330ml bottle from St. Veronus. Deep red/black bodybwith huge tan head with great lacing. Very minimal sourness with an amazing light/medium body. Some funk on the nose with wood, cherry, raisin and fig. The most sessionable Flemish sour I’ve ever had.

eduardovl (864) - SWITZERLAND - OCT 14, 2014
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 [ BA Review @ 8/17/2013 ]

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.
