COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Dark ruby red – red as wine. The style is also called the Burgundy of Flanders, and is a very typical and common beer in West Flanders
Created by a secret blend of the aged and sour ‘mother beer’ with fresh brewed sweeter beer, this beer produces a sour-sweet balance, set off by the underlying bitterness of the hops. A discovery! The best in its style! Light in alcohol, exciting complex flavors and tastes come to the forefront.
Although serving cold is recommended, taking time to drink it will release more aromas towards the end of your glass.

Boutip (5065) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 26, 2004
Poured a dark red brew with a nice head. Aroma of cherry (probably from coming from the oak) with acidic taste. Body is a bit light and no complexity. I would have appreciated a bit more spice or aftertaste. Overall, this is a very average oud brun and I won't be seeking this one anytime soon.

Cloudy mahogany color with a quick lasting head. Wierd aroma. Cherries and other fruit. Light sour flavor. Fruit and light hops. First of the style and very interesting!!

mds (2250) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 8, 2004
very dark mahogany, quick fizzy head. Complex aroma, sour cherries. Flavour is incredible! Evident fruit, hoppy, lingering sourness. My first of the style and I'm quite impressed. I'll have to hunt down some others.

Probiere (992) - Iowa, USA - JAN 1, 2004
UPDATED: JAN 3, 2004 Smells acidic, tastes of strawberries, wildberries, tart, mind you, no sugar added. Burnt oaky aftertaste that nicely complements the fruit. Pretty good.

SG (465) - Valley Center, California, USA - DEC 31, 2003
Very subtle spice and fruit flavors overshadowed by a sour, tart flavor. Not an especially strong flavor. It has almost no head and pretty nice lacing. Also slightly acidic with a carbonated moutfeel. The nose is not very big. Not bad.

dhurtubise (568) - Hamilton, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 25, 2003
This year's vintage is especially oud bruin-like. It has an excellent acitity combined with a rich malt backbone and is rather clean for an oud bruin.

wnp22 (685) - Toronto (Roncesvalles Village), Ontario, CANADA - DEC 7, 2003
Tasted in Toronto from LCBO. Tasted in Raftman tulip glass. Dark reddish brown colour, very small light white head. Very sour aroma, hints of sour berries. Taste is fairly muted and subtle. Slight sour taste with a dry finish. Feeling of strong carbonation.

fiulijn (16186) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 1, 2003
Dark amber color. Strong aroma; cherries and vinegar. Quite dry, not too much sour, but with a background bitter note out of place. Average Oud Bruin.

RichardGretton (4388) - Leicestershire, ENGLAND - NOV 30, 2003
Plain dark Belgian beer with a fruity and herbal flavour and aroma. Bitter on the palate, and overall OK.

hotstuff (4393) - Indiana, USA - NOV 21, 2003
This beer had a small sized ivory head that was both creamy and smooth and contained fine-small sized bubbles that was mostly lasting. The nose was sour, fruity and citrusy. The flavor was sour and fruity with a smooth and thin textured palate. This was a light bodied beer with fair lacing.
