COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our Brewmaster Dan launched his Wild Fruit Cave this winter brewing Oud Bruin, a Flander’’s style ale that is immensely complex both tart and sweet. Soft toffee notes lead with a blend of Wisconsin, Brittish, and German malts that first rested in the Coolship before spontaneously fermenting on oak in the cave. Hallertau hops, matured in the horse barn, elegantly support sparkling fruit notes that frolic before a punctuated oak finish. 100% naturally fermented in oak vessels this is an elegant beer that can be enjoyed now or the patient few can lay in their cellar to age. Thanks for supporting the arts! Daniel & Deborah Carey

12oz bottle with samdueche. Light ruby with medium white head. Tart nose. Sour, but nice. Good balance and good finish. Solid medium fuzzy body. Surprisingly good.

kaser (4920) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JAN 18, 2016
Poured from 12oz bottle at home. Cloudy and red, white head, bottle foamed all over the place upon opening. Decent sour - dry and fruity champagne notes.

burg326 (5093) - Florida, USA - DEC 18, 2015
Poured a deep red almost brown color with aromas of vinegar, light sour cherries, and some wet wood. Flavors matched the aromas decent, but couldn’t dink more than a bottle of this, too much vinegar for my likening.

tricyclist (1124) - Florida, USA - SEP 2, 2015
Large sample pour of moderate to deep amber with a khaki head. Nose is sweeter, mild caramel notes with balsamic/soy, typical of the style. Flavor follows, not overly sour but noticeable cherry tartness. 13052015

surprised the percentiles aren’t higher on this - a fantastic take on the style. Really dialed in and elegant. Sour cherry and oak, but not overdone. Love the malt used. I could drink a TON of this, and I seem to say that about a lot of their beers.

Bottle from flandersned-thanks, Steve! Ruddy brown. Nose is mostly oak, and red wine elements...line a cellar at a vineyard. Cherry, some dried dark fruit, fresh red grapes, leather, and lots of smooth oak. Nice stuff.

Bottle shared by Ryan. Pours a brownish red without much head. Light vinegar aroma with a slight dark fruity character. Very enjoyable.

12oz bottle to chalice. Light brown with a hint of red. Generous tan head that lasts and laces. Aroma of sweet malt. Maybe a hint of tartness. Taste follows. Some cherry. Mostly sweet and mildly tart on the finish. Thin with prickly carbonation.
