Leighton (18526) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 9, 2012
Bottle at Chriso’s Pre-GBBF Shindig, 2012. Pours cloudy amber with a medium, foamy head, some sediment. Tangy wood and leaves in the nose. Sour flavor, light sweetness, more wood and leaves. Light to medium bodied with fine to average carbonation. Dry finish, tangy, with leather and berries. Also, this beer gushed like crazy.

Scopey (12507) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 9, 2012
Bottle at Chriso’s Pre-GBBF Shindig, 2012. Mega-gusher! The beer actually hit the roof. It pours cloudy amber, with a thin white head. The nose is tangy, balsamic vinegar, raisin, prune, date and wood. The taste is tangy dark fruit, raisin, currant, prune, sharp Granny Smith apple, only a very light sourness and wood, with a dry finish. Medium body and fine carbonation. Decent beer, just a shame most of it was sprayed around the room.

JorisPPattyn (9471) - Ursel, BELGIUM - DEC 26, 2015
Glass of cream to light beige, ultradense & fine foam, stable, over small layer of dirty orange-brown, heavily carbonated beer. Wood, lactic acid, rainwater. Seriously hampered byt the ridiculous head. Wood, initial bitterness as from paintstripper or walnutpeel; lactic acid acidity underneath. Ironoxyde in the head. More lactic/diary features in the finish. Faint chocolate. Medium bodied, mild acidthinning, velvety texture not in the least thanks to the solid head. Seriously severe. If I may hazard an educated guess, a tad more hops than usual for an Oud Bruin?

KyotoLefty (9305) - Kyoto, JAPAN - SEP 8, 2013
Bottled at the Leiderkerke Beer Festival. Nose of cinnamon, coconut, chocolate, speculoos. Obviously greatly sweetened. Very muddy, murky brown with lace. Flavors of tangy fruit, a bit of vinegar, cinnamon and spice, ginger bread. Very sweet, with chocolate and speculoos. Not so good.
