Wow. Thanks to TampaBrew for bringing this one. Pours a lovely red with haze and a creamy off-white head. Nose is cherry, wood, vinegar, fruit, and sweetness. Flavor is the same with a pervading balsamic presence that is very mellow and resides firmly in the background. Medium bodied, complex, and finishing with cherries, vinegar, and mellow vinegar. Top noch, and very drinkable.
Copenhagen 22/12018. 37,5 cl bottle from Øl-handleren in Hørning. Bottle made out to look like some kind of clay bottle. Drawing of whom seems to be the brewmaster Rudi Ghequire sporting a glass of sour beer on the label. Pours clear reddish brown with small bubbly off-white head. Settles as thin patch of foam floating aimlessly around. Aroma has some sweetness but is dominated by strong sourness. Vanilla and fruit sugar meeting sour unripe gooseberries, lemon and sour apples. Acidic and strong. Strong carbonation and watery palate. Flavor is medium sweet followed by strong and dry sourness. Aftertaste is sour with a little sugary insistence. Finish dry. Very nice sour fellow with a magnificent balance between the fresh sour fruit and the more subdued sweetness. samsomuk (416) - Bridgwater, Somerset, ENGLAND - JAN 11, 2018

UPDATED: DEC 31, 2017 Aromat winny, dużo nut octowych, wiśniowych i czerwonych owoców oraz drzewnych nut beczki. W smaku dość mocno kwaśne z kontrą lekkiej słodyczy. W posmaku cierpkie, taniczne. Wysycenie niewielkie. Dość treściwe i zarazem bardzo pijalne. Bardzo dobre piwo. beertaste018 (6) - - DEC 31, 2017 does not count

0.75l bottle vintage 2014. Almost totally clear reddish body with a very thin white head. Aroma of sour cherries, oak, mold and grapes. Taste of sour cherry, oak, tobacco, caramel and vinegar. Bone dry and sour. The aroma has a tiny bit of solvent-like harshness, but the taste is probably the best from all oude bruins I've had. Really nice. tricksta_p (5366) - Steenwijk, NETHERLANDS - DEC 25, 2017

Bottle shared at tasting session. Reddish brown colour, small white lacing. Nose is red wine, a touch of acetic acid. Taste is medium sweetness, some acetic notes, and candied sugar. Those who had more flemish reds than I did said its too sweet, but I liked it like this. klu9 (895) - Kraków, POLAND - DEC 18, 2017
