Poured from a 750 ml bottle in to a La Fin Du Monde tulip. Noticeable hiss as the cap is popped open and some foam rises and mildly overflows the lip.

Color is a shiny brown with some ruby highlights when held up to the light. Large light tan head dissipates quickly leaving very little lacing behind.

Nose is tart cherry and oak. Mild lactic acid comes through along with other dark fruits including red grape, blackberry, and currants.

First sip induces a mild pucker with tart cherry of the nose also the predominate flavor. Smooth oakiness balances the lactic sourness. Some vinegar in the aftertaste.

Crisp carbonated mouth feel which tingles the tongue. Medium bodied.

Overall, a crisp easy to drink oud bruin. Sourness is mild enough that this could be a good introduction to someone new to sour styles.

750 from 2010 drank Dec 14.
Quite possibly the best sour brown I have ever had!
Rich, fruity, everything Flemish brown but done so well it is just ridiculously delicious.
Compared to Rodenbauch 2010 Vintage Brl-144 but even tastier and more complex.
SOMETHING is going ON in Switzerland!
Not cheap but for good reason!

Poured from a 750 mL bottle (capped, I believe) into a Brewer's Art goblet. Moderate hand. No identifiable date.

A: Dark ruby-colored body. Opaque in the glass. 1.5 finger tan head that seems dense for the style. Good retention. Light lacing.

S: Tart citric/lactic acid. Cherry. Lighter raisin. Faintly soapy. Soy. A bit of cacao.

T: Citric acid sour with a touch of vinegar/acetic acid. Mild, partially balancing, sweetness in the middle. This trails out to a dry finish with an certain astringent bite. Lingering lactic acid, lemon-type sour on the palate. Burns a bit at the back of the throat. Fairly damn sour. Minimal alcohol.

M: Moderate carbonation with a medium body. Smooth, with substance and a light effervescent attack.

O: Solidly sour with some nice layers.

Prost!

Tart, vinegar-like aroma with an odd funk bordering on partially digested dark fruits. Berry, cider-like, sour flavor well balanced with a mild dark fruit sweetness. Hint of oak and cocoa. Dry feel. Sticky on the lips. Near perfection all around.
