Pours a medium red brown with a fluffy head that drops away quickly. A little cherry nose and sweet black cherry flavor. Finishes quickly.

ApariBuen aroma, ligeramente acido, vinagre, madera. Se percibe ligeramente notas a levadura. En apariencia color obscuro profundo, cuerpo redondo, corona de espuma media de baja retencion. En boca suave, ligeramente acida peroo bien equilibrada. Al paladar en primera instancia es seca y ligeramente acida. Posteriormente tras el paso por la lengua se equilibra para dejar paso a sabores frutales principalmente cerezas y nuevamente al caracteristico sabor ácido originado por la guarda en barrica. En resumen una cerveza más seca y fuerte que lo acostumbrado, sin embargo agradable y la cual se debe consumir con tranquilidad para apreciar cada un de sus diferentes sabores.

scent is certainly sour. taste is of fermented fruit and some hops. sour after taste. just the right amount of carbonation. I could drink this again.

Such a tiny bottle (8.4 ounces); I would like to try this again before finalizing an opinion, but it struck me as a fine beer.

I grabbed a bottle of Petrus Oud Bruin hoping for a good surprise in a style I already love. The pour did not radiate optimism, leaving me rather impassive to its vapid brown body and fizzy gray head. Nonetheless, the nose successfully combines natural aromas of green apples, brown sugar, pepper, and caramel to surprising scents of soap, banana yoghurt, leather and chocolate chip cookies. This sweet and airy fragrance does not translate well onto the palate, unfortunately, as it seems faint and watered down. Flavors of sour cherries, grapes, oak, coffee, caramel and a slight metallic tone blend with little impact, seemingly sharing a will to vanish in neutrality. The Flemish Sour Ale generally resounds as a strong and characterful style, but this example is decidedly antagonistic.

Pours dark red with a nice sour/tart aroma. Body is not as flavorful with no tartness and just a little but of caramel malt finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

geophagus (244) - Lubin, POLAND - MAY 10, 2013
(Bottle 75 cl) Dark brown, untransparent color. Brown, medium sized, creamy head. Medium body, a bit creamy texture. Soft carbonation. Aroma is winey, funky, with oak barels aromas and basement with notes of red fruits. Taste is good balanced with soft to medium strong sourness and notes of caramel malts. Dry but not watery beer with interesant character of red wine.

Out of bottle smells of citrus tastes of multiple fruits pretty good I just don't think 3.50 for 1 bottle is worth it. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

brownish red pour. decent foamy head. light aroma of malt and sour. light funk in the taste with cherry malt and oak. everyhing was balanced well nothing really tanding out. decent flanders style. expected it to be a bit more sweet. light bubbly mouthfeel. easy drinker and good initial step for someone unfamiliar with the style.
