Drinking from a 33 cl bottle.
Very old bottle. The beer didn’t survive the hand of time. To bad. KansaiBeerLvrs (5241) - Kyoto, JAPAN - AUG 15, 2015
Aarschotse bruine tielemans 5% 1980 - 35 years old! At Kulminator. But still with a branded glass and a clear deep amber brown with some head but fairly minimal. The nose is sweet malty caramel fudge. Thick full smooth body. The taste is tart sour brown caramel maltiness. Actually surprisingly refreshing. Not sure what it was like to start but now it’s an acidic tart light beer. Yum.

Mostly clear brown colour, no head. Aroma of caramel, raisins, dusty. Sweet flavour, caramel, cola. Sweet finish, caramel, cheap sherry wine. Very old, BBF 2002. Interesting but it didn’t keep up well (while some Oud Bruin beers do keep up quite nicely).

(From 25cL bottle @ Kulminator. Combined purchase)
33cl bottle@Cafe Belge, Grote Markt Leuven 08/2014. Label: "Extra sour", a hollow caveat... Light, aquateous dubbel-like pour with a nose of a malt-infused, diluted Rodenbach. Very slight wood astringency cannot balance out the sticky, unclean palate, transporting the dubbel light tastes that are there: some dark fruit juice, malt sugars. - Reminiscent of Adriaen Brouwer Bruyn, also a too timid Oud Bruin verging towards the NL version of the style. kraddel (8602) - Antwerp, BELGIUM - SEP 2, 2014
Bottle ( brewed at biertoren ) at julminator .
Pours mudfy , clear brown . no real head . Smell is dusty and sweet .
taste is sharp & sweet , some nuts , some faded chocolate . Easy drinkable , bit sweet ( port aspects ) watery mouthfeel and aftertaste , nut 13 y old and 4 abv would expect a way weaker taste .

Combined purchase by the group. 25 cl. bottle BBF 12/2002 @ Kulminator sampled. Murky cola brown beer that has clearly already fallen apart. Taste is pure oxidation, watery bad / fake cola syrup in the nose mixed with iron. Taste is totally shot as well, watery mixed stale old fake cola, completely oxidized, bad sugar water. Carbonation is basically gone. Unsurprisingly totally dead. I doubt that it was ever stellar even when still alive. Apparently this was an Oud Bruin, interesting, well whatever it was I think that it is safe to say that it is gone now. Bloekie (210) - BELGIUM - SEP 7, 2009
Aged bottle from 1980, brewed by Tielemans, tasted at the Kulminator, Antwerp.
Clear amber, small head, aroma is sour, taste of sour Palm-beer. Huge succes! Ungstrup (38139) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - MAR 5, 2006
A hazy orange beer with an off-white head. The aroma is primarily of oranges, slightly over ripe, combined with light metal notes, and so is the flavor, while the body is a bit thin. Jeppe (2631) - Brooklyn, Alabama, USA - JAN 27, 2006
Vintage bottle (old, dirty with a rusty cap) courtesy of Joris - thanks!!duff (5484) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - NOV 2, 2005
Thin white head that lasts well, hazy orange golden body. Fruit, berry and wet woody aroma with a sourish edge - rather old and fusty. Extremely dry and woody flavor probably helped by the age - with a fresh sourness to back the dryness up. Quite thin and watery body. Definately over the top but still drinkable.
Bottle. Sweet stale caramel flavours, and slightly on the sticky side of the scale, ever so slight sourness. This tasted old/gone to me.
