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.

Notes from my backlog: Pours a hazy amber with a tan ring of head. Vague papery aroma with some faded raspberry. Slick light body. Papery flavor, bland with a faded/muted cranberry note. Lacking, restrained and papery. Eh.

Beim Bierzwerg geholt und mit McTapps geteilt. Wenn man diese mit den bisherigen Alten Braunen vergleicht, dann sind das Lichtjahre. Stark in Richtung Lambic mit einer wunderbar ausbalancierten Säure, etwas Getreide und einem Schuss Schoko nebst Beeren. Jawohl. DAS ist ein trinkbares Piwo.

McTapps (4142) - Ruhrcity, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - SEP 26, 2014
Bottle from Bierzwerg. The beer pours out in a deep brown colour with low head and medium body. Aroma of acid, nuts and barley. Taste of acid, mild vinegar, woods, oak, green unripe berries and light wine. Hints of barley and bread. Very easy drinkable beer, wonderful. Enjoyed it.

"Fruity, sweet and sour acidic aroma. Bubbly feel, light-medium bodied. Flavorful, hinting at tart apple and cherry. Acidic and malty without being overly aggressive in the sour department. Good session able sour and/or food beer. Glad I got 2."

brown reddish color with a beige disappearing head. fruity nose, cherries, wood. taste is cherry, bit wood. lacks some punch, sweet finish, candy. Feels more like a sweet kriek, than an oud bruin. Still, decent. ok

Bottle from Bruges. Pours chestnut with a fading cream head. The taste is sour with vinegar and fruit notes. Light and refreshing with a good tart finish. Not as complex as other beers of the style, but decent.
