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.

fidelis83 (2125) - Clinton, Iowa, USA - JUN 29, 2013
Slightly hazy, darkish brown pour with a 1 finger, creamy beige head. Aroma is tart fruit, light roast, toast, toasty and vanilla oak, dark caramel, earth and woody funk. Flavor is tart tree fruit, vinegar, toasty oak, vanilla, cereal, light earthy chocolate roast and nutty notes. Light body off dry leading to crisply dry and nicely acidic feel and fairly strong, spritzy carbonation. Good stuff.

rayaron (555) - Kfar Saba, ISRAEL - APR 30, 2015
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 (2298) - 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.

huineman (71) - Madrid, SPAIN - APR 23, 2015
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.

Beerathon (1459) - Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 28, 2015
Brown pour with flecks of red. Slightly "sour", but definitely more malt forward that most beers of the same style. Easy drinking. Distinct Belgian yeast flavoring.
