haukur (1345) - Reykjavik, ICELAND - SEP 22, 2006
really really interesting and different. Aroma has louds of purfume, candy, sourness, bad coffee .. some cellar feel also. It´s not bad or good, but it´s massive and really interesting! Appearance is murky brown-reddish-dark with a small head but a lot of lacing. Flavour is incredibly sour with a dust, wood hints. Something also which I cant quite understand what is. Very acidic and vinegarish. Really thick and complex considering the abv. A interesting sour ale

Jerre (2895) - Waregem, BELGIUM - SEP 15, 2006
Taste this many times. Dark red color with light beige head. Touch of sugar in the nose and hints of dry fruits. Fine spicyness and faint touch of hops. Taste is round light sweet. Duchesse is better.

MiP (14442) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - AUG 30, 2006
Bottle, 5.4%. Sour and sweet aroma, this is clearly an oud bruin. Sparkling, clear brown colour. Stable light brown head. The flavour is very acidic for the style, almost vinegary, which suits it very nicely. It has a little sweetness, but without cancelling out the acidity. I detect a slightly roasted flavour behind the acidity. This is what I feel an oud bruin should be.

bu11zeye (12150) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - AUG 25, 2006
UPDATED: OCT 17, 2011 (Bottle, best before 06-06-07) Pours a dark red body with an average beige head. Aroma of cocoa, brett sourness, port, vinous, cherry, and dustiness. Flavors of sour cherries, caramel, and vinous. Some bottles are occasionally off with some vinegar flavors.

Skinnyviking (7744) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - APR 29, 2006
Bottle. White lasting head. Clear dark red body Vinegar aroma. Rootbeer / goose berry fkavor. This is not my taste of a beer but as is it is so much different from what I have tasted so far I’ll give it a couple of extra points in my overall judgement. Not tad at all as we would say in my "home country".

duff (5484) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - APR 24, 2006
Bottle@Bier Circus, Brussels. Nose, almost balsamic aroma, with some acidic cherryish type aromas, woody. The flavour come through in the flavour. The mouthfeel is very well balanced and seems to hit the exact spot between sweet and sour. Bloody, with some tomatos acidity. Balsamic. Very nice.

I love this sour ale, refreshing, complex and just in perfect balance with it’s sour side...
