3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle at Strijdershuis in Bruges, as we drank our way through the Strubbe range.
Dark maroon and brown with a big fluffy white head that settles slowly to leave a delicate lacing.
Aroma of dark fruit and roasted malts.
Flavors of light smoke and toffee with sourness from the middle to the finish.
Decent enough body.
Good example of the style, pleasant and drinkable.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle (small sample). Brown pour. Complex nose - main element is fruit. Taste starts out fruit then moves to something else - kind of funky and hard to describe.

10th May 2008. A brown beer that reminds of Duchesse Du Bourgogne but is much less sour and really quite sweet. Soft mid finish with a hint of sweet coca cola.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a nice ruby color with a small espresso swirl. The aroma is tart and musty while mildly fruity. The flavor is winey and mildly sour with some cranberry, nice but a little off.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
The description sounds awesome, but this beer just isn’t very good. Some oak and malt, with a little sugar, but more of a dry-oak flavor than anything else. What flavor there is, is very light. Thin palate. Disappointing.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle share thanks to rustychiles. Pours a deep red/brown. Aroma is mild sourness, oak, cherries, and chocolate. Taste is lots of chocolate, cherries, and extremely mild oak/sour tang. This is not what I would consider an oud bruin. Much more like a very traditional old ale with the brett touch. Very tasty, just not really to style in my opinion. Quite unexpected.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle courtesy of Tytoanderso.
Pours a reddish brown with a light brown head. Aroma is subtle oak, cherries, touch of funk, some sweetness. Flavor is cherry, oak, yeasts, funk, a very light sourness melds with sweet candi sugars. Drinks way too easy. Good brew, but not what I expected at all.
