Pours like a brown, with a red-brown color. Taste is a strange but delicious combination of malt and sour cherries, but it is balanced and really works! The tartness lingers on the palate, but does not pucker. Definitely a winter beer.

Aged in Oak casks for 2 years,this beer comes packaged in the familiar brown 8.4oz bottle with a crimson foil wrap.There was a sourness in the nose that I was expecting from having had the Petrus Aged Pale in the past,but there were hints of nutmeg and citrus there also.A fluffy tan head rose from tiny bubbled carbonation.It had a hazy-chestnut color and left some lace on the glass post sip.A meak sourness and smooth mouthfeel with a drying(oak)follow through.It was a bit thinner than I remember the Aged Pale being,but all in all a non-remarkable sour brown

Light sour with some oak dour comes through more the more you drink pitched dregs into starter

Pours dark brown with a huge, quickly disappearing beige head. Smells... extremely Belgian; fruity, yeasty, and with an indescribable funk. Tastes sour immediately upon sipping but mellows out very quickly, leaving a caramel aftertaste. Fairly insubstantial mouthfeel. Pretty good beer--wouldn’t run out and buy it again, but I’d drink it if it was offered.

Nice dark red brown colour. Aroma is musty and vinous with cherry tones. Head retention is sorely lacking. Flavour is a bit thin and not overly acidic. This beer is hardly exceptional the way this kind of beer can be.

A very light sour beer. Not too sour, and not very sweet at all. Well carbonated and a clean, crisp finish. A great beginner sour beer, and it also pairs nicely with an aged white cheddar cheese. Yummy.

Just how you want a Flemish Old Brown Sour Ale to be.
Pours a lovely dark ruddy brown, like old polished oak.. A little ring of off-white foam around the outside. Subtle, musty smell. Tastes sour, but in a spritzy, pleasant way, very balanced flavour, short dry aftertaste. Low on acidity so much smoother than other Old Brown Sour ales I have tried.

This beer had a nice caramel color. It started with a slight tart taste of mild cherries with a slight oak flavor. Almost a flemish light taste to it.
