3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Old notes. On tap @ Bierkoning’s Molen tasting in 2008/2009, with Menno pouring himself. Red-brown color. Aroma’s: not quite lactic acid, but fruity sourness instead (apples?), old, woody, roasted/stout-ish. Flavor is moderate sour with some malty sweetness. Light body. Fairly dry, presumably from the tannines. Rather complex, not entirely in the Flemish sour brown tradition, but interesting enough.

3.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 13/20
De Molen’s take on oud bruin, with thinnish, quickly dissolving head and deep copperish brown colour. Aroma of caramel, sour apples, peaches, wine vinegar, passion fruit, redcurrant, medium dry sherry. Estery fruitiness in the mouth, fresh, lightly sweetish, thinnish mouthfeel and even a bit watery finish, light sourish, could have been better balanced. One of the lesser beers I had from this brewery so far, but still more than decent.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle @ Kiss The Kitchen Floor or better known as ZZT VI (2013): kindly shared by Joes, thanks! Bottle no. 286/560:
Light hazy cloudy brown colored beer with a ruby tint when held in a light source. No head, not even bubbles.
The aroma has a lot of overripe fruit, some yeast, hint of sugars.
The flavours also have some fruit tones but nothing overripe. There’s also hints of bay leaf, yeast, bread, hint of rye, light light sour and malts. Bumit light overall but not bad.
The aftertaste is light, barley malts, brown sugars, yeast... Thin and quickly disappearing.
No carbo, watery mouthfeel, medium body and a watery texture.
Not bad, but hoped for more.
