COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Flemish Oud Bruin, with lactobacillus, fermented in Bordeaux and whisky barrels, and afterwards blended. Not very sour , the bordeaux barrels really take center stage. Supremely sophisticated woody aged malt flavor. Mild milky to a whisky dense caramel malt base. Nice blend which gives a distinct more "serious" malt base from the whisky compared to many other Flemish oud bruins, as a consequence the body is more full and smooth.

harrisoni (14584) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - AUG 10, 2010
75cl bottle thanks to Menno for this one. Reddish brown, with a very slight haze. Very thin beige head. Definite red wine and woody aroma. A little vinous in the mouth. For a 5% odd ABV beer, it tastes heavier than it is. Some carbonation in mouth. The woodiness continues into the finish with more red wine and red berry fruits. Not really sour. Just a touch on the finish. Some dryness and tartness on finish. Touch of milky choc. Decent fruit on the finish. Interesting.

Nickls (1920) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - AUG 5, 2010
Bottle. Dirty, muddy brown with a light tan head, and just very murky looking. Aroma is full of cherries and a lactose like sweet/sourness. Very lightly funky aroma. A little too sweet in the taste for me. Sweetish cherries and some pruniness that finished with lactose and some decent woodiness and a light sourness. Medium body with softer carbonation. Not as sour as I would have like or funky, but all the same fairly solid.

lassem (652) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - APR 23, 2010
Big bottle. Stamped nr. 339. Dark and deep red with a tanned white head. The nose have clear notes of the red wine barrels. On top of that some wood, malts and sugar. The taste is sour with a bit of dish washer water in the finish. Some nice little farts, burned sugar, a heavy malt base, some wood and sour cherries. The name is absolutely well chosen for this beer

Bottle. [thank you skortila]
Pours deep, lovely, clear red with a small, frothy, off-white head. Look-wise, this isnít far beyond a Rodenbach. Aroma has red currants, some vinegar notes, red apple, light yeast and some oaky undertones. Low carbonation, fine mouthfeel and good dryness. Flavour is nice with red currants, red wine, grapes, sweetness, light oaky dryness. Slightly tart and fruity. The dryness and the oak enhances as it warms. Some toasted caramel drops by at the end. Good, dryish, oaky sour ale, even though it really isnít that terribly sour.

wyzzywyz22 (2066) - Wirral, Merseyside, ENGLAND - MAR 22, 2010
Bottle from Kris Wines, London. Some sourness in the nose with barrel and fruit notes also. Flavour had similar qualities with sweet malts and yeast also getting involved. Quite a wierd beer and whilst I enjoyed drinking it, Iím not sure Iím entirely sold.
