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. Ichtegem’s goes great with shrimp or can also be used to marinate various kinds of meat in.

YogiBeera (2534) - New Jersey, USA - SEP 8, 2004
UPDATED: OCT 23, 2005 Dark brown, red color, spare head leaving laces. Light raspberry-vinegar, malt sour nose. Kind of sweet malt and honey taste - a bit stale and actually a bit weak..

maupie (927) - Roosendaal, NETHERLANDS - APR 10, 2004
This beer has a red/brown body - hue apperance and a fine light white scum collar. I have drunk the beer from the bottle and it had a low carbonic acid. The initial flavor taste is acid.

rauchbier (3645) - Isle Of Beer, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - FEB 25, 2004
Bottled. Ruby red brown, thin white head and low condition. First aroma was sour apple, soon taken over by stilton and caramel. In the mouth it was like sucking artificial sweetner tablets with a slight woody tartness struggling to make its presence felt. Unflattering dry saccharine notes in the aftertaste.

Hildigöltur (5103) - København, DENMARK - JAN 14, 2004
5.5%ABV. Fruity and acidic aroma. Good balance between sweetness and sourness. Metallic. Refreshing.

MartinKubert (862) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JAN 14, 2004
Sour aroma. Nice light brown/toffee color. Sweet malty caramel in start, some bitterness in the finish. Fresh and fruity. A bit sweet in the palate.

Ungstrup (29988) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JAN 14, 2004
A red beer with a fine beige head though fast disappering. The aroma is sweet with caramel notes. The flavor is sweet and slightly sour combined with notes of raisins and red currants.

bierkoning (10873) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - OCT 22, 2003
5,5% on the label. Yoghurt and caramel aroma. A good deal of milky sourness. Strong karnemelk (soured up milk with lactic bacteriae) flavor. Some cherry. Not too well balanced, but in fact a good example of a Flemish brown ale.

Shag (2655) - Chattanooga, Tennessee, USA - JUL 27, 2003
Appearance is brown with almost no head. Aroma is sour apples. Flavor is sour fruit mainly apples. It tastes fairly close to a cider. Palate was a little thin and tart. This is not very complex but I enjoyed it.

CapFlu (4719) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 9, 2003
(Bottle) Copper body with a light beige head. Tinny aroma. Acidic, bitter flavour. Quick finish with linguring sourness.

MartinT (8351) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 8, 2003
A whispering sourness envelopes roasted nuts...Muddy cherries end up as dry cookies...Not the best example of the style but a nice introduction...
