Dark brown with red tinge and a low off white head.

Smells of clay earth leather and red strawberry, cherry and currants. Sweetness on the nose like red fruit gummy candy.

Earthy and old mahogany. Dank like an old basement and old library books. But then the fruit kicks in and its lively and fresh. Slightly sweet but balanced with sour. Cherry is dominant on the end.

Excellent light sweet tart finish. Dry and satisfying.

The downside here is that the extremes are too far apart. Too old then fresh. Sweet then tart. The cherry sometimes comes off artificial like cough syrup. Not my favorite, and kriek has never been my favorite, but a curious exercise in beer none the less.

Color looks like tea or cola to me with a course head, that flattens into velvet, then quite thin. Smells obviously cheery like with an earthy component. Tastes like a cheery beer, but not candied nor contrived, it's balanced as well as I could imagine it being. I saw tart in the descriptions, but it's not something I would think major in the taste profile. It drinks smooth, slightly rich, as I expected it to be and it goes down well. A bit pricey in these parts, but worth it for the right occasion, like Tuesdays. Awesome beverage. I recommend it.

An excellent beer! It's mostly sweet, with a (great, but not too great) touch of tartness from the cherry. The fact that it is not so tart make it a very drinkable beer in any situation. No hoppiness at all.

One year old bottle 330 into a tulip glass. !/2 in beige head, only lasted a few minutes. Pronounced aroma of vinegar. Also a vinegar taste on the back of the throat after swallowing. Not my favourite style but we'll see how it develops over the next several years.

Had it on tap at a Houston steak house, served in a tulip glass. Gorgeous purplish red color topped with a pinkish head and great lacing. Fragrant sour cherry smell. Taste was tart and pleasantly fruity. Some warm spice notes to finish. A very pleasant beer that was great with the food!

11.2oz bottle bb May 2021 poured into a signature Ommegang chalice at fridge temp 5.6% ABV. The beer pours a medium brown color with red tinted tan colored head. The head recedes in minutes to a thin ring and cap leaving a little lacing. The aroma is faint with an old ale smell that indicates wood exposure (although it's not mentioned). There is a hint of cherry in aroma also. The taste is sour, with a slightly sweet edge, and cherry. There is a bit of malt presence as well.
Mouthfeel is thin to medium bodied, well carbonated and undry in the finish. Overall, good. My first Oud Bruin, and I am far less offended by it, that other sour styles I've tried in the past. Nice complexity and a pleasant experience.

A finely carbonated rich blend of cherry sweet and tart tastes.
