2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
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 ainít for me.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 13/20
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 itís 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.

2.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 7/20
A 375ml wrapped bottle with a best before date of 25th November 2016 and poured into a Duvel tulip glass. It poured a clear dark brown colour with a less than one finger tanned head that dissipated quickly but leaves some nice stringy lacing. Aromas are mainly tart cherries with some grape, apple juice and vinegary elements. Taste is similar to the aromas with tart cherry sourness and grape bubblegum sweetness with hints of apple juice and brown sugar. Light bodied, with mid to high carbonation. Overall this was better than the Kriekenbier version that I tried before. However, unfortunately, according to the wrapping, it seems they add Stevia to the beer. I donít use sugar substitute sweeteners in anything ever, and I donít see why I need to start doing so in beers.
