bottle ( 2005 vintage ) at kulminator
pours very dark red, no foam . smells aged ( in a good way, as always at kulmi ) sweetness vs sour
taste is still very nice ! typical fob , LOVE it ! with a rather fruity-based side ( even after 8 years)
aged FOB = epic !

Bottled: Reddish brown coloured. Huge dense brownish head. Has a huge vinegar nose. Notes of prunes. Flaovur is full of vinegar as well. Is sour and has a balanced fruityness. Is dry and medium bodied. Ends on light sour fruitnotes. I really dig this beer.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Dark brown colored with a red gleam and a frothy light tan head. Aroma of vinegar and balsamico with cheesy tones, typical flemish sour. Rather sweet and sugary flavor and dry as hell. Malt, vinegar and candy notes. Typical flemish sour ale characteristics though more sweet than the average beer from Verhaeghe.

3.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: OCT 4, 2004 (Brewed and labelled following the recipe(???) of the former Bevernagie brewery at Lichtervelde)
Head gone in seconds, reducing itself to little brownish rim; deeper brown beer with reddish shine. Very vinegary-wooden nose, even a bit too much - smells like vegetable - preserving vinegar. Again vinegar (& woody) and not too refined. this is the taste idea, but much more extreme than St. Jozef at Lichtervelde would have done. Fruity-vinous flavours. Sharp mouthfeel, definitely. Aftertaste is a bit less sharp, much more rounded. It's OK. But I imagine the nose could put off scores of people.

Brown reddish coloured with a small off-white head. Nice malty and fruity aroma, some raisins, and cherry? Medium body, light sour, with a good balanced finish, sweet-sour. A nice Flemisch sour ale.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Commissioned by a drinks center in Lichtervelde and actually a sweeter and heavier version of Vichtenaar. Loose, beige, thin head, deep red brown colour with yellowish hue, clear. Strong fruity and estery aroma with hints of melon, strawberry, blackcurrant, vanilla, oak, cheese spread, yoghurt, caramel; delicate sweetness in the mouth, caramelly, not cloying, fresh citric and lactic acidity, malt sweetness, sour sweet finish, soft and dryish with a little hop bitter touch. Not their best oud bruin in my opinion, but still a genuine and very enjoyable example of the style.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cloudy dark amber color. Light sour and fruity aroma. Light body structure, some sweetness, light fruity touch. Ends with some strawberries. Simple among the Flemish Sour Ales, but still quite good.
