2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
750 ml bottle- Pours an extremely hazy orange with minimal head that reduces to a collar. Aroma is extremely malty similar to a barleywine actually. The taste is similar, age has not been kind to this beer, malts similar to a barleywine. The vintage is 2013, PDT is 01/13, about 15 months, a true sour should stand up to much more than this ( possibly the retailer stored it improperly, huge windows shining sunlight right on the bottles?). From what I’ve read its the beer, WTF, extremely malty, not a sour at all!

1L swing top? bottle. Thanks to maniac! March 2014 DC Tasting. Poured a ruby clear color without a real head to speak of. Aroma was malty, sweet notes. Malt finish, some nutty notes. Age has oxidized this a bit (bottle was first opened in Sept), the sour/acid is missing, but was still enjoyable enough.

Bottle. Pours a reddish brown with almost no life at all. Aroma is very thin malty sweet with vague lactic sourness. Flavor is about the same but with a mild rancid butter and bitter finish. Feel is thin and a bit silty with very light carbonation. Shame. I was in the mood for an oud bruin.

2.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours a clear reddish brown with a light tan head and average retention. Aroma of fruity esthers, caramel, plums, figs, prunes and spicy phenols. Taste is tannic, malty and fruity with some carmelization type characters, sweet dried fruits and some earthy characters. Overall its malty and fruity with a faint sourness...needs more sourness and is unbalanced by being too sweet.

From Gene’s. I usually am a big fan of Oud Bruin. While not bad, if you are bad fan of the style you will be disappointed. It is almost a sour for extreme beginners. I don’t think all sours need to be super puckery but this was way too subtle. That being said it wasn’t bad a drink other than a little too sweet. Serving: Bottle

Beers like these are why I sometimes question staying part of the monthly beer club I am part of. No head to speak of and tasted more like a high ABV beer not a measly 6%. Not something I would ever buy.

Bottle: waste of money. More fool me. Sold as a Berliner Wiesse at Bevmo. What a joke. I should have ignored the fool.
Cloudy, copper brown and a crap head. Malty dried fruit aromas. Hardly sour. This is more of an Abbey Ale that’s a little light. Caramel aromas. Low hops. Off dry to slightly sweet, hardly sour to low sourness, and low to medium bitterness. Flabby and mid weight and short.
Just a shame. This is not a real sour beer. No funk or complexity. DONT BE FOOLED!
