A blend of 33% Petrus Aged Pale, pure barrel aged beer that has been aged for two years in oak barrels, and 67% young brown beer. In this blend, the young dark beer contributes the reddish-brown colour and the Aged Pale contributes the slightly sour flavour. Petrus Roodbruin is a typical Flemish red ale as tradition dictates.

gilvanblight (825) - Windsor, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 28, 2007
Nice bubly tan head over a burnt sienna pour. Amazing scent. Beeries, wood, smoke, and sweetness. Very nice taste, full of tart berries and dark smokiness. There is a touch of sweetness with a flavour that reminds me of a sweeter red wine. A very dry finish. One of the best beers I have had in recent memory.

Acetobacter (815) - Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 6, 2009
Enjoyed via 11.2 oz bottle. Pours a deep brown with a slight off-white head. Nose of sour cherries, malt, and a touch of dark fruit. Palate of more sour cherries, a touch of caramelly malt, and a bit of residual sweetness. A dry finish makes this a tremendously easy drinker. An excellent and traditional interpretation of a Belgian classic style.

Valgreen (814) - DENMARK - OCT 20, 2014
Bottle @ døe fadlageret. Clear brown, small white head, nice lacing. Aroma, malty, vinegar, caramel, dark fruits notes. Similar taste. Thin body. High carbonation.

Toffee brown with a creamy beige head. nice lace pattern left on the glass>

high_on_hops (809) - Burlingame, California, USA - JUN 22, 2014
Pours a medium hazy brown with a tan head. It has a nice, slightly funky aroma with some oak and dark fruit. The flavor is also slightly funky, with a semisweet malt backbone and a faintly tart finish.

Bontus (807) - Flanders, BELGIUM - APR 3, 2016
Bottle, 33cl, Geers. Pours dark red brown. Thick beige head. Lactic acid nose, old wet wood, slight vinous. Also sweet, medium oud bruin afaic.

Bradrcr (806) - Renton, Washington, USA - DEC 17, 2007
11/7/07 From the bottle. Aroma is phenolic and yet malty, with smoke and light caramel; very well balanced for such contrasting tones. Appearance is hazy copper brown with a moderate tan head. Flavor is malty, lively, and very clean, with only a light sourness. Mouthfeel is meium bodied with a low carb feel. Overall, very easy drinking, quite literally, this goes down too quickly and begs you asking for more.

yalnikim (802) - Wellington, NEW ZEALAND - NOV 16, 2007
Tasted 16/11/2007. 330ml bottle from Regional Wines and Spirits. Dark reddish chestnut. Light-tan head that disappears faster than hopes of a Phoenix clean-sheet. Nose is wood, sour fruit, vanilla, dark malt. Quite slender through the mouth, and fizzy, with a little sweetness, reminiscent of cola, a nice balancing sour fruit character and a dry woody finish. Mildly bitter and ever-so-slightly more tannic. Pretty good but, to be honest, I’m a little bit suspicious - "Matured on oaken barrels during 20 months"?

KajII (801) - Macon, North Carolina, USA - OCT 9, 2013
750ml Bottle. The pour was a murky medium dark brown with an average (1-2 finger) creamy light brown head that diminished at a nice slow pace, down to a thick puddled film with a large collar thus producing excellent thick sheeting of lacing.

The aroma was of a dark sweet malt and an funky earthy Belgian yeast with notes of brown sugar, dark fruit (cherries, plums and grapes), a mild vinous scent, a touch of oak cask and a definite tartness.

The taste was lightly sweet and acidic with a bit of brown sugar in the beginning, but quickly became somewhat sour and acetic with a very strong fruity vinous presence and a bold woody flavor towards the finish. The flavor hung around for an average time following the swallow, with the tart woody winey taste fading slowly from the taste buds.

Mouthfeel was a few strokes below medium in body and quite dry in texture with a lightly ticklish carbonation.

Overall this was a tasty and refreshing Oud Bruin, although I fell that a bit more sourness would have improved the flavor just a bit. But that’s just my opinion... www.facebook.com/KAJIIsBeerReviews

The aroma is full of hops and christmas even though it isn’t a christmas beer. the color is dark caramel. The taste is full of christmas. It is slightly sweet and bitter at the same time. Not a fan at all.
