I really like this style, but this one is just too sweet, like they poured sugar in it. A shame.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
In Leuven at the ZBF 2001 vintage version. Pours clear dark brown...no hazy appearance due to the aging and also almost no foam. Nose of prunes and liquor notes. Watery mouth. Good beer but I think not for aging.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Clear reddish brown colour, white head. Aroma of cherry, iron, malts, capers, reminding somewhat of tuna salad. Light sour aroma, iron, malts, light sweetness. Quite thin. Finish cherry, red fruits, some sweetness. Not my favourite Oud Bruin.
(From 25cL bottle @ Oirschot tasting. Thanks for sharing, Benzai!)

Bottle shared with Joes, Dutchdrebus, Ansjelaah and Martinus. Clear red brown color, small white head. Smell and taste lightly malts, just slightly sourish, lightly sourish fruits. Not bad actually, very easy drinkable and quite subtle. Average body and carbonation.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Aroma of cherry, lavender, apple with very light acidity. Appearance was ruddy red/brown with bone head. Flavor matches the nose; a surprising herbal hop presence comes in at the finish. Palate is medium, chewy and soft. Good.
