Clear dark brown beer, small aery light beige head, unstable, bit adhesive. Aroma: bit sour, yoghurt, raspberries, bit sweet, raspberry jam. MF: ok carbon, light body. Taste: bit sweet, sour tangy touch, pretty fruity, lemon juice, bitter, green banana. Aftertaste: sweet sugary touch, raspberries, bitter ending, bit metallic.
(bottle) pours a clear dark ruby colour with a frothy off-white head. aroma of citrus fruits, custard, caramel and strawberries, slightly earthy with a hint of lactic acid. flavour is mostly the same, quite fruity, with hints of barnyard, milk chocolate, cookie dough, grain and a minerally finish. light-bodied with average carbonation. quite good for sixty cents a bottle. sayravai (4711) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUN 5, 2011
(Bottled, BBE 12/2011) Very nice blood-red color with a smallish, but firm and lasting, tanned head. Tart, vinegary aroma with some caramely-roasted maltiness. Flavor is mildly roasty, mildly vinegary, only slightly sugary-sweet. Almost medium body, foamy CO2. Normally I’m not such a big fan of Oud Bruins, but this is quite nicely balanced (sweetness & tartness) and refreshing. 4264 jtclockwork (17654) - , New Jersey, USA - MAR 30, 2011
Bottle. Pours prune almost black. Tan head. Nose of muted cider vinegar and old socks. Taste is watered down vinegar. Soda like carbonation.

Cheesy sock, iron filings, red wine aroma....turning to sticky Chinese sauce, cinnamon, chip shop batter. Unique. Pours ruby with audible fizz, forming a stable beige collar. More of that deep fried, sticky Chinese flavour; syrupy oak with a tingle of cinnamon-dusted plain yoghurt, and rust, and cereal boxes. Sugared on the lips like a sticky plum sauce. I like a beer that challenges my descriptors, and this is doing just that. Fair play. Abio (1868) - BERMUDA - SEP 22, 2010
Sour-sweet smell, wood, fruits, milk, liquor. Probably not my beer... Looks are ok brown with a medium had, but it colapses to soon. Just a small head stays. Should get 2.5... Taste is sour fruits, some wood. I know sour ale is not my stuff, but it’s better drinkeable then expected. The sourness is not to overwhelming. In fact, besides it’s a bit to much mouthfeel like a soda and it’s even pretty sweet, it’s drinkeable. But this type of beer won’t be my favorite to soon. douglas88 (9797) - Portland, Oregon, USA - SEP 3, 2010
25 cl bottle. Pours a dark red-brown color with a medium white head. The aroma is sour vinegar, caramel malts. A slightly sour flavor with lots of sweet sugary caramel brown malts. OK. harrisoni (19549) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - AUG 22, 2010
