Draft at Fermentation. Deep amber red pour with a soapy tan head. Aroma is sour cherries, red wine vinegar, oak and lactic acid. Flavor is oak, tart dried fruits, vinegar and backing caramel malts. Medium bodied with a quick, dry and tart finish. Not bad, just missing some things.

kermis (4290) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - APR 18, 2014
Draft at Moeder Lambic Fontainas. Pours hazy amber with an off white head. Aroma of malt, grain, caramel and a light smoke aspect. Flavour is over moderate sweet with the oak coming out in the palate. Medium bodied with soft carbonation.

BrunoSanchez (17) - Fermo, ITALY - APR 13, 2014
Capavoro italiano! abrata ruggine con schiuma evanescente. Al naso spuntano note vinose ed speziate. In bocca acidità e sentori di incenso, legno, chiodi di garofano e vino. Finale aromatico persistente e piacevolissimo. Consigliatissima agli amanti delle acide tipo lambic.

Oakes (11831) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 19, 2014
Murky brown, has a Liefmans-esque fruity tartness w subtle chocolatey malts. Acetic, slightly astringent bit with stone fruit bitterness, vinous notes, and other fun stuff. Serious, proper Belgian sour.

BlackHaddock (3183) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - JAN 26, 2014
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.

harrymel (1448) - Spokane, Washington, USA - DEC 7, 2013
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 07-28-2012

Opaque dark ruby color, good creamy beige head, lace. Tart, fruity, earthy aroma. Medium-bodied. Fruity-berryish, tartish flavor but also some cellary notes. Tart cherry aftertaste. Decent.
