look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Reddish brown with lasting lace. Soft on tongue. pronounced cherry tart taste, Carbonation and malt balance. Sour but pleasant aftertaste. Dessert, but only one possible..
1.75 years later, lots of lace. Well malted and balanced cherry pie, easy drink. One standard deviation in complexity. (291 characters)

3.39/5  rDev -7.6%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Pours a murky cranberry-brown color with a 1 inch off-white head that fades to a film on the top of the beer. Random streaks and dots of lace form on the glass on the drink down. Smell is of sour fruit, balsalmic vinegar, funk, and some wood aromas. This beer smells very good. Unfortunately, the taste is nowhere near as good as the smell. There are some watery sour fruit flavors and only minor funk and vinegar flavors. I am pretty surprised and bummed out because of this. There is a good level of carbonation with a crisp and bubbly mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer but I am disappointed in the flavors compared to what I expected from the smells. (666 characters)

look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A: single finger very rapidly dissipating head. Very dark brown with a little light getting through.

S: sweet caramel with a sour fruit note, almost cherry aroma.

T: not sure where the oak is in this one. I am getting more of a sour dark fruit and light red wine flavor. Nut notes.

M: moderate carbonation and medium body.

Overall: more sweet than I expected and no oak to spea kof for my palate despite the oak barrel aging. (429 characters)

A: Poured dark brown/amber with a small white head; a thin layer of bubbles consistently covered the surface. There's a medium level of carbonation.
S: The aroma is rather sour with hints of underlying malts and cherries.
T: The flavor is very interesting and complex - a mix of mild sourness with malty sweetness, dark fruits, and oak. The beer is well balanced.
M: The beer feels smooth on the palate and has a light to medium body.
D: This is very easy to drink. The unique flavor leaves me yearning for another. (515 characters)

Bottle at Pizzeria Paradiso in Old Town the other day. Served in a tulip alongside Petrus Aged Pale.

Pours a rusty amber color with a short off-white head and a few spots of lacing on the sides of the glass. The nose carries some light bready malt and a bit of caramel. Amber malt. Some cherry and very light oak and acidity. The flavor brings some moderate malt and a touch of sweetness with light fruits. No real oak or acidity. Way, way off style. I don't get much of even a note of sourness out of this one. While I'm up for interpretation of styles, if you're going to call a beer an "Oud Bruin," it'd better have something more than light malt and a touch of fruit going on. (681 characters)

3.67/5  rDev 0%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Appearance: Pours a clear burnt caramel color with a tan head that bubbles away over time but leaves behind some traces of lacing

Smell: Toasted brown bread, caramel, sour cherries and wood shavings

Taste: The first flavor sensations are somewhat sweet and fruity, with an oaky, cherry flavor that builds upon the caramel and toasty backbone; within a few seconds, the sour flavors start to kick in and continue after the swallow; while the sweetness continues through to the finish, the sour flavors clearly dominate

Mouthfeel: Medium to light bodied and rather fizzy

Drinkability: Not overly sour, but has enough of a sour kick to provide an introduction to the style (673 characters)

look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

textbook version of an oud bruin. pours real dark brown, radiant, with a finger or two of off white suds. the nose is quite sour, vinegary, but with some sweetness from the caramel malts and a hint of tart cherry juice. the sourness isnt as potent in the flavor, but there is still that sort of bacterial acidity that works in beautiful conjunction with the toasted malt and the fruity component that tastes less like cherries than it smells, could be some other red fruit, dried and semisweet. finish is a little puckery from the yeast, but not overwhelming at all. this is sort of the session sour for me, could gladly do several of these. there is a smooth feel, gentle carbonation is just right, but the body i find to be a little thin. i dont need it to be huge or anything, but a little more weight to it would support the complexity a little better. overall though a really nice example of the style, widely available, and reasonably affordable. (952 characters)

look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A thin looking beer that pours a russet color. Initially thinly laced, off-white head eventually falls completely still. No lacing, no legging.

Quite tart and woodsy with sour funkiness that weaves in and out of cherry, dark berries, plumb, grape, and red wine vineous character. Brown malts are partially desolved by the musty yeast, but also retains a medium breadiness and malt flavor.

Malty up front, but thinning at mid palate due to the souring note going into the astringent finish. (492 characters)

Poured a dark red brew with a nice head. Aroma of cherry (probably from coming from the oak) with acidic taste. Body is a bit light and no complexity. I would have appreciated a bit more spice or aftertaste. Overall, this is a very average oud brun and I won't be seeking this one anytime soon. (294 characters)

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Appearance - Dark but clear brown. The off-white head retains for a few minutes before dissipating into a ring.

Smell - A bit musty and vinous. Crisp, oaky sourness in the background.

Taste - Cherry and blackberry with a touch of vanilla and toffee. A very mild mix of sweet and sour; well balanced but a bit bland. I had this on tap recently and enjoyed it much more; it had a pronounced sourness that's absent in the bottled version.

Mouthfeel - Light-bodied and semi-crisp. Very refreshing and easy to drink. (514 characters)

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Lucent crimson-brown with rapidly uprushing carbonation feeding a khaki colored head. Old Brown received the gentlest of pours since I didn't want to add any (suspected) sediment from the rather short 8.4 oz. bottle. Even so, a respectably sized crown has appeared and a thick, high collar of lace frames the surface of the beer quite nicely.

The nose is dark fruity, vinous and intriguing. I don't believe that I can appreciate any oak; perhaps some woodiness will appear on the palate. Disclaimer: I have no idea how a Flanders Oud Bruin is supposed to taste, so keep that in mind.

Sweet and sour dark fruit is the dominant member of the flavor profile, but there's very little power behind it. I can't blame the body/mouthfeel since it seems perfectly calibrated to deliver as much flavor as is present. I taste a pleasant mixture of grapes, raisins and sour cherries with the suggestion of exotic spices. Thankfully, the beer is opening up a bit with warming.

The sourness fades on the swallow and is succeeded by a sweeter, more complex flavor that lingers (beer that tastes better once it's been swallowed; what a concept). The final pour brings not a speck of sediment. Still no oak. The carbonation has an accelerated life cycle over the course of the bottle. The mouthfeel starts out spunky, becomes soft and lush midway through and finishes a little flat. I chose to rate it at its most appealing stage.

There's no question that Old Brown grew on me from first sip to last. However, it wasn't quite able to win me over by the end. My expectations were probably both high and misplaced (it's much more delicate and subtle than anticipated), but, even so, I think that I've given it a fair shake. It was interesting and was enjoyable for the most part, but it probably isn't a beer that I'll look for again. (1,820 characters)

This beer pours a slightly hazy dark reddish-brown, with a multitude of fuzzy, creamy off-white head, that leaves spotty lacing as it fades away. It smells of sour fruit - cherry, apples, and sweet grainy malt. The taste is mild earthy, sour fruit, and roasted caramel malt. The carbonation is moderate, the body a little thin, and it finishes with some lingering fruitiness. An interesting beer, but the advertised woodiness doesn't really assert itself, other than in the roasted malt character. The fruitiness becomes a tad cloying, without the hops to keep things honest - overall, a decent brown ale with a minor sour essence. (631 characters)

Rerate 2008. New labelling, fresher bottle.

Poured the entire bottle into a stemmed Oerbier tulip glass. Label recommends serving at 8-12ºC/46-52ºF. It seemed to taste slightly better at a warmer temperature. One finger of offwhite foam, it managed to maintain some head for the duration of the glass. In the sunlight there was a ruby highlight to it's chestnut brown color.

Aroma at first had a metallic twinge, but it seems to have blown off. Later on there are hints at some lactic tartness when vigorously swirled, but not when standing still. Not much funk at all, but there is a smidge of oak barrel.

Flavor feels like a diluted blend of Oud Bruin and fresh Brown Ale. The ratio tastes about 20/80 in favor of fresh, but the label states it was aged in oak barrels for 20 months. Strange that oak doesn't really come through in the flavor. Tartness is practically nil, there are some malty flavors in the middle, but it lacks liveliness. Watery, grainy aftertaste. It seems much to mellow for an Oud Bruin, and this is a fresh bottle. Carbonation seems to taper off quickly, though it can be finished easily enough. An uninspired brew that left me wanting more...more funk, more wood, more anything. This bland ale isn't really deserving of a top 10 spot for Flanders Oud Bruin...

Old review - 10-12-2006 - bottle
A: 4 S: 4 T: 3.5 M: 3 D: 3.5

Bottle with purplish-red foil. Once poured into a tulip, a thin froth of small bubbles condense and cap the garnet-crimson liquid. Spotty lacing. Smells like alcohol mixed in with lactic funk, and aged hops/grain.

Flavors of mildly acidic tartness, hay, and white grape/cherry juice. Sourness is downplayed, but the finish is moderately dry nonetheless. Mouthfeel is thin and flat, like a Flanders Oud Bruin flavored tea. A little disappointing given the attractive aroma and appearance. Taste seems to dull toward the end of the glass. Next round calls for something different. (1,938 characters)

A - Poured out a cloudy, dark, dark brown color with a one-finger, soapy, off-white head of foam. It left behind sticky, soapy rings of lace.

S - It smelled of dried fruit, mostly cherry with a biscuit malt aroma. Some woody aromas, too.

T - Lots of sour cherry flavor up front with sweet caramel maltiness. Some oak flavor emerges as it warms up.

M - It was soft and smooth with a little fizzy bite. A medium-bodied ale.

D - This is a pretty good flanders oud bruin. Just a touch of sour makes a nice balance. (514 characters)

Purchased at Red Carpet Wine in Glendora and poured into my Bruery tulip glass.

A: The beer pours a dark brown with a slight reddish tint. There is a thin layer of white foam.

S: The primary aroma is roasted malt. This is followed by a slight lactic acid scent and a decent combination of barnyard funk and oak.

T: I have not had too many beers of this style, so I was a bit unsure as to what I should expect. There is definite Brown ale character initially, along with a lactic zing. It is more sweet than sour, with lots of roasted malt and mild oak coming through. On the finish there are slight notes of dark fruits.

M: This beer features plentiful carbonation and a dry mouthfeel, which is something I really enjoy.

D: Moderate alcohol and an effervescent mouthfeel make this beer very drinkable. The flavors and aromas are good, but not great, so I doubt I will have this again at nearly $4 for a 330ml bottle. (922 characters)

Served from tap in a tumbler at Firkin.

Finishing off my day at Firkin by revisiting a beer I vaguely remember trying way back in my NoVa days. It pours a clear midnight tawny topped by a finger or so of dark khaki foam. The nose basically reminds me of a jar (if one were to exist, of course) of maple syrup-laden malt vinegar. The taste flips things a bit, having some tart vinegar tinging dry maple syrup, with a touch of muted brine making a brief cameo near the beginning of the finish. The body is a light medium, with a light moderate carbonation, a slick feel, and a sorta/kinda drying finish. Overall, an odd beer, really, what with its inability to decide on a flavor path (vinegar-leaning or maltily sweet), but it still retains its drinkability. (763 characters)

On-tap 10/2/11 at Doherty’s East Ave Irish Pub in Pawtucket, RI, served in a US tumbler pint glass.

A: The beer is a deep crimson color, with a large off-white head that fades slowly and leaves a thick lace on the glass.

S: The aroma is faint but contains some dark fruit, Belgian yeast and light caramelized malts.

T: The taste starts out with a mild dark fruit and caramel sweetness. Then some mild Belgian yeast comes in and transitions into a mild sourness. The malt character is hearty and the hops presence is very mild but there’s a decent balance. The after-taste is bitter-sweet.

M: Crisp and a little smooth, medium body, medium carbonation, finish is dry but slightly sticky.

D: Tasty, goes down easily, not too filling, mild kick, good representation of style, this is a decent beer but there are better in the style. (838 characters)

Poured from an 11.2 oz brown botttle into a tasting glass. The bottles notes 2 year aging in oak barrels.

A - Deep caramel/cola brown w/ a thin tan head that makes nice lace.

S - Slightly green apple/sour odors w/ gentle grainy notes in the nose.

M - Nice, full effervessence w/ tart fruit feel and gentle sweetness. The finish is malty w/ a grainy texture.

T - Sweet w/ toasty notes and slightly vanilla oak notes. Grainy w/ a slightly sour citrus flavor. Nice gentle spice and yeastiness in the sweet finish.

D - Intense yet quaffable and complex w/ nice balance. I found this to a very fine brown w/ high drinkability. (626 characters)

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

A dark ruby whose head does not stay around for long. Nose is malty with an oak edge showing itself after a strong attempt to draw the scents out. Flavor is fairly smooth and not too distinct. Malt presence is slight. Feel has a bit of carbonation to it that might border on a bit too much...well it would be too much if there were more than what is already present. This is very drinkable for how smooth it is, but the question to be asked is why would you go for this one repeatedly?

This is the last from the 6-pack from Petrus. The "aged pale" is by far the winner. (571 characters)

Pours chestnut with a 1" offwhite head. Zero lacing & head retention

S: Awesome sour/lactic odors

T: An almost sugary sweetness is quickly steamrolled by sourness tartness & dry/wood notes. I also get granny smith apple & vanilla notes as it warms. Finishes with slight tart cherry notes & extreme dryness

MF: Light to medium bodied with a low carbonation level & good balance, adds up to the sensation of licking a Popsicle & running outta of ice cream!

Drinks pretty good, the tartness & dryness make we want to drink at least one more...Definitely one of those beers that made me love my visits in BE, very funky & out of the norm (638 characters)

The only beer that I have ever tried to compare to this beer is the Goudenband, and I really didn't like it very sour. However, the Petrus Oud Bruin definitely found acceptance with my palate and found a spot as one of my favorite most unique beers I have tasted in awhile. Served in a nice sized goblet, this beer gives of a slightly tinted amber brown with an off white rising head. The aroma is that of fruit and malt sweetness, and I found no sourness at all to the smell. The first sip was very sweet, and the fruit and candi sugar sweetness complements with a tart apple sharpness that is very enjoyable. A well done belgium brew that I find may be on of the best, especially within it's style. A medium bodied brew with a pretty good drinkability leaves a nice dryness. The drinkability would be a lot higher, but the sourness may be hard to handle after a few of these. (877 characters)

I believe I've reviewed this afore, but as I haven't yet uploaded the notes from my ever-growing backlog, I figured I'd review it live. Or maybe I just wanted an excuse to drink more Petrus...

BOTTLE: 1 pint 9.4 fl oz. Brown glass. Gold foil covers a gold hood-and-wire cap which cages a cork. Simple label art.

Acquired: At a bottle shop in Austin.

Reviewed live at low altitude in Austin, TX. Side-poured with standard vigor as no carbonation issues are anticipated.

Vintage: This is a blend of 20-30 month old Aged Pale and a second fresh brew.
ABV: 5.5%
Style: Oddly, the label description calls this a Flanders Red Ale (even though the name is obviously Oud Bruin). I'll decide which style to review as as I drink.
Serving temp: Cold. Allowed to warm over the course of consumption.
Serving vessel: Goblet.
Expectations: High (given the brewery).

No bubble show forms as it's poured.

HEAD: 1 finger wide. Off-white. Fair creaminess and thickness. Light lacing sticks to the sides of the glass as the head recedes.

Retention: ~2 minutes. Average.

BODY: Deep dark amber. Not vibrant, but it has a glow when backlit. No yeast or sediment can be seen.

Looks pretty average for a Flanders Red, albeit a bit dark.

AROMA: Lightly tart, with hints of cherry and faint acetic pie crust. Has a kiss of vinegar. Faint oak (more a foeder than barrel presence) guides the beer and lends it natural cohesion. Belgian character is lent by the Belgian yeast, with fruity and lightly sour notes filling it out nicely. Sourness is timid and mild - maybe a 3/10 in terms of intensity. This certainly doesn't suggest a puckering brew, and its relative sweetness indicates its youth. The rawness of the cherry is nice, but a more refined fruit profile and more acetic aroma would be ideal, as would more sourness.

Aromatic intensity: average.

This definitely evokes more a Flanders Red than an Oud Bruin.

TASTE: The faint acetic character is nice, but it doesn't fully commit to the pie crust like it should, and the cherry fruit is too sweet and young; more tartness and sourness would be better. The oak is too timid and weak, but does lend the beer cohesion. Slightly vinegary. Belgian red malts and a kiss of candi sugar provide the odd malt backbone, which feels too sweet for a Flanders Red (or an Oud Bruin, for that matter). The yeast just hasn't taken hold like it should, and the beer isn't sour or tart enough as a result. Sourness is a scant 2-3/10 in terms of intensity; hardly puckerworthy.

Depth of flavour: Average.
Flavour duration: Average.
Flavour intensity: Average.
Flavour amplitude: Above average.

It's not egregiously flawed, but it could and should be so much deeper and more intricate. As-is, it's a balanced cohesive brew, but is reserved and doesn't commit to its flavours. The yeast and bacteria should shine, but they don't have control of the beer.

TEXTURE: Acidity is typical of the style, which is to say it's above average. Smooth, wet, medium-bodied, aptly thick, aptly hefty, and aptly weighty on the palate. Critically, it's not puckering as it should be, and lacks tartness. Well-carbonated.

Not oily, gushed, hot, boozy, astringent, harsh, rough, or scratchy.

This texture fails to accentuate the best notes in the flavour profile - the sourness. As a result, the mouthfeel lags behind the taste in terms of playing to the beer's strengths. Execution is wanting as a result.

OVERALL: This is enjoyable, and will likely get better with age (say, 5 years), but it's just not as rich or well-layered as other traditional Belgian offerings. The discerning drinker will be better served by sticking with Rodenbach, Duchesse de Bourgogne, or Cuvee Des Jacobins Rouge. This is the lesser of the widely distributed classic Flanders Red Ales, and will please fans of the style but won't impress. I'd much sooner take Petrus' other offerings over this, and I think the blend has incorporated far too much of the younger beer. That said, it's highly drinkable, would pair well with salad, and would make a good first sour beer for a newcomer to the category.

Darkness in the glass, a deep brown, thoroughly opaque, 1/2" of creamy foam above.

Aroma: Smooth, spicy, yet complex in the fruit, dark, nearly sour, twisted.

Taste: rich and well-rounded, the brown ale mixed with dark fruit, tasty...oaky...big carbonation, big zest, big fruit, very tasty...did I say that already?

Medium bodied, fullness in the mouth, the brown ale and the cherry, playing happily amidst the oak and the crisp, brisk snap.

Very nice. Enjoy, please. (481 characters)

Beer served on draft at Churchkey in D.C. Served in a tulip. This beer is brown (shocking I know), thin head clings to the edge of the glass and beer interface, no lacing on the glass to speak of, carbonation mild. Beer is completely clear, no haze at all.

Aroma is really interesting, I've never smelled anything quite like this. Its definitely sour, high lactic acid smell but there is some sweetness there as well. The sour is dominant and blocks out the other smell, it prepares you for a super sour beer.

But the beer is not super sour, don't get me wrong, it is sour. Its just not tart. There are some cherry flavors, this beer is sour and not tart, that's the best way I can put it. It finishes comlpetely. It is a palate cleansing beer, completely. I did not remember drinking it seconds after I swallowed. Drinkability high. I had to keep drinking it to analzye it and it was gone, in a few minutes completely gone. Beer has a medium body and a nice mouth feel, hit all the right places on the palate before vaporizing. (1,031 characters)

330 ml bottle into tulip glass, best before 10/3/2013. Pours lightly hazy very dark ruby red color with a 2 finger fairly dense light khaki head with solid retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Light spotty foamy lacing clings on the glass, with some moderate streaming carbonation. Aromas of big grape, pear, apple, raisin, cherry, oak, clove, red wine, vinegar, herbal, hay, musty funk, and yeast earthiness. Nice aromas with good complexity and solid balance of fruity/funky yeast and oak barrel notes; with solid strength. Taste of grape, pear, apple, cherry, raisin, red wine, vinegar, oak, musty funk, herbal, hay, grass, light pepper, and yeast earthiness. Minimal tartness on the finish; with lingering notes of light fruits, cherry, raisin, red wine, vinegar, musty funk, oak, hay, grass, light pepper, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a bit. Nice complexity and balance of fruity/funky yeast flavors; with decent flavor robustness and no cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth and moderately crisp mouthfeel that is good. Alcohol is very well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is a good Flanders brown. Nice balance/complexity and decent robustness of yeast flavors; and very smooth to drink. A nicely enjoyable offering. (1,328 characters)
