Quite sour taste, it smells like white cheese, which isn't a recommendation.

75 cl bottle. Pours beautifully red brown with an off-white creamy head that lasts very long and laces very good. Smells very sweet with hints of sour, caramel, fruit,… The taste is a great balance between sweet and sour. Sometimes the sweetness dominates, sometimes the sour accent dominators. Great beer.

great brown-reddish body, clear. creamy foam. aroma is sour, somewhat reminiscent of fizzy drinks. taste is evidently sour, yet with obvious hints of malt sweetness. very good, refreshing, almost champagne-like.

Rich brown, nice beige head with good lacing. Aroma is woody and young wine. Tastes fruity and then mellows to a tangy light hoppy aftertaste. Lightly carbonated. A treat

Tastes very sour and fruity, aroma’s of cherries and apples. I think my girlfriend would like it more than I do.

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

Bottle. A typical belgium dark beer, not bad but at the same time not special. Not very complex with a bit artificial flavour.

Everything good except its sour, taste crisp like wine & apple cider. Smell sweet seeing oak barrel. But sour is not something for me

UPDATED: SEP 23, 2004 Brown/red in color with a sour, vinegary aroma. Fruity and sour. Very unusual, but not unpleasant. Short, flat, quick-to-dissipate brownish head. The first sip was the toughest, as my tongue and brain take in the shock of such a strange flavored beer. After several more sips, the taste became more understandable, and more flavors became apparent....cherries, tiny bits of chocolate malt. Enjoyable, if unusual. To quote MIchael Jackson "Some drinkers could never learn to enjoy....sour specialties....any more than they could acquire a taste for a smelly cheese...in [that] case, the loss would be theirs."

Like sour candy and gumballs, this beer starts out with a twang and is all sugar at the finish. The color is a very nice deep red, the aroma funky, the bottle, the beer, come off like the old world works of art they are.
