At Bad Apple. OK, this isn’t very complex and is a bit sweet and the sourness is pretty subdued. But for some reason I really liked it. Almost like a sweet and sour beer cola in flavor(in a good way) with a bit of cherry. Serving: Bottle

Douberd (2284) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - SEP 12, 2014
(Bourgogne des Flandres Biere Brune) Bottle 330 ml at home, poured into a tulip glass. ABV 5% Dark brown colour on the body, quite clear, with a good sized beige head on top, with average retention, leaving light lacing on the glass. Aroma of prunes, sugar, light caramel, raisins. Nice sour taste, not very extreme and also cut down a bit with sugar, some wine notes, dark fruits. Medium thin body, good carbonation with a little bite. Very good, especially since I thought it would be a dubbel because of the "bruin" on the bottle.

Bottle. Clear deep red-brown, creamy tan head. Aroma is of cherry and oak, some bready notes also. Flavour is sweet caramel, oak, tart fruits--cherries. Not complex but actually very tasty, I like it.

Dark, brown, almost no carbonization. The aroma is really fruity, could be a wine. The taste is very sweet too, kind of mix of cherries and grapes. The palate is quite ticklish. Sticky and waterish at the same time.

Sissio (601) - Orsenigo, ITALY - JUL 13, 2014
Clear brown, minimal cappuccino head. Hay, cereals and light malts, yeast. Yeasty simple malts with syrup-like sweetness and weird bittersweet ending.

mkel07 (3381) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - JUL 6, 2014
330ml bottle from Archive Beer Boutique 120813. Quite a good beer with swirling layers of skinny tan foam. There is some tartness there but not enough to make you screw your face up. Well balanced.
