From bottle, courtesy of Joes. Hazy opaque red color, no head. Smell sour, some warm cherries you sometimes get with Ice cream. Taste sour, unripe fruits. Pretty decent beer, very well balanced. Way better then expected. Medium to high carbo, but not offensive. bierkoning (13392) - La Tropica/Doarp, NETHERLANDS - MAR 19, 2012

12.7 oz bottle. Cloudy red brown with a decent cream colored head. Aroma is of tart cherries, light vinegar, lactic acid. Taste is sour, cherries, lactic acid, citrus, and a hint of vinegar. Alengrin (5438) - BELGIUM - AUG 8, 2014
The first and experimental version of this "new old brown", at the time not yet bottled and sold as "Experimenteel Bier". Stable, yellowish white head, bronze colour with orangey hue. Sweet-sourish aroma one might expect from a good oud bruin, cassis, orange peel, passion fruit, liquorice, oak, sherry, hay; taste very fruity, sourish dry, apple, yoghurt-like lactic acid, caramel malts, woody, complex and dry finish. Very good take on this waning style and it is a good thing new breweries make new examples of it, as it is one of those uniquely Belgian, complex and historically valuable beer styles. Bygers (1185) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUN 25, 2016
Bottle 0,375l. Pours a cloudy brown colour with a large foamy head. The aroma of sour old oxydated apples. Its taste is flat and yeasty and finishes very tart and sour.

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.
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.

Copper color. Lots of carbonation. Aromas of black currants, manure, light caramel malts. Very sharp and sour, puckering. Completely dry, some vinegar, tart forest berries. A bit too tart for me, but has nice complexity.
