UPDATED: JUN 30, 2015 Aroma of tart cherries, brown sugar, hint of vinegar, malt. Flavour is moderate to medium sweet and moderate sour. It’s a shame about the sugary sweetness.

Tap @ Posthoorn, Maastricht. Brown colour, white foam. Balsamic vinegar, berries, brown sugar. Nice taste but without sugar this would be very nice! Too sweet.

Alengrin (4159) - BELGIUM - AUG 24, 2014
Remarkable blend of Gulpener Oud Bruin with a wood-aged beer undergoing a controlled lactic infection and sweetened. Made for De Zwarte Ruiter and in existence for many years already. The result is very much like a Flemish oud bruin, with yellowish foam and a dark burgundy colour. Aroma of nuts, chocolate, overripe fruits, Worcestershire sauce, sour cream, sherry; fruity and malty taste ’cleansed’ by a soft lactic acidity, some woodiness, dryish sourish finish. A classic, predating many attempts at oud bruin made by younger breweries.

PotjeBier (2471) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - JUN 28, 2014
Tap @ Beer Temple - sample share with bierkoning, benzai, theJvd, andrejes & joes (Brett fest 2014). Long, long time since I last had this. Clear dark brown-red color. Dense off white head with good retention and lacing. Aroma’s: sweet & sour, light fruit (cherries?), dark sugar. Some wood retronasal. Flavor is moderate to full sweet & moderate sour. Light bodied, but certainly not thin. Finishes with a light bitterness. Lovely.

Tap at de poshoorn. Came in an awesome ceramic stein that I will hopefully upload a picture of. Giant off white head. Sweet nose with peach and berry notes. Just a touch of sour in this. Real smooth and a great after meal beer. Tartness comes out mire in the finish. Flavors of black and blueberry throughout.
