Unde (371) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUN 17, 2014
Reddish brown colour, delicate head which goes to the sides. Aroma has lots of berries and tannin, some oak or other woody notes too. Taste has red sour berries, with other sour elements and tannin. Some sweeter berries are there too. Medium body and medium carbonation. Well sometimes you just got to try the strange ones.

Moravius (528) - Berlin, GERMANY - JUN 12, 2014
Flasche (33 cl). - Tiefes Rotbraun mit Stich ins Violette. - Intensiv fruchtig-säuerliche Nase mit Süßkirschen, Aceto balsamico und einer etwas künstlich wirkenden muffigen Note. - Antrunk etwas künstlich süß, etwas herb-säuerlich, aber ohne intensive Fruchtaromen und ohne die charaktervolle Schärfe eines guten Oud Bruin. Statt dessen künstliche Aromen wie von Limonade und Süßstoff. Gut rezent, dünner Körper. Im Abgang unangenehm blechern und plastikartig. Von „Eichenfaß“ keine Spur. Der Nachtrunk erinnert an Aspirin. - Fiese Brühe, die mit einem richtigen Oud Bruin wahrscheinlich ebensoviel Ähnlichkeit hat wie Capri Sonne mit frisch gepreßtem Orangensaft. Und die Zutatenliste auf der Flasche - u.a. mit „Mais, Zucker, Aromen, E 300“ - verdirbt einem vollends den Appetit und bestätigt alle (eigentlich ungerechtfertigten) Vorurteile gegen belgisches Bier.

Salmoniform (825) - Sweet Home, Oregon, USA - JUN 9, 2014
Poured from bottle to glass. Amber brown hue with off white head. Aroma is lactic, roasted malt, caramel, sugar. Mouthfeel is nice with a medium body and brisk carbonation. Taste is sweet throughout with a nice tart Belgian estery following. Overall this is a really nice brew!

Fritz123 (1032) - Boca Raton, Florida, USA - JUN 7, 2014
Draft at the Yard House in Boca. Chalice. Pours a dark reddish brown mostly opaque. One finger lasting head and some sporadic lacing. The aroma was sweet dark cherries, biscuit, slight wild yeast, and wine barrel. The taste was quite a let down however. It was fairly sweet and not sour at all. The cherries were dominant but too sweet (almost like a Kasteel Rouge.) Biscuit and bread rounded out the sweetness some. Very low carbonation, kind of watery. The oak barrel did come through some. Not my favorite.

Icedwarf (347) - Etten-Leur, NETHERLANDS - JUN 7, 2014
Zwart bier met schuim. Smaak is zoet, drop, rook en caramel, echter ietwat waterig. Blijft redelijk lang hangen. Goed bier.

VDuquerroux (312) - Airvault, FRANCE - MAY 29, 2014
Bottle, 33cL. Home. A dark brown beer with mahogany hues through the light. Medium off-white beer poorly persistent. Fruity smoky aroma (blackberry, blackcurrant), caramel, acid note. Medium refreshing bitter, light sweet, light sour note. Medium body, medium silky texture, average carbonation, long bitter finish with a warming note. Overall, I *heart* this one ! Great aroma. Taste would be great if sourness was more intense (I agree with @fiulijn).

FROTHINGSLOSH (4971) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 8, 2014
UPDATED: MAY 14, 2014 Sampled on draft at Hou Thou this beer poured a black color with brown highlights and a medium sized creamy -foamy off white head that lingered and left great lacing. The aroma was tangy and a bit sour with notes of balsamic vinegar, soy sauce and dark fruits. The flavor was tart, chalky and sour with notes of soy sauce, balsamic vinegar.oregano and dark fruits. Long finish. Medium body. Solid.

Davhgbrew (943) - Seattle, Washington, USA - APR 28, 2014
Dark red, very creamy head. Mouthfeel is as off nitro. Thin watery body. Mostly sweet cherry and plum with some oak. No hop flavor or bitterness. Sweetness is just too pronounced and sourness is overmatched. One of the worst flanders red/browns I’ve had. Had off draft at yard house Seattle.
