Impressive large, dense head. Recedes leaving a dome. Deep ruby brown color where a bit of light comes through. Light streaky lace.

Caramelized brown sugar aroma. Some malt and even lighter alcohol to the nose.

Surprisingly sour and not very sweet; nothing like the nose. The finish has some sugar showing up and the sourness becomes more muted. The aftertaste is short-lived. The body is typical; the carbonation is on the lighter side.

Served from tap into a Trappe Door tulip. Poured a vibrant red brown with a two finger off-white head that subsided to a minimal amount quickly. Maintained nice lacing throughout the glass. The aroma was comprised of sweet malt, tart cherry, wood, sour, tart, and very slight funk. The flavor was of sweet malt, tart, tart cherry, wood, raspberries, and subtle funk. It had a light feel on the palate with high carbonation. Overall this was a pretty good brew. Definitely not my favorite from the style but still pretty good. I like how this brew incorporated tart cherry and raspberry into the flavor as this made it much more palatable than some harsher Oud Bruins I have had in the past. A definitely well done brew that I would definitely drink again given the opportunity.

Had on tap at the Taphouse in Hampton, VA

A- No head on this one, I blame that one on the bartender. Plus side was there was more for me to drink. I did have a little bit of lacing along the way as I drank it. Beer looked like a coca cola with tea colored highlights.

S- Tart cherries and sour apples.

T- Tart throughout but it picks up the granny smith towards the end.

M- Feels pretty good, easy to drink.

O- Looking for more distinct flavors but overall it was a good beer.

I had this on-tap at Max's. Served in a goblet.

Appearance: Pours a murky brown with a half finger of off white head that fades to a ring around the glass.

Smell: Mildl vinegar with some dark fruit notes and sweet malt.

Taste: Mild sourness but very smooth. A bit vinegary. Mildly sweet fruit notes, raspberries. Sweet and tart finish.

Mouthfeel: Medium body with mildly tingly carbonation and a slightly dry finish.

Overall: Smooth with a good amount of sourness. I enjoyed the fruit notes, reminded me of raspberries a little bit.
