4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
33cl bottle. Amazing pour - it simply looks like red wine with a touch of bubbles for a head to line the glass. Extremely bright and vinous nose with hints of red wine, oak, sour cherries, bing cherries, and barnyard funk. Flavors have many notes from the nose, but with much more sweetness involved overall. Thick cabernet notes run throughout - you can definitely tell that the barrels used had to be wet. With the sour red funk lining your palate this brew wafts away slowly after minutes. Beautiful beverage!

3.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Idiosyncratic take on the oud bruin theme with a thin and quickly dissipating head and ’dirty’ brown colour. Powerful aroma of apple, passion fruit, sweet paprika, liquorice, madera, caramel; complex, vinous palate, smooth with the sweet-and-sour one can expect from a typical oud bruin, some bitterish tannines from the bourgogne barrels in the finish, strikingly thin mouthfeel in view of its strength. Interesting beer and again, I applaud all new contributions to the fading oud bruin style.
