Draft at Trinity Brass Tap. Pours a dark reddish brown color with a small off white head. Aroma is mostly cherry with a slight bit of malt. Flavor starts out with cherry sweetness that finishes with a fair amount of tartness. Not as sour as I hoped. I prefer their Our Bruins and Aged Pale more.

Laten we duidelijk zijn: ik hou niet van kriekbier. Er stonden wat onbekende bokbieren in de schappen van de plaatselijke supermarkt en deze stond er ook bij. Etiket niet gelezen, dus mijn verbazing was niet positief toen ik het bier rook en proefde. Maar na een paar slokjes begon hij mij wel te bevallen. Een donkerrood bier met een snel verdwijnende cremekleurige schuimkraag. Geur van kersen en mout. Smaak ook kersen en mout, maar wat zoetigheid van marsepijn en wat licht rokerig. Een volle smaak dat wel. Nasmaak is licht bitter met kersen, niet onaangenaam. Al met al in eerste instantie niet blij verrast, maar hij begon mij wel te bevallen.

Dark ruby red, beige creamy head that nicely laces this ale. Sweet cherry nose. Taste has big sweet cherry flavours too, a little tard vinegar, slightly bitter, far away cask and barnyard. Medium carbonation, good body, oily dry mouthfeel.

Dark red in colour with a slight tan head. Over-riding nose of sweet cherries. Very strong flavour of cherries. Slightly creamy. Nice as a sipper, not sure I could manage a lot of it.

brnandersen (1928) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - SEP 12, 2014
33 cl. bottle poured in to a Snifter. Dark brown colour with a reddish tint. Creamy, lightly tanned head with red hues. Sweet aroma with marzipan, cherries, caramel malts, sugar, light oak and vanilla. Taste is sweet - not not as sweet as the aroma might suggest. Medium to full body with a creamy texture and a soft carbonation. Finishes slightly dry with cherries, rich malts. The cherries turns more tart in the finish. Definitely an Oud Bruin to the sweeter side. The sweetness is overpowering some of the complexity usually found in this style. Nice, trough.

11.2 ounce bottle poured into a brandy snifter. Pours a dark red with a beige red hued head of foam. Good retention. The aroma is big fruit and funk with bit of wine-y jolly ranchers. The taste is ppredominantly sweet with a bit of dry wine character coming through. Not much in the way of sourness. Prickly mouthfeel and moderate carbonation. Not bad.

"Bit surprised by the awesome rather assertive cherryrifficness of this beer. Kinda like you blended a world class Belgian Red with the so so Petrus Brown. Looks nice, smells like a burst of cherries with light funk and cola underneath. A little more of the cherry cols in the flavor with some tartness and a nice finish. A little on the sweet side, but not to a fault. Good stuff. 4 packs or 750."

Bottle from Bruges. Pours ruby with a little tan froth. Sweet black cherry aroma. The taste is sweet cherries initially with a little sherbet before a sour woody finish with lingering cherries. A touch thin perhaps.
