First had: on tap at TJ's, Paoli, PA
This one seems to be getting a bad rap, but I quite liked it as a finishing/dessert beer.
Dark reddish-brown pour, with a moderate off-white head that receded to a thick ringlet, and left a bit of lacing on the glass. Not sure why this is classified as an oud bruin when it's more of a Flanders red, but oh well. Aroma thick with cherry candy, and not a whole lot else. Taste of cherry pie and cherry candy, caramel malts, moderately medicinal, but nothing really different than you might get from a Rodenbach Grand Cru or Kasteel Rouge. Some tartness, but I really wouldn't call it a defining characteristic. Medium body, and pretty easily drinkable...for a dessert beer; I wouldn't start a session with it, or drink it at any other time really, unless I was really in the mood.
I mixed a little bit in a separate glass with some Voodoo Cowbell, and it was quite dandy.
Serving type: on-tap
