3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

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.

2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Cloudy brown pouring with a large foamy head but the head dissipates rapidly. The aroma is stinky yeast and pleasant reminders of basements dampness and minerals. Right off the bat the beer is expectionally dry. Its taste is flat and yeasty and finishes very tart and sour.
