From a 22 oz bottle shared at the March 2014 DC RB gathering. Pours cloudy brown with a thin ecru head. Caramel nose. Flavors of cherry and caramel. Medium to thin bodied. Soft carbonation. Slight tart finish. bmerz (741) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - MAR 7, 2014
Bottle. Pours a reddish brown with almost no life at all. Aroma is very thin malty sweet with vague lactic sourness. Flavor is about the same but with a mild rancid butter and bitter finish. Feel is thin and a bit silty with very light carbonation. Shame. I was in the mood for an oud bruin. Reimer96 (1743) - Alberta, CANADA - FEB 17, 2014
Pours a clear reddish brown with a light tan head and average retention. Aroma of fruity esthers, caramel, plums, figs, prunes and spicy phenols. Taste is tannic, malty and fruity with some carmelization type characters, sweet dried fruits and some earthy characters. Overall its malty and fruity with a faint sourness...needs more sourness and is unbalanced by being too sweet. rubbishystuff (2538) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JAN 31, 2014
UPDATED: JUN 16, 2017 From Gene’s. I usually am a big fan of Oud Bruin. While not bad, if you are bad fan of the style you will be disappointed. It is almost a sour for extreme beginners. I don’t think all sours need to be super puckery but this was way too subtle. That being said it wasn’t bad a drink other than a little too sweet.

2013 bottle Pours amber with little head. Aroma is stale caramel malt. Flavor is cardboard, odd fruitiness, odd off flavor finish.

Beers like these are why I sometimes question staying part of the monthly beer club I am part of. No head to speak of and tasted more like a high ABV beer not a measly 6%. Not something I would ever buy.

Bottle: waste of money. More fool me. Sold as a Berliner Wiesse at Bevmo. What a joke. I should have ignored the fool.
Cloudy, copper brown and a crap head. Malty dried fruit aromas. Hardly sour. This is more of an Abbey Ale that’s a little light. Caramel aromas. Low hops. Off dry to slightly sweet, hardly sour to low sourness, and low to medium bitterness. Flabby and mid weight and short.
Just a shame. This is not a real sour beer. No funk or complexity. DONT BE FOOLED! nuplastikk (6289) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 18, 2014
750ml bottle. Orange-red body, not much head. Creamy malt body, not sour, but definitely has a tang to it. Kind of odd, medium bodied. Reminiscent of a Steam beer in ways, but has the delicate lactic tones. OK at best, not so impressive. CanIHave4Beers (4187) - Pouring Bus, Iowa, USA - DEC 26, 2013
Pours a hazy red with a loose head. fletchfighters (1531) - AUSTRALIA - DEC 25, 2013
The aroma is malty and has some light tart cherry.
The flavor is a touch boozy, sort of tannic, with some tart cherries, some oak, and a whole bunch of maltiness. Really odd.
This is one of those where it almost seems like they just had an infected batch of an Amber ale or whatever and tried to sell it as a sour beer... not a lot of style characteristics displayed on this one, weird, not all together terrible, but certainly not good or representative of the style at all.
750 ML bottle
Clear cherry brown color with a light tan head that falls slowly to a ringed collar. Good retention on the head.
Nose is roasted malts, dark cherry and some fruit flavored vinegar. Soft nose. Kind of a Double but kind of not.
Slightly sour with dark fruits and malt. Needs more complexity and more sour/ tartness. Slowly getting there though. High carbonation and light feel. Needs a lot of work to really be workable though
