a different sort of sour to it. I really like it, but I don't know about the category.

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.
