Muggus69 (2047) - Yarram, Vic, AUSTRALIA - NOV 7, 2013
500 mL bottle bb 31112017 Pours a dense ruby brown body. Creamy tan lace sits atop. Aroma distinctly woody, red wine like; sour cherry, cocoa, charred oak, dark fruits, caramelised balsamic, with an underlying note of horsey Brett. Full body, low carbonation, a prickle of acidity towards the finish. More vinous character on the body; balsamic, cherry, bourbon, quite a twang to it. Finishes with a decidable bitterness and lingering Brett fruity funk. Bit all over the shop. Lacks the balance and smoothness of better Oude Bruins

ApisAles (1575) - Greenbelt, Maryland, USA - NOV 6, 2013
On Tap at Churchkey. Cola red/brown pour with a light tan head. Aroma is dark fruit, leather, funk, some light tartness. A hint of soy. Flavor is slightly sweet with a good sour kick and a great level of funk. The balance on this is excellent.

Tmoney99 (13344) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - NOV 4, 2013
Tap. Poured a cloudy brown color with an average frothy tan head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate to heavy sour malt and wood aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium sour & sweet flavor with a medium sweet & sour finish of moderate duration. This is a good beer.

DrSilverworm (9671) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - OCT 31, 2013
On tap at Dutch’s. Very dark brown / red color. Thin brown head. Plenty lace. Medium to bigger body. Smooth, crisp lighter carbonation. Full texture. Lightly slick body, but more dry in the finish. Nice vinous dark fruit notes, get a lot of that barrel, and a nice light bit of vanilla. Some chocolate, and nuttiness. Good tasrt taste, light sweet. Solid, full-bodied, barrel-aged sour. Enjoyable and complex.

b3shine (8054) - Indiana, USA - OCT 31, 2013
Draft to taster at Dutch’s. Looks good; a cloudy brown with foamy head somewhere between off-white and light beige. Smells solid; tart and funky with notes of cherry and Wild Turkey. Tastes like it smells with an average mouthfeel. I hate Wild Turkey, and it brings this beer down IMO.

ken1 (1704) - DENMARK - OCT 25, 2013
