A beautifully made, carefully blended, and well-aged sour beer, (it is aged on cherries) made in collaboration with Brouwerij Liefmans of Belgium.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

750 ml bottle poured into a Burley Oak snifter (bottled on 7/4/12)

A: Muddy and murky dark brown with minimal head that vanishes immediately. Fair amount of visible carbonation.

S: Musty, sour, funky and tart. Apples all the way with some rotten cherries.

T: Good level of sour/tartness. Quite refreshing and very light on the palate with only a slight aftertaste. Tart apples and sour cherries. There isn't much complexity here though but that isn't bad.

M: Nice bit of carbonation. Not very noticeable but there in a light and good way.

O: A solid good-tasting Oud Bruin and the best one I have had so far. Also, the best Ommegang I've had so far but it is only the second one.
