Maak_d (10) - - NOV 19, 2012
Aroma of caramel, cherry, raisins, and vinegar. Very nice dark amber color and clarity- poured a very thin head but left some lacing. Tastes sweeter than I’d imagined, slight oaky notes, low acidity, roasty. Kind of a sherry or Madeira flavor. Palate is semi-thick, with large tangible bubbles. Roasty

Garlic_of_Doom (443) - SWEDEN - JUL 24, 2014
Dark amber/redbrown with a off white minimal head. Aroma is tart and woody. Taste has raspberries, red currants, cereals, slightly tart and woody but most of all sweet. Too sweet. Thin body, soft carbonation, dry. Short after taste.

seynie (140) - Tienen, BELGIUM - JUN 30, 2014
Ruby reddish brown. Reminds me of Granny Smith apples. Not too sour and not too sweet. Finish is medium to short though, a bit of dryness there and some lingering fruits.

Unde (338) - 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 (403) - 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 (477) - 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 (939) - 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 (270) - 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.
