It had a sourness that wasn't overwhelming and made me taste buds pucker but not for long. It's a unique sour beer that one should try to expierence the vast varitey of brews.

As someone who is not well versed in sours, this is delicious! The sourness is there but not overbearing. Black cherries, sweet malt, nutty, some funk. Medium carbonation. It's pretty light and one dimensional. Clean finish. Although I can tell this is pretty tame for a sour, it's fantastic. A very welcome and unique departure from the usual of IPA's, stouts, and pale ales. Definitely worth a try.

I hesitate to even review this, given that I don't think I like the Oud Bruin style (i.e. ignore the rating). That said, this seems to fit the style well. Strong, full aroma of oak and tannins, puckery mouthfeel, and a mild sourness in both the lead and finish. Persistent head, pretty red-brown color. Worth trying if you're into sour beers.

Nutty and grassy, refreshing to an unusual degree for a tart brew. this is a great beer for people like myself who like sours, but haven't yet acquired the taste for the most extreme, puckering outer limit of the style. If that describes you, this beer is probably underrated.

Good sour fruit flavors, cherries, maybe green apple, and grapes. I did not pick up anything from the wood. The finish is very nice with lingering flavors of grape juice..
