Brouwerij Van Steenberge Monk’s Café Flemish Sour Ale (Bios Vlaamse Bourgogne) Oude Bruin at 5.5% ABV ($3.99 at Specs Main Branch, 330ml, best before 23-Mar-2015)

Pours murky and opaque amber brown with one finger of light tan head diminishing gradually to a thin skim, spotty lacing. (4/5) Nose is red fruit, raisins, vinegar, woody and vinous notes. (7/10) Taste is moderate sweet, moderate tart. (7/10) Medium body, moderate to low carbonation, off-dry tart finish. (4/5)

A very mild sour / oude bruin. Aromas of dark, slightly boozy fruit reminiscent of a quadrupel, but with a mildly tart, cidery flavour. Very drinkable and quite refreshing. (15/20)

My 137th from the 2010 Edition (retired from the 2013 Edition) and 145th combining both editions.
