3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at One Pint. Auburn/brown pour with little to no head. Malty aromas. Light vinegar and cherry notes are overrun by the big malt characteristics. A little thin and watery. I would say it’s more along the lines of a sour bruin / Flanders’ Red.

Draught @ One Pint, Helsinki
Aroma is rather light with some berry juice and currants. Flavour has sourish berry juice, currants and hints of grapefruit.A bit watery. Usually I am not a friend of sour reds, but this had nothing offensive.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Old-fashioned and only locally distributed Oudenaards oud bruin, with a thin, off-white head and bronze colour; not bottled, only available from tap in Eine. Straightforward brown beer, malty with estery fruitiness, some iron, rather thin mouthfeel, decent, thirst-quenching. Not the best oud bruin at all but I do like its authenticity: this is the kind of beer that was drunk on a daily basis in this region decades ago, and I am all for the local traditions in this country.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Dark clear red pour with thin off white head. Aroma is roasty, light acetic notes, rich oak aromas, cherry, apple. Taste is tart, not very sour, light winey flavors, cherry, lots of oak. Palate is rather light, quite dry, medium carbonation, very easy drinking and refreshing. Not as sweet and full bodied as a lot from this style are but quite refreshing and tasty.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
25 cl. bottle @ home. Procured from Willems. BBF 03/12/2014. Very dark (almost touch black) vinous ruby with a small tanned head. Smells is quite weak, slightly oxidized, metallic, sweet spices, faint liquorish, not much to pick up here. Taste is sweet metallic, light oxidation, touch cacao, faint nuts (cue oxidation prob.), higher quality sugar, lots of herbs & quite heavy dried wine branch, wine leaves, faint red wine grapes. Body is a touch metallic but rich. Close but no cigar. Would have liked for more sourness here and no metallic notes. I had expectation, I cannot say that they were fully fulfilled but I would be lying if I said that I was entirely disappointed either.
