UXO (1683) - CANADA - DEC 20, 2016
Appearance: clear deep amber with a short beige head diminishing to a thin ring, no lacing. (3/5) Aroma: vinous red fruit, green apples, oak, umame. (9/10) Taste: moderate sweet, moderate-high tart. (9/10) Palate: medium-light body, moderate carbonation, lingering tart and gently warming finish. (4/5) Advent day #20 (first day of winter!) brings one of my favourite styles, the Oud Bruin (Flanders Brown). I’m fairly sure this is actually just a slightly renamed version of their Oud Bruin, but I haven’t had that one, so I could be wrong. Certainly, I’m not getting a lot of hops, so I don’t know how relevant the name is. This is a nice beer, but that’s hardly surprising given their founders include a former head brewer of Omer Vanderghinste, a former employee of De Proef Brouwerij, and a former employee of Van Honsebrouck and New Belgium - a fairly impressive pedigree, to say the least. This beer reminds me of Rodenbach, or maybe Vichtenaar, and definitely tends more to the tart than the more traditional sweet and funky like Duchesse de Bourgogne. Still within spec for the style, but at the sour end of the scale, if you will. It’s actually so sour that I can’t tell if there’s any bitterness or not - but if there is, it’s low. I like this a lot. (17/20)

MrW (568) - Mechelen, BELGIUM - DEC 19, 2016
This as well was perfectly served at Moeder Lambic in the centre of Brussels! Aroma is tart, apple, a bit stables. Although it is a quickly fading head, it was served with the head. Redbrown. Taste is sharp sour, fading to fruity sour, berries. Feel refreshing, dusty finish.

Sample at Örebro Öl & Whisky 2016. Tart and fruity with cellar notes. Very tart taste, also fruity. Refreshing. High tartness. Not sure where the hops come in.

Icedwarf (1424) - Etten-Leur, NETHERLANDS - DEC 2, 2016
Helder rood bruin bier zonder schuim. Smaak is zuur en fris fruitig met iets van aardbei en bessen. Voor mij iets te zuur.

Samuel214 (820) - SWEDEN - NOV 26, 2016
Flaska på Örebro Öl & Whisky Festival. Brunröd med litet beiget skum. Syrligt med mycket syrliga inlagda bär, lite ättika och kolaremmar. Lite sötma bakom. Håller ihop väl. Trevlig.
