Thank you Sean! Bottle 283/378 into a Lost Abbey glass...A medium brown, ruby notes. A light tan head with good carbonation, ok retention but poor lacing...The aroma is ok, tons of oak, really reminds me of the slight burnt and overused oak of consecreation or vagabond. Notes of oak, cherry, funk..The taste is a little harsh, the oak still reall comes through, really astringent. The cherries some through a little more here. This is an oud bruin not a flanders red. Super easy to drink. A pretty decent attempt at an oud bruin. Appears to be have been aged too much in oak as it really comes through too much and too harsh. Maybe give it some more time?

Tart pungent aroma. Light brown caramel color. Enough tart flavor to be entertained but not so much to make you run for the hills. Smooths out a bit as it warms with a little red fruit and some nuttiness and wood flavors.
