A 1 pint 9.4 fl. oz. bottle, with surprisingly no vintage year printed on the label. Poured into a Lost Abbey teku glass.

Appearance: A clear dark brown amber colour with about a half finger off white head that dissipated fairly quickly while leaving only sparse lacing.

Aroma: Vinous red wine, fruity cherry, mixed berries with a light touch of balsamic vinegar and maybe oak.

Taste: Sour, tart, cherry, mixed berries, sharp acidic citrus zest, vinegar, light oak, with vinous wine notes at the end.

Mouthfeel: Dry, acidic, medium bodied with moderate carbonation.

Overall: A solid and enjoyable Oud Bruin with good aroma and flavours.

Poured from 750 mL bottle into snifter.
A: Pours a clear moderately dark brown with deep amber ruby hue at the edges with backlighting. Thin skim of tan head quickly clears to faint remnants at the edges.
S: Nice aroma hits from a good foot away. Fresh bready yeast, fruity (cherry and berry), vinous (red wine) note, cinnamon and other earthy spice, and hints of oak and dry chocolate. Subtle sour in amongst the sweet notes. The wine note in there is superb.
T: Softly sweet caramel malt hits first, quickly followed by tart cherry, sour citrus, dry chocolate, red wine, red berries, toasted oak, and hints of leather and nuts (almond and hazelnuts). Love the fresh wine note and the complexity!
M: Medium heavy body. Moderately viscous feel. Fruit sweetness with secondary sour and tart notes presents a perfect balance. Lingers and matures like a fine wine on the palate. Drinks like a 13% red...but it's a 6% brew. Some kinda black magic going on here...
D: Wow! What a pleasant surprise! Love the wine notes imparted from the cask aging...fresh and juicy with wonderful complexity. Seek it out! Thanks RBC!

A: The beer is hazy brown in color. It poured with wisps of off white bubbles on the surface and a thin collar around the edge of the glass.
S: Light aromas of sourness and vinegar are present in the nose.
T: The taste follows the smell, having sour flavors of vinegar along with notes of oak and hints of cherries.
M: It feels light- to medium-bodied and a little tart on the palate with a low to moderate amount of carbonation.
O: I found this beer to be rather drinkable considering the vinegar in the taste—the oak and cherry-like flavors helped to soften the acidity.
