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.

JulienHuxley (4317) - Trois-Rivičres, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 24, 2014
Bottle from Willems. Hazy red-brown pour with thin but persistent pale yellow head. Aroma is earthy, mushrooms, light tomato, light on the acidic notes, a bit of oak but no real balsamic or ketchup or cherries. Taste is sweet, woody but not actually acidic, maybe slightly low in the PH but it really just seems to be to keep the sweetness in check, lots of earthy notes, lots of caramel as well. Palate is med bodied with light-med carbonation. Drinkable beer, but off what I expect from an oud red/bruin.

kraddel (4592) - some beerplace, BELGIUM - JUN 23, 2014
Bottle Pours dark brown with red shine . Small , very small white head . Scent is rather sweet, fleshy , oak. Taste is sour, with a sweet back , some oak as well, fleshy . kicks in pretty overpowering but than ends in subtile, sugary-sweet ending . Slightly metallic as well . Decent beer , deserves a better score than the average . But by far not the best in the style .

Syrlig smak och doftar. Man kan säga att det är en syrlig Brown Ale. Mycket angenäm. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Aroma of citrus, apple and red wine. Appears dark red/brown, hazy and almost no head. The taste is medium acidic and lightly sweet. Dry in the aftertaste. A very light body, fizzy carbonation. An "okay" beer.

Swaroga (1813) - Brussels, BELGIUM - APR 30, 2014
25cl butelka. OCZY : przejrzyste o kolorze ciemnego brązu. Piane jest średniej wielkości i ma kolor jasnego beżu. NOS : piwo ma mocne aromaty karmelu, gruszki, śliwek, gotowanych owoców i rabarbaru. Są również aromaty sernika, drewna, dymu i goździków. USTA : piwo jest słodkie o nutach śliwek suszonych, ciasta i innych owoców przetworzonych. Delikatnie kwaśne o również owocowej barwie. Cierpkość jest obecna ale gdzieś daleko w tyle gdyż piwo jest przede wszystkim słodkie aż do końca. Ale nie za słodkie i chwała mu za to. ODCZUCIA : jest to jedno z lepszych ale zarazem bardziej słodkich Oude Bruin jakie piłem. Jest to totalne przeciwieństwo modnych bomb chmielowych. Prawdziwie piwny underground. Piwo dla hipsterów :p OCENA : smak : 7/10 pijalność : 6/10

BadAprilia1000 (378) - Sevierville, Tennessee, USA - JAN 20, 2014
Pours a dark brown with little to no head. Very, faint aroma with faint sour and acidic nose. Also a slight funky note in the aroma. Taste is slightly sweet, with a very faint sour aftertaste. You don’t get the sour kind of shock most of them give your taste buds initially. Very mellow and sub par for my standards of a sour. I probably not be trying this one again.

maekchu (2759) - Hirakata, JAPAN - NOV 23, 2013
Bottle. Sour fruit, rude barny notes, slight sewer, all behind a lot of dark sugar. Dark tea color. Harsh tart fruit initial, slight oxidation, grapes and overripe melon, and a touch of chocolate. Thin-medium body with some astringency. Complex aroma. Flavors are mild but quite exceptional.

ThreeCats (684) - ISRAEL - AUG 19, 2013
