On tap at Bullfrog Brewery in Williamsport, PA.

This one pours a light murky brown, with a small head, and no lacing.

Smells like sour cherry, caramel, lactic sourness and slight red wine vinegar.

I wish the base was a bit bolder here, as I only get some light caramel, and not much other discernible character. The cherries are nice, though, a sweet and sour musty character. There's a hint of red wine vinegar on the finish, kind of to be expected for an oud bruin. It's nothing offputting.

This is medium bodied, slightly chewy, with a good level of carbonation.

This is decent, but not Bullfrog's best sour effort.

Good tart pick-up leading the way, less of a lactic sour & more tart, the cherry definitely comes through, good mouthfeel, refreshing.

Growler poured into a thistle. The brew appears a hazed mahogany color with yellow around the edges when held to the light. Some ruby clarity in the middle and a light khaki head that fades leaving spotty lace on the glass.

The smell is that of cherry and minerals somewhat lactic and fruity with alcohol. A citrus quality emerges that is lemony. The cherry and alcohol imparts a bit of medicinal feel coupled with earth.

The flavor is almost meaty with an over-ripe to rotten cherry taste. Some minerals and earth couple with citrus character to impart a lemony lactic feel. Some dusty grain is present like the base brew.

This is a medium bodied brew with a modest amount of carbonation. It is a pleasant flanders sort of brew but without the typical acedic or vinegar notes. This brew is a bit muted when cold but really gets better as it warms. It is interesting to note that on tap I greatly preferred the kriek version of the Jong Bruin but in growler form I think i favor the Druiven.
