3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
(bottle) pours a clear dark ruby colour with a frothy off-white head. aroma of citrus fruits, custard, caramel and strawberries, slightly earthy with a hint of lactic acid. flavour is mostly the same, quite fruity, with hints of barnyard, milk chocolate, cookie dough, grain and a minerally finish. light-bodied with average carbonation. quite good for sixty cents a bottle.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
(Bottled, BBE 12/2011) Very nice blood-red color with a smallish, but firm and lasting, tanned head. Tart, vinegary aroma with some caramely-roasted maltiness. Flavor is mildly roasty, mildly vinegary, only slightly sugary-sweet. Almost medium body, foamy CO2. Normally Iím not such a big fan of Oud Bruins, but this is quite nicely balanced (sweetness & tartness) and refreshing. 4264

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cheesy sock, iron filings, red wine aroma....turning to sticky Chinese sauce, cinnamon, chip shop batter. Unique. Pours ruby with audible fizz, forming a stable beige collar. More of that deep fried, sticky Chinese flavour; syrupy oak with a tingle of cinnamon-dusted plain yoghurt, and rust, and cereal boxes. Sugared on the lips like a sticky plum sauce. I like a beer that challenges my descriptors, and this is doing just that. Fair play.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Sour-sweet smell, wood, fruits, milk, liquor. Probably not my beer... Looks are ok brown with a medium had, but it colapses to soon. Just a small head stays. Should get 2.5... Taste is sour fruits, some wood. I know sour ale is not my stuff, but itís better drinkeable then expected. The sourness is not to overwhelming. In fact, besides itís a bit to much mouthfeel like a soda and itís even pretty sweet, itís drinkeable. But this type of beer wonít be my favorite to soon.
