Evan's pick from Premier Gourmet in Bufflo NY
Bottle into Founders snifter.

A- Slightly hazy yellow pour. Finger width white head that quickly deflates leaving a thin cap. Lacing is surprisingly nice.

S- Lemon and grape skins. Slight grass with a bit of tart and funk.

T- Starts off with a bit of funk and than smooths out a bit from the oak. Than a tart kick in the tongue with grape and lemon juice.

M- Prickly carbonation with mouth watering tartness.

O- I think Evan made a great choice. Hefty pricetag though at $4.97 a bottle.

A - Pours a slightly hazy honey color with almost two fingers of white head. Head has pretty good retention. Leaves only scant lacing.

S - Tart, with sour apple and a bit of vinegar, some wood notes, and earthy yeast.

T - Again, tart up front, though the earthy funk nicely complements the sour fruit and vinegar tastes. Some oak and a mild sweetness come in midway, though the finish is crisp, tart and dry with some wood notes.

M - Light crisp mouthfeel that finishes dry and earthy.

O - An enjoyable Oud Bruin, if not as good or complex as the best of the style. Still, I would have this again.
