4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
A sweet and sour aroma of flowers and apples. Appears clear light golden yellow, thin foam, but nice lace. Taste is mostly sour balanced with some sweet and slight bitterness of bubblegum and apple. Palate is a little foamy, and thinnish. Overall, this is a very good beer! Should be considered a Berlinerweise.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: FEB 22, 2005 Very different from any beer I’ve ever had. Sour brown ale. Brown bour with a light tan head that laced very well. Underwhelming aroma that’s sour and spicy. Sour flavor with a finish that left my mouth dried out. Very reminiscient of the Devil’s Horn without the raspberry finish.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Pours dark brown with a thin tan head and good retention. Aroma is spicy caramelly, with dark fruits and some metal. Flavor is sour with some metal, dark cherries and woody undertones. Too sour for me to enjoy, but I did not pitch it. Not bad.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
A- pours a dark amber brown with a small head that disappeared and left little lacing.
S- Vinegar, oak wood, dark fruit come out as the beer settles, sour green apple, and a bit of metal are there throughout.
T- Sour cherries, oak, vinegar up front all of that fades as you drink and the aftertaste is a muted version of what you get at first. Nice, but wish flavors were more pronounced throughout. Almost watered down at the end.
M &D- medium to light bodied and feels a bit watered down at times. Carbonation was fine but wish it had a nicer body but all that allowed for better drinkability. Although I could drink quite a few of these, I have other ones I would rather have.
Overall a nice beer but if I am looking for an old Bruin, I am looking for more than this one. Still a nice example and one that is easily accessible.

Sweet full aroma, hints at the wild. Taste is sweet and full, not at all light. Very carbonated. Very dark red color.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. A very clear brown with a foamy white head that diminishes to a thin film. Nose is sweet, a little doughy, a bit barnyardy, with a sour fruit tone. Flavor is light tartness carried by the effervescent carbonation alongside a medium sweet malt backbone. Reminds me of a very mild balsamic vinegar with its sweet/sour levels and balance. A pleasant brew, thought not particularly out of the ordinary for the style.

Dark Amber with good head retention, sour and malty aroma and flavor, kind of fruity, dates, prunes. Medium sourness and body. Just a little bit funky. Tasty beer.

A nice strong head accompanies this ale as it is poured. It takes a long time to settle, too. A nice even brown color. A light touch of malt with a bit of a tart attitude assails the nostrils. The tartness is proved by the light sourness on the palate. A really nice easy drinking refresher of an aged ale.
