Nose is red wine vinegar-like, sour no smell of hops. Taste is similar as aroma, not really good.

The body has a brownish or an old tarnished copper color that is nearly opaque. Near the sides of the glass there is a lot of visible carbonation streaming up to the top of the glass. This constant flow of tiny little bubbles helps to maintain a thick and foamy head, which is off white in color. Head retention is excellent and lacing is very good as well. The aroma has a tart and slightly sour fruity malty character with just a hint of citrus. Its flavor is pleasantly tart with a good solid malty base that is in good balance to its fruity tartness. A mildly tart oak flavor also adds another layer of complexity. The texture is refreshing with a lively carbonation and solid medium body that is quite drinkable. Overall this was very enjoyable.

Odeurs de bois mouillé et cerises noires. Robe brune aux reflets ruby. Mince en bouche, bulles légères quasi absentes. Douce-amère, agréablement acidulée. Le goût primaire tombe rapidement pour laisser un voile d’arômes boisées très plaisant, pas envahissant.

Sigmund (4958) - Tau, NORWAY - MAY 24, 2014
UPDATED: MAY 26, 2014 On tap at Cardinal Pub & Bar, Stavanger. Cloudy brown colour, moderate off-white head. Aroma of red wine vinegar, malt vinegar and malts. Moderately sour and vinegary flavour, some sweetness and malts, no sign of hops. Watery body. Not really my thing.

On tap @ Henrik. This is a light cloudy deep dark brown one with her a slight red hue and a medium sized sidesticking big top. On the nose it’s as expected quite tart, woody and sour fruity. There is also a strong unpleasantly in the aroma that I’m having a hard time identifying. Almost a sulfur thing? Not sure. It has a really thin and light feeling in the mouth and the carbonation is soft but quite stingy. Woody tart with a ton of sour grains and public swimming pool. Bah, this was a but of a disappointment actually. It’s also quite sugary without being too sweet. Tart dry in the first is with traces of bitter bad nuts, old chocolate and mud. Well, no risk of me intentionally purchasing this again. 25.10.2013

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

tom10101 (2665) - 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 (204) - 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.

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.
