Thanks to GT for sharing.

The beer is dark brown with a beige head. The aroma offers pears, malt, yeasty bread. Hints of bananas, sweet bread, mild tartness. This is ok, but not quite up to the level I have come to expect from Urbain and De Struise. Still, worth a gander. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Clear dark ruby body with some carbonation, beige fine bubbled head that reduces to thin layer

Dark fruits, oak, dark malts, some tartness, booze - everything quite restrained

Taste is predominantly sour with a very dry aftertaste. As it warms up I get also the wood towards the finish. Still rather bland and not complex.

Medium to light body, not much carbonation, astringent

I do like sour beers and especially flanders oud bruin but this one is a dissapointment coming from the sruisse brouwers. Why bother and double barrel aging if there is nothing much happening to flavor and aroma. Not bad but also not recommended as this costs apretty penny

500ml bottle. 2009.

Bought 2 of these a while back. Had the first a year ago without drama, this bottle geysered violently on opening until less than a third of the bottle remained. After cleaning up, poured a super turbid coca mahogany with an airy tan head that summarily drops without a trace.

Initially all about thick, leathery balsamic and carob notes with dry fortified undertones. Later on, sour cherry and stewed dark plums emerge and moderate diacetyl becomes increasingly apparent. Opens up further with light floral perfume, hints of nail polish remover finish it off. Busy and interesting.

More of the muscular woody, tobacco-y balsamic action. Quite gritty and astringent. Base oud bruin fruitiness is a little overpowered.

Light to medium body with silky and subdued carbonation. Unfortunately the booze latches on to the strong lactic character impeding drinkability.

A few flaws in execution but an intelligent concept with really satisfying complexity. Would like to see this brewed again.
