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. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Draft. From notes. This brew is quite sour. Tart and funky. Maybe a hint of woody oak in there.

brokensail (12359) - Orange County, California, USA - OCT 16, 2013
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.

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 didn’t 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

beernbourbon (1366) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - APR 12, 2010
Pour is deep hazy brown with very little head to speak of. Aroma is woody, lightly tart, and faintly fruity. Smells like I would expect an Oud Bruin to smell. Flavor follows suit with notable wood mixed in with light tartness and light fruity notes.

On draught at Destihl. Pours a dark copper hue with notes of cherry and a nose similar to a good scotch ale. On the palate is less sourness than one might expect, and instead toasted oak (guessing this is spending some time on oak or bourbon), Montmorency cherry, orange zest, cardamom, and a toasty finish. Among the sour ales, it reminded me of Panil Barrique. I’m happy to see Destihl breaking new ground, as this was one of several excellent feature beers.
