Bottle from Vinmonopolet.
Cola colr. Bittersweet beer, a lovely sour edge creeps in, but overall there is too much sugar in this.

What more do you want in an affordable Flemish brown? Classic sweet balsamic aromas and flavors.. Balanced carbonation, tartness and clean, mouthwatering finish. Not ground breaking, though a classic example. Great for those new to the style. Very friendly. Recommended.

Pretty decent sour. Taste is fruity, sour, vine, dry finish. Nice surprise though.

Deep smell of stables, raisins and esters. Good carbonation. Taste is sweet and a bit bitter, but not so acidic in the aftertaste as i would like.

Pours dark amber with an off-white head. Some nose of esters and mild fruityness. Mild aroma of fruity esters and mild sour. Not bad, but lacking compared ti other wild ale, but considered it’s blended, fairly good.

Bottle from Vinmonopolet Manglerud enjoyed at home as Vanderghinste Oud Bruin
Pours dark brown with a big tanned head. Smells of caramel, malts, some hops and yeast esters. Taste is moderate sweet, some light to moderate acids, some fruityness and caramel. Moderate bitter finish. A very nice beer. Opposite to most beers this one mostly is a flavorish beer, not that aroma intense. Really good flavors though, very harmonic

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from Vinmonopolet, under its alias Vanderghinste Oud Bruin. Clear red-brown-purple color. Small head which hangs around on the edges of my glass. Both aroma and flavor is dominated by wood and dark cherries. Some red wine-ish notes. Some vague spicy notes too. Nice low amount of sourness - I’m tempted to call it subtle. A small amount of sweetness in the aftertaste, along with some artificial bubblegum flavors. Very easy to drink. Reminds me a little bit of the concentrated "juice" my grandmother used to make from red and black currants (wikipedia says that’s called a "squash"). Rather light body, refreshing carbonation. Good stuff!

Flaske fra polet: en uventet smaksopplevelse, men for en som ikke er begeistret for lambic var dette faktisk godt! Skummet forsvant fort, lignet ikke mye på illustrasjonen. en surhet som balansert mot sødmen var deilig. Kanskkje det er håp for meg, Asle Bjørn?
