Expensive dainty bottle, split two ways. "Brewed in 2011" on the label.

Reddish brown apple butter color, pretty good clarity with softly textured foam that rises and parts quickly. No lace to speak of.

Very musty aroma, damp cellar and moldy cork at first, which seems to lessen after 15 minutes in the glass. A flash of cherry surfaces later on.

More damp musty wood in the flavor, can't say it really works in the beer's favor (though it can be a potentially positive trait in the right amount). Mild tartness, fruity with a touch of cherry, it finishes dry and fairly nondescript... kind of just drops off. Pretty unimpressed by this, and for the price I probably won't be returning to LoverBeer's lineup any time soon. There are far better Oud Bruins out there.
