3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.
