3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle, 25 cl. This is better than the old Felix brewed by clarisse, it’s like an Duchesse in a lighter version. Hazy very dark red/brown with a short lived beige head. Aroma malts a bit caramel, and cherry aromas. Medium body. Taste quite sweet with a good finish.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottled, BB december /2001. Decent aroma of caramel malts, raisins, fruitiness and dust. Quite winey. Hazy, brown coloured with a thin, off-white head. Lacing is quite okay for a beer this old. Taste is initially sweet and becomes more sour. Fruitiness and caramel, some tartness, quite winey, but not port-like. Dusty, aged taste. Bit dry finish. Nice stuff, but not really balanced in taste.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Aged small bottle, best before December 2001. Deep mahogny colour wit a tan head that reduced to a minimum. Wonderful aged beer aroma with all the essentials:raisins, dry dusty cellar, even tarter fruit. Mellow fruit, sour yoghurt countered by sweet caramel, definite dry cellar notes. Still medium-bodied, but rather flat with the years. It probably was not the sourest oud bruin to begin with, but age has added an extra dry twist to an already superb beer. Still very drinkable.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottled 1991 (37,5cl) - Orange brown hazy body, big bubbled lasting white head; Lots of sour brown malty vinegar aromas, but a quite thick layer of oxidization is covering all the pleasure; The body is better, deep, freshly sour, slightly lactic, with lots of sweetness backing it; It finishes long, at first freshly lactic sour, malty sweet with length, but again lots of oxidization age aromas is covering. This beer was to old.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle at home. Reddish brown. Decent foam. Lots of carbonation. Sweet, syrupy aroma. Fruity and sour. Make that, very sour. Can taste cherrys and alcohol, although overall % isn’t that high. I’m not sure how old my bottle is, but looks very old, part of a last batch sold at BierKoning, A’dam. Very sour indeed.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Thanks to hopdog for sharing. Pours a translucent deep ruby amber with an average off white bubbly/creamy head that left some spotty lacing. Aroma of tart cherries, pie crust, some barnyard, sweet malts some lingering funkiness. Flavor was kind of muddled with some sour fruits, sweet malts some caramel and apples.
