3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
My Bottom Line:
Cherries and wild edges brand this authentic Oud Bruin, leading to sourness and dryness.
Further Personal Perceptions:
-A veil of foam skirts the dull amber haze.
-Fat bubbles and dryness work well together.
-Though this may not be distinctive, it is a simple and very effective example.
-I wouldn’t mind using this to show someone what the style is.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Pours red brown with a high cream/beige head. Nose is acetic with undertones of fruit and savory. Extremely sour on the front of the tongue, with a smoky bitterness following. Finish is dry and tight -- no sweetness at all. Good example of the style.

Bottle. Hazy brown pour, thin white head. Aroma of balsamic vinegar, oak, varnish, blackcurrant and raspberry. Flavor is very sour, bready and fruity. Heavy on the stomach, but interesting.

Robe pelures d’oignons, très trouble, mousse evanescente. Joli nez aux notes "boisées". Bouche très acétique à l’attaque, quasi aucune effervescence. Texture légère, longueur moyenne, assez monocorde mais bien typée.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
(bottle, 37.5cl, vintage 2012) Hazy, ruby amber golden colour with an unstable tanned foamy head. Yeasty spicy and dusty dark malty aroma with caramel, delicately woody and shy fruity notes. Mildly acidic and delicately sweet flavour, light to medium bodied with a lively carbonation. Dark malty, slightly toasty base with present notes of caramel, spices and a touch of cellar; the fruit-character (cherries, citrus, raspberries) is initially rather restrained but gets stronger towards the moderately vinegary, woody and tart finish. 11.I.13
