Barreras (1157) - Diamond Bar, California, USA - APR 17, 2015
Pours a red/brown color with a ripened fruit aroma. Taste is cherry tart mixed with a sour citrus flavor. Notes of prune and raisins. A slight sweet acidic aftertaste that ends dry and very drinkable.

Old rating. Sweet, but not too complex. Flanders brown red color. Oak, cherry, malts, lightly tart, very sweet. Okay stuff.

brnandersen (2276) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - APR 10, 2015
25 cl. bottle poured in to a Snifter. Dark brown colour with a reddish tinge. Dense, lightly tanned head. Acidic aroma with sour cherries, wooden notes, berries, citrus, light caramel malts. Taste is sour. Medium body with a creamy texture and a soft carbonation. Finishes dry and tart with cherries, wooden notes and a good fruitiness. Not the most complex and sour Oud Bruin I had. However, a nice, refreshing beer.

guiroul33 (175) - Bordeaux, FRANCE - APR 4, 2015
Bottle 25cl from Bierhall de Koninck, @ home. Cola color, white thin head. More accessible than most other oud bruin, a bit too sweet and somehow lacking of complexity. Good though.

Calisky (1397) - ALSACE, FRANCE - FEB 27, 2015
Couleur brune sombre, reflets pourpres, légère mousse beige qui disparait. Nez vineux, vieux fut de vin, note cerise noire et sucre. Gout fruité cerise noires a peine vinaigrées, malt et note boisée. Pas trop dans l’aigre/acidulé, plutot dans le fruité de vieux fut, renfermé. Fin légère sucrée fruité cerise.

AshtonMcCobb (3493) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - FEB 26, 2015
On keg at Holyrood 9A. This said 6% on the pump clip, so slightly confused. Appearance - brown with a thin head. Nose - sour, dried fruits, HP sauce, a little winey too. Taste - more of the same. Would be great with food. Palate - light to medium bodied with a texture through the middle section which is very tight but very powerful. This continues through the finish which lasts ages. Overall - the original and the best in terms of Flemish Brown.

BiddleBrau (998) - Fort Washington, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 24, 2015
Tap at Shep 1/31/12. Clear brown, thinner white head. Nose is malty, hint of sour cherries and oak. Flavor is lightly tart, carbonation provides some bite but that minimizes quickly. Overall flavor is light, crisp but with great Flanders flavor.

olliejobbins (1203) - Dorking, Surrey, ENGLAND - FEB 11, 2015
250ml bottle. pours clear brown/chestnut/dark ruby. aroma is sour, tart cherries and vinegar. great taste. a mix between sour fruit and sour wine/vinegar/yeast. particularly good considering it can be had for 80p.

MichaelAwesome (5110) - Wanne-Eickel, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - JAN 12, 2015
Wunderbar. Selbst wenn man, wie ich, Liefmans gegenüber recht skeptisch eingestellt ist. Doch dieses Piwo ist wunderbar ausbalanciert in seiner milden Säure und einer angenehmen Kernigkeit. Etwas vergorene Früchte, etwas an Nüssen, dazu eine wundervolle Spritzigeit. Ein klassisches mit einem feinen Hintergrund.

McTapps (5122) - Ruhrcity, GERMANY - JAN 12, 2015
Bottle from Calisky - thank you, Fred. The beer has got a deep brown colour with an low head and medium body. Aroma of acid and malt. Taste of mild malt, mild vinegar, bread, barley, unripe berries and woods. Light acid finish with some bread aftertaste. Not bad but I expected more.
