Flemish Oud Bruin, with lactobacillus, fermented in Bordeaux and whisky barrels, and afterwards blended. Not very sour , the bordeaux barrels really take center stage. Supremely sophisticated woody aged malt flavor. Mild milky to a whisky dense caramel malt base. Nice blend which gives a distinct more "serious" malt base from the whisky compared to many other Flemish oud bruins, as a consequence the body is more full and smooth.

Alex420 (48) - Rome, - NOV 25, 2009
Bott 75cl @ brasserie420 Light brown reddish color, longlasting foam. Light acetic aroma, some sweet fruit to it. Fruity tastes, peach, apricot, mildly sweet. Nice straitforward aceticnes, but not in your face! A great interpretation of this stile!

GothGargoyle (2587) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 24, 2015
Bottle 549 at In de Wildeman. Rusty red with a small pale head and some sediment. Aroma is cherry, red wine, malt vinegar, fig, quince, dates, dark fruits, touch of funk. Medium bodied, lightly sticky mouthfeel, low, soft carbonation, sweet and sour on the palate. Taste is cherry, quince, beaujolais, midget gems candies. Aroma and taste is slightly subdued, so possibly sone oxidation happening. Probably slipping past its prime.

Habanero (4771) - Tranbjerg, DENMARK, DENMARK - JUL 25, 2015
Bottled. Pours slightly hazy reddish amber. Aroma of funk, caramel, berries and some. Slightly sweet flavor that ends up dry and tart. Medium bodied, watery to oily texture and soft carbonation. A very nice Sour. 🌟🌟🌟

gEUS (1637) - Linden, BELGIUM - APR 10, 2015
750 ml bottle at home, 169 / 560. Cloudy medium brownish ruby. Aroma is red wine oak, gentle raisins and dates, roasted malts sour apple; it clearly has some age on it but it still drinkable as hell. Light body, lightly sour and sweet, moldy finish. taste is brown Sugar, sweet malts, and a hint of oak.

PotjeBier (3505) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - JAN 4, 2015
Old notes. On tap @ Bierkoning’s Molen tasting in 2008/2009, with Menno pouring himself. Red-brown color. Aroma’s: not quite lactic acid, but fruity sourness instead (apples?), old, woody, roasted/stout-ish. Flavor is moderate sour with some malty sweetness. Light body. Fairly dry, presumably from the tannines. Rather complex, not entirely in the Flemish sour brown tradition, but interesting enough.

Alengrin (5545) - BELGIUM - SEP 12, 2014
De Molen’s take on oud bruin, with thinnish, quickly dissolving head and deep copperish brown colour. Aroma of caramel, sour apples, peaches, wine vinegar, passion fruit, redcurrant, medium dry sherry. Estery fruitiness in the mouth, fresh, lightly sweetish, thinnish mouthfeel and even a bit watery finish, light sourish, could have been better balanced. One of the lesser beers I had from this brewery so far, but still more than decent.

riversideAK (6261) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - MAR 2, 2013
Soft cherry balsamic and wood brown sugar on nosr. Pours amber thin gead nice clarity. Tangy oxidized wood and brown sugar. Tangy but light. Interesting. Slightly oxidized.

Martinus (4685) - Baarle-Nassau, NETHERLANDS - FEB 26, 2013
Murky brown colour, light white head. Aroma of yoghurt, red wine, wood and over-ripe fruits. Quite sweet, light sour flavour, red wine and fruity tones. Finish light astringent, red wine and yoghurt.
Quite interesting.

Countbeer (6591) - Best of E-Town mit 2 Brauhausen, NETHERLANDS - FEB 20, 2013
Bottle @ Kiss The Kitchen Floor or better known as ZZT VI (2013): kindly shared by Joes, thanks! Bottle no. 286/560: Light hazy cloudy brown colored beer with a ruby tint when held in a light source. No head, not even bubbles. The aroma has a lot of overripe fruit, some yeast, hint of sugars. The flavours also have some fruit tones but nothing overripe. There’s also hints of bay leaf, yeast, bread, hint of rye, light light sour and malts. Bumit light overall but not bad. The aftertaste is light, barley malts, brown sugars, yeast... Thin and quickly disappearing. No carbo, watery mouthfeel, medium body and a watery texture. Not bad, but hoped for more.

Zzt bottle. Lightly sour beer with a very clean palate and aftertaste. Some fruits, raisins and prunes.
