Very dark, opaque brown/ruby, with a thin cap of off-white head. Lacing was very wet. Aroma is very tart and sugary with hints of cherry, lemon zest, grapefruit, caramel and red wine. The taste is like a lemon warhead. Very tart and dry with a lot of caramel, cherry and red wine. The finish was very dry and became eve more tart as it lingered.

2014 edition, 8% ABV. Bottle (1 pint) from Vinmonopolet, Oslo. Lovely rusty/mahogany colour, slightly hazy. Finger-thick light beige, cracking, rapidly diminishing head. Aroma of sour cherries, aged vinegar, red wine, oak, caramel, tobacco. Medium body, soft carbonation. Taste has moderate vinegary acidity upfront; a fruity, well-balanced middle; and a fairly brutally tart finish, though pleasantly mellowed by the barrel-ageing.

An Oude to Rodenbach- bottled aged for about 2 yrs - pours opaque, mahogany brown, khaki head that recedes. Nose is classic Flemish red. Oak, lactic acid, leather and dark fruits. Woodsy, leather, vinous dark fruits and that acidic tart dryness you're looking for in a Flemish red. Long sour finish that resonates. Rodenbach of the west. Well done

Notes of oak and fermented fruit on the nose. On the palate, it is quite tart, but a nice sweetness comes in to balance things out. Refreshing.

Bottle. Mahogny ruby in color with a beige head. Red berries, tart fruityness, wooden oaky notes and vinegar in aroma. Nice, quite good vibes already from this one. In taste there’s even more oak and tart fruits, which have been vinagered for a while. Pleasant mouthfeel. Leather and fruity sweetness in the end.

Bottle shared with my dad. As I opened the bottle I got a big whift of the beer and damn was I exhited!Pour dark red brown with a beige foam that dissapears quickly. The nose is wonderful, excellent example of the style and reminds me of rodenbach vintage. Big notes of musky oak, lactic acid, vinegar, some sweetness, red berries and a bit of gooseberry as well. Flavour is awesome, starts off very sour then it gives way to oaky, red berries, sweet malts, vinegar, some funk. Not the biggest mouthfeel but overall it?s very balanced and super tasty.

Dark mahogany pour with a brown head. Aroma is sour, oak. Taste is sour, oaky, fruity. The sour is a little puckering (in a good way). Nice to see The Bruery beers locally finally. Welcome to the Illinois Valley.
