On-tap at O’Briens. $7 for a pint, definitely not worth it. Pours reddish brown with a off-white head of very fine bubbles, decent retention. Smells sour, cherries and a little funk. Tastes of anice balance of cherries and malts, not all that sour. A good bit earthy tasting as well. Medium body, subdued and smooth carbonation.

On tap @ Stone. I actually really enjoyed this beer and thought it would have a little bit better ratings. Pours a hazy dark brown with basically no head. Aroma is of sour fruit. Wasn’t overpowering sour, but still had a nice little sour kick. My girlfriend actually really enjoyed this beer as well. Nice and smooth though...very good.

Flamand "vörös" tölgyfa hordós érleléssel.Ez is olyan mint a Rodenbach,vagy szereti valaki vagy az első ízlelés után feladja.Érdekes a kicsit boros beütés az ízében és az utóíze is különleges száraz,savanykás.Nem rossz de a "Rod" jobban ízlik.Igaz ritkán jön rám a "flamandozás".

Bottled. Deep ambery red colour with mediumsized beige head. Aroma is sour fruits and wood along with some mild notes of earth and vanilla. Flavour is acidic fruits along with wood, some caramel and red berries. Aftertaste gets rather sweet, even though the sourness does show it’s signs also here. Very smooth to drink, and not one of the really sour & acidic ones.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
25 cl bottle, via jbrus. Pours a dark garnet body under a small fizzy beige head that faded to a thin covering. A good bit of visual carbonation. Nose is tart and sweet cherry skins with an earthy undertone. The flavor is just slightly tart, but it seems like it’s trying to hide the tartness with lots of sugar. There’s a dusty earthy flavor on the finish that seems a bit off. Mouthfeel is medium bodied with a slightly sugary stickiness and moderate fizzy carbonation. Overall, this was a pretty weak Oud Bruin that seems to have been tailored to cater to the masses.
