Koelschtrinker (20395) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - JUL 4, 2011
Leichter Karamellgeruch, säuerlich. Malziger Antrunk, mittelstark mit leicht säuerlichen Aspekten. Schnell wird das Bier stärker, das Malz wird aromatischer, es herrscht eine angenehme Harmonie zwischen Malz und Säuerlichkeit. Zum Ende hin wird as Bier weiter kräftiger und röstiger, die Säuerlichkeit schafft es hier nicht mehr wie in vorigen Teilen das Malz zu übertrumpfen. Leicht schokoladig werdend, getreidig, vollmundig. Gute Hinleitung zu einem kraftvolen und leckeren Bier.

33cl bottle picked up at the brewery on the day before the open doors. pours a lightly carbonated medium-brown. aroma is ginger, spice, some caramel and sour fruit. body is light/medium, flavor is a malty complexity up front that fades into a mildly sour finish that has a bit of residual sugar but not too much. more caramel in the flavor, joined by cherries, tart and inviting. this is really, really good, especially for the 5.2%, and I’m sort of upset with myself for not sticking around Heule the next day.

Red-brown beer with a beige head that disappears after a few moments. Very lactic aroma when I opened the bottle, but less outspoking after a few moments. Lactic flavor with a spicy, roasted ending. The aftertaste reminds me a bit of rauchbeer. SHIG (4962) - Wasilla, Alaska, USA - OCT 14, 2007
Bottle: Poured a dark chocolate color brown with a bubbly head. Old very lucent aroma musty and malt. The taste has that burnt rich sour malt but also leaves a tingle on the tongue and finishes sweet. Talked to the brewers at Bier Happenings fest in Zottemgen and they said this will not be brewed again. I recomment grabbing a 75cl bottle when you see it. oberabcbbsok (692) - Hoboken, BELGIUM - OCT 14, 2007

Red-brown hazy beer; disappearing beige head. Very nice lactic acid nose, bit lemony, obvious wood. Very dry in the mouth, lactic acid is there, but gets overwhelmed by a more stout-like, roasted taste, unusual in Oud Bruin. Finish is a bit wild yeast-like. Thinned by the acids, but not empty. A bit more lactic acid in the taste, as well as some sweet malts would make it more classical Oud Bruin. In the mean time, it’s quite good on its own. Certainly one of their better tries.

in Heule. Reddish brown with a beige head. Aroma of oak, some brett, a bit of malt and caramel. Sour flavor with wood, a bit of sweet malt and roasted notes. Medium-bodied. Very nice.
Bottle, thanks to Jerre for giving me one!
Hazy, brown body. Lightly brown head. Sour, fruity aroma of esters, flowers, wood, lactic acids, ... Not totally well balanced, there is a weird note inside it. Moderately bitter, lightly sour flavour of malts and lactic acids. Balance of the flavour isn’t fully perfect, the same awkwardiness is present. Still it is very nice.
