3.1
puboflyons (3434) - Allenstown, New Hampshire, USA - DEC 19, 2012
From the 330 ml. bottle with a bottle cap stamped 15:20/1703-25APRIL17. The pour was darker than I anticipated coming in with a deep amber tone and ruby red hues in the light. The head was tremendous but I was serving it at about 50 degrees. Lots of sour ale aroma on the nose with modest pale malts, wood, cherry, butter, and molasses. The body is medium and slightly astringent. It lives up to its sour taste expectations with some cherry and spice and a slight lingering bitterness.

Scopey (14768) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 29, 2012
Bottle at home. It pours deep ruby-brown, with a small beige head. The nose is faintly acidic, wood, red wine vinegar, tangy berry and light jamminess. The taste is tangy, wood, varnish, light vanilla, green apple, sweet red berry, vinous, caramel and some astringency, with a dry, earthy finish. Medium body and moderate, prickly carbonation. I prefer my oud bruins with some more sour tanginess.

2.3
NordicV (2347) - Malmö, Sweden, SWEDEN - JUL 9, 2012
Brunröd grulig öl med ett beige skum. Doftar torkad frukt och lite trä. I smaken är det mycket bränt socker. Saknar nästan helt surheten jag väntat mig.

3.3
Benjii (3049) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUN 5, 2012
In bottle. Pours a dark amber - brown colour with a fair beige head. Aroma of light pickled onion sourness with caramel, Ovaltine, oak and alcohol. Similar flavours and surprisingly bitter with mild carbonation and an oily mouth-feel. Quite dry and interesting.

3.3
prawlie (1593) - Berkshire, ENGLAND - MAR 21, 2012
Bottle into own long glass at De Krakele in Brugge. Red brown with short lived creamy head. Woody, slightly yeasty ale, light red fruitiness. Refreshing yet a litte dry in the aftertaste. Aroma is acidic, sour and vinious. Decent

jfb (6270) - GERMANY - MAR 7, 2012
(bottle) pours a darkest ruby-brown colour with a frothy light beige head. aroma of grain, red grapes, candy floss, melted butter and canned peaches, slightly composty. flavour is mostly the same, underattenuated, lots of sticky brown sugar and butter, with an inappropriate herbal-hoppy bitter finish. medium-bodied with average carbonation.

Small bottle. Pours a dark reddish brown with a thin beige head. Nice aroma with medium sweetness and vinegar. Flavor has some good cherry notes with lingering sourness.

3.5

Bottled from 124 rabbit club. Poured a dark brown with little head. Not very sour for a sour ale but I liked it.
