QCBWarlock (44) - New Jersey, USA - JUN 25, 2013
On tap at Uno’s Hamilton. Complex, as this style often is. Dark fruit (mostly cherry) malt, and mild tartness. Vey nice. Suzy QCB enjoyed it as well

phfyysik (385) - Tartu, ESTONIA - APR 30, 2016
Pours dark red with strong off-white foam. Aroma is berry, some old cask, light cherry, currants. Taste is quite sweet, light fruits, cherry, alcohol, light radish, sweet grapes. Not bad at all!

Johnstledger8 (589) - Dublin, IRELAND - APR 16, 2016
Bottle. Pours a dark opaque brown with a mostly lasting beige bubbly head. Aroma is of nuts, caramel, slightly roasted, spice, hint of balsamic vinegar. Taste is of caramel, vinegar, dark fruits, some cherry notes, some acidity. Dry oily mouthfeel, medium carbonation.

sjogro (1906) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - APR 10, 2016
At home, bottle. Clear dark brown with white head. Didn’t expect the dark color! Fruity, sugary sweetness, with sour bend. Roastedness, roasted grain, sour grain, very old fermented cherries, chocolate malts. Over medium sweetness, under medium sour. High pitched sweetness like sugar replacements, aspartame & other crap. Very easy going, a bit too easy, kinda bland and mainly sweet. Enjoyed the kriek much more.

GioPiso (20) - ITALY - MAR 21, 2016
If (like me) you’re not a massive fan of sours, this brown is much more gentle than some of the red ones, not as acidic and leaves a much more pleasureable aftertaste on the palate

rodenbach99 (3976) - Longueuil, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 20, 2016
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 (1595) - 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 (6231) - 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 (206) - - 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.
