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

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
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 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

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.
