A-Pours a toasted caramel color. Hints of ruby. Body is clear. Head is fluffy and off-white. The head dies down to a jagged layer of froth. Plentiful lacing.

S-Tartness derived from dried fruit aromas. Lactic and oaky. Lingering sweetness. Yeasty and a bit musty. High in lactic aroma.

T-Far less tart than the nose. More of a basic flavor here. Brown maltiness, wet toast and yeast. Far lighter notes of oak. Less tart and lactic. Sweet, ripe fruits. Fruit leather rolls. Soggy toasted malts and residual sweetness.

M-Medium bodied. Almost light bodied. Soft creaminess with buzzing carbonation. Semi-dry. Drinkable enough.

O/D-Not super tart or funky but that is okay because I don't think I would have liked an ramped-up version of what the nose was offering.

Enjoyed this 12oz bottle out of a tulip glass at Harrington’s Pub in National Harbor, MD.

A: Pours a dark ruby hue with a decent, 2-finger, tannish head that slowly dissipates down the slide of glass ending in a wispy lace.

S: Strong fruity and malty aroma. Lots of dark fruits that is slightly sweet and sour.

T: Tart dark fruit up front followed by a solid malty background with hints of oak and cherries in the finish.

M: Thick body and medium carbonation.

O: Excellent Oud Bruin. One of the best I’ve had. Easily drinkable and excellent flavors and aromas.

Bottle with a BB date of 7/23/14.
A-Clear reddish brown with a fluffy sticky tan head.
S-Very beery, lots of alcohol and malt.
T-Brown notes of grainy toasted malt with a oaky characteristic evident.
M-Highly carbonated, medium bodied.
O-An interesting brew. Some sourness, lots of oaky wood flavor and brown notes. Not overwhelming and pretty easy to drink. An interesting style for sure. I think this is the first oud bruin that I've tried so don't have anything to compare it with. First thought is it's a decent change of pace but not a style of beer I'll be craving, but time will tell.

look: 3 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 3.5

A: Nice brown colour, almost no head

S: Sour cherries, hint of wood, a bit like wine classic oud bruin

T: Basic the same as the taste, although a bit bland, the sourness turns sweet fairly fast, ther is something dusty at the end.

M: Under carbonated, a bit thin

O: It's a descent beer in it's style, but certainly not the best in it's style
