A great beer with only 4.5 % of alcohol. A perfect beer for everyone a little sour and alsoe some sweet things.

Alengrin (5895) - BELGIUM - SEP 3, 2014
Very old-fashioned session beer in the Oudenaarde tradition (the name is local dialect for ’Oudenaarde’), in printed bottles; discontinued by Moortgat when they took over the Liefmans brand and already in decline at that time. Basically a watered down version of Liefmans Kriekbier, thinner, lighter, less fruity with a more straightforward profile, but still all-round ’oud bruin’ with malty sweetness coupled with woody sourishness. One of those delightfully old school Flemish beers with little chance of making a comeback, I’m afraid.

5/II/2012 33cl bottle around 1990 vintage @ vintage tasting Brugs Bierfestival - BB: n/a (2012-96) Thanks to Franck for the sample!

Clear ruby red beer, no noticeable head, lots of black sediment floating around. Aroma: sweet, vinous, sherry, madeira and port notes, bit sugary. MF: still some carbon, light to medium body. Taste: sweet start, some red fruits, red lace candy, bit sugary, sour touch, red wine. Aftertaste: some red forrest fruits, candy, little bitter.

Bottle 33cl. @ home.
[ Trade by MesandSim ]. Clear medium red brown color with a small, fizzy, fair - virtually none lacing, fully diminishing, off-white head. Aroma is moderate malty, caramel, dark berry acidic and sour, oxidid malt, vintage, old cherry, sour sweet cherry. Flavor is moderate to heavy sweet and moderate acidic with a long duration. Body is medium, texture is watery, carbonation is flat. Thanks so much Paul for letting me have this lovely beer ;o)) [20081206]

MiP (16055) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - SEP 15, 2008
Bottle. Weak raisin aroma. Clear dark brown colour. Raisin flavour, slightly oxidized. No BB date, but probably 3 to 4 years ago.

yespr (48931) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - SEP 12, 2008
33 cL bottle. Pours almost clear and golden deep amber to brown with a fully diminished light tan head. Aroma is chemical to sweet raisin. Malty and slight metallic yeasty with a light acidic touch towards sourish. Fruity towards cherry yet also a bit on the malty side and acidic. Towards dry acidic finish, slight watery.

Bottle. Vintage 2003 (or 2004?). [thanks for sharing, Skortila!]
Pours a deep brown with no head. Aroma has caramel and general musky sourness. Kind of flat. Flavour is lightly sour with a little caramel to balance things up. This might be just a year too cellared :o)

anders37 (27635) - Malmö, SWEDEN - JAN 10, 2007
Bottle @ Oud Arsenaal, Antwerp, december 2004. Pours a brownish/red color with an off-white head. Malty and sour aroma with some hints of wood. Fruity malty sour flavor with some nice sweetness. Nice dry tart malty finish.

Jerre (3857) - Waregem, BELGIUM - SEP 12, 2006
Yesterday tasted, but a know this beer since years. Dark amber-brown with beige head.The ale is more fresh and "cleaner" than expected. Fruity sour finsih. A nice sour ale.

bager (2120) - Copenhagen N, DENMARK - JUL 27, 2006
Bottled and three years old. Very nice. Ruby and brownish in colour with an off-white head. Wellbalanced sourness and sweetness. Soft and round in a good way. Hints of prunes and maple.
