2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Deep brown color with a brown head. The taste is sweet and malty with notes of caramel, oranges and nuts. Has a light sourness on the palate, but could use a more complex bitter or sour pattern.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Fine tan head on a brown reddish body. Quite full and fruity aroma with tones of oranges and apricot. Nice and sweet! Flavor is very sweet fruity and sugary. Obvious notes of oranges. Little thin on the palate but all in all a nice and refreshing beer. Lacks a bit of sourness though.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
This beer has a red body - hue apperance and a fine light red scum collar. I have drunk the beer from the bottle and it had a low carbonic acid. The initial flavor taste is between sweet and light acid.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Chestnut with some red, little head. Aroma is very faintly of old, musty sour cherries, but not in an appetizing way. Flavor is bland, a little malty, faint hint of sourness. This beer never quite seems to realize it is even in the glass. Sad to say that I lugged this loser all the way back from Belgium. But hey, I bought it in a supermarket on a whim for the sole reason I had never heard of it. What could I expect?

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
The aroma is sweet malty with notes of grain and caramel. The color is brown and it has a fine light brown head though fast collapsing. The flavor is very sweet malty with strong caramel notes and a somewhat sour end. But not nearly as sour as I had hoped for taking the style into account. This is not a special beer in anyway but it is OK though.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Colour of Coca-Cola; head idem ditto, and not more stable. Nose starts with chalk, bit nutty, brown bread, ending in buttermilk. Very bready taste again, with a lactic aroma retronasal, sourish palate. Watery, thinnish texture. Very plain, unremarkable. doesn't even come near the real Oud Bruin style, or the old Anglo-Belge on which it is based. A dark, lactic lager.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
This one has virtually no head, it should be named more something like 'tafelbier'. The taste is ok, but too weak. Seems like I don't like beers like these.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Served pretty cold, which made the head die quickly. Dark ruby color. Tart aroma of cherries. Decent flemish sour.

May 2003 (BB 1998). Dark red-brown coloured, small head. Typical flemish sour ale aroma, sour and fruity, very good. Not as full-flavoured as i was hoping for. Very watery finish.
