Liefmans Oud Bruin
A cloudy medium-brown, this low-headed beer has a great aroma - reminding me of some other great sours, it has a smell a bit like a white wine melded with some dark fruits. Its flavour doesn't knock my socks off, but it is quite refreshing - like a ratcheted-down lambic with a bit more sweetness. The body is surprisingly light, given its colour, and it has low carbonation. It would be a great beer to start introducing someone new to sours with, or to get a wine-loving friend to open up to some different notions on beer.
