3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Has something to start with like a normal beer, but the ageing in oak barrels gives this beer something special, like the strong acid.

2.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Poured dark red, as it is aged in old sherry barrels. Sweet in taste with flavors of berries and malt. Nothing too special here.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
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!

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.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.
