Icedwarf (1886) - Etten-Leur, NETHERLANDS - AUG 28, 2016
Roodbruin bier met weinig schuim. Smaak is fris zuur en fruitig met iets van bramen en bessen.

bartlebier (4216) - Belchium im Biersgau, GERMANY - MAR 5, 2016
75cl bottle (vintage?) kindly shared by Bierhandlung in the aftermath of Bier mit Stil 2: Saison. - Oldschool oud bruin sessioner keeping the brakes on most parameters of the style, going for watered down mulled wine to go with seafood: tannic red wine notes and light oak peices by red balsamics, surface lacto, some cherry and Lotus speculaas. Rougher edges in the lacto. A time capsule to early 90s Belgian beer & weekday food culture, in an accessible low profile beer. Porbably one of the better Strubbe beers.

biirusaikou (2705) - - JAN 13, 2016
Bottle at Lao Lao. Overripe red fruit and sweet caramel, grape and sugar, oscillates from sour to sweet on the palate. Fairly tasty stuff but a bit unbalanced and heavy, definitely a difficult style to nail.

kerenmk (5358) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - NOV 17, 2015
Bottle sample at a tasting at Alexei and Raphaela’s. Thanks Yoav. Murky brown with a tan ring. Baby puke, lactic, a little rotten but all in all faint aroma. Delicate funk and vinous in the mouth. Full body, delicate fizz, a little grape juice finish.

Ysok02 (1913) - Mons, BELGIUM - NOV 1, 2015
Une bière assez banale tant au nez qu’en bouche, l’ensemble manque de puissance et de complexité.

Wixie (694) - BELGIUM - AUG 10, 2015
Dark liquid with red shining. Small head. Heavy and fruity, interesting aroma. Medium body, no carbonisation. Taste is sour and sweet.

UXO (1896) - CANADA - JUL 23, 2015
Appearance: slightly hazy deep amber with a short tan head diminishing rapidly to a thin skim, minimal lacing. (3/5) Aroma: muted, red berries, wood (oak), brown sugar. (6/10) Taste: moderate sweet, mild bitter, mild tart. (6/10) Palate: medium body, moderate carbonation, slightly tart finish. (3/5) Extremely mild oud bruin, almost no sour at all. Pleasant and mild, but a bit of a letdown, if I’m honest - I was looking forward to face-puckering tartness, and that just isn’t here. (12/20)
