Nicely acidic, cherry-like, the appearance coke-like. Strange, but nice experience.

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.
