3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle at Patricks. It pours an unclear, orange-golden body and a dense light beige head. It’s lightly sourish one, with some maltyness and a touch of berries. Smooth on the palate, medium to full body, maybe a bit too effervescent. Sourness and a touch of caramel in the flavor. A light honey touch too. Lasting finish. Sure a tasteful and pleasant one, although there’s a sugary touch too it. 120317

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draught in Rome during a visit in mid December.
Reminded me of a Rodenbach in many ways: colour for a start, hazy though, then the aroma and taste. Maybe a little more sour, but it wasn’t too sour, even for me (I’m not really a sour puss sort of drinker).
Pleased I had it, but one was enough.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at Brower’s in Fremont.
Listed as 6.2% ABV at pub.
Pours a figgy cherry brown, almost like a diaphonous cola. Little surface foam is light tan and carries little appeal. Nose is dry oak, sour apple, hints of yeast (?) like a French yeast - a bit nutty. Interesting. Up front cherry, moderately tart and slightly sweet. The yeast character is in here as well, kinda suits the sweetness a bit and offers a more complex approach to the style than many Oud Bruin’s I’ve had. Seems to cut the oak dryness and bitterness I sometimes experience and dislike in the style. Full bodied and almost creamy with a slightly dry finish. This is an interesting beer and nice to try.
Serving type: on-tap

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tasted on 11/25/13 from a capped 330mL bottle purchased at Holy Grale. Pours hazy burnt orange with some yeast chunks settling at the bottom of my glass, and a very thick tan head that slowly recedes to thick, uneven lace. The nose is sour with some red fruit notes, plenty of citrus, and some brown sugar malt with a touch of vanilla/caramel oak. The flavor is fairly light, and quite funky, leaning toward some oxidation, with the citrus sour notes, malt, and barrel all coming through, although a bit more diminished. The body is light with fizzy carbonation and a medium sour, funky, and brown sugar malt finish.
