Assaggio da 100ml allo Zythos Beer Festival 2016:
Buon esempio dello stile Oud Bruin.
Al naso aromi di arancia e cuoio. In bocca il malto lascia un piacevole finale di cioccolato al latte.
La birra è color bruno mediamente carico.
Il bilanciamento è ottimo tra l’acetico e la dolcezza dei malti.
Il corpo è medio/pieno, la carbonazione scarsa. La birra risulta abbastanza densa oleosa ma mai pesante. PeatyPete (1058) - NETHERLANDS - APR 28, 2016
Copper color with off-white head. Aroma is fruity acid. Taste of fruit, what acidic, wood and caramel. Beerhunter111 (20487) - P´Castle, GERMANY - FEB 7, 2016
Klare orange braune Farbe, schöne stabile beige Schaumkrone. Geruch nach roten Früchten, Karamell, dunkles Malz. Geschmack nach roten Beeren, leicht säuerlich, Karamell, gut! PriorL (3068) - Gent, BELGIUM - JUL 4, 2015
Draught at Pressklubben.
APPEARANCE: red brown beer, small stable beige head.
NOSE: sour, fruity, oak, some cherries.
TASTE: sour, fruity, oak, in general a bit watered down Rodenbach. But not bad at all! PartyFowle (954) - - MAY 7, 2015
Draft. Deep maroon, dark but mostly clear, with two fingers of marshmallowy sand-colored foam. In the nose: Honey, caramel and balsamic in that order. Fairly malt-focused. The flavor seems almost oxidized, with malts and old honey, biscuits, caramel and a splash of balsamic. Not as tart as I’d like.

Very old-fashioned ’oud bruin’, though not matured on oak (but there is a long lagering in fusts). Caramelly, chocolatey, nutty, with sweet sourish taste, artificially added lactic acid (with which there is nothing wrong as such), sweetness dominates. A somewhat simple, straightforward example, like so many oud bruin beers must have been a hundred years ago. I like the way this brewery sticks to tradition, obsolete as their beers may be. mikske79 (1668) - Puerto Plata, DOMINICAN REPUBLIC - AUG 15, 2014
Normaal ben ik niet zo’n fan van oud bruin, maar deze kon mij absoluut bekoren. MarcoDL (4969) - NETHERLANDS - MAY 11, 2014
I really like this style, but this one is just too sweet, like they poured sugar in it. A shame. ippopotamo36 (2383) - Rome, ITALY - APR 27, 2014
In Leuven at the ZBF 2001 vintage version. Pours clear dark brown...no hazy appearance due to the aging and also almost no foam. Nose of prunes and liquor notes. Watery mouth. Good beer but I think not for aging.

Bottle @ Kulminator. Red/brown colour. Very weak aroma. Thin body. Almost no sourness. Sweet with notes of cardboard and dust. Not good at all.
