Bourgogne Des Flandres Brune / Bruin

The is is definitely better categorized as an Oud Bruin (rather than the current Belgian Dark – change requested as of 10/15/10) and I have reviewed it with that in mind.
Pours as one would expect for a Bruin into the the Val-Dieu chalice. Minimal head that is provoked only by an aggressive pour and a brownish red body with quite a high carbonation.
All of the attributes for an Oud Bruin are there; sweet & sour notes with the emphasis on sweet, a light mouthfeel and gentle carbonation a few yeasty notes and a simple, clean aftertaste and finish to the beer.
It’s a little light in the mouth and although this definitely reminds me of a Goudenband it really is a poor man’s version. Having said that, it’s all too infrequently that I drink this type of beer so I am happy to “slum it” for now.
Tasty if somewhat poor in comparison to classier versions, but nevertheless I’m happy to have it – Atlanta ain’t Belgium!
