Bottle 750ml. Pours brown with red reflects. Low beige head, some lacing. Aroma is of licorice (red), malt, sweetness, sour. Taste is of dark fruits, "cheese", yeast, acidity in the back on the tongue/palate. Overall: Good balance. Very good beer. A little short in the mid phase of taste. Drinkable.

UPDATED: FEB 24, 2014 Bottle (750 ml). Thanks to jp7161 for the 1st bottle / thanks to JM for sharing a bottle. Bright burgundy with a light ring of beige foam. Aroma of red fruits, interesting sourness, red wine, acetic presence (not too much), wood, spices and hints of caramel. Taste is moderately sweet and moderately sour with a lot of red fruits, medium acetic presence, red wine, wood, some spices, leathery brettanomyces and caramel. Medium body. Medium carbonation. Spicy/dry finish. A tad winey too. Balance isn’t bad despite the sourness. Very tasty. A really nice Flemish Red. I enjoyed it a lot!

Bottle. Pours a solid dark amber/red with no head. Aroma of vinegar, red fruits, some tartness. Flavour reflects this. Beautifully tart, balanced nicely. I finished it pretty damned quick! Nice.

JorisPPattyn (8386) - Ursel, BELGIUM - JUL 28, 2012
Small rim of yellow, small bubbles over fully opaque dark brown beer. Old wood, lactic acid, perfumey in the best possible way; vinous, red/blue berries. Sour, lactic acid, wood; dried red berries. Finish is just slightly more watery. Wild ferments. Tart - indeed! dry, dry, but not emtpy. Excellent Oud Bruin, in the best image from Belgium, totally convincing.

On draft at the Bruery. This is very dark for a Flemish red. The aroma exhibits exceptional balance, potency and complexity. There is a delicate fruity back drop with strong malt vinegar notes and solid oaky hints. In the flavor there is a juiciness to balance the assertive sour notes. This is a very bold take on the style while still retaining all the desired nuances. Excellent.
