Date of back says 03 14, I assume that's when it was bottled?

Poured into a tulip glass.

A- Pours a pretty clear garnet with nice three finger light toffee head.

S- Light dried dark fruit aroma with a light tartness.

T- Medium-light level of tartness, getting those light dried dark fruit notes, doesn't linger on the palate much.

M- Light, a tad watery.

O- Not the best Oud Bruin but a good starter beer for people not used to sours. Tasted like a light Belgian dubbel that was slightly tart.

Pours a hazy, brown color. 1/4 inch head of an off-white color. Decent retention and slight lacing. Smells of tartness, cherries, hint of roasted malt, sweet malt, and yeast. Fits the style of a Flanders Oud Bruin. Mouth feel is sharp and crisp, with average carbonation level. Tastes of hint of roasted malt, sweet malt, yeast, hint of caramel malt, and tart cherries. Overall, decent aroma, good blend, but a little weak body.

Mildly sour. Very sweet with lots off fruit flavors.
