3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft. Reddish copper hue with a very thin head of white thatís quickly gone. The aroma displays bracing acidity -- vinegar, green apple, a sweet cherry Jolly Rancher and apple juice backbone. This acidity doesnít arrive on the tongue until the swallow, but when it does itís a puckering, wake-you-up tartness. Some sweet, buttery caramel offers balance, and red apples are there again. It has the tartness of a Flemish red, but is lacking in the oaky complexity of the styleís better examples.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at the Mayor. Appearance: finger pink white head, red copper color, cloudy, poor lacing. Aroma: tart funky fruit, caramel, light mettalic notes, very faint almost smokey aroma. Palate: oily texture, soft carbonation, light body. Taste: sweet caramel for a split second then on into puckering tartness that is overpowering, with a light note of smokiness. Overall, very unique, smokiness and oiliness are a bit off for me, but still very enjoyable.

From a can into a wheat glass. Pours a nice brown. An inch or so of white fizzy head. Tart winey nose. Mouthfeel is light as it should be. Taste is sour. That's a good thing. It's also mineraly lemony winey and grape soday. Not much depth of flavor unfortunately. Decent but not good. Glad I tried it and a good price to boot.

On tap @ GABF. Dark amber/light brown with an off-white head. Lots of sour dark fruits on the nose. Grape, black cherry, and raisin. A touch of plum, lots of red wine vinegar, and some caramel. Flavor is very, very acetic. A bit harsh, in fact. Light caramel sweetness, some grape, raisin, and plum. Red wine vinegar, solvent, and green apples.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a deep brown color with almost no head.
The aroma is oaky in almost a veneered oak kind of way, the roastiness is light but noticeable with lots of funkyiness and just a touch of vinegar.
The flavor is tart and sour with a mild oakiness. Lightly fruity with some rich woodness. Very refreshing, very well put together, not overly complex with good control on the acetic character.
a great example of the style.

I didnít think this was a great beer and needed a little more sweetness to balance it but well done to Destihl for trying an Oud Bruin. Serving: Tap
