On draught at Edmunds Oast in Charleston, SC. Arrived to the table a deep reddish brown with a moderate tan head that lasted through the first quarter of the glass and laced the glass well. Very pleasant aroma of red wine vinegar, cherries, and plums. The flavor is red wine vinegar, cherries, plums and apricots with a lovely vinous character. Bright on the palate. The sourness is definitely present but not overreaching. Excellent. BillWyce (1104) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 2, 2015

On tap at Engine House No 9, pours a deep dark brown with a large beige head. Aroma brings out dark tart cherries, some balsamic vinegar, and leather. Flavour is along the same lines, with notes of leather, tart dark fruits, some acetic / vinegary notes, and a little tart cherry. Cohesive, complex and well-refined. Excellent.

bottle @ Party Source / Bellevue KY --- Cloudy brown color, heavy beige head that slowly drops to a cover, a few lace dots. Aroma of sour grain and sour fruit. Taste is both tart and sour grain that adds a little berry and prune on the swallow, maintaining the sour through a full-bodied, lingering finish. An excellent example of an Oud Bruin.

Poured from a 750ml bottle. There is a big apricot character, dried apricot. The acidity is balanced against the maltiness. A very interesting interpretation of the style. edgallow (4478) - nashville, Tennessee, USA - JUL 18, 2015
11.2 oz bottle pours hazy brown with a thin tan head. Aroma of raisins, brown sugar, vinegar and malts. Taste is dried fruit, tart and sweet. ClubGonzo (5685) - Bergen, NORWAY - JUL 15, 2015
Bottle. Pours a deep rust-hued brown body with a small off-white head. Nose is raisins, mild balsamic, dark fruits and hints of wood, apple vinegar and rose water. Taste is sour lactic tones, leather, balsamic, raisins and hints of lemon juice, grains and apricot. Medium body and high, near-fizzy carbonation. Original and rather nice, though somehow not quite my cup of tea.
