4.14/5  rDev -2.4%
look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4.5

On draft at the brewery, listed as including cherry, fig and blueberry.

The body is lacquered cherry wood with a thin, creamy light tan head settling to a thin ring.

Smell is toasted sesame, sticky cherry, fig, a little charred oak, and acetic vinegar--I know for some this is a knock but it's not something that turns me off here.

Taste is smokey, acetic cherry with a sharp, sour burn, but I like it. They've brought a lot of complexity on this, as the palate develops dried leaf, fig, green blueberry, and toasty sesame.

Aside from the amped up sourness, the body is actually smooth, round, slick and sticky at the rim but semi-dry at the end of the swallow.

This beer is a blend of 3 of their Oud Bruins. One with cherry, one with blueberry, and one with figs. Served on-tap in a tulip type of glass, this beer draws a fairly cloudy, deep amber, red color without much head. Just a thin foam ring lining the inside of the glass with barely any lacing. Aromas of some malts, tart and somewhat sour cherry, somewhat sweet and slightly sour blueberry and some fig notes along with some oak. The taste is pretty much the same, with some bready malt notes upfront along with sour tart cherry notes, blueberry tart sweetness, some subtle darker sweet notes from the fig, and some barnyard funk notes and just a hint of salt. No discernible hop presence here to no surprise of course. Has a fairly crisp, yet smooth, medium bodied, minimal to moderate carbonation. Has a clean, mainly dry finish and a great aftertaste. A very good beer here.
