Hansen (6991) - 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 (8100) - 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 (10777) - 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 (1611) - Aarschot, BELGIUM - JUN 8, 2003
Very dark colour, slightly brownish head. Malt, sweet, caramel aromas. Sweet malt-flavours. Quite goog finish.

Ungstrup (29957) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - MAY 14, 2003
A deep red beer with no head. The aroma is slightly sweet and sharp. The flavor is very round, very sweet, and slighlty acidic with notes of berries. A fine flavor but not anything special. OK beer - but my exspectation was higher.

madsberg (10524) - Søborg, DENMARK - MAY 11, 2003
Bottled at the Danish Beerfestival 2003: Clear reddish coloured. Has a medium white head. Aroma is fruity and has malt accents. Is fruity and sour flavoured. The sweetness and sourness mingles pleasantly on the palate. Unfortanately it disappears quickly and don't last long.

Voivod (304) - Como, ITALY - MAY 11, 2003
[on tap] Ruby red colour, good creamy head. Fruity aroma (cherry and raisins). The flavour is quite sour, vinous, fruity (Cherry and raspberry). Bittersweet finish. As the beer warms the flavour becomes too sweet and loses some of its sourness. Pleasant, but probably not enough complex.

skortila (4648) - Baarn, NETHERLANDS - MAR 4, 2003
Sweet, bit malty smell, fruits. Dark brown/red coloured. Head disappears. Acidic/sour, winy taste, fruity and very malty. Bit sweet palate. Good.
