3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
bottle @ Party Source / Bellevue KY --- Cloudy brown color, heavy beige head that slowly drops to a cover, a few lace dots. Aroma of sour grain and sour fruit. Taste is both tart and sour grain that adds a little berry and prune on the swallow, maintaining the sour through a full-bodied, lingering finish. An excellent example of an Oud Bruin.

Poured from a 750ml bottle. There is a big apricot character, dried apricot. The acidity is balanced against the maltiness. A very interesting interpretation of the style.

Bottle. Pours a deep rust-hued brown body with a small off-white head. Nose is raisins, mild balsamic, dark fruits and hints of wood, apple vinegar and rose water. Taste is sour lactic tones, leather, balsamic, raisins and hints of lemon juice, grains and apricot. Medium body and high, near-fizzy carbonation. Original and rather nice, though somehow not quite my cup of tea.

6/19/2015: Grand Dame Oud Bruin... Aroma has brown sugar, berry, red wine, hint of vinegar; red brown color; flavor is acidic and funky with undertones of red berries, currant, cocoa powder, cherry, oak, red wine vinegar, and caramelized malt; Medium bodu, very carbonated (too much); interesting, good, seems fairly typical of the style.
