Bottle @ Microbar, Clapham, London. Nose of vinegar, sour apples, malt and molasses. Pours a dark ruby coloured beer giving a small whit ehead. Taste is tart, malty with vinegar and vinous notes and a syrup red wine finish. Although it has the right ingredients it just doesn’t "get you there" like other sour ales do.

UPDATED: JUL 24, 2014 330ml bottle (One Pint Pub, Helsinki, Belgian Beer Week 2008) (6:4:7:3:14=3.4)oh6gdx (26485) - Vasa, FINLAND - JAN 27, 2008
Hazy brown with orange glints, thin head. Softly sour and rich malty aroma, a hint of piss. A little apple in the sour taste, creamy in the maltiness, and very well balanced between the sour and the sweet. Mellow and refreshing.

Original Liefmans, not Moortgat. Lovely barrel aging aroma, some butteriness and wood esters. Lovely gentle sweet red ale taste still, and the sour bite is still lovely, possibly sharper than before. Sweetness has subdued a little. Pleasant red, small brief head, carbonation a bit brief. Malts have turned a little papery. A lovely refreshing sipper even though it’s probably 8 years old, maybe more. Again, great balance between the sweetness and the sourness.
Bottled. Brownish ambery colour, mediumsized beige head. Aroma is sourness, cherries and wet wood. Flavour is very sour fruity and wooden notes with also some wineous hints. Quite brutal breakfast beer. I was surprised by that an Oud Bruin would be a sour ale, but in a very positive way. Nice. KimJohansen (10498) - Frederiksberg C, DENMARK - JAN 10, 2008
Brown with tiny beige head. Tart aroma with raisins cherries and wood. Vinious flavor with notes of wood, cherries, vinegar and fruits. Maria (10211) - Thisted, DENMARK - DEC 17, 2007
Dark brown with a weak head. The aroma is sour with notes of fruit. The flavour is sweet/sour, mostly sweet. It has notes of fruit and a rather dry finish. I think it’s boring, mostly perhaps because I’m disappointed. I thought this was a brown ale as the bottle says, but I think it’s more like a sweet Flemish sour....

Bottle. High off-white long lasting fluffy head. Hazy dark red body. Acidic berries aroma. Hard to describe bitteer to acidic but still relatively sweet and mild round flavor with caramel cutrys and a good deal of sugar as well. Low carbonation. Short aftertaste. DruncanVeasey (8456) - Nr NUNEATON, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - OCT 9, 2007
Burgundy pour sniffing of cherry stone fruit, almond, a dab of malt vinegar. Beige suds resolving into mould-like clusters. Mellow fruity acidity, stale oak, a tingle of sherbet. Plenty of biscuity malt in a long sweet aftertaste. Easy drinking, nicely balanced, sweetish sour ale. swoopjones (7020) - Buffalo, New York, USA - SEP 29, 2007
