chriso (7475) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 5, 2004
Very fruity and malty. Sweet too. Also woody. Although this looks like a Flemish red, it is not really sour, but pleasant enough. A bit soft and short of grip for me. Imaige du Notre Dame (a great bar, even if the beer range isn't that extensive), Brssels, September 2003

Aldrighetti (163) - Coltura, ITALY - JAN 31, 2004
Bottled. Clear dark reddish brown, light brownish head, glass sticking. Sweet nose of cola(?), brown malt (walnut), fruity. Very sweet taste, honeyed taste, fruity, less sourness than a Coca cola but sweet alike. Medium body.

maupie (927) - Roosendaal, NETHERLANDS - JAN 16, 2004
This beer has a red brown body - hue apperance and a fine light brown scum collar. I have drunk the beer from the bottle and it had no carbonic acid, but you didn't feel it. The initial flavor taste is sweet.

Hansen (7081) - Assentoft, DENMARK - JAN 2, 2004
Has something to start with like a normal beer, but the ageing in oak barrels gives this beer something special, like the strong acid.

Eyedrinkale (3213) - Astoria, New York, USA - NOV 30, 2003
Poured dark red, as it is aged in old sherry barrels. Sweet in taste with flavors of berries and malt. Nothing too special here.

JorisPPattyn (8124) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - OCT 18, 2003
Huge brown creamy head, collapsing to beautiful (Flemish) lace; dark red-chestnut beer, clear. Nose with wood, some sweet malts, molasses, vinous. Sweet taste, fruity, sweet preserved cherries or plums; woody, oak, ironoxide - even some blood-like flavour. Sweetness tastes artificial somehow. Medium bodied. Tannines, but restrained, not leading to any tartness. Not very convincing Oud Bruin. Lambic-based beer should yield some interesting features, but artifical tasting sweetness seems to be the only one. May the Van Outryve's turn in their graves!

ante (3374) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - SEP 19, 2003
Dark rubtbrown with a small brown head. Sweet aroma of raisin, toffee ans smooth malt. A bit too sweet (not much acidity). Raisins, oranges and dark berries. Ok.

imdownthepub (10874) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - SEP 2, 2003
Bottled, Pasteurised. Ruby red colour, malty head. Sweet malty almost sugary, then a sour yeasty bitter flavour gives a deal of interest. Nicely juicy on the pallatte.

diabel (1614) - Aarschot, BELGIUM - JUN 8, 2003
Very dark colour, slightly brownish head. Malt, sweet, caramel aromas. Sweet malt-flavours. Quite goog finish.
