Bottle. Deep dark brown colour with a medium rather short off-white head. Mild sour malty aroma with dark fruits. Good mouthfeel. The flavour has a soft sweetness with dark malts, dark fruits and a pleasant not so profound sourness.

kpresley77 (146) - Jackson, Georgia, USA - AUG 14, 2008
Bottle courtesy of fonefan pours dark brown with thin tan head. Aroma is like sweet and sour fruits. First taste is tart then a slight sweetness comes in. Slightly watery bitter finish. Not really my style of beer.

Marko (4301) - Split / Zagreb, CROATIA - JUL 10, 2008
Bottle, 1982 vintage (Clarysse), at the RBESG08 grand tasting. Wow... a beer at least 4 years older than me. Impressive. Murky brown colour. Slightly acidic prosecco nose. Light appley taste, acidic aftertaste and finish. A very interesting experience and I kinda liked it.

1982 version
Clear orange to brown color, white head. Sweet wood scent. Acidic and metallic taste, also salty. Medium mouthfeel, low bitterness. I usually don’t go for the Oud Bruins, but this one was rather nice.

beastiefan2k (2830) - Emerald City (formely NYC & KS), Washington, USA - JUN 5, 2008
Old bottle, forgot to record the date though. This was also the last beer I drank on my Belgium trip. Served in a lambic basket and poured with a small head. Aroma is very balsamic vinegar aceto and some light oily cherry. Taste is some balsamic vinegar with some oily chocolate and acidity in the finish. All of the flavor finishes quickly, must be a trait in Felix brews. Good stuff, still has plenty years of aging on it.
750mL bottle @ Kulminator in a Speciale Felix large tulip on 5/22/08.
