Bottle receiver as extra in trade. Thank you umich03jm! Pours hazy reddish brown with a rather small reddish beige head that leaves a small trace on the glass while dissipating. Smell is sweet, sour and fruity with dark bread, caramel, lemon, cherry juice, hay, soil, moist wood, barnyard, lemon zest and hints of balsamic vinegar. Taste is sweet, slightly sour and fruity with dark bread, biscuits, lemon juice, cherry juice, moist wood, moist soil, hay, barnyard, leather, kumquats and lemon zest. Mouthfeel is round, tiny dry, tart, tiny boozy and medium to fu bodied. Finish is tiny sweet and sour with dark bread, caramel, butterscotch, lemon, cherries, moist soil, moist hay, moist wood, barnyard, kumquats and lemon zest. Really cool! Very balanced which I didn’t expect. Perfect sweetness, sourness and fruit juice mix. Yummy but no way it’s 12+% strong.

’11 Bottle in January ’14 from flandersned-thanks, Steve! Muddelled brown red. Huge tart cherry nose, light mustiness. Full bodied, sweet and sour pure cherry flavor, light spice. Cherry overwhelms whatever oud bruin characteristics this might have, but for the purity and intensity of it, I can forgive it. Kind of blown away how much fruit is still on this 3 years in.

tectactoe (2632) - Michigan, USA - JAN 16, 2015
Bottle: Review based on 2010 vintage @ about 3 years old. Rich walnut color. Ruby borders, darker mahogany center. Chubby, light-tan head rests on top, receding pretty quickly to nothing. Swift kick of sour cherries on the nose up front, layered with toffee candy, sweet molasses, mild black licorice, warming sherry-like booze, & a nice waft of musty lacto. First sip is even more tart than I was expecting. Incredibly tart. Sour. Huge black cherry flavor, borderline puckering, over a blanket of devistatingly sweet malts. Toasted caramel, buttery toffee, mild anise, molasses, sherry, blackcurrant, faint vanilla, & a nice finish of red grape & cherry skin that provides a drying, vinous, nearly tannic feel on the aftertaste. Slightly acetic with hints of balsamic vinegar that never overpower. Much more complex than expected. Newer (younger) vintages are not as sour but should evolve with time. Either way, unique & delicious beer. Great stuff. So, so dope.

HonusWagner (1638) - Florida, USA - NOV 16, 2014
UPDATED: DEC 8, 2014 Really, really sweet cherry dominant beer. Doesn’t have too much of the acetic acid quality that most oud bruins have, which is nice, but also just kinda like a lesser version of a Wisconsin Belgian Red or Phoenix Kriek.

Cherry oud bruin bottle. Pours a dark amber with small white head. The aroma is cardboard, old sponge, yeast. Thin mouthfeel with jammy cherry, booze, yeast, very good.

Low carbonation with slight warmth. Intense, tart dark cherry taste and smell. Not very sour and almost doesn’t even taste like a beer. Aftertaste is bittersweet with some brett and oak character to it.

Dogbrick (8887) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - SEP 16, 2014
2010 bottle. Pours a brownish-amber color with a thin beige head that diminishes quickly to an outer ring. Minimal lacing on the glass. Aroma of dark fruit, grainy malt and oak. Full-bodied with flavors of cherries, earthy malt, caramel and wood. The finish is fruity with a toasty malt and cherry aftertaste. Pretty good all around.
