COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Flemish Oud Bruin, with lactobacillus, fermented in Bordeaux and whisky barrels, and afterwards blended. Not very sour , the bordeaux barrels really take center stage. Supremely sophisticated woody aged malt flavor. Mild milky to a whisky dense caramel malt base. Nice blend which gives a distinct more "serious" malt base from the whisky compared to many other Flemish oud bruins, as a consequence the body is more full and smooth.

Bott 75cl @ brasserie420 Light brown reddish color, longlasting foam. Light acetic aroma, some sweet fruit to it. Fruity tastes, peach, apricot, mildly sweet. Nice straitforward aceticnes, but not in your face! A great interpretation of this stile!

On draught at pre-Zythos bash, Alvinne, March 2009. Orange/amber colour with nice condition. Very good old brown style. Has plenty of woody, old musty, vaguely mushroomy (in a good way) character in the aroma. More woody vinous notes on the palate, maybe some licorice and raisiny fruit. The sourness is more of an edge than full on. Doesn’t have too much clashing sweetness that some beers in this style have. Good drinking stuff.

Bottle at Wildeman. Murky amber body with slight head. Nose of fruits, and cheesy. Taste is also of fruits with sourness. Not too much, which is nice. Malts and caramel also up front. Pretty good.

leaparsons (7953) - Leicester, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - NOV 14, 2009
Bottle. Hazy brown and red with a small beige foam. Aromas are berries and bready yeast with herbal notes. Some agricultural cheesy notes. Flavours are yeasty with raisins and berries. Musty with only a light sourness. Vinous with some floral aspects. OK.

ricke (476) - Malme, SWEDEN - NOV 9, 2009
UPDATED: JAN 16, 2010 Bottle. The pour is reddish brown and slightly hazy with a small tanned head. Some lacings. The smell is primarily of tart fruits, malts and surprisingly prominent notes of oak barrel and wet wood. Hints of sweet fruits as well. The smell is somewhat sweet and only mildly bitter with a restrained character of Oud bruin. Nice malty flavors and more rustic oak barrel aromas. Hints of vinous tart and sweet berries, vanilla and vinegar. The finish is dry and mildly bitter with a hint of something in the line of sweetish fruity alcohol. Moderate body, refreshing and easy to drink. I liked this one. It certainly isn’t very sour, but it has a nice general barrel aged Oud bruin character.

Bottle provided by JohnC at the Socal sour tasting at stone. Glad to be able to try this. Pours brown with a tan ring. Nose is sweet and tart. Taste is muddled and pretty dissapointing.

Thanks to Papsoe for the bottle. I brought this to Dr. Bill’s SoCal Sour Tasting. When compared next to all the other sour ales, this one wasn’t very sour. I guess if there were a ’subdued sour’ this was it.

Tried at 11/07/09 Socal Sour tasting at Dr Bills/Stone. Way over the top oxidized hops. No sourness. Not much else. Not as good as I was hoping, but I still really enjoyed the opportunity to try this rare beer.

Bottle. Pours a slightly hazy amber color with a small off-white head. Has a sweetish malty sour vinegar aroma. Sweetish fruity malty oak flavor with hints of red wine. Sweetish fruity malty finish.
