Beer5000 (6193) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - FEB 23, 2007
Bottle. Beautiful red/brown body with a beige head. Aroma has a certain cellar character with well-matured sweet cherry, just delicious. Flavor delivers most of the expectations from the aroma. Very harmonic balance between sweet and sour. The flavor is dominated by cherry, but in a matured way.

yngwie (16760) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - FEB 20, 2007
Bottled. Clear, ruby-colored beer with a dense, creamy, beige head. Roasted aroma with some laquer, prunes, cherry-stone, cellar and sourness. Sourness, cherry, dried fruits, more sourness and a somewhat nice oxidiced note. Medium-bodied, with a fruity and sour finish. A lovely beer. (070119)

janubio (761) - SPAIN - SEP 27, 2006
Dark red colour, it pours a nice brown creamy foam that last for a while. Nose of acid apples, coriander, fennel. Spicy. Taste is very acid, but pleasant, refreshing. Fruity, with apples and most of all cherries. It makes you ask for another.

haukur (1865) - Reykjavik, ICELAND - SEP 22, 2006
really really interesting and different. Aroma has louds of purfume, candy, sourness, bad coffee .. some cellar feel also. Its not bad or good, but its massive and really interesting! Appearance is murky brown-reddish-dark with a small head but a lot of lacing. Flavour is incredibly sour with a dust, wood hints. Something also which I cant quite understand what is. Very acidic and vinegarish. Really thick and complex considering the abv. A interesting sour ale

Jerre (3273) - Waregem, BELGIUM - SEP 15, 2006
Taste this many times. Dark red color with light beige head. Touch of sugar in the nose and hints of dry fruits. Fine spicyness and faint touch of hops. Taste is round light sweet. Duchesse is better.

MiP (15394) - Snderborg, DENMARK - AUG 30, 2006
Bottle, 5.4%. Sour and sweet aroma, this is clearly an oud bruin. Sparkling, clear brown colour. Stable light brown head. The flavour is very acidic for the style, almost vinegary, which suits it very nicely. It has a little sweetness, but without cancelling out the acidity. I detect a slightly roasted flavour behind the acidity. This is what I feel an oud bruin should be.

bu11zeye (12908) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - AUG 25, 2006
UPDATED: OCT 17, 2011 (Bottle, best before 06-06-07) Pours a dark red body with an average beige head. Aroma of cocoa, brett sourness, port, vinous, cherry, and dustiness. Flavors of sour cherries, caramel, and vinous. Some bottles are occasionally off with some vinegar flavors.

oh6gdx (25953) - Vasa, FINLAND - MAY 3, 2006
Bottled. Dark amberish red colour, mediumsized beige head. Aroma is of vinegar, acid, glue and some dry fruit. Rubber, metal and fruits in the flavour, along with some hints of red wine.

Skinnyviking (9214) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - APR 29, 2006
Bottle. White lasting head. Clear dark red body Vinegar aroma. Rootbeer / goose berry fkavor. This is not my taste of a beer but as is it is so much different from what I have tasted so far Ill give it a couple of extra points in my overall judgement. Not tad at all as we would say in my "home country".
