3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Attempt at ’oud bruin’ by Buitenlust at the Proefbrouwerij, apparently not made anymore now. Coarse, off-white head, clear dark orangey blonde colour, notably paler than usual for an oud bruin, a bit reminiscent of Rodenbach Vin de Céréale or Bavik Petrus Aged Pale. Fruity, sourish character, earthy, a bit sulphuric but not really disturbingly so, lactic acidity, sweetish, full and creamy malt background, tart finish, dry due to sourishness. Actually very interesting, too bad it has been discontinued.

(bottle, 33cl) Hazy, amber colour with a tall and slightly tanned foamy head. Mildly sweet and leathery (cara-)malty aroma with hints of cherries, accompanied by notes of barnyard and a delicate acidity in the background. Moderately sour flavour, light to medium bodied with a soft carbonation. Cara-malty, slightly yeasty/bretty taste with notes of fruits and vinegar; sour-vinegary and tart, also quite lasting finish. 16.VI.11

A sour ale which had some cherry juice added to it. Not a fan of cherries, not a fan of this beer.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
25/09/2010 - 33cl @ Karakterbierfestival Bissegem
Pours a clear copper brown to red beer, fine white head. Aroma has lactose sour, green apple, geuze (bretta). MF is fresh, taste is tart, some sweet notes, geuze and caramel. Aftertaste is a little sweet and fruity with sour lemony notes. The beer tastes like a mixture of a Flemish red and a geuze, wich is no surprise if you know they added the Bretta yeasts to the red ale after brewing. Sort of cheating, but sort of very nice brew as well!

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottled (Best Before 2006). Ambery orange colour with mediumsized off-white/beigeish head, that leaves some lace. Aroma is sour wood, mild fruityness, some cherries as well as some mild spices. Flavour is quite similar with also some sweetish sour notes. Has aged quite well, but has some slight bothering sweetish edge, which I don’t know where it’s from.
