callmemickey (2273) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 7, 2013
Medium brown body thin pale tan head spotty lacing. Nose is acetic (but not overpoweringly so) light oak and must. Flavor is more mellow and benign. Medium bodied, light on carbonation, a bit thin in spots, light acetic acidity throughout.

This was solid. It had all the mellow sour brown flavors I look for in an Oud Bruin. My one complaint is that, while there was a hint of acetic sourness, the actual acidity seemed low.

Martinus (2630) - Nijmegen, NETHERLANDS - NOV 8, 2012
Dark amber brown beer, small beige head. Aroma of caramel, mocha, light fruit. Quite sweet, only light sour flavour. Finish sweet, light fruity, berries and apple peel.
Not bad, but doesn’t manage to come near the level of Goudenband.
(Draught @ ’t Waagstuk, Antwerpen)
