Van de grand cru van hen ben ik fan, maar de oud bruin vond ik niet zo lekker.

Jerre (3378) - Waregem, BELGIUM - JUL 28, 2014
Taste this beer many times since 2007. From 25cl bottle. Old brown color, with light beige head. Aroma: fruits (orange), sour from wood, and sweet too. Medium body. Taste sweet-sour, bit fruits, oak touch. Good.

Rasmus40 (20635) - Beder, Aarhus, DENMARK - JUL 27, 2014
Bottle from Willems @ hotel room, France. Hazy brown with a small off-white head. Aroma is sweet, malty, caramel and dark fruit. Flavor is medium sweet and light acidic. Sweet and light acidic finish. 150714

JulienHuxley (5806) - Sherbrooke, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 24, 2014
Bottle from Willems. Hazy red-brown pour with thin but persistent pale yellow head. Aroma is earthy, mushrooms, light tomato, light on the acidic notes, a bit of oak but no real balsamic or ketchup or cherries. Taste is sweet, woody but not actually acidic, maybe slightly low in the PH but it really just seems to be to keep the sweetness in check, lots of earthy notes, lots of caramel as well. Palate is med bodied with light-med carbonation. Drinkable beer, but off what I expect from an oud red/bruin.

JefVerstraete (3351) - Oosterzele, BELGIUM - JUL 14, 2014
Dark brown colour, beige foam. Medium carbonation. Sweet/sour taste with light vinous notes and some vinegar. Also caramel and light mettalic aftertaste. Easy drinkable and refreshing, bit thin.

kraddel (8101) - Antwerp, 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 (493) - 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 (2217) - 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 owoców i rabarbaru. Są również aromaty sernika, drewna, dymu i goździków. USTA : piwo jest słodkie o nutach śliwek suszonych, ciasta i innych owoców przetworzonych. Delikatnie kwaśne o również 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 hipsterów :p OCENA : smak : 7/10 pijalność : 6/10

teddybeer (3782) - Madrid, SPAIN - APR 11, 2014
On tap @ Irreale (Madrid). Strong reddish colour with an off-white head with good duration and nice lacework. aroma has notes of ripe red fruits, with toasted crumb notes, slightly sweet and good maltiness. Flavor is slightly sourish, high presence of red fruits, creamy and smooth on palate with mild notes of wood. The final is mild sweet with a good maltiness.
