Sour dark fruits aroma. Nice dark sugar and sour flavour. Hardly any carbonation. Some metallic aftertaste, though.

tom10101 (2217) - Quebec, CANADA - APR 2, 2014
Bottle (250 ml). Almost clear reddish brown wwith small off-white head and some lacing. Taste is mild with red fruits, no vinegar notes, light acidic presence and caramel. Taste is also mild with red fruits, light caramel and hints of acidity. Light body. Moderate carbonation. Very soft Oud Bruin, but still tasty. A good one to initiate someone to the style. There’s not enough complexity, deepness, acidity and wood/barrel presence to compete with the best of the style.

MrHult (105) - SWEDEN - MAR 24, 2014
Flaska från Belgianbeerz.com. Mörkt röd med lågt ljust skum. Doftar svagt av malt och surt. Smakar först surt med körsbärton men övergår till svarta vinbär. Helt ok.

ClubGonzo (3509) - Bergen, NORWAY - MAR 24, 2014
On tap @ Henrik, Bergen. Pours a deep red-hued brown body with a medium off-white head. Aroma is almond essence, vanilla, raisins, fizzy fruit-flavored candy powder, hints of caramel. Taste is red fruits, raisins, the afore mentioned candy powder and hints of vanilla and caramel. Light and rather watery body, soft carbonation. A bit bland IMO, but Oud Bruin is not really my cup of tea anyhow.
