Not tasted in best condition. Not much head, amber hazy. sour, acetic, note of wood. No alcohol taste (for that strong beer I was amazed). A pleaseant wild ale but it’s a overrated/overpriced.

Fin (10076) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - APR 25, 2014
Bottle from Dranken Geers, Oostakker, Nr Gent, Belgie, Feb’ 2014 consumed at hone Thursday & Friday 24 & 25th April 2014 Wonderfully tart, I really wasn’t sure what to expect but really like this. Fruity with cherry then some soft oakiness, but with a big balsamic rush. Pours reddy/amber in colour a few bubbles dancing about but not the big head expected. I put one of those wine air sealer stoppers on this and it did the trick, still tastes great the following day. A6 A3 T8 P4 Ov15 3.6

gEUS (1637) - Linden, BELGIUM - APR 22, 2014
Draft at Moeder Lambic. Really impressed by this beer! Pours clear ligh amber with reddish hints, small fine bubbly head. Aromas of caramel and forest fruits. Full body with an intense sweet-sour profile but marvelously balanced. This beer makes one sip again immediately after the previous one. Very dangerous...

Little to no head. Soft carbonation. Ruby-brown, color of oude bruin. Tart smell, acetic. Definitely sour, taste of rotten wood, cherries, very fruity. I did not feel the 11%.

Leveejr (109) - Dallas, Texas, USA - APR 20, 2014
Nice copper pour. Smells of strong oak, tart cherries, and lemon. Taste is very acidic and a slight booziness which is to expected. Also has a nice oakiness. Overall a good beer but not as good as 2011 ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Fritz123 (1535) - Boca Raton, Florida, USA - APR 19, 2014
Draft at the Sybarite Pig in Boca Raton, FL. Served in a small long-stemmed snifter. Pours a beautiful reddish amber with a thin white head. Powerful aroma of tart cherries, red wine, slight vinegar, alcohol, and other sour fruits. The taste is very potent with defined cherries and other fruits. Actually not as tart as the aroma would suggest, but certainly it gets your attention. Somewhat of a dryness with a fruity aftertaste. Cherries and raspberries seem to dominate. Somewhat boozy but it didn’t seem like an 11%. Very good again indeed.

NikkTwist (2960) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 16, 2014
Draftcat Strangelove?s in Philly. Very hazy copper pour. Large off-white head. Nice pungent sour. Middle dark fruits. Huge figs but also burnt oranges and big dark fruit. Nice full sour. Dark plummy goodness. Somewhat aggressive ABV but the flavors but still nice and complex. Slight rancidness at the end. Great brew in balance.

Theis (15152) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAR 30, 2014

JorisPPattyn (9766) - Ursel, BELGIUM - MAR 28, 2014
Small cream head over foxy red-amber beer, quasi still. Sweet spices and sour wood. Delicious balance, very vinous & fruity nose. Mildly wry, wood. Finish with lactic acid, but the general impression is again one of (red)fruit (on wood). Lipsmacking sourishness, over vinous (but complex and refined) sweetishness, yet dry as a whole. Hints at chocolate. Light to medium bodied, nearly absent carbonation, acidburn, slight slickness. One of Jerômes’ best. Unbelievable that such a good Flemish Oud Bruin hails from the Jura...

GenDV138 (6710) - Falls Church, Virginia, USA - MAR 13, 2014
Draft at ChurchKey poured into a tasting snifter. Pours an dark amber/brown color with little off-white head. Aromas of vinegar, tart fruit, red wine, subtle whiskey. Tasting notes of vinegar, tart fruit, oak, dark fruit, grapes, red wine, light funk, light whiskey. Medium body with a dry finish. Low carbonation. Really nice tart brew from BFM.
