Pours a very dark brown tinted red, one finger of khaki colored head, settles to a thin ring, dots of lace down the glass. Smell: balsamic, cherry, brown sugar, note of soured stone fruit. Taste: sour peach, cherry, vanilla-ish note, blackberry, herbal...fair amount of herbal bitterness; not much acidity. Carbonation is a little high and aggressive making it feel unrefined for the style.

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.
