Alengrin (2928) - BELGIUM - JAN 14, 2015
Verhaeghe’s most reputed beer, a classic in the ’oud bruin’ style, or more accurately ’Vlaams rood’. Deep mahogany colour under a creamy, pale beige head; very estery nose, passion fruit, cherry, pear, cider, red wine, sour cream; sweet onset (this is clearly sweetened with candi sugar), very fruity, vinous, with a tartness which dries a bit and increases towards the finish, caramelly malt base, vinous and somewhat woody, long sour-sweet finish. Nice, but an unsweetened version would prove more interesting. I’ll take Vichtenaar in the meantime.

rouhlas (569) - GREECE - JAN 12, 2015
750ml bottle at the Beerstore, Thessaloniki. Dark red color with small almost no head. Wineous, fruity aroma, malty too. Sweet and light sour taste. Medium oily body with soft carbonation.

Koskela (363) - Marysville, California, USA - JAN 10, 2015
A very sweet and malty aroma with a hint of tartness come from this deep ruby red brew with a light brown head. Tart with a bit of underlying sweetness come with this medium bodied brew with big carb bubbles.

cargo150 (918) - Quebec City, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 9, 2015
Couleur ambré légèrement voilée avec un très grand col mousseux blanc explosif. Aromes de caramel, fruits rouges sures, bois. Carbonatation très élevé ce qui vien détruire le gout de cette bière. Correct tout de meme mais je suis un peu décu... Je m’attendais a plus.

Very bright plum and cherry, tart, medium palate, lots of lacing and slightly syrupy but not too thick. Pretty good. Menu description says 6% ABV, I find it hard to believe, feels more intense. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Première expérience de Oud Bruin. Arôme distincte de bière sauvage des Flandres. Bel équilibre entre le surette et le sucré. A découvrir!!

mastalde (1) - SWITZERLAND - JAN 7, 2015 does not count
Pours dark red with a white head which quickly vanishes, still fizzy. Fruity aroma, quite sour and sweet. Soft flavor, nice acidity, reminds me a lot of geuze, but much more mature, almost vinuous. Slightly bitter aftertaste with malty notes, demanding for more!

Pours a cherry-colored amber with thin tan head. Aroma is sweet and tart with yeasty effervescence. Taste is tart and sweet with malty rich cranberry and wild cherry flavors. There is an underlying pinot noir essence as well that adds to the rich fruity tartness of this beer.
