Bottle with Belgian Family Brewers at Lindemans
not overly sour, sherbetty, woody, lactose sweetness, high carbonation, citrussy, corn notes, harsh, too much young sweet brown ale, insufficient lambic for balance.

Tide (2696) - Espoo, FINLAND - SEP 6, 2015
Bottle from Alko. Dark brown color, beige head. Bittersweet taste with nuts, caramal, toffee, toast and a bit of oak. Bittersweet finish with toffee, nuts, plum and toast. Decent brew, but not really sour at all, maybe a bit too sweet even.

RexTalionis (3378) - FINLAND - SEP 5, 2015
Bottle. Mahogny ruby, small off-white head. Berries and lots of artificial notes in aroma. Not much difference in taste either. Quite horrible brew to spoil a good style.

metalspice (522) - Jevnaker, NORWAY - SEP 5, 2015
Mørk brun med et lite rødskjær. Lyst beige skum. Lukta bruker litt tid på å komme til sin rett, men når den slår til så er det tørket frukt og noe epler som dominerer. Smaken er mer umiddelbar. Tørket frukt sammen med vått høy og en behagelig surhet dominerer før den slår over i en lang bitterhet. Første forsøk på denne typen, er ikke skremt bort.

KansaiBeerLvrs (3999) - Kyoto, JAPAN - AUG 29, 2015
On cask, Tasting Set at La Becasse. Bourgogne 5% lambic, brown beer mixed and aged in oak, who knew? A nice looking deep brown with a sweet caramel brown sugar aroma. Med-light bodied with a fairly full smooth mouthfeel. The taste is malty caramel fudge with a bit of tartness around the edges. Easy to drink brown. Alright but the Doux is the best, if I ever get back here I’ll get the half liter of that for 5€ or hell the liter. Good stuff.

From a supermarket somewhere in Normandy. Pours a dark brown color, topped with a decent and lasting beige head. Mild aroma, a bit fruity with some yeasty notes, slight apple presence. Sweet and quite fruity start. A bit peppery and yeasty presence. Slight burn and mild bitterness. Burning feel in the aftertaste.

Bottle from Carrefour City supermarket, Brugge, Belgium. Hazy dark brown with a thin white head. It has a sharp cherry, spicy dried fruit and sherry flavour followed by slightly thin chocolate, vanilla and soapy sourness on the finish.
