I do like the Rodenbach-like aroma, but it does have quite some acetoney wafts, and some balsamic vinegar. Taste very similar, nice roast, tasted of coconut in a few sips, super sharp, kinda aggressive.
750ml bottle shared by Phil, thanks! Dark brown beer with a reddish tinge, small beige head. Nose is tart, red berries, fruity, balsamic vinegar. Flavor is red berry tartness, currant skins, balsamic vinegar. Very tart and vinegary finish, wood. Dry and woody finish, dark malty notes. martjoobolut (5468) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - FEB 3, 2018

Ruby brown pour, larger than head, no lacing. Candied fruits, mild balsamic vinegar aroma, brown sugar, oak. Lighter roasted malts give way to plum, date, brown sugar, balsamic vinegar in the taste. Medium body, light lingering sourness on the palate. 2015 vintage. imperial_suchy (352) - Rybnik, POLAND - NOV 29, 2017
Piwo koloru ciemno-miedzianego, z nietrwałą pianką. W aromacie wiśnie kandyzowane, migdały, wanilia, dębina, czerwone owoce, lekka skóra i czerwone wino, jest też delikatna stajnia. W smaku przyjemnie kwaśnie, nagazowanie subtelnie szczypie w język. Pojawiają się nuty wiśniowe, winne, skórzane, stajenne, czerwonych owoców, waniliowe, drewniane, migdałowe. Dzieje się tu wiele, piwo bardzo złożone. Jestem nim zachwycony. Godne polecenia. rami_pl (4998) - Warszawa, POLAND - OCT 28, 2017

UPDATED: OCT 15, 2017 Purchased at La Bodega, Oud Bruin is a Barrel-Aged Sour Brown Ale from the Hors Serie crafted by Les Trois Mousquetaires.
The aroma of cherries and grapes are noted as you take a whiff. An air of Brettanomyces funkiness is felt upon the nose. An oak feel is sensed in the acidic finish due to the barrel aging. An alcohol content of 7% is noticeable with the sweetness we experience.
A fair carbonation brings out the acidic sour quality. Cherries add a tartness to go with the sour. White grapes add a wine-like character to the body and sweetens the take.
A rich malt character is present to go with the sharp tart and sour body. Munich malt provides another sweet element to the body. Pilsner malt is noticed with the cherry flavor. Quebec Malt is noticed in the slightly dry finish and picked out along with the funky yeast taste. Caramel seems to be used, but it is not; and the Cara 160 malt brings a caramel like feel to the drink.
Perle hops blend very well with the sour qualities of this beer. Mittelfruh hops encapsulates the combination of sour and tart flavors. Brettanomyces yeast is faint, but fully experienced in the finish.
Cheers. Prost. Drink for the love of beer.

A very ~rare~ combo, hits with the initial sourness (and we're talkin real sour, acidic even), and then you have this chocolate, creamy, hazelnut aftertaste totally more reminiscent of the brown ales. Bod is pretty light, carbo as well. Earthy aroma. Nice beaver brown coloration. It's cool but a bit too skewed on the sour, I'd prefer a more equitable balance between the sour and brown ale vectors.
