Shark_Pants (578) - AUSTRALIA - JUN 13, 2016
UPDATED: JUN 13, 2016 2011 vintage. Deep dark brown with small ruby highlights and small tan head. Lots of balsamic and apple cider vinegar in the aroma, which also follow through to dominate the taste as well, with some chocolate, vinous notes and a little cola. Very nice balance between tart sourness and smooth sweetness. Light bodied, acidic and refreshing. Fantastic oud bruin.

330ml bottle served in a snifter glass. Pours a dark amber to brow color forming a small thin and solid beige head with medium to low retention that leaves some thin spotty lacings in the glass. Sour and fruity nose. Strong notes of apple vinegar, oak and caramel malts. Metallic hints. Grassy hops. Taste follows the nose: Fruity and acid. Strong notes of apple vinegar, candi Sugar. Grassy hops, medium hops bitterness. Medium body. Low carbonation. Molasses sensation. Sour vinegar in the aftertaste. Less aggressive than the standard version. Great drinkability. Excellent Flanders Ale. Expected De Struise quality.

Swaroga (1955) - Brussels, BELGIUM - APR 17, 2016
Complex fruity and chocolate aroma. Medium thick and delicately carbonated. Silky mouth feel. Well rounded and complex taste. Medium sweet with good sourness but balanced enough not to dominate. Still can even be called refreshing.

Maarten1993 (849) - Nijmegen, NETHERLANDS - APR 16, 2016
Drank with Bram while watching House of Cards 14-4-2016. Very complex beer. Every sip is a discovery. Sour is still not my thing. But this one was quite good. Hints of cinnamon, sometimes bitter, very rich.. only sometimes a bit unpleasant as well.

GlasgowTAD (1291) - Glasgow, SCOTLAND - APR 13, 2016
Bottle received as an extra thanks to Berntholer! Pours deep burgundy red with a lively light-brown head which soon dissipates. Aroma is sour cherries, red grapes and cinnamon. Taste is sour cherry tart, low acidity (which integrates well), cinnamon, slight red berry sweet, slightly vinegar-ish notes. Extremely well balanced and well executed, no astringency around.

HonkeyBra (4018) - Lemont, Illinois, USA - APR 6, 2016
Bottle from Secret Santa. Thanks man! Pours a dark reddish brown with a small, sparse, tan head. Aroma of balsamic vinegar and oak notes. Flavor is more tart berries with some vinegar and booze notes. This isnt exactly up my alley.
