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.

On tap at Three Floyds, served in a tulip. Dark brown pour with some reddish hues and a thin head of tan foam. Not really any lacing. The aroma had sour cherries, candy apple, and some light wood and vinegar. The flavor was also woody and had a prominent note of sour cherries. Lightly sour, but plenty sweet as well. The mouthfeel was light-bodied and had light carbonation. Slightly aggressive on the tongue. Pretty mild, but not bad.

Bottle, bought @ Willems, Grobbendonk.
[thanks to Skou for bringing this home]
Pours a great, chestnut red-brown with a fine, off-white, creamy head. Sweet caramel aroma, light funk, some raspberries, barnyard and cherries. Medium carbonation, a tad watery. Flavour is limited, some caramel sweetness (especially in the start and the aftertaste). In between, there are light tart notes of raisins and cherries. A good-looking, Goudenband light.

From Delirium in Brussels, forgot to note if it was draft or bottle - Pours dark amber with a thin off-white head. The aroma is of cherries and wild yeast funk. It has a sweet taste with plenty of cherries and some funky flavors in the background. Itís medium bodied and has no apparent bitterness even in the finish, but avoids being cloying as some sourness kicks in at the right time.

Ober (2813) - Bommelerwaard, NETHERLANDS - MAY 26, 2009
A clear copper brown colored beer, with a thick beige head. The aroma is fruity with some nuts with wood. Some notes of chocolate. The taste is fruity like cherry. Flavors of sherry and port. Notes of wood and a little sour. Not much sour for a íOud Bruin". The aftertaste is a little sour with some sweets.

GT (9933) - Oceanside, California, USA - MAY 18, 2009
UPDATED: MAY 19, 2009 On tap at Brasserie Beck in Washington. Pours a clear, brownish red with a decent tan head that leaves good lacing. Aroma is wild: overripe cherries, bananas, and raspberries with honey and a big kick of balsamic vinegar. Taste is sour, vinegary, ripe berries, mustiness. The sourness becomes more vinegary and then just sweet over time. Very easy to enjoy and very different. Similar to Duchesse De Bourgogne albeit with less acidic tartness. The balsamic taste takes a bit getting used to but maybe Iím just not yet indoctrinated into the world of sours.

Red/brown colored. Light brown small head that dies quickly. Is sweet and fruity in the aroma. The flavor is fruity (cherries) and has a somewhat flat sourness. Has a sweet, short and quick finish.

On tap at La Trappe Cafe S.F. This brown ale poured with creamy tan head and a sour fruit aroma. Itís not a bit sour, in fact itís kind of sweet. The oak taste is easily discernible over the thin brown flavor.
