scirtes (172) - POLAND - AUG 18, 2015
Bottle, bottled 09/2014. Pours dark brown-ruby-coloured, with beige (or even brownish) head with poor retention. Complex and beautiful aromas of dark fruits, sourness, some roasted malts, dark bread. Taste is moderately sweet with contrasting sourness and bitter aftertaste, very vinous and tannin. Rather lively carbonated, full bodied. Excellent.

Saeglopur (1110) - Vienna Woods, AUSTRIA - AUG 17, 2015
330 ml 2011 vintage, bottled 09/2014, from Ammersin 5, Vienna.
Dark, redish-brown body, with a small, fizzy, dissipating, beige head.
Aroma of oak, red wine, overripe fruits, dried fruits, vanilla, sweet and sour berries, some leather.
Taste with a lot of oak, sour red wine, sour fruits, overripe fruits, leather, some vinegar.
Medium, a bit oily mouthfeel, with an average carbonation.
Finishes dry, wooden, acidic, sour fruity, leathery.

Very nice. The nose is really lovely, with a great balance between oak notes, sweetness and sourness. The taste is pretty much dominated by strong oak and sour vinous notes and therefore feels quite heavy. Characterful, but not among my favourite beer of this style.

bierenjoyer1 (80) - Illinois, USA - AUG 12, 2015
I picked up the 2011 Reservation at De Bier Tempel in Brussels. Great scent the barrel aging with cherry, red wine, a bit of sour. Pours pretty much black with a constant thin foam and viscous lacing. A full coat flavoring of Flemish Old Bruin with cherry, red wine, the wild turkey barrel aging, liquorice, fruits, & alcohol (hidden well). The palate is left tingling for more with a slight red wine finish. Overall, I am buying this beer again and I really had no idea what I was getting into. Awesome beer.

Ambro206 (273) - ITALY - AUG 11, 2015
Difficile bere birre di questa finezza e profondità. I gusti dei malti tostati e affumicati sono incredibimente bilanciati dalla liee acidità e dalle note di legno. Bevuta sempre equilibrata, carbonatazione bassa e perfetta. Nessun difetto.

ciocanelu (176) - Timisoara, ROMANIA - AUG 10, 2015
Dark brown color with minimal head. Intense dark fruit aroma. Taste is also following the nose with the dark fruit component and a balsamic vinegar sourness. Very complex beer.

karpik (258) - Sosnowiec, POLAND - AUG 7, 2015
2011 Vintage. Aroma of cherries, red wine, barnyard, hay. Pours dark ruby with nice white head. Taste is very good balanced between wine, fruitiness and tartness. Overall lovely beer.

dnicolaescu (1317) - Chișinău, MOLDOVA - AUG 6, 2015
BOTTLE 33 CL. Vintage 2011. at 8% abv. Dark ruby, almost black. Dark short-lived frothy head. Thea aroma is rich dried sour cherries, vinous and acetic, stale marc. The taste is not that bright and young, but rather restrained and mature - a balance between acetic, vinouse and dried cherry sweetness. The dry oaky finish is quite strong, followed by a light acetic byte. Very good.

vipinvelp (2881) - Velp, NETHERLANDS - AUG 6, 2015
Clear dark ruby red, almost black, short lasting tan foam head. Little sour aroma, hard to imagine this is an Oud Bruin. Decent taste, little sour, some apple tones, a nice beer afterall. (Mechelen 201508)
