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.

teddybeer (3223) - Madrid, SPAIN - APR 11, 2014
On tap @ Irreale (Madrid). Strong reddish colour with an off-white head with good duration and nice lacework. aroma has notes of ripe red fruits, with toasted crumb notes, slightly sweet and good maltiness. Flavor is slightly sourish, high presence of red fruits, creamy and smooth on palate with mild notes of wood. The final is mild sweet with a good maltiness.

BadAprilia1000 (395) - 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 donít 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 (3249) - 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.

Deep red with a foamy head. Aroma of red wine, nuts, caramel, cherries. Taste of cherries, wine, nuts, sweet but easy drinking.

77ships (7023) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - JUL 5, 2013
25 cl. bottle @ home. From Willems. BBF 17/12/2014. Label is in Dutch unlike the Grand Cru which was in English. Pours a very hazy pomegranate chestnut brown with only some beige bubbles for the head. Nose is spoiled red grapes, cheap red wine, wood, sweet jam, molasses and malts. Taste is sweet molasses, varnish, wood, molasses, spoiled red grapes & spoiled cheap red wine, cheap cherry liqueur candy, touch bitter in the back, hint metallic. Reasonable malt & red wine body. Not to different from the Grand Cru in quality which scores much higher here. Still not a fan, tastes like prison-made red wine & also very messy. If I would like to drink crappy wine, I would do just that. Crude but that is how I feel about this.

Ruikt nergens naar. Mooi bier. Smaakt erg vreemd met een rare nasmaak. Niks bijzonders.

Abijen (2379) - ís-Hertogenbosch, NETHERLANDS - JUN 14, 2013
Pours a red beer with a not very long lasting head. Smells a bit sweet. Taste is way to sweet. Little bitter.

vlaamse oude bruin bier met zuur, bijtend aroma en smaak, zeer licht enverfrissend in de beste traditie van de Vlaamse

pinkzambia (1802) - Boise, Idaho, USA - FEB 28, 2013
Bottle: People have rated this low, but I donít think itís that bad. It is a bit acidic after an entire bottle, but some friends also had sips and really liked it. So, itís not the Dutchess! Big deal! There is only one of those my friends. Cloudy brown with a frothy head. Aromas of vinegar and wood. Dry, dry flavors of sweet, green apples and lots of tartness. It has a dry aftertaste of cotton.

fejez (43) - ITALY - JAN 5, 2013
Bottle 25 cl. Dark ruby, with very little head. The sour nose is promising, but it disappears soon. Medium body, very drinkable. A bit astringent.
