Described as "Ouid Bruin" = Old Dark, top-fermented. Really very nice, and it was dark with a bit of a sweet taste. My first Belgian, I believe, and it’s true, they are like nothing else.

Draft at Burp Castle. Pours dark reddish brown with practically no head. Aroma is light, tart cherries and some earthiness. Taste is a balance between tart fruit and sweet caramel. Bright on the palate, light body, light finish.

This is one of my favorite wild ales, perhaps because the sourness is somewhat more muted than others. It is sour yet it does have an element of maltiness with an oaky companion. The element of sourness definitely dominates, hops are not easily detected. The head is a foamy white that dissipates fairly quick and stays as a halo around the glass. The color is a slightly hazy dark brown. The nose is slight vinegar & sour plum.
Poured from 11.2 oz bottle; 5.5 ABV ; 8.17 BD

nice dark brown colour somewhat metallic in taste though. I was surprised to discover it’s a flemish sour... I was certain it was trying to be a belgian strong ale. There is a definite sour taste. It’s not that great.

Very "polite" sour ale. Medium bodied, reddish-brown. The acetic aroma could be more perceptible. Initially nice frothy head after several minutes descends completely. Dark fruits in taste with some sour flavour. Overall nice beer but nothing special.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
250 ml bottle - pours dark, dark brown, with a large off-white head. Aroma of sour grapes and malt vinegar and some graininess as well. Flavour less boldly sour than the nose, and more complex, too. Sour red cherries, red plums, and grapes with a quick wave of smoky malt near the back of the palate. Fading sourness at the end, and a very dry finish. I like this one.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle, pours a dark red/brown color, with a tan head and decent lace. Slightly sour aroma, faint medium malts, are also noticible. Slight sour flavor nothing like a Rodenbach or Duchess, A bit watery on the palate. Also slight metallic hops but very slight, some notes of oak. Nice but very light I was hoping for something a bit more sour.
