1.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 6/20
375 ml paper-wrapped plain bottle bought at Craftissimo in Tsim Sha Tsui East.
Looks: Clear, deep burgundy colour; One and a quarter finger head and crumpety light beige foam which lasts for 2 minutes; Very good sticky lacing with near zero carbonation.
Aroma: Fragrant full malt, with fair red wine, very light balsamic vinegar, lactic, yoghurt, light grape skin, black cherry, light funk and very light tannic.
Taste: Moderately sour malt, with yoghurt, faint red vinegar, hint of red wine, very light wood barrel, and light yeast.
Body: Mid to light; Watery palate.
Mouth Feel: Like a diluted Oud Bruin. From maltyness, tartness, vinegar, wine, etc., all down to barely testable level. No fruitiness, almost no sweetness. Bare hint of funk, very light barrel. No!
Hoppiness: None, maybe a hint of lemon in nose. Otherwise it’s lowly tartness non-finish.
After Taste: Wet; Very light sour and easy to mouth.
Comments: Like the regular Rodenbach, this is water-downed to the point it trades the style richness for easy popular drinkability. There’s no point to put out a Oud Bruin that’s so devoid of tastes in rich malt, tartness, Balsamic and barrel. Feel like drinking water, even a fairly decent aroma can’t save this. Avoid!

A superior oud bruin. I’ve seen this for years but tried for the first time on tap in Omaha at Darios. Nice mellow sourness with a lingering sweetness. Reddish brown.

3.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Very interesting aroma, vinous full brandy type aroma. Sweet wine, lambic with sour lemon vinegar taste but a little too sour to be beer, consider this beer as a malt cider or barley wine that’s

Deep ruby to brown colour, one finger thick rocky head. Aroma of dry & sour fruit, phenols, leather. Light body. Oily texture. Medium sour taste with fruity & yeasty profile. Low bitterness. I don’t think I’d drink it regularly but it was a nice one time experience.

Coloração marrom avermelhada,espuma cor de canela com boa formação e duração;aroma bem frutado,ácido,me lembrou maça verde;no sabor azedume predomina,notando-se um leve dulçor do malte ao fundo,alta carbonatação,refrescante,final extra seco. Não é um estilo em que eu sou fã,mas é uma bela cerveja..
