3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
500 ml. bottle. Pours a medium ivory, well retained head, with bit of lacing, over a slightly hazy, reddish amber (SRM 18) body.....nose is sour cherry, light balsamic vinegar....taste is sour cherry, balsamic vinegar, slight musty barnyard, with light sweetness.....mouth feel medium, slightly sticky, alcohol warmth present, carbonation low. This is a different sour. The slight sweetness takes away from the complexity and the refreshing nature of many in this very broad style. BJCP 7/3/13/4/7

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 12/20
500ml bottle, 9.75 % or 9.99 % abv, from Vinmonopolet Vika. Shared with Finn. Bubbly, beige surface. Dark orange coloured body with a slight haze. Oaky dry smell of yeasty fruitiness. Blended dry, tart and sweet taste with raspberry, malt and fruit. Very dry ending added by tart berries. Full bodied, but not extreme in any way. Good cleanser (Tromsø, 04.10.2012).

1.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 5/20
Pours an amber pour with a small tan head. Smells strangely like soy sauce. Harsh acetic notes, some dark fruits, strawberry, and raspberry fruit notes. Weird sweetness to it, too. The vinegar dominates the flavor. A bit of strawberry and raspberry, some soy sauce saltiness, a bit of nail polish remover and solvent harshness to it.

Bottle @ Dan’s house. Pours a hazy reddish orange appearance with very little head. Spicy, vinegar, balsamic, weird berry aroma. Super gross, acetic, acetone, vinegrette, super acidic, nasty flavor. Very hard to drink.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
50 cl bottle @ home. Rated on 18.06.2011
Aroma is sourish with cherries and some oaky notes. Flavour is sour and somewhat sweet with woody notes, some cherries and vinegar. These Oud Bruin beers are just not my thing.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: AUG 15, 2012 Somewhat clear brown body, creamy tan head, surprisingly. Fermented fruit, pickled raisins, some dead hops. Sourness, yes, but loads of residual sugars, brown sugar and fruit juice concentrate. This is crazy... Quite surprised by this one, much better than expected for a 10% sour ale. (At the De Molen tasting)
