4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
0.25 bottle at some beer place in Bruges, Belgium. Nice brown colour, nice label for a classic beer. Taste is a bit difficult to describe, except it does not taste similar to most beers. Basically this is a sour beer combined with some sweetness as in lambic based beers but this is based on brown beer. Despite the dark colour I could drink this during a hot summer day.

Pours a ruby red with a sour malt aroma. Taste is similar, with a sour apple and grape flavor. A very dry beer, that had no distinct aftertaste.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
25cl bottle, and had it as ’VanderGhinste Oud Bruin’. The lovely dark red, even brownish body is accompanied by a light red gloom. The very vivid and sparkling liquid - due to the lively carbonation - adds to the aroma of the old brown. It has notes of cherry and even caramel. It’s a perfect "foeder", which can be preserved long after its bottle date. The medium body, the very long ending, the sweet sour notes combined with the bitter mouth: A great drink and the best thirst quencher. Good to know that there is still a batch of fifty bottles in my beer cellar.
