Fiery ruby-amber color, nice fluffy beige head. Nose of cranberry, grape juice, minor vinegar, a little stable. Flavor is more complex and quite diverse, but not very coherent: fruit juice, vinegar, alcohol, and wood lead the way. Very smooth, fruity body, again like you are drinking juice. Overall pretty interesting stuff. I like the cranberry notes, reminds me of New Glarus’ Raspberry Tart and Ommegang Rouge, but this not very sour nor is it very cohesive. The varied flavor is in fact a little conflicted and slightly off-putting.
Bomber poured a clear reddish amber with a small lingering amber head. Aromas of sour cherry, vinegar, oak, earthiness and light carmel. Palate was light bodied and crisp with a dry tart finish. Flavors of sour cherry, light carmel, vinegar, light earthiness and a hint of oak with a crisp dry lingering tart finish. Beats Duchess any day! Marsiblursi (3083) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - APR 15, 2009

Bottle via a trade with mashmaster. Pours with a small, off-white head over a hazed brown body. Aroma of plums, chocolate and alcohol. Taste is slightly metallic, with sweetness, dark fruits, and sourness. Light carbonation. True to the oud-bruin style’s meatiness. savnac (2656) - Anchorage, Alaska, USA - APR 9, 2009
22oz’er. Aroma of cherries, merlot, raisins with a slight earthiness. Clear reddish brown with a quick dissipating bubbly head. The sourness hits the back of your mouth first, there is a layer of sweetness that comes on but is taken away by a sour finish. Medium body with a somewhat thin mouth feel, lively carbonated and a long sour finish. This is my first sour ale so I’m not sure what to compare it to, but this is a superb ale. The sourness grows on you and the sweetness starts to come out as you drink it. There are lots of different flavors and sensations going on with this beer, almost a carnival for your mouth.
