COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Flemish Oud Bruin, with lactobacillus, fermented in Bordeaux and whisky barrels, and afterwards blended. Not very sour , the bordeaux barrels really take center stage. Supremely sophisticated woody aged malt flavor. Mild milky to a whisky dense caramel malt base. Nice blend which gives a distinct more "serious" malt base from the whisky compared to many other Flemish oud bruins, as a consequence the body is more full and smooth.

Rune (7988) - Tromsø, NORWAY - JUN 2, 2009
100ml on tap. Tiny head. Deep amber body. Tart fruity aroma. Fusion of dark fruits in flavour with woody malts behind. The acidity is not that insistent. Smooth on the swallow (CBF, 1605.2009).

Borresteijn (4634) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - MAY 24, 2009
75cl Bottle from De Bierkoning. Dark reddish brown colour, thin lasting off white head. Aroma of light sour fruits, dark malts, some oak, becomes more complex when the beer warms up. Flavour is malty and caramel sweet, light sour, woody, earthy liquorice root, when it warms up the whisky barrel notes come out more, which are IMO very nice. Light sour finish. Medium bodied, smooth mouthfeel. Don’t drink this too cold, you’ll miss a lot of nice flavours.
