Bottle. Pours a dark ruby red with a decent, beige head. Aroma is fairly sour, light caramel, red berries, some vinegar. Taste is fairly sour with red berries, vinegar, some balsamic vinegar, some oak, light caramel. Enjoyable. Quite a bit of carbonation, rather light. Enjoyable, but nothing that striking for a sour. Gets better as it gets warmer and the carbonation settles a bit.

KajII (770) - Macon, North Carolina, USA - OCT 9, 2013
750ml Bottle. The pour was a murky medium dark brown with an average (1-2 finger) creamy light brown head that diminished at a nice slow pace, down to a thick puddled film with a large collar thus producing excellent thick sheeting of lacing.

The aroma was of a dark sweet malt and an funky earthy Belgian yeast with notes of brown sugar, dark fruit (cherries, plums and grapes), a mild vinous scent, a touch of oak cask and a definite tartness.

The taste was lightly sweet and acidic with a bit of brown sugar in the beginning, but quickly became somewhat sour and acetic with a very strong fruity vinous presence and a bold woody flavor towards the finish. The flavor hung around for an average time following the swallow, with the tart woody winey taste fading slowly from the taste buds.

Mouthfeel was a few strokes below medium in body and quite dry in texture with a lightly ticklish carbonation.

Overall this was a tasty and refreshing Oud Bruin, although I fell that a bit more sourness would have improved the flavor just a bit. But that’s just my opinion... www.facebook.com/KAJIIsBeerReviews

Disappointed with this oud bruin. Rather watery and over carbonated. Also not as sour as expected.

Brune légèrement rougeâtre, bonne effervescence, col fin. Les malts caramels sont bien là mais l’acidité se fait à peine sentir, tout comme les fruits noirs si ce ne sont quelques cerises qui semblent s’être perdues en chemin vers d’autres bières ;-) J’ai connu meilleures vieilles brunes...

vipinvelp (1887) - Velp, NETHERLANDS - SEP 15, 2013
Dark brown with light brown foam head, lacing and lasting. Aroma is sour sweet, some wood notes. Taste is nice sweet OUD BRUIN as my mother always preferred. Nice aftertaste. (Rotterdam 201309)

One2remeber (137) - Jacksonville, Florida, USA - SEP 7, 2013
Bottle. Thick, micro bubbles, tan head. Deep black, amber hue in light. Same as Aged Pale Ale. Bit more malty, caramel, chocolate is faint. Metallic and vinegar near back end. Bit confusing with the sour and brown malt flavors. Not for me. Pale Ale was delicious though.

BazookaJoe (216) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - SEP 6, 2013
Pours dark red with a nice sour/tart aroma. Body is not as flavorful with no tartness and just a little but of caramel malt finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

StoutHead (483) - DENMARK - SEP 6, 2013
Bottle. Pours dark reddish with a light brown head. Taste is of malt, hops, fruity notes and sugar. Medium to full body. Sweet but with a tarty aftertaste. Not as good as the normal Double. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
