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.

Bugrat (61) - Cph. V, DENMARK - APR 18, 2006
I love this sour ale, refreshing, complex and just in perfect balance with it’s sour side...

ThomasE (5174) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - APR 18, 2006
Chestnut colour with a small tan head. Malty aroma with fruity and nutty notes. Light fruity tart flavor with some caramel sweetness. Yeasty and dry finish to a quite fizzy beer.

Rastacouere (6161) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - APR 17, 2006
Clear, strongly carbonated copper. The head is beige, small, but lacing nitro-like, leaving traces for every sip to be remembered. Sweet and sour nose, fruity (grapes and cherries) and globally balanced. A pleasant balsamic aspect ensures high drinkability, paired with the quenching, really engaging carbonation that is quite active at first, but becomes foamier and givec the mouthfeel a creaminess that is most welcomed and makes you forget about the filtration. Taste remains fairly lasting and is pleasantly light, woody and gummy, leaving a slight sweet film that is balanced by the diplomatic tartness. Up to the brewery’s high standards, if not the most exciting oud bruin out there.

JorisPPattyn (8648) - Ursel, BELGIUM - APR 2, 2006
Beautiful red-brown colour, clear; medium brownish head. Typical Verhaeghe nose; vinous, woody, and sweet - in a saccharing way (no Karl, I’m NOT saying saccharine is used, it tastes as if...) and dark candi sugar. And a faint acetic acid in the background. Pretty much the same in the taste: sweet-sour, vinous, wood, lactic and acetic acid and an overlying sweetness that has an artificial character. Retronasal it’s very good, however, like a true and ripened oud-bruin. Tittilating, some acid-burn, and some dry-out effect. Typical Verhaeghe mix of the best and off-tastes.

bierkoning (11405) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - MAR 29, 2006
Milk, custard and caramel in the aroma. Pear juice. Touches of milky sourness. Thin, caramelly, grape sugar, pear drups. The sourness annoys a bit, seems artificial.

anders37 (20000) - Malmö, SWEDEN - MAR 29, 2006
Bottle. Dark reddish brown colour with a tan head. Weak acid aroma. Sweet sour flavor. A little thin, leaving you with a sweet aftertaste.

cathschlag (48) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 20, 2006
Belle apparence. Fines bulles. De couleur brun foncé. Nez vineux. On perçoit les cerises et le beurre (?). Attaque très puissante et surprenante. Finale sucrée.

tiggmtl (4545) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 15, 2006
Strong, tart, cherry fruitiness with some balsamic and sugary sweetness as well as butterscotch and vanilla in the aroma. Clear, dark, amber brown coloured body is topped by a finger of fine bubbled, fizzy, tan head that recedes rapidly to a partial cover and ring. Cherries and balsamic flavours are pleasantly tart with a fairly toasty, biscuity malt character, but there is an underlying buttery character and sweetness that is somewhat off-putting. Dry medium body is somewhat slick in texture with strong, hard bubbled carbonation that prickles the tongue. Snifter. Cellar temperature. Bottle (BB 18-01-07, Bièropholie, Feb-05).
