UPDATED: JAN 17, 2018 Bottle. Pours a clear and bright (on first pour) ruby body with a short lived fizzy white head. The nose is quite acetic and sharp with a balsamic vinegar note and a lot of wood. Some sour cherry and a little Cheerios like cereal grain. The flavor is pretty acidic, I can feel the burn a bit as it goes down down my esophagus. For the age that this has on it, it’s actually in rather decent shape. Maybe a little thinned out and slightly more acidic, but there’s still some interesting things going on in here. Nice sour cherry and oakiness with a lingering finish. I could go for a bit more fullness in the mouthfeel, but there’s still plenty of carbonation. Not sure I’ll make it thru a full 750 by myself, but I’ll give it a go. This does sorta remind me of Rodenbach in some ways. Probably should have drank this long ago, but better late than never.

Bottle from sledutah shared at muckfest. Thanks! The beer is a clear copper color with a beige head of foam. The aroma has toffee and cherry pie filling sourness. Strong tartness in the taste. Medium body and moderate carbonation. BlackHaddock (8073) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - JUN 8, 2017
Another beer I tried at the 3rd Cotteridge Tasting on 20th May 2017. Somehow got here from ’Sledutah’, cheers mate. Beige head on a murky brown bodied pour.
Bit of a sour Puss of a beer, tart and sharp red berries in both the nose and taste. Didn’t read the label, so wasn’t expecting a Belgian style Oud Bruin. Not a big fan of the style, but this was fine once I realised what I had in front of me. SarkyNorthener (5072) - West Bromwich (Yorkshire Expat), West Midlands, ENGLAND - MAY 27, 2017

Bottle at Cotteridge Convention III. Hazy brown amber colour lasting beige head. some sour on aroma. Quite sour. But some decent funk and some lemon juice. Damson . Bulk_Carrier (6064) - Vermont, USA - NOV 16, 2016
Thanks Craig aka Sledeutah.
This was poured into a tulip.
The appearance was a dark red/brown color with no head nor lacing.
The aroma starts with strong apple cider vinegar bleeding into dry oaky foeders. Smooth acidity. Light "soured" caramel malt.
The flavor leads with the Apple cider vinegar, sour, and full fledged, instilling no disturbance on my tastebuds of sticky sourness. Nice transition from sour apple aftertaste to quick dry oaky finish.
On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a decent beat down from the sour hitting my palate appropriately. Super low carbonation. Smooth malts, totally oblivious to the carbonation. Semi-stickiness but acceptable.
Overall, damn fine Flanders Oud Bruin by Squatters, I would definitely love to have again.
