22oz bottle poured into tulip - 2010 bottle

Pours a hazed dark cherry color with some brownish tones. Crop of beige head bubbles up, fading into a collar of film with some spotty lacing.

Scents of lactic sourness with dark cherry, red wine and warming oak. Smooth alcohol warmth, funky yeast and currants.

Nice bite of sour right up front (you can feel it in your gums), featuring black cherry, overripe red grape and a touch of raisin. Dark malted tartness continues with oak, red wine, leather and soft dark fruit sweetness. Finishes warm and sour with lingering yeasty notes.

Medium body, decent carbonation, bubbly and dry on the tongue. A top tier Flanders Oud Bruin with a decent balance between the higher abv and fairly aggressive dark sourness.
