Medium brown - mostly clear - slightly tart aroma - notes of spice, nuts, sour cherry, vanilla and malt. Flavor is lively & tart, without being unpleasantly sour or funky. Sort of remindes me of Duchess de Bourgogne only a little more sweet and mild.

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.

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.

martin00sr (506) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - JUN 8, 2014
Slightly hazy, red brown. Small, creamy offwhite head. Aroma us vinous, acetic, some wood perhaps, but not sure. Flavour has malt, caramel and discrete spicyness. Good, acetic sourness. Rather dry, bitter sour finish.

obguthr (3663) - Staunton, Virginia, USA - JUN 7, 2014
New rubber, with currant and apple core highlights, tart. Clear rust colored, thick tan head. Low tartness, low character. Apple core is dominant. Subtle woodiness in the finish, but not really oaky. Really mild, light bodied, somewhat spritzy. Could be much better. To quote Elivs Costello, "Pump it Up!"
