Look: amber/light brown beer that is semi-translucent
Smell: tart cherry, cider, little wood, little malt
Taste: sour cherry, some interesting spice and is lingering in the background,
Feel: crisp and grab mouthfeel, I think it fits really well, wouldn't change anything
Overall: crisp and tart, very refreshing

Poured from a 750mL into a tulip.

Pours very dark brown, but fairly clear with good effervescent head that quickly subsides leaving excellent lacing.

The aromas are simple but solid. Acidic fruited tartness (cider, cherry) with woody and just a touch of caramel malt sweetness.

Flavors of spiced apple, sour cherry, sweet plum, oak and acidic red-wine are present but muted. Although this style doesn't need to be a malic-acid bomb, this iteration seems a touch sweet and reserved.

The brew has a nice light feel, but could use more carbonation.

This is a solid delivery on a favorite style, but is a little too sweet and could use some carbonation and acid.

From notes 10/31/11: The pour is deep reddish brown but produces little more than a collar ring for a head. A delicate sour taste, super aroma and easy to drink. I regret I didn't take detailed notes on each. I'll pick up another bottle for more detailed analysis.

From a bottle. Medium brown color with a thin lacing of bubbles. Mildly sour smell. Medium feel with low carbonation. Dark malt flavors combined with fruity sour notes. An interesting mix, to be sure.

Too sour for me, this one is a weird style that I'm not really into. The astringent bacterial what have you doesn't work for me, I like a more complex character. Pass

Unknown vintage; drank 7/22/19 @ the Yarchives.

See-through purple/brown appearance.

A rough pour yielded a big khaki head; strong, frothy lace.

Tart blackberry, Merlot, oak & booze heat notes in the nose.

Medium mouthfeel.

Merlot, oak, blackberry & booze heat flavors; this was a mildly unpleasant mix.

Not one I'll return too.

Very nice, poured from bottle to tulip glass. Mahogany in color with decent carbonation and not much head to speak of. Well balanced, with lots of woody, nutty goodness against fruity and slightly tart flavors.

Poured into snifter. Barely a ring of head. Color a rich layered brown.

Dark grain, dark fruit on the nose, jelly. Incredibly balanced taste, not very sour thanks to dark malts. Mouth is slightly dry and heavy.

If I only could only drink Belgian beer for the rest of my life, I'd be very poor. And this would be a primary reason.

From the bottle, it pours a lovely clear brown with a modest head, soon diminishing to a thin layer. A hint of sour in the nose and mouth, along with the malt backbone.

Had on draft. Almost no tartness at all. Sweet and very similar to a dubbel. As a dubbel this would be pretty good; I'm honestly not sure how this is supposed to be an oud bruin.

A brown ale with some kettle sour, oaky wood, and maltiness. The sour wood and malty nutty brown ale work well together although I'd prefer it to have been more sour.

The beer is dark brown with a nice foamy head. There is an aroma of tart and sweetness. The fruit seems a mixture of cherry and dark fruits. Nothing is that strong. The beer is the same nothing very strong. Not very tart or fruit. Seems a little boring. The beer is a little watery.

330ml bottle from Good Spirits Co. Wine & Beer, Glasgow (£2.80):
Quite a pleasant & lively beer with some nice tart & sourness showing despite it being quite a dark looking beer & there was some earthy malts in there too. It was a balanced offering that had nice complexity to it & a nice combination of summer fruits & berries that complimented the caramel malts well. It probably wasn't as enjoyable an offering as the brewery's Petrus Aged Pale & I doubt it's a beer that I'd rush back to but I enjoyed it while I was drinking it & don't have many complaints about the beer really.
