Had on tap. Now if you are expecting a traditional oud bruin, you might rate this lower. But if looking for a forward thinking twist with tons of flavor, give this one a try. Great use of sweet fruits and flavors off the nose and foretaste, cherry, currant, sugarcane, caramel, plum, and sherry come to mind. The smell get some yeast to finish, where the taste rounds out with yeast, some oak, and chestnut. Really enjoyed this foray into the style

The beer comes in a dark reddish brown, murky and all.

The beer hits of dark fruit up front with black cherry, tart plum, combined with the balance of toffee sweetness, huge notes of sherry with hints of alcohol and vinous qualities onto toasted oak on the back end.

This was a slightly hazy, ruddy looking chestnut brown. It came with a short lived, fizzy brown head.

Smells and tastes mostly of apple cider vinegar. There were hints of stone fruit and oak but this lacked the depth of a world class Flanders. This is pretty damn close to the real deal though. I am very glad I got to try this and I find myself more and more intrigued by Free Will.
