This is the first release out of the brewery's new Wild Fruit Cave, and it shows great promise for the lineup. The muddled reddish-brown brew offers loads of funky barnyard and balsamic vinegar on the nose and mouth. The green apple and sour cherry notes are supported by a malty core of dry, toasted grain and light toffee. It's fruity and earthy, with a light, tart body and a dry, mouthwatering finish. Like traditional Belgian oud bruins, lay this one down for a year to five, tasting the evolution annually.
