Nice looking red-brown beer. Taste far too sweet/fruity(cherry) to my opinion. From dubbel moving towards kriek.

Aroma: Acetic vinegar notes, cherryish and fruity with some malty, chocalatey overtones and brett character. Oaky. Complex. Appearance: Long lasting head, burgundy, clarity good. Nice. Hints of brown but more of a dark red. Flavor: Very complex. Sweetish candy notes with a lactic sourness and fruity finish. Oaky tannins are very prominent and hints of vanilla also from the oak. Cherry and fruity flavors, some sherry. Lovely. Palate: Not harsh at all, but a little sweet. It’s sweet and sour, but I would prefer more sourness. Tastes like it is sweetened like a Lindemans. Overall: Excellent beer. Very complex, very drinkable, nicely balanced.

Pours a nice color, like a red wine with hints of brown. In the aroma I detected vinegar/vinaigrette with cherry hints. The taste was very sweet and fruity with hints of vinegar. Too sweet for me and I am also not big on the vinegar taste.

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

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

Un estilo que nunca entenderé... a pesar de que no me gustó nada, admito que está muy bien hecha y a los amantes del vino les puede atraer o parecer curiosa. A mí... no.

PaulHegedus (85) - British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 12, 2010
Pours a brownish red with a wonderful, fluffy, aromatic head. The aroma is full of fruit: dark grapes, dates, figs, apple, some cherry. Body is medium, smooth, a bit syrupy. The flavour is sour initially with a whole bunch of golden delicious apple, fig, cherry, wood in the finish.

Pours red brown with foamy head. Smells of tart cherry. Cranberry taste with very slight oak finish. Crisp! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle. Near room temp. Rich brown red color, good carbonation, some white head and lacing. Great sweet and sour balsamic taste and palate, full bodied but light and crisp due to the good fizz. Maybe a bit too sweet. Very nice Flanders red.

0,25 bottle. Dark. Taste is of aples and sour. Wine-like. Aroma sour and of alcohol. Great stuff!
