50cl bottle into tulip. Minneapolis. Bottle basically exploded with carbonation when I opened it. Beer everywhere. Whats left is murky brown in color. Original massive white head has died down to a thin coating. Aroma is sour, barrel notes, dark fruits, winey. Taste is tart, fruity under notes. Body is fairly light, very frothy. Medium length finish. Overall, the beer is pretty good, interesting even. I just did not care for the first impression.

UPDATED: MAY 16, 2015 bouteille de 50cl, un gushing vide 1/ 4 de la bouteille... Couleur brune trouble, légère mousse beige. Nez fruits rouges, aigre, un peu sucré, notes de bouchons de vin. Gout fruits rouges/cerises noires aigres avec notes boisée vieille, bon corps et bonne pétillance, fin très tannique, vineuse bourgogne, laissant une aigreur et une notes vieux fruits, forte et longue en bouche. Pas trop complexe mais bien intense, un regal!

Bottle poured its content upon opening probably because of high carbonation. It feels like a soft sour red worth a thin layer of a light stout. Aftertaste of champagne warmth.

Interesting sour that was aged in whiskey barrels that really cut down on the pucker and gave it more of a mellow non tart palate and mouthfeel.

Like their Aardmonnik, the Struise Brewers tackle the oud bruin style in their own creative way with this: partially brewed wuth rye and aged on burgundy and Wild Turkey barrels... It refers to the first World War, the beginning of which is commemorated this year. Pale beige, thinnish, unstable head, dark burgundy colour, hazy. Complex aroma of plums, figs, grapes, wood, yoghurt, sherry, chocolate with just a hint of bourbon. Complex taste profile, candied fruits, citrus touch, lactic acid, strongish carbo at first but calming down as you go further into the beer, smooth caramelly and nutty malt backbone, lightly toasted, long finish, woody with subtle yet noticeable bourbon (the burgundy is far less obvious), late and subtle leafy hop bitterness and some warming, sherry-like alcohol; in all, an interesting and complex brew once again, but I had expected a bit more body.

-Short review- very complex. Aroma of red berries, vanilla, caramel and oak. Slick palate. Aftertaste which develops from sour and funk, to sweet toffee and berries. Overall: nice! Very complex.
