UPDATED: SEP 13, 2015 From WLVL. A more dry and less sweet Oud Bruin. Better with food than stand alone. Not too puckery, winey mouth feel. Serving: Bottle

Green glass, Editie 2013, EXP: 26/10/23. Tough crown to open. Nose a little high on the balsamic, very nice strong wood, cherry, tart. Seems tawny at first pour but under the light much more blood red, with a short-lived and fizzy tan head. Taste bone dry and strongly sour, shade south of puckering, strong wood and faint cork with cherry and a nice lactic-acetic balance; neither acid type is extreme [really dialed-in, perfect for this kind of beer] and it’s hard to tell which comes out on top (I am one who prefers a little more acetic in his reds and much more lactic in his browns, but the balance works here). Touch earthy-musty but overall still pretty bright; milky lactic slime in the deep finish but that’s ameliorated by that beautiful dry, tannic wood character. Very strong, scratchy wood, light sweetness noted only in the sharp finish/throat and teeth, fruit is intense sour cherry and jammy. Fullish body but not heavy. Doesn’t have that extra layer of complexity but nice and punchy, somewhat moreish staying much closer to maltiness than vinegar without forgetting the latter, very pleasant!

Theydon_Bois (13535) - Tourist Town (West), Berkshire, ENGLAND - SEP 29, 2015
Keg at Moeder Lambic Fontainas, 24/09/15. Lightly hazed reddish amber with a decent beige covering. Nose is musty oak, tarte red berry, light spice, nutty, funky waft, earthy. Taste comprises wood must, cherry stones, earthy, tarte dark fruit mash, damp hay. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, semi drying close with a light acidic throat scrape. Decent Flanders red.

ebone1988 (530) - Taylor, Michigan, USA - OCT 3, 2015
Aroma is sour, dank, vinegar, fragrant. Appearance is red, light tan head. Taste is sour, dissolving into a vinegar, quite dank, and saltines. Mouthfeel is strange, strong’s carbonation yet light. Overall, Yowza, not good.

Saeglopur (1180) - Vienna Woods, AUSTRIA - OCT 6, 2015
375 ml bottle from my EU Local Swap 3/2015 sender Anatole, thanks!
Brownish-copper, hazy body, with a tiny, immediately dissipating head.
Aroma of overripe fruits, leather, oak, funk, sweet and sour berries, apples, pears, some vinegar.
Tastes of oak, funk, sour apples, pears, vinegar, overripe fruits, slight leather, subtle sweetness.
Light mouthfeel, with an average carbonation.
Finishes sour, dry, wooden, with pears, green apples, some vinegar, subtle overripe fruits

Nice one. Pretty straight, fresh and sour. I like the nose better, taste feels a bit simple, while still nicely balanced. Overall not among my favourite style examples, but enjoyable nonetheless.

ElManana (1235) - Scheldewindeke, BELGIUM - AUG 15, 2015
Draft at Zwevegems Bierfestival. Sour, dark fruits, acid, too much vinegar-like.

AWISLguy (1890) - Wisconsin, USA - AUG 25, 2015
Sampler on tap at Happy Gnome. Brownish red pour with a bit of a head. It had some cherry but also tart cranberry and some vinegar. It was nice in a sour way, hanging out with sour Eric. 14.2

ChtiBreizh (258) - Rennes, FRANCE - AUG 30, 2015
Reddish with thin frothy head. Typical aromas of prunes, cherries, wood. Sour, dry, low sweetness. Sharp and very refreshing.

Ambro206 (278) - ITALY - SEP 12, 2015
UNa perfetta Oud Bruin, secondo i canoni della tradizione. Parte acida aggressiva ma poi si apre in un bouqet fantastico di frutti rossi, legno mantenendo quella lieve sensazione acetica che accompagna ma non interferisce con la bevuta. Bilanciata e piacevole fino in fondo.
