Old sour beer is blended with sweet young beer before bottling to create a beer with a sour nose, sweet taste, and a slight sour aftertaste. Ichtegemís goes great with shrimp or can also be used to marinate various kinds of meat in.

harrisoni (15649) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - MAR 22, 2007
25cl bottle from Noel Cuveliers, Abele. Deep ruby/brown colour with lasting tan head. Woody dry malt, tiny bit of sourness. Some sourness in mouth, but sweet candy sugar too. This leads to a sourish finish. Odd lemony deep malt flavour. A dubbel with a touch of lemony sourness. Sourness is definitely there, but offset by sweet malt.

beerinmarch (2830) - Washington, USA - SEP 19, 2006
From the kinda old looking bottle this pours a very nice clear mahogany with a fizzy fast falling white head. This brew was way to sweet for my tastes and with the acidity kinda hurt my gut. Plum and cherry show in the sweetness, but it was just a bit to much.

goldtwins (4320) - Nesconset, New York, USA - SEP 16, 2006
Based on the place I bought this I have to belive this beer has a good number of years on it. Poured a clear dark amber with a red tint and a thin off-white head. Yeast chunks started falling into the glass with still a fair amount of beer left in the bottle. The aroma is tart, sweet and a little fruity but otherwise not much going on. The flavor is tart and actually tasty but for about two seconds. Then everything fades away leaving nothing in the mouth other than a hint of wood. Dry and very short on flavor.

reakt (949) - Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 10, 2006
UPDATED: SEP 2, 2007 Draught from The Beer Weekend, Brussels. Thought Iíd give it a try, as Iím on the oud bruin tip at the mo, but was not impressed. Reddish brown with a fluffy off white head. Smelled cheesy with notes of malt and brown sugar. Medium bodied with a taste and texture like cough syrup. Sweet at first but becomes watery and washes out, oddly unbalanced.
