Dark sour ale aged in oak barrels. A collaboration between The Bruery and Cigar City Brewing, this Imperial Oud Bruin is layered with aromas of cranberries, tropical fruits, leather, and aged balsamic, balanced by wood tannins and roasted malt.

Bottle during RBWG. Pours a cloudy copper with small beige head that diminishes to nothing. The aroma is vinegar, cherry skin, wood. Thin mouthfeel with nice tart cherry, balsamic vinegar, light tannins, really enjoyed this.

Poured from a 750 ml bottle. Aroma is very fruity with a lot of tart berries, cranberries, tart cherries, and cassis with some prune and plum notes. Light raisin with some light oak as well. Moderate acidity with a hint of acetic acid. Light toasted bread, caramel and toffee notes. Pours a slightly murky, burnt amber with a small, fairly thin, tan head that recedes quickly to the edges where it lingers for a bit. Light lacing and small legs. Flavor is moderately tart with a little less fruit than in the aroma. Medium light acetic character. Some berries and tart cherry with prune and plum, but also some raisin. More malt and oak than in the aroma with toasted bread and caramel. Medium light bitterness. Mouthfeel is medium bodied with medium carbonation. Low astringency and low alcohol warmth. Overall, a nice beer and better than Oude Tart. The fruit character is a bit different and better integrated with the malt and oak. The acidity is also not as bright and strong.

750ml bottle, big thanks to Mike B. for sharing at Jay A.’s party. Dark red, slightly brown color. Mostly hazy. Thin off-white slightly khaki head. Few dots of lace. Awesome big dark fruit, chewy, wood, and acidic. Great moderate to bigger sour taste, moderate sweet. Medium to bigger body. Smooth, lighter carbonation. Kind of slick texture. Fantastic, awesome woody mildly spicy flavor profile to this.

This is a pretty nice one. It pours a reddish-brown. It has a nice sour flavor. Fruity, tart, and woody. Overall, good stuff.

"and here i thought the night would go downhill after the awesomeness that was Friek. they nailed this one across the board. wonderful aroma of oak, funk, and some fruit that at first you think is cherry but has a more tropical smell and taste to it. in the flavor there’s oak, fruit, substantial funk (though not nearly as sour as Friek) and some leather, which i just loved. lasting impression. will seek out again."
