I like Apple Cider. This beer has cider like tendencies with a wonderful tart bite. Pours murky brown with light head. Scent is apples, earth, and vinegar. Big tart bite that fades into apple goodness. Medium mouthfeel. Bottle - Green’s Beverages - Atlanta, GA

Angenehm säuerlicher Antrunk, mild. Vollmundiger Mittelteil, spritzig, könnte aber komplexer sein. Angenehme Fruchtigkeit, gelungen. 8/11/9/9/10/9

Thanks to Hertie for sharing! Pours a hazy dark apple cider color with almost no head. The smell is wood, sour cherries, must. The taste is follows the nose with a nice dry and sour ending. Oily texture and medium body with very small amount of carbonation. A nice dry woody our bruin.

375mL capped bottle, 2013 Edition, poured into an Oerbier glass. Cap states best by (expires) 01/02/23, funny. Pop the cap and barely a hiss escapes. The beer pours almost flat, just some agitation bubbles. Color is like a dull ruby red marmalade, can’t see through it. Aroma is bretty cherry pit with some faint spoiled cherry. At first I sniffed something bland but once the lambic-like dry brettiness kicked in it made it complete. Pretty much a dead body, no carbonation. Flavor is again a dry brettiness some super unripe tart cherry. The flat body takes away from the beer a bit but its a real nice Flanders red. Light feel to the beer, tart, rather clean and brett centric with a cherry Flanders mix.

[10/4/13] Bottle sample at a tasting at chriso’s place. 2013 bottle. Hazy amber. Sourish aroma with oak, fruits and a hint of vinegar. Sour flavor, fruity, a bit lactic, with some funk and some oak. Medium-bodied. Really nice.

37.5cl bottle shared at DSG and jsquire tasting at Chris’. Pours brown/reddish, cloudy with a tanned head. Aroma is definitely sour, with hints anise, caramel and some spices. Flavor is definitely funky, horseblakety and sour, with vanilla and oak. Finish lasts and lasts, leaving a nice sout aftertaste. Dry finish. Medium body with good carbonation. Very tasty and miles better than some of the more pedestrian offerings from Verzet.

Pouring at NotF in Boston. Pours a clear ruby color with a thin beige to tan head. Big and sweet initially, then dries out into some tart acid. Bright and vibrant, lots of bright acid. Tart, tasty, and surprisingly nice.

I love oud bruin, so I was quite excited to try this. Very interesting, but lacked the body of some others in this style, and seemed a little under aged.
