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.

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.

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 (4498) - 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.
