Pink beer. Hazy chemicals and wheat. Sourness but coupled with a seriously tart chemically overtone. Wheat in the mouth, lmbic traditionals, and a large hunk of chemically berry sweetness and haze. A dissapointment compared to the straight gueuze.

I can not believe that i had yet to have this fine brew. I believe i slammed it in less than a minute cause thats how i roll. Lots of rasberry flavor, very sweet, very good. CaptainCougar (7133) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - DEC 1, 2005
Pours a clear deep ruby with a frothy off-white head. Aroma has some sweet raspberry vinegar fruitiness. Body starts with some mild sugary malty raspberry flavor turning more tart and balanced toward the finish. A nice framboise. pivo (2685) - GERMANY - NOV 29, 2005
Sweet juice-like aroma. Rudy color, low tight pink head. Raspberries, of course, sweet and upfront, but balanced by a light sourness. Could be more sour, but otherwise this is straightforward and quite good. luckygirl (1223) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - NOV 27, 2005
This beer poured a hazy deep rose with a small, pink, diminishing head. The aroma is sour and dominated by raspberry (of course) with notes of basement, rosehips and maybe sawdust. The flavor started off sweet, moderately bitter and full of berry, but then changed up for a strong, unpleasant bitter finish without any of the playful lambic quality I was expecting.

Bottle. Head is initially small, fizzy, pink, fully diminishing. Body is hazy medium red, bottle conditioned. Aroma is lightly malty (toasted grain), lightly yeasty (cobwebs), with a note of raspberry (with lots of woody/seedy character). Flavor is moderately sweet, moderately acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, moderately acidic, heavily bitter. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation, lightly astringent. Weird blast of bitterness in the finish, not much lambic character, pretty difficult to enjoy. argo0 (14127) - Washington DC, USA - NOV 26, 2005
(draft) Clear red-pink body with white head. Aroma is mild, medium sweet, raspberry. Taste is medium sweet, raspberry, some tartness/astringency in the finish. Taste more a fruit beer than a lambic. Watery light body with some syrup. YogiBeera (2569) - New Jersey, USA - NOV 25, 2005
Intense acidic nose. Light red color, small layer of a head. Goes straight to the taste of raspberries - medium sweet. Round. Solid. JoeMcPhee (9515) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 23, 2005
Tap at Heads Up Brewing.
Deep garnet beer with almost no head at all. Nice fresh raspberry aroma with some tart lactic notes as well. Light spiciness behind the fruit. Flavour is quite sweet but also tart. Spicy cinnamon/nutmeg flavour. There’s an odd plasticy flavour in the finish that I’m not a huge fan of. Lacks a lot of wild character that would have been outstanding.

Muddy, reddish-brown colour. Fresh but a little syrupy raspberry nose with only a hint of brett. A bit of seedy character, sweet raspberries. Clean...very little lambic character save for some late tartness. With any other label, this wouldn’t feel so wrong, but to use the Oud Beersel name on this confection is regrettable.
