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.
