What a nice surprise. Much darker then first anticipated. With a hint of sweetness. Lovely to sip on.

ALLOVATE (2992) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - SEP 29, 2016
Tried this one back in September 2013, and I must admit I remember enjoying it quite a lot.
Radiant mahogany body with a big and lasting, rocky beige foam that laces well. Nose is plump and thick and displays savoury fruit mince, tart berries, madeira, oak and choc toffee. Tart with a juicy, dark berry sweetness to the front. Well rounded with a lightly husky malt and stale hop roughage late giving it a soft to moderate bitterness. Woody, dry and tart finish with a vinous astringency. Lasting carob and Shiraz flavour lingers long on the tongue. Quite lively on the palate but with a firmness that gives it more body and presence. Overall balanced between sweet and tart, and medial on complexity. Drinks superbly for an Oud Bruin. Enjoyable!! (75cL, BB 04/10/14)

seuinoz (255) - Glen Ellyn, Illinois, USA - SEP 21, 2016
Oak in the aroma with some sweet candy. Dark ruby red in color with a quick dissipating head. Some oak and sour and a little watered down in the taste. Doesnt sit well on the palate. Overall impression is not good.

Marko (5553) - Split / Zagreb, CROATIA - SEP 15, 2016
Harats Zagreb, bottle. Misty brown-red body with a slightly off white head. Light off white head. Very light tart and fruity notes in the aroma. Taste... eh, grape juice, maltiness, medium carbonation, actually more on the sweet side. Not terrible, but quite basic and for "beginners". The "faro" among the Flanders Reds.

Ysok02 (1468) - Mons, BELGIUM - SEP 13, 2016
Robe brune, fine mousse. Nez typ mais peu complexe, cerise acidule, bois, lgre note balsamique. Bouche lattaque fruite, fine acidit mais un manque de tension et de complexit pour ce type de produit. Basique et sans grand intret

Flaska frn Saveur Bier. Alldeles fr stt men s gott. Smak och doft av rda vinbr, krsbr, plommon, ektr med toner av karamell, russin och jord. Fruktig, stor stma, viss syrlighet, bra balans, fin beska. Gott!
