(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

33 cl. bottle sampled @ 19de Nationale Bierhappening: clear dark brown ruby with a slightly off-white head only on the sides - smell is lovely wine vinegar, instead of the usual cherry notes of an Oud Bruin, picking up some lovely raspberry and raspberry vinegar here, interesting, light malt - light caramel sweetness, hint caramel, light wine vinegar, red fruits, that lovely raspberry, raspberry vinegar, light sour berries in the back, leather, nice acidity - lightly fizzy, bit light, might liked the experimental version a bit more but this one is more ’experimental’ interesting due to raspberry-ness for me, good stuff
