UPDATED: DEC 5, 2007 No#68. (2002). This was one of those beers that i could just drink for days. Aroma comes off sourish, yet still a little sweetness and fresh also. Taste is sweetish for the style, still a bit sour. Maltiness comes in too, and an unexpected warming from it, with it only being 5% ? I want this again and a few bottles at that to keep me going. RERATE: Same score, alround a really nice sour yet balanced session ale, that id love to sit an have pints of.

Bottle: Dark brown coloured with an mid-sized brownish head; fruity, sourish nose with a tinge of caramel, also: balsamico, port; initial sweet-sour fruity taste, mild sweetish flavour; gentle fruity-sourish finish with a touch of "barrique" and some "iron" (?). Not so complex as the "Goudenband", but very pleasant and going down well. Moreish !

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottled 25cl (BBE 03/2007)
Different (brown-blue) label.
Ruby red, small mostly vanishing tanned head. Quite typical FSA nose: sour (vinegar, balsamico) and sugary. Carbonated, a bit sweet, finishing sourish, oily aftertaste. Quite good example of this style, so if you want your first Flemish Sour Ale, this is easy one to start.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
A cola-coloured (brown-black) beer with a small pale brown head. A very complex taste, a bit malty and sweet but the nice sourish taste is overwelming. A very good sour ale. (Bottle 25cl)

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Draught. Dark brown colour, red hue. Big creamy, light brown head, quite stable. Aroma of acidic berries. Very sweet, acidic flavour. Some berry/raisin/grape notes. Aftertaste has a very tiny hint of sheery/prune. I am not a fan of oud bruin, but I think I would prefer it less sweet than this.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at the white horse. Pours a cloudy deep brown hue with a light frothy head with sour aromas and flavors. Not as acidic as I would have thought. Flavor was much better than the aromas.

Creamy and compact foam. Supporter and of good persistence. Dark color red, dense and crisp. Medium scent of red fruit and wine. Round, dry taste with a light body but decide.Perfumed and pleasant, even if it’s not the best flemish that i had tried.
