On tap at D’s Six Pax and Dogz near Pittsburgh. Pours opaque reddish brown with a creamy tan head. Aroma of sour black cherries, some sweet malts, not much going on. A or follows with tart black cherries, sweet caramel malts, just a bit of sour. Medium plus palate with low medium carbonation. Not bad but there are better examples out there. I’d happily have it again though.

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.

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.
