fiulijn (14315) - 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 (29107) - 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.

motelpogo (6288) - Plzen, CZECH REPUBLIC - JAN 14, 2004
looked like a pretty old bottle but i'd have to ask per about that. used cricket pad aroma. tasted pleasantly musty with some red grape but alas not a lot of sourness

eczematic (1319) - Adelaide, AUSTRALIA - JAN 8, 2004
i was a bit surprised by this, it was quite a bit sweeter than i expected. liked odnar better (which i thought was the same thing in a different bottle) but maybe that's because it was older and leaner. this one's like a sweet, heavy red wine. chocolate and prunes in the body and then a mild semi-funky blue cheese finish. pretty tame all in all, richer than rodenbach but without the thirstquenching acidic edge. ta duff/per

jgb9348 (4650) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - DEC 3, 2003
Hazy brown colour with predominant ruby highlights and no head. Aroma of metal, blood, malt and sour fruit. Medium to Light-bodied; Sweet flavour initially of pears, peaches and granny smith apples fading to an inherent sourness. Aftertaste clean and a bit sour. Overall, a less flavourul flemish sour, but not too bad. Worth trying if you enjoy the style! I bought this 25 cL bottle at Whole Foods in Vienna, Virginia and sampled it on 22-November-2003.

wulfhere (217) - Billings, Montana, USA - NOV 12, 2003
Not many USA boys trying this one. I bought it bottled and imported in Fort Collins, Co or Denver, co I can't remember which. Nice nut brown/leather color to it, with a very pale off-white head with fine bubbles and good structure. The nose is very complex, but malt and a pungent acid edge predominate--there is some musty funk as well, but in a good way. The flavor is sweet--like candy sugar and malt, but quickly followed by a decidedly fierce sour character--more than the fruit lambics. There are also hints of toffee, orange, fruit (maybe cherry or cassis), and bread. Very complex and not easily described. Try one, and then you see what I mean!
