3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
330ml bottle served in a Duvel’s tulip.
A: Pours a beautiful dark amber clear color forming a huge aired tan head. Low retention and some lacings formed end left in the glass
S: Smell is quite fruity and bit sour as a good Oud Bruin should be. Strong notes of dark fruits, mainly cherries and red grapes. Some wild yeasts can be felt too. A bit metallic in the end
T: Slightly sweet upfront. Strong notes of sweet malts and dark fruits. Again, strong notes of cherries, plums and red grapes. A bit sour. Some metallic notes. Toffee, caramel malts, crystal malts. In overall, a fruity but not extremely sweet beer
M: Medium body. Good carbonation. Light sour and fruity aftertaste
O: Good drinkability. An Oud Bruin "for the masses", but still a nice beer

3.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Dark ruby with a thick light tan head. Aroma of honey, apricot, and raisin. Malty, sweet and a bit tart. Taste is more berries than the nose lets on. Seems like it was aged in wine barrels. Medium bodied and watery.
