11.2 oz bottle pours a reddish dark brown with a frothy beige head and some lacing. Aroma is full of dark fruits (especially cherries with a hint of oak. Body is medium with enough carbonation to keep the moutheel lively. finish is has a tart/sour flavor, for 20 months on it is not that oakey. but an interesting beer

Een typische oud bruin zoals er zovele zijn, er niets speciaals aan deze. Jammer.

Bottle. Clear medium brown pour with a creamy beige head. Malty and lightly sour, some dark fruits and a bit of yeast. Nothing fantastic, but nice enough.

inbirraveritas (1230) - Budapest, HUNGARY - AUG 4, 2014
Bottled, 33 cl. Opal ruby colour, medium sized fluffy beige head, which diminishes quickly 2 a thin film. Mild nose of acid and some wood. The mild vineous aroma has caramel, sugar and apples, mouthfeel is slick. Dry, tart-earthy, somewhat woody finish. Mild and easy drinkable brew.

Swaroga (1314) - Brussels, BELGIUM - AUG 3, 2014
Butelka 33cl. OCZY : piwo ma kolor mahoniowy. Piana jest średniej wielkości i jest o kolorze brudnego beżu. NOS : piwo ma zapach karmelu i wiśni. Juź w zapachu jest jasne, że mamy do czynienia z kwaśnym piwem. Do tego można wyróżnić aromaty zielonego jabłka, białego wina, drewna i odrobiny dymu. USTA : piwo jest średnio nasycone, wodniste i puszyste o miękkiej teksturze, zresztą jak wszystkie Petrusy. Nuty słodowe przypominają z jednej strony tarte a z drugiej surowe ciasto. Słodycz jest umiarkowana, podkreślona ciemnym cukrem i karmelem. Kwaśność tego piwa nie jest przesadna. Przypomina nuty podobne do kompotu z wiśni i suszonych śliwek, choć tych ostatnich nie czuć aż dopiero po kilku łykach. Gorzkość piwa jest delikatna. piwo w posmaku jest cierpkie ale subtelnie i nie zalega. ODCZUCIA : to jest flamandzki ejl dla początkujących. Bardzo przyjemny w piciu, jeszcze bardziej przyjemny do obiadu czy przekąsek. Z drugiej strony chciałoby się bardziej bogatych nut słodowych i więcej aromatu chmielowego. OCENA : smak : 6/10 pijalność : 7/10 styl : +1

Deep dark reddish-brown, beige lively head. Thin aroma. Dry mouthfeel, tard, not too fruity, but nicely drinkable. Medium body and carbonation.

cards04 (1720) - Steinbach, Manitoba, CANADA - JUL 21, 2014
This is a very average oud bruin. Pours a nice mahogany. Aromas are some cherry and oak - but quite muted. Flavours are also subdued sour cherry and oak - a little sweet, sour, and bitter. But just a little...unfortunate. Not that punchy. very average.

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.

high_on_hops (612) - Burlingame, California, USA - JUN 22, 2014
Pours a medium hazy brown with a tan head. It has a nice, slightly funky aroma with some oak and dark fruit. The flavor is also slightly funky, with a semisweet malt backbone and a faintly tart finish.

Appearance - brown Aroma - nice fruity funk Mouth - high carb. Nice bite. Taste - has that sweet tart hit like a champagne. Not in your face tart or funk. Nice but a bit dry and light. Overall - very good but I like other sites much more. This is a bit light for me and borders on that champagne like mouth.

Bottle at Specialty Beer Cellar. Murky dark brown pour with reddish tints and an off white head. Sour vinegar bouquet. Sour berry skin and vinegar notes dominate. Some maltiness in the back. Average body and mouthfeel.
