Style et résumé: Brune des Flandres classique.
Comment: Bouteille de 330ml assemblée en 2015.
Portrait: Un liquide brun avec une fine couche de mousse beige. Un nez fruité avec des notes de bois. Une bouche fruitée, légèrement amère, chocolat, bois et cerises. Le côté suret est bien intégré. Facilité déconcertante à boire.
Note: 8/10

Average creamy light brown diminishing head with murky dark brown body. Aroma of hay and toffee malt. Resin hops and cheese yeast. Light body with a thin texture and average carbonation. Average duration flavor of moderate sweetness, heavy acidity and bitterness. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Foffern (1643) - Bodø, NORWAY - MAR 15, 2016
Bottle at home. One year old bottle. Pours a clear nut brown color with a small light brown head. Aroma of vinegar, oak, brown sugar, dried fruit and wild berries. Pretty sweet flavour of brown sugar, apple cider vinegar, dried fruit, heather, oak and chocolate. Slick mouth feel, medium body and a very light bitterness. An easy-drinking and sweet oud brune.

Sigmund (6642) - Tau, NORWAY - MAR 12, 2016
330 ml bottle, from the Norwegian importer (I could swear I had rated this beer before, but apparently not). Dark reddish brown colour, large beige head. The aroma has first a whiff of smoke, then notes of red wine, red wine vinegar, oak and horse stable. Pleasant flavour, malty, fruity and only moderately sour, again notes of red wine, red wine vinegar and oak, hardly any noticeable hops. Still easy drinking, due to the fruitiness. The alcohol is well hidden. Nice one.

Scrumpy369 (439) - Budapest, HUNGARY - MAR 6, 2016
Bottle at home. Dark brown colour, with almost no head. Nose is basement, wet leaves, slight sourness. Taste is low bitterness, and low slightness. Complex tannins like a red wine. Sticky mouthfeel. Interesting experience, but won’t be my favorite.

BlackHaddock (6201) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - MAR 1, 2016
Cork and caged 375ml bottle at home on 29th Feb 2016. Had this years ago at the Liefmans blending facility in Oudenaarde after a tour around the place, very interesting place and a very interesting beer. Ruby hue to the red/brown body, no head worthy of the name. Really liked the semi-sour wine like feel to the brew and the deep body depth it has. Drinking this brought back some happy memories, I will be buying some more when I hit Belgium again.

BobyFischer (295) - FRANCE - FEB 25, 2016
Robe brune sombre zo reflets rubis-rouges-bordeaux. Nez fruité acide : cerises, framboises et mûres. Bouche acidulée et pareil à l’odeur : cerises, framboise et mûres.Le corps suffisamment ample assure un minimum d’équilibre et tamponne la forte acidité. Agréable, désaltérante et parfumée.

Bottle enjoyed at home
Pours dark dark red, big tanned head. Smell of raspberries, caramel, hints of strawberries, fruity malts. Moderate sweet, moderate to medium sour, strawberries, raspberries, a bit artifical i would say, not a big fan of these flavors. Moderate bitter, cherry stone finish
