Red- amber color; huge head. The aroma is vinous and quite sour. The taste is too simple, some (low) sweetness, very low sourness, no fruitness. Not the top.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Looks like an altbier, dark brown with a frothy light brown head. Aroma is sweet and sour, cider like. Quite a nice gently sour, fruity taste. Astringent. I like this.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Dark amber colored with a frothy long lasting light tan head. Dusty and sour woody aroma with cheesy tones. Mild flavor with some sourness. Malty, woody and grapefruity. Berry notes also. A classic example of a Flemish Sour Ale. Nice, but not very dangerous!

Slight chocolate nose with some vinegar. Dark clear brown and a low lathery head. Earthy tones in the body with a tinge of sour towards the end. Then turns to tobacco a little. Varied profile of interesting flavors that is blended really well.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Yellow-brown head, gone very fast; opaque dull red-brown beer. Superb nutty, lactic, woody and fruity nose, multitude of esters and acids and other superb organic compounds that build the greatness of Oud bruin. Flat beginning in the taste, then revived by lactic acid, the suspicion of acetic acid, woody impressions, and again hazelnut notes. A tad portwine or Madeira, but with a more sherry-like dryness. Medium bodied, very dry and dry-out effect, prickly, leaving one wondering where the first flat impression hailed from. "Bacchus" has always been one of my first favourites amongst Oud bruin. I cannot understand why it has become so hard to find, these days.

Chestnut color with a beige head. The taste is a sweet beginning with some sourness. Finish with a funny bitterness.
