375 ml bottle @ Gastropub Tuulensuu, Tampere.sebletitje (10293) - Enghien, BELGIUM - MAR 24, 2012
Pours clear copper color with a small head. Aroma of ripe fruits, some grass and sour grape fruits. Flavor is also quite sour with grape fruits, grass and faint yeast. Sour palate. Nice.
Bottle @ VBPF’12.
Brune foncée, col fin beige.
Arôme agréable rappelant un bouquet subtile de gousse de vanille sur ce nez malté et léger caramel.En bouche, aigreur modérée pour une ’sour’ très abordable, aigreur persiste en bouche laissant un léger profile fruité avec au final ce mélange parfait d’une malt caramel et une pointe de sucré-aigre de cerise. Le tout se termine sur un côté épicé/boisé qui se répand sur le palais.

Note: the brewer calls this an experimental beer, as it is their first try for a Vlaams Oud Bruin. Possibly this beer will change in the future.
Bit cloudy copper red to brown beer, aery off-white smal head, unstable and non adhesive. Dissipates quite quickly. Aroma: fruity, sour cherries, wood, little sweet, some yoghurt (lactobacillus). Taste: sour but fruity start, lemony, raspberries, red currants. Aftertaste: lemon, raspberries, butter milk. The more you drink of it, the more complex flavours you are able to detect. This beer needs some balancing, but it’s already promising. Can’t wait till they make a blend with a 2 year old sour, instead of a one year old.
Draught Small beige head over hazy foxy-amber beer. Oud bruin, at its best; extremely fruity, cherry, lactic acid, putteke, wet wood. Fresh, tart, oud bruin in wood, but less fruity in the mouth than in the nose. Only the MF leaves a bit to be desired, being a tad watery, but offering lasting lactic acid flavouring. Excellent! I want more from these guys. In the present sample, a bit more body and a bit more lagering might have elevated it even higher. GT (10017) - San Diego, California, USA - APR 23, 2012
375mL thanks to Travlr. Pours muddy rouge with a larger, fizzing, beige head. Larger lace for style. Nose is red wine vinous with heavy mustiness and cobwebby funk. Some dried meat and thanksgiving holiday spices. Strange. Nice though. Taste is tangy, acetic heat, lots of citric acid and paper. Mouth watering. Longer, interesting finish with white wine vinegar. Not too bad.
