Trappist1 (524) - Diest, BELGIUM - OCT 21, 2014
50cl Bottle - - - Gushing Alert - - - Dark brown color with a huge brown head. Nose: wild yeast, sour, some cherries, dark malts, chocolate, raisins, dark fruit, orange, spicy feeling, cuberdons. Oh this little baby has just a great complex nose! Taste: Cherries, dark to even slightly roasted. more cherries, but still very well balanced. Fruity character, dessert oranges, alcohol pepperness. Initially sour in the taste, some nice to even great sourness. but, this is corrected quickly, gains on body and finish. Wow, jusst a great "oud bruin"... really really nice... say no more.... One question left: how would this age ?

oliodnb (331) - ITALY - SEP 12, 2014
50cl bottle from Ale&Hop in Barcelona. Pours dark reddish brown with a creamy off white head. Smell has a distinct sweet sour character with yeast, red fruits, wine and a light metallic note. The sweetness seems to be more evident in the first few minutes the bottle was opened. Taste is mildly acidic with the wine note from the Bourgogne very noticeable along some fruity flavors (cherries, plums). High carbonation, no hops. Very good.

Beerconnaiseur (96) - BELGIUM - AUG 30, 2014
Explosive opening - if this was an intentional hint to the war... , gushes all over. Murky dark brown, vinous but leans more to soft full than uniformly sour. Malt, candi syrup, oak. A tad too carbonated, which explains the fountain opening. Lovely old brown though!
