COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This Adriaen Brouwer, which is re-fermented in the bottle, is surprisingly complex. The nose of this Oudenaarde Brown beer features malt, caramel and dry fruit, with the merest hint of acidity. The finish is bitter-sweet, and the alcohol adds a warm glow. A balanced beer with a full mouth-feel. Could the painter and bon vivant Adriaen Brouwer have wished for anything more?

Derek881 (1270) - Denver, Colorado, USA - SEP 10, 2012
Poured the beer from a large bottle into a trappist-style glass to drink. The appearance was a mostly-cloudy dirty brown color with a slight deep amber hue and an average-sized foamy and creamy off-white head with modest retention, good lacing, and light cling. Its aroma featured dark fruits, including raisins and prunes, and lighter floral and earthy notes, along with a touch of caramel. The taste had a slightly sweet earthy-floral effect with a touch of sour grain and some light caramel malt, but was under-developed overall. Its body had low-to-average carbonation and fizz with a somewhat flat and wet mouthfeel with low density.

Pours hazy dark brown with a lasting beige head that leaves lacing. The aroma contains roasted malt, dark fruit, licorice, caramel and spices. It tastes medium sweet and medium to light bitter. Lively carbonation (a bit too much), medium long aftertaste, oily texture and alcoholic. Very fine.

KoNrRiI (1445) - rhus, DENMARK - JUN 12, 2016
0.33 bottle.A semi-hazy, dark crimson color and small, off-white head leaving no lacing. The aroma is made up of dark malts and not much more. A sweet taste of dark malts, yeasts, and some sugar. A medium body, a slick texture, and a lively to fizzy carbonation. Finish is alright, nothing special about it. Overall the beer could be much better - its carbonation level is a big blunder.
