JefVerstraete (1142) - BELGIUM - JUL 7, 2013
Dark red/brown, white head. Good and refreshing beer. Well balanced between sweet (maybe a little bit too sweet), sour and bitter. Fruity aroma, wood, balsamico vinegar, and some bitterness. Good example of the style.

RexTalionis (2337) - FINLAND - MAY 27, 2013
Bottle 33 cl, BBE 25.01.2015. Pours dark brown in color with creamy tan head. Sour notes, a bit of vinegar and notes some wooden barrels in aroma. Sour in taste, some vinous notes and a bit of brown sugar sweetness too. Sadly a bit of iron appears in taste. Slightly earthy notes mixed with sweeter syrup and sour cherry-kind-of notes in finish.

Swaroga (1247) - Brussels, BELGIUM - MAY 9, 2013
33cl bottle. Dark red with medium, dirty head. Nose : tart, yeast, cooked cherries and other fruits. Sip : oily and smooth. Good carbonation. Sweet with strong cherry notes. A bit caramel makes it think of coca cola. Sour and cloying sweet.

thanatosti (866) - NETHERLANDS - MAY 5, 2013
33 cl. bottle @ Noa’s Brasserie, Koksijde. Pours brown with a beige head. Vinous aroma with some malts. Tastes like a less sour Rodenbach. I absolutely love the Flemish red-brown beers and this one is no exception. Great beer.

Staffan47 (856) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - MAY 2, 2013
Å helvete vilken snyting med balsamvinäger i doften. Smaken är ju inte sämre direkt. Balans med syran och frukten. Världsklass. På delirium

77ships (3540) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - APR 30, 2013
UPDATED: MAY 1, 2013 Never heard of this beer before, the brewery turns out to be Verhaeghe.
Pours a very dark brown with a ruby hue, descending very creamy white head with incredible lacing. Full 5 just for the lacing.
Nose is a bit hard to pick up on account of the beer being too cold, getting some syrup, chocolate & light liquorish here, candy & light red fruits.
Taste is very sweet, thick chocolate syrup, cacao, cheap chocolate, thick liquorish, hint Sirop de Liège, thick caramel and light red fruits & overripe fruit, hint cough syrup & some very sweet herbs.
Body is touch syrupy, fuller.
Very interesting, enjoyable and different but shocked to see this listed as an Oud Bruin on RB, honestly didn’t get any of the vinegar, sour fruits, whatever that other people are talking about. Maybe it is just me….
(25 cl. draft @ Delirium Tap House)

Grzesiek79 (3112) - Radom, POLAND - APR 27, 2013
Dobre. Uwielbiam ten styl. Kolebka regionalnej tradycji belgijskiej. Octowy i winny smak jak i zapach. chmielnego aromatu nie ma bo w tym gatunku to było by grzechem. Piekna bezowa i trwala piana czerwony odcien piwa. I ta lekka cierpkosc ze stosowna nuta slodyczy w tle. Debowy posmak takze jest.

Erasmus_ro (1263) - Alabama, USA - APR 20, 2013
Bottle. Pours a deep, dark, ruby red with a large, smooth, beige head. Aroma is sour with vinegar, light caramel, cherry candy. Taste is semi-sweet and quite sour. Taste is cherry, caramel, cherry candy, some vinegar as well. Delicious. Palate is smooth, quite full, not much carbonation. Superbly delicious.
