kraddel (7585) - some beerplace, BELGIUM - JUN 23, 2014
UPDATED: DEC 27, 2015 Bottle Pours dark brown with red shine . Small , very small white head . Scent is rather sweet, fleshy , oak. Taste is sour, with a sweet back , some oak as well, fleshy . kicks in pretty overpowering but than ends in subtile, sugary-sweet ending . Slightly metallic as well . Decent beer , deserves a better score than the average . But by far not the best in the style . Rerate. Pretty much in complex and sweet , way less good than i remember it being. Lowering the score from the previous 3,8 ( was this perhaps for the grand cru and misrated ??? )

Syrlig smak och doftar. Man kan säga att det är en syrlig Brown Ale. Mycket angenäm. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

nathanvc (360) - Brugge, BELGIUM - JUN 2, 2014
Aroma of citrus, apple and red wine. Appears dark red/brown, hazy and almost no head. The taste is medium acidic and lightly sweet. Dry in the aftertaste. A very light body, fizzy carbonation. An "okay" beer.

Swaroga (2209) - Warszawa, POLAND - APR 30, 2014
25cl butelka. OCZY : przejrzyste o kolorze ciemnego brązu. Piane jest średniej wielkości i ma kolor jasnego beżu. NOS : piwo ma mocne aromaty karmelu, gruszki, śliwek, gotowanych owocw i rabarbaru. Są rwnież aromaty sernika, drewna, dymu i goździkw. USTA : piwo jest słodkie o nutach śliwek suszonych, ciasta i innych owocw przetworzonych. Delikatnie kwaśne o rwnież owocowej barwie. Cierpkość jest obecna ale gdzieś daleko w tyle gdyż piwo jest przede wszystkim słodkie aż do końca. Ale nie za słodkie i chwała mu za to. ODCZUCIA : jest to jedno z lepszych ale zarazem bardziej słodkich Oude Bruin jakie piłem. Jest to totalne przeciwieństwo modnych bomb chmielowych. Prawdziwie piwny underground. Piwo dla hipsterw :p OCENA : smak : 7/10 pijalność : 6/10

BadAprilia1000 (433) - Sevierville, Tennessee, USA - JAN 20, 2014
Pours a dark brown with little to no head. Very, faint aroma with faint sour and acidic nose. Also a slight funky note in the aroma. Taste is slightly sweet, with a very faint sour aftertaste. You dont get the sour kind of shock most of them give your taste buds initially. Very mellow and sub par for my standards of a sour. I probably not be trying this one again.

maekchu (3764) - Hirakata, JAPAN - NOV 23, 2013
Bottle. Sour fruit, rude barny notes, slight sewer, all behind a lot of dark sugar. Dark tea color. Harsh tart fruit initial, slight oxidation, grapes and overripe melon, and a touch of chocolate. Thin-medium body with some astringency. Complex aroma. Flavors are mild but quite exceptional.

77ships (9277) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - JUL 5, 2013
25 cl. bottle @ home. From Willems. BBF 17/12/2014. Label is in Dutch unlike the Grand Cru which was in English. Pours a very hazy pomegranate chestnut brown with only some beige bubbles for the head. Nose is spoiled red grapes, cheap red wine, wood, sweet jam, molasses and malts. Taste is sweet molasses, varnish, wood, molasses, spoiled red grapes & spoiled cheap red wine, cheap cherry liqueur candy, touch bitter in the back, hint metallic. Reasonable malt & red wine body. Not to different from the Grand Cru in quality which scores much higher here. Still not a fan, tastes like prison-made red wine & also very messy. If I would like to drink crappy wine, I would do just that. Crude but that is how I feel about this.
