COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A typical Flemish beer with a pleasant wine-like taste and a rich past. This dark brown beer, which is matured in oak casks, has a slightly acid aftertaste.

Scrumpy369 (442) - Budapest, HUNGARY - FEB 25, 2016
UPDATED: FEB 26, 2016 Bottle at home. Brown colour with a small white head. Nose is wet hay smoe wet cork. Taste is medium sourness. Balsamic acid, some wood, and hints of caramel in the aftertaste. Strange at first but decent as it gets slightly warmer.

Maakun (3626) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - FEB 24, 2016
Bottle shared thanks to sjogro. Deep mahogany with beige head. Stale red wine, sherry, a bit mineral, cardboard, overripe red fruits, some chalk, old rotten wood. Light sweet and sour, dry light bitter finish. Medium bodied with low but fizzy carbonation and dry feel. Disappointing.

artemb (630) - Chisinau, MOLDOVA - FEB 19, 2016
Look: clear, dark red, almost opaque. Aroma: dried sour cherry, some yeasty notes. Taste: moderate fruity sourness balanced with malty sweetness. Flavour: homemade wine, dried cherries, dark malts, light wild notes. Pleasant and not too complex.

RhetoricalAns (837) - Red Deer, Alberta, CANADA - FEB 7, 2016
Murky brown pour, small tan head. Mild aroma, earthy, a little acidic. Taste is similarly subdued sour ale, berries / fruit.

vipinvelp (3754) - Velp, NETHERLANDS - FEB 3, 2016
The style my mother aways drank. Clear ruby, tanned lacing foam head. Nice sour aroma and light sour taste. Real drink kick on first sip. Nice. (Velp 201602)

Cristobal37 (764) - Budapest, HUNGARY - JAN 31, 2016
Ruby red brown with minimal head. Strong cellar and vinegar yeasty aroma. Taste is quite mild but similar to aroma. Tongue tickling acidity with a sweetness of burnt sugar somewhere under the sourness. A bit watery at the end. Not bad, but I think this Flemish brown style ain’t for me.

jjsint (2261) - Cambridge, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - JAN 29, 2016
Bottle from Cambridge Blue. Mid brown with little carbonation and a small off-white head. Light smell of vinegar, cherry and cola nut. Slight sour taste. Not much personality or flavour but it’s pleasant. The well-carbonated palate is truly lively, as is the gently fruity soy aftertaste. Not the best Oud Bruin but it grows on me.

Hopverdju (609) - BELGIUM - JAN 9, 2016
Donkerbruin bier met fijn schuim die vlug verdwijnt. Geur: zurig, fruitig. Smaak: dorstlessend Zuur – zoetig. Sprankelende koolzuurprikkel. Afdronk: Zurig, uitvloeiend met iets licht zoetig. 1 van de betere Vlaams oud bruine die men enkel zo vers mogelijk zou mogen drinken!

thomat (3304) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - DEC 28, 2015
Dark reddish brown with a small off white head. Fruity and oak tones. Fruit, oak, malt and acidity. Medium body with a nice fruity / sour finish.
