3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle (small sample). Brown pour. Complex nose - main element is fruit. Taste starts out fruit then moves to something else - kind of funky and hard to describe.

10th May 2008. A brown beer that reminds of Duchesse Du Bourgogne but is much less sour and really quite sweet. Soft mid finish with a hint of sweet coca cola.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a nice ruby color with a small espresso swirl. The aroma is tart and musty while mildly fruity. The flavor is winey and mildly sour with some cranberry, nice but a little off.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
The description sounds awesome, but this beer just isn’t very good. Some oak and malt, with a little sugar, but more of a dry-oak flavor than anything else. What flavor there is, is very light. Thin palate. Disappointing.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle share thanks to rustychiles. Pours a deep red/brown. Aroma is mild sourness, oak, cherries, and chocolate. Taste is lots of chocolate, cherries, and extremely mild oak/sour tang. This is not what I would consider an oud bruin. Much more like a very traditional old ale with the brett touch. Very tasty, just not really to style in my opinion. Quite unexpected.

Bottle courtesy of Tytoanderso.
Pours a reddish brown with a light brown head. Aroma is subtle oak, cherries, touch of funk, some sweetness. Flavor is cherry, oak, yeasts, funk, a very light sourness melds with sweet candi sugars. Drinks way too easy. Good brew, but not what I expected at all.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 oz bottle courtesy of an extra from Beerlando. Thanks, as always, Bryan. Pours a rusty hue, dark but still able to see through, some floaties, with big brownish red head that cakes, laces some, is pretty nice. Aromas push some subtle oak, sour cherries, a touch of caramel, and a touch of funk. Fruity and sweet, but also tart. Initial is light and quencing off the bat, light sour cherries, sweet malts, and oaky dryness combine. The flavors in this beer are light, preaching a little more sweetness in body, with a little tartness coming out on the backend and in the finish. A touch of dryness, under carbonated. A bit too smooth, even creamy, for a beer I want in this style. Sour with some big training wheels. A little bland, boring.
