Intro: A 1 pint 9.4 fl. oz. bottle, with surprisingly no vintage year printed on the label. Poured into a Lost Abbey teku glass.
Appearance: A clear dark brown amber colour with about a half finger off white head that dissipated fairly quickly while leaving only sparse lacing.
Aroma: Vinous red wine, fruity cherry, mixed berries with a light touch of balsamic vinegar and maybe oak.
Taste: Sour, tart, cherry, mixed berries, sharp acidic citrus zest, vinegar, light oak, with vinous wine notes at the end.
Mouthfeel: Dry, acidic, medium bodied with moderate carbonation.
Overall: A solid and enjoyable Oud Bruin with good aroma and flavours.
