Bottled. Sampled at Delirium Café, Göteborg.
Dark brown-ish. Middle of the road-oud bruin, I found this to be very quaffable, still not unforgettable. Milky acidic nose. Light body. Perfect balance of milky sourness and a tad sweetness. Good beer, but not the best of oud bruin.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
25 cl bottle. Pours a dark brown with a finger sized off white head that settled to a thin film. Aroma of malt, muscat grapes, slightly sweet and sour at the same time. Flavor is just slightly acidic with syrupy malt, grapes, and a dry soy sauce finish. Mouthfeel is medium bodied with a slightly cloying finish and soft carbonation. Overall this may not be one of the top beers in the style but it is incredibly drinkable.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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 !
