Bottle@Delirium, Brussels. I would have liked this a lot more if it had less vinegar, vinegar overload. Woody and balsamic flemish sour, without the balance of tthe better ones. This was very interesting though. Sweet and sour.

Pours to a lightly murky reddish-brown body with a creamy white head. The aroma is balsamic vinegar and olive oil that’s been soaked up in french bread. The flavor is similar to the aroma. Apples, caramel apple dip, balsamic vinegar, olive oil, french bread. Very unique. The palate is vinegar, nice tartness, medium bodied, easy drinking.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle shared by Jason. Clear brown body under a small foamy white head. Funky, musty aroma. Port, wet crystal malt, and some vinegar - interesting! Pretty similar flavor. Starts with a sharp apple cider leading to sweet floral appleness. Sweet ’n sour acid and pale malt finish. Medium mouthfeel.

Thanks SecretSanta! Attractive amber color. Thick off-white head that fades fast into a soapy topping. Aroma is sour cherry sweet bread... a little bit of grapey acetic acid with some sulfur, mold, and urine. Some biting fizziness. Its kind of sweet, with enough acid to back it up. Some stale moldy carbonation, balsamic vinegar, sweet bread... a little rough around the edges, but its pretty good. To me, along the lines of a Rodenbach (well, duh because its a sour), but taken down a notch with slight thinness and very slight cardboard.

clear reddish-amber colour with a persistant little head; aroma of sour red fruits, vinegar and cheese; high initial sweetness fortunately soon followed by a pleasant and robust sourness; the finish is fruity and vinous with more sourish touches - nice to have a Vlaams oud bruin again !

Pour is hazed amber with a thin off white head...smell is as expected, cherry, oak, sour, and something astringent...taste is the same, but thin and weak...

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Cloudy amber colour with a slim off-white head. Aroma is sour, fruity and woody. Quite a nice sour taste with some complexity behind it; fruity, malty, wood, tart, spicey. Medium bodied, high carbonation. It walks a fine line - but I like it a lot.
