3.11/5  rDev -15.5%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.25

Served from bottle into a Petrus glass.

A: Amber-brown, with head that quickly receded to a thin cap
S: A bit of malt mixed with sour funk. This is probably correct for the Oud Bruin style, but I personally didn't like it. If it wasn't the style, I would mark the score lower.
T: Like the smell. Same comments about style.
M: Full mouthfeel with a bit of prickly carbonation
O: Probably a good representative of the style, but my taste for the style hasn't developed enough for me to enjoy this fully or to be able to rate it accurately versus other oud bruins for example.

3.76/5  rDev +2.2%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

330ml Bottle from the Las Vegas Whole Foods for $5

Appearance - Burgundy/brown colour with an average size fizzy/frothy beige head. There is an average amount of carbonation showing and there is some faint lacing. The head lasted for 3-4 minutes before it was gone.

Smell - Malts, wood, vinegar

Taste & Mouth - There is an above average amount of carbonation and I can taste malts, citric notes and raspberries/cherries. There is also some vinegar, wood, and it ends with a lightly tart aftertaste.

Overall - Not as much barrel/wood type flasvour as I was expecting. Also not as tart/sour as most beers within this style. Flavours are nice though and it is easy to drink.

3.61/5  rDev -1.9%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

A: Pours a dark ruby color but in the glass it looks pitch black, which I think is odd for this style of beer but it still looks solid, no head on the pour

S: I'm honestly only getting tart cherry from it, which is promising for the taste but it is strange that that is the only smell presented from this beer

T: Some funkiness, light tart cherry, and light oak presence, not a whole lot going on here but it's good

M: Good mouthfeel to this beer, light crisp, and refreshing like a sour should be

O: Not a bad beer, worth a try but wouldn't frequently purchase this

4.09/5  rDev +11.1%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A- deep ruby with a tan head, sheets of lacing that run down the sides of the glass.

S- toffee, dried cranberry, and that lovely balsamic vinegar note that many sour ales take on. As it warms it reveals concentrated cherry and a dense aroma of oak.

T- sweeter than expected. Nice toffee notes, sour cherry intertwined with some toasty oak, and a mild herbal hop bitterness.

M- light, refreshing, aggressive prickly carbonation.

O- nice, actually, excellent.
