EddyBeer1 (1058) - Brussels, BELGIUM - OCT 18, 2013
Brune rougeâtre, effervescence fine et légère, mousse beige. Une vieille brune assez bien maltée, surette, avec des fruits rouges mais un peu trop aqueuse.

prawlie (1499) - ENGLAND - AUG 26, 2013
33 cL bottle into a bowl shaped glass at Le Corbeau in Brussels. Very dark with plentiful bubbly head. Tastes sour, but also has a solid malt base, not too harsh. Light sour aroma. Actually quite refreshing. Decent ale.

Benzai (13678) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - JUL 11, 2013
Bottle @ home shared with Dutchdrebus. Clear dark red color, virtually no head. Smell and taste sourish, sourish fruits. Not a lot more there actually. Not bad, not very good. A decent flemish oud bruin I think, but not my kind of beer.

DutchDrebus (5562) - Oirschot, NETHERLANDS - JUL 11, 2013
Bottle @ benzai. Ruby colour with no head. Smells very sour, dusty, wood. Tastes sour, wood, old.. Way too much carbo, medium body.

JefVerstraete (2866) - Oosterzele, 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 (3489) - 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 (2071) - Gdańsk, POLAND - 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 (1463) - Culemborg, 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 (906) - 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 (7682) - 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)
