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.

25cl bottle. Light redbrown from brewery Strubbe. Good to drink, and the look simply is great. The aroma hints at dry fruits, red berries. The taste is sugary with bitter and sour notes. But the sourness does not prevail. A nice beverage - yet I love my sour ales a bit stronger.

Alengrin (4604) - BELGIUM - AUG 22, 2014
UPDATED: MAR 27, 2016 Classic but low-profile oud bruin, deep reddish brown with off-white head, soft and creamy character, malt sweetness, very fruity with soft lactic acid touch, but perhaps a bit thin. Did lead to the Ichtegemse Grand Cru, a more ambitious version. Good session beer, as a decent oud bruin ought to be.

Van de grand cru van hen ben ik fan, maar de oud bruin vond ik niet zo lekker.

JulienHuxley (5640) - Trois-Rivières, 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.

Dark brown colour, beige foam. Medium carbonation. Sweet/sour taste with light vinous notes and some vinegar. Also caramel and light mettalic aftertaste. Easy drinkable and refreshing, bit thin.

kraddel (6372) - some beerplace, BELGIUM - JUN 23, 2014
UPDATED: DEC 27, 2015 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 . Rerate. Pretty much in complex and sweet , way less good than i remember it being. Lowering the score from the previous 3,8 ( was this perhaps for the grand cru and misrated ??? )

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