Consumed September 10th, 2013 at Blue Dog Beer Tavern, Sherman Oaks, CA.
Beer is presented in a Chimay chalice. Beer is a clear, deep amber, bordering on brown. Virtually no head, just a little crown around the edges. Minimal lacing.
Aroma is cherries. Tart cherries.
Flavor follows nose, with the addition of bitterness and a wood character. Cherry is full, rich and rounded, balanced between sweet and tart. Not very bitter on the finish, oddly. There must be some sort of nice malt base to prevent the beer form just tasting like nothing but fruit, but I couldn't isolate anything.
Refreshing, despite its ABV.
Medium-bodied with low but acceptable levels of carbonation.
In the face of the potential for making a cough syrup beer, the brewers in this case have pulled off a successful blending of a fruit beer and an oud bruin. The cherry flavor could probably stand to be a little more restrained, but I'm not complaining.
Serving type: on-tap

750mL into a tulip. Pours a hazy mahogany w/ a 1-finger head that settles to a layer of khaki foam and a soft collar.
Aroma is sweet and oaky, mildly tart.
Taste is almost candy sweet, tempered by a mild oaky sour quality. Really has a "red" taste, like a cherry lollipop or tropical fruit punch. But that first impression gives way through the sip to the drier, more oaky quality on the finish.
Mouthfeel is balanced and crisp, light to medium body. Lively carbonation.
Overall a surprisingly different take on a Flanders oud bruin. Not my favorite, but I enjoyed trying it.

M: Heavier than expected, which is quite pleasing! In fact, the mouth on this one is one of the best parts.
O: A very nice brew. I love sours and this one is on the top of the list for me so far.
