madsberg (9651) - Søborg, DENMARK - JUL 31, 2004
Bottled: Dark amber coloured. Has a brown touch. Unclear. Brownish thin head. Malt, berries, chocolate and some "old" fruityness in the aroma. Fruit, berries and a light sourness in the flavour. Sweet flavour dominant thoug. Reminds me a little of Duchess, but by far not so good. Nice night cap. Refreshing.

JensenTaster (1719) - DENMARK - JUL 28, 2004
(on bottle) This makes my wonder of the ambitions of the brewery. Yeah, ´cause I don´t get anything out of it. Sour cherrie and brown sugar, is the only carataristics(?) of this anonmes beer. Lots of carbonation makes it a foamy feeling with a bit of wood to the very last end.

BBB63 (5746) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - JUN 20, 2004
Bottle: Reddish brown with lasting head and very good lace. The aroma has notes of cherry, plum, raisin, oak wood, caramel, floral hops, and earthy yeast. The taste is slightly tart and fruity at first with a yeasty and malty follow-up. The finish displays a woody character and some light spiciness. The feel is bone dry and woody. Okay, needs to be slightly crsip and more defined. Quaffable.

fiulijn (13533) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 3, 2004
Dark amber color. Light aroma and flavor, somehow metallic; poor, not enough sweet nor sour, and by far not my favorite Oud Bruin.

Ungstrup (28448) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - APR 15, 2004
A deep red beer with a fantastic light brown head. The aroma is sour yet sweet with notes of raisins, vinegar, prunes, cherries, and wood. The flavor is more sweet than sour with primary notes of raisins, wood, and cherries. The end is slightly dry - but lacking body.

Jeppe (2631) - Ølbutikken, DENMARK - MAR 24, 2004
Pours a nice tan head on a dark brown body. Sour cherry and vinegar aroma with wood tones - very nice! Flavor is quite sweet at first contact but turns nice and sour. Vinous with cherry and wood and a dry finish. Another very good beer from Liefmans! I was really in the mood for this one!

Cobra (1100) - Banned City, - MAR 1, 2004
8.45 oz (25cl) slender brown bottle. Freshness date on cap is of Jan 2005. Poured out a reddish brown, slightly hazy color. Little to no head at all. Left a ring of foam around the edge of the glass. Aromas are of oak barrels, musty barn, tart cherries, lactic wheat malt, but no hop aromas at all. Tastes are of brandied cherries, lactic wheat, oak barrels, and slight balsamic vinegar. Not highly carbonated, but slightly tingly on the tongue. Thin mouthfeel kind of leaves you expecting something more. Tart taste, that leads to a sour finish. An ok Belgian, but nothing special in my book.

duff (5484) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - FEB 11, 2004
The aroma was promising, sour cherry, dusty and old. However there was an unexpected amount of sweetness in the aroma. Sweet chocolate, dark fruit to start, with only a hint of sour cherries or vinous characters. Not what i'd hoped for, but still tasty anyway.

Linc (737) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - JAN 18, 2004
Sweet and sour cola flavour with only a mild amount of funk to it. Considerably sweeter than I had expected.
