3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle, 5.4%. Sour and sweet aroma, this is clearly an oud bruin. Sparkling, clear brown colour. Stable light brown head. The flavour is very acidic for the style, almost vinegary, which suits it very nicely. It has a little sweetness, but without cancelling out the acidity. I detect a slightly roasted flavour behind the acidity. This is what I feel an oud bruin should be.

Bottle. White lasting head. Clear dark red body Vinegar aroma. Rootbeer / goose berry fkavor. This is not my taste of a beer but as is it is so much different from what I have tasted so far I’ll give it a couple of extra points in my overall judgement. Not tad at all as we would say in my "home country".

Bottle@Bier Circus, Brussels. Nose, almost balsamic aroma, with some acidic cherryish type aromas, woody. The flavour come through in the flavour. The mouthfeel is very well balanced and seems to hit the exact spot between sweet and sour. Bloody, with some tomatos acidity. Balsamic. Very nice.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Clear, strongly carbonated copper. The head is beige, small, but lacing nitro-like, leaving traces for every sip to be remembered. Sweet and sour nose, fruity (grapes and cherries) and globally balanced. A pleasant balsamic aspect ensures high drinkability, paired with the quenching, really engaging carbonation that is quite active at first, but becomes foamier and givec the mouthfeel a creaminess that is most welcomed and makes you forget about the filtration. Taste remains fairly lasting and is pleasantly light, woody and gummy, leaving a slight sweet film that is balanced by the diplomatic tartness. Up to the brewery’s high standards, if not the most exciting oud bruin out there.
