An excellent sour. Aroma is hints at the tartness. Smells of cherries and oak. Taste is sweet fruit initially and then the acetic tartness moves in. Highly carbonated and light bodied this is a very good sour beer. I don’t get as much oak in the taste as other reviewers though.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Shows the staining of copper bronze tones with a classic red Flemish such as Rodenbach. A head of pale cream foam, creamy, sticky, good stability and burgundy dim and hazy color.
Aroma is pleasant despite the strong aroma of apple cider vinegar and balsamic. Surge bread, some beans, caramel, passion fruit, apple, honey, vanilla, brown sugar, wood notes, dried fruit.
Medium body and medium to high carbonation.
In taste brings a sparkling vivacity in a battle, the sweetness of sugar, honey like it was almost a sweet and fierce relentless acidity of vinegar creating a sour grape dryness with wood tannins in the background to give a distinctive finish. This battle between the sweet and the sour closes harmoniously despite the sweetness be slightly higher.
We can note nuts, caramel, brown sugar, red wine, raisins, wood, balsamic notes to exemplify.
The finish is long, sour and fruity, very good drinkability.
Overall I found the wonderful and very authentic beer. A traditional example of Bruin oud style.

Bottle shared. Pours a medium brown color with off white head. The aroma is slot of things from sour funk to dark red cherries to Apple cider vinegar. The flavor is slit of dark cherry tartness with the underscoring of funk. Nicely blended. I get mild notes of the oak on the end. Overall a nice Flemish sour.

Pours pretty amber brown with really lively head. Considerably sweeter and less sour than I was expecting, but both were a pleasant surprise.

Flaska från Bier Tempel Bryssel. Mörkt rubinröd vätska. Doftar syrliga bär och ekfat. I smaken återkommer ekfaten och färska bär. Där finns även en tråkig sötma.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Poured from a bottle a hazy reed tinged brown. The aroma would attract any fruit fly from 1007 miles around; sour, fruity. I love the sour, but was hoping for more beer flavors. Didn't really suit my palate, but was enjoyable enough.
