On tap at Arends Nest Amsterdam. Dark brown beer cola colour lasting beige head. Sour aroma. Rather a lovely sour dark mild with dark cherry. Yes a little sweetness but I thought really interesting.

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.

JefVerstraete (2837) - Oosterzele, BELGIUM - JAN 17, 2015
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 (4467) - 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.
