A typical Flemish beer with a pleasant wine-like taste and a rich past. This dark brown beer, which is matured in oak casks, has a slightly acid aftertaste.

Kauge (757) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - MAY 10, 2015
Spontaneous purchase from Järve Selver in Tallinn (375 ml / € 4.09). Too bad about so much paper going to waste... BB in 07/2016. Clear brownish red colour. Head big but drops fast, leaving a thick layer and little lacing. Excellent retention (still there after an hour!). Beige. The nose is fruity (as in near rotten apples), sweet, tart, cherry, maybe even a bit of vanilla, citrus. Tastes acidic, sweet, a lot of tartness in mid-taste, finishing woody and somewhat stale. A watery effect on the palate. Sticky texture. Yum.

At a tasting, many thanks, very cloudy lightish brown color with some rusty hues, aroma of sour fruits, mainly cherries with touches of vanila, metal and sour bread, flavor of plums, nectarine and some cherries. lingering fruity sourness. Really good and very easy to drink.

Bottle sample at a tasting at avrashi’s place. Thanks Tom L. Clear light amber-brown with no head. Aroma of sweet cherry liqueur. Sweet-sour cherry liqueur flavor, a bit acidic, kind of champagne, fruity with semi-dry finish. Lively carbonation, light to medium-bodied. Very good.

brnandersen (2598) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - APR 23, 2015
375 ml. bottle poured in to a Snifter. Dark brown colour with a reddish tinge. Thin, lightly tanned head. Slightly sour aroma with cherries, wood, caramel malts, a bit dusty, citric notes and tart fruits. Taste is lightly sour. Light to medium body with a thinner to creamy texture and a soft carbonation. Finishes dry and lightly sour with cherries, wood and caramel malts. This Oud Bruin is one of the thinner ones I had. No wonder - this has a whopping 4.5 % alcohol. Lacks a bit of the superior complexity and sourness that other Oud Bruins has.

Dark brown, no visible CO2. Huge tan head. Smells of honey, caramel, cider, yeast, cola gummy, a hint of chocolate. Very dry and sour, well balanced. No bitterness at all. Long finish with tinges of blackberry. Very nice.

375 mL bottle from Total Wine, Virginia Beach, VA (bottled May 22, 2014). Light brown pour with a bubbly off-white head. Aroma of apple juice, tart fruit, and light cider vinegar. Taste of green apple, cherry, and lemon zest with noticeable oak on the finish. This is a nicely done beer.
