Benzai (10983) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - DEC 13, 2011
From bottle, courtesy of Joes. Hazy opaque red color, no head. Smell sour, some warm cherries you sometimes get with Ice cream. Taste sour, unripe fruits. Pretty decent beer, very well balanced. Way better then expected. Medium to high carbo, but not offensive.

travita (4531) - Frisco, Texas, USA - DEC 15, 2013
Bottle. The look is an off white head, reddish brown in color, and clear. The smell is caramel, tart, fruits, cherries, deep, pie, and lacto. The taste is tangy, wheat, tart, fruits, acidic, and bracing.

Alengrin (3548) - BELGIUM - AUG 8, 2014
The first and experimental version of this "new old brown", at the time not yet bottled and sold as "Experimenteel Bier". Stable, yellowish white head, bronze colour with orangey hue. Sweet-sourish aroma one might expect from a good oud bruin, cassis, orange peel, passion fruit, liquorice, oak, sherry, hay; taste very fruity, sourish dry, apple, yoghurt-like lactic acid, caramel malts, woody, complex and dry finish. Very good take on this waning style and it is a good thing new breweries make new examples of it, as it is one of those uniquely Belgian, complex and historically valuable beer styles.

tderoeck (6612) - Gent, BELGIUM - AUG 15, 2011
14/08/2011 on tap @ Internationaal Streekbierenfestival Zwevegem (2011-387)

Note: the brewer calls this an experimental beer, as it is their first try for a Vlaams Oud Bruin. Possibly this beer will change in the future.

Bit cloudy copper red to brown beer, aery off-white smal head, unstable and non adhesive. Dissipates quite quickly. Aroma: fruity, sour cherries, wood, little sweet, some yoghurt (lactobacillus). Taste: sour but fruity start, lemony, raspberries, red currants. Aftertaste: lemon, raspberries, butter milk. The more you drink of it, the more complex flavours you are able to detect. This beer needs some balancing, but it’s already promising. Can’t wait till they make a blend with a 2 year old sour, instead of a one year old.

GT2 (9410) - Oceanside, California, USA - APR 23, 2012
375mL thanks to Travlr. Pours muddy rouge with a larger, fizzing, beige head. Larger lace for style. Nose is red wine vinous with heavy mustiness and cobwebby funk. Some dried meat and thanksgiving holiday spices. Strange. Nice though. Taste is tangy, acetic heat, lots of citric acid and paper. Mouth watering. Longer, interesting finish with white wine vinegar. Not too bad. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
