Bottle Pours out a brown with some red topped with a small off white head. Aroma of sweetness some fruit and a little spice. Tast more of the sweetness and fruit. Not high on the sour. KimJohansen (10498) - Frederiksberg C, DENMARK - AUG 26, 2008
Dark brown with medium beige head. Sweet aroma with roasted malt, caramel and mild chocolate notes. Sweet flavor with roasted malt, mild sourish berries and wood. redlight (2325) - Orlando, Florida, USA - JUN 24, 2008
Clean aroma, hints of cherries and dark berries. Pours reddish brown with a dense off white head that doesn’t last long. Sweet malts caramelly, fruity, but trace hints of a sourness, very sugary. They need to up the old beer and lower the young in the blending. I wouldn’t say its a sour ale at all. mjs (7778) - Helsinki, FINLAND - MAY 21, 2008

Bottle. Brown-red body with a begie colour. Aroma is from strawberries, candy, sweet malt and some cola. Flavor is sweet, earthy, colamalt and some red fruits. Oalate is quite big and round. kramer (6991) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 8, 2008
25 cl bottle, via jbrus. Pours an amber body with a slight ruby tint under a fizzy beige head that faded rather quickly. The nose is lots of wet sweaty grains with a touch of oxidation and cooked vegetal notes. The flavor is rather grainy and tired with no tart or sourness to speak of. There’s an unwelcomed caramel sweetness on the finish actually. Long lingering cooked celery flavor late on in the finish. Mouthfeel is too sweet and cloying for the style with moderate fizzy carbonation. Overall, one of the worst Oud Bruins that I’ve had. It’s weird that their Grand Cru version is so much better.

Dark ruby brown color, small tan head. Aroma of vinegar, chocolate, iron, caramel and dark fruits. A bit carbonated. Caramelly (candy sugar, brown sugar), some dark malts. As Oud Bruin beer should be more tart than this is, only some sourness in the afteraste. Overall very sweet, a bit too watery.
UPDATED: APR 16, 2008 250ml bottle (BelgianShop)Tranquillity (2571) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - APR 15, 2008
Dark brown, small tight head. Musty earthy aroma, a little dusty. Sweet brown malts. Where’s the oud? Slight hint of woodiness, but too sweet overall. Sticky because of that, and leaves me needing a drink.
Bottled. Weird aroma. Initially old socks, then cheese, blue cheese. I’ve had pizzas that smelled like this. Taste sweet, not very full, with a bitter oaky finish. I like oud bruins, but wouldn’t order this in a bar.
