2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
deep ruby body with no head. Musky sour aroma. Very thin lifless body with sour malt flavors and not much more, I’m going to chalk this up to a poorly stored bottle as i have had these in the past and enjoyed them

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
A bit of a disappointment since I liked the sour Petrus Aged Pale which is blended into this Oud Bruin. Notes of oak, corn, dark fruit and cider. Relatively weak flavor and aroma. Not much tartness or sourness. Unoffensive flavor, but not bad either.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
This beer is tied with Monk’s for my favorite Flemish Ale to date. It features a lot of cherry aroma and flavor with a more subdued tartness and acidity.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Nice murky chocolate color. Little head in my St Bernardus chalice. Sour lighter fruits on the nose with some astringency and rubber. Some fresh mortar. Taste is more of the same, bursting through with even more fruits and some sour. What I love about this is that it changes character in your mouth like every second for like a count of seven. Awesome.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
cloudy brown with a hint of red, fluffy tan head and nice lacing. vinegar, cherry, raisin, lemon. light sourness for the style. light body, thin feel, lively carb. the light sour makes it easily drinkable, but it’s a bit of a letdown after the aroma.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 12/20
The aroma has mild citrus, wood, and vinegar. It pours a dark brown color with a tinge of red and thin white head. The taste is mostly a malty sweet but rounds out a little with light sour tartness. I was hoping this would be a bit more acetic but it mostly malty. The sourness is nice but gets lost a little bit.

Draft at Akkurat in Stockholm (thanks again Johan!) Refreshing is the key word with this beer. Bags of light berry and cherry fruit flavours with enough acidity to make it extremely thirst quenching but without setting your teeth on edge. Attractive chestnut brown colour. Uplifting!

330ml bottle from the LCBO. Beautiful pour with a thick white head. Fruity, with a bit of sour backbone. Very nice beer.
