This one certainly looks good - dark red-brown with a lovely foamy head. I couldn’t make out much of a scent. Flavor was much like fizzy water. Palate is like a diet sprite. An overall disappointment.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bouteille de 33cl. Couleur marron rougeâtre, mousse correcte et de tenue correcte. Vieillit en fût de chêne, assez douce de par son attaque un peu sucrée qui laisse ensuite une pointe acidulée et boisée. Plutôt réussit pour le style, se boit bien. Trouvée à Lidl - Hénin Beaumont.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
It’s like liquid Sweet Tarts®. This stuff will get your gal power-drunk since it has none of the beer qualitites we all love. This will straighten her angles and solve her problems. Delicious stuff. Like a La Folie Light.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Sour almost vinegar, oak, musty deep reddish-brown, garnet(finally found a use for that word)...very little foam. acidic sweet tanginess in the finish, not a lot of malt, but a bit! enjoyable lingering taste??? You gotta like the funk/acid to like this beer. I'd like to use it in a sauce...

Bottle at beerbistro. Brown, slightly sour, but also sweet. I’m not sure I was a fan of the sweet ending in a sour beer, usually the sour aftertaste is what I crave. Was not a bad beer, but not really my thing.

This year's vintage is especially oud bruin-like. It has an excellent acitity combined with a rich malt backbone and is rather clean for an oud bruin.

(bottle) Dark brown body with a big, stiff tan head., moderate lace. Slightly musty/earthy aroma, wood, roasted malt, sour notes, fruit (cherry, apple). Light to medium body, lots of soft carbonation. Moderate sweet, sour fruit (grape, cherry, apple) and acidic, some yeast, dry finish. Nice balance.

Dark red-brown color.Short lived big bubbled head.Aroma is simple.Tarty,yeasty,slightly oaky.Taste also seems somewhat simple.Light fruit acidity pretty much controls the whole mouth feel.Palate is lacking also.Finish is best part of this beer IMO.Spicy,stale-hop,oakiness lingers for minutes after sips.Drinkable but not praisible.I’m ready for Rodenbach!!

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Deep mahogany color with a good sized bubbly head. Malty sour aroma, that is pleasantly subdued. Flavor is a nice balance of sweet malts, some subdued cherry sourness and a touch of piney hops. Some light hints of oaky vanilla as it warms. Not as complex as I would have expected, but very well rounded; smooth and drinkable.
