COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Scopey (6321) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 29, 2012
Bottle at home. It pours deep ruby-brown, with a small beige head. The nose is faintly acidic, wood, red wine vinegar, tangy berry and light jamminess. The taste is tangy, wood, varnish, light vanilla, green apple, sweet red berry, vinous, caramel and some astringency, with a dry, earthy finish. Medium body and moderate, prickly carbonation. I prefer my oud bruins with some more sour tanginess.

NordicV (1095) - Malmö, Sweden, SWEDEN - JUL 9, 2012
Brunröd grulig öl med ett beige skum. Doftar torkad frukt och lite trä. I smaken är det mycket bränt socker. Saknar nästan helt surheten jag väntat mig.

Benjii (3049) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUN 5, 2012
In bottle. Pours a dark amber - brown colour with a fair beige head. Aroma of light pickled onion sourness with caramel, Ovaltine, oak and alcohol. Similar flavours and surprisingly bitter with mild carbonation and an oily mouth-feel. Quite dry and interesting.

prawlie (1110) - Berkshire, ENGLAND - MAR 21, 2012
Bottle into own long glass at De Krakele in Brugge. Red brown with short lived creamy head. Woody, slightly yeasty ale, light red fruitiness. Refreshing yet a litte dry in the aftertaste. Aroma is acidic, sour and vinious. Decent

jfb (3702) - Freising, GERMANY - MAR 7, 2012
(bottle) pours a darkest ruby-brown colour with a frothy light beige head. aroma of grain, red grapes, candy floss, melted butter and canned peaches, slightly composty. flavour is mostly the same, underattenuated, lots of sticky brown sugar and butter, with an inappropriate herbal-hoppy bitter finish. medium-bodied with average carbonation.

Bottled from 124 rabbit club. Poured a dark brown with little head. Not very sour for a sour ale but I liked it.

lassem (652) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - OCT 7, 2011
25cl bottle from Dranken Geers in Belgium - fantastic store by the way. The pour is very dark brown topped with a edgy off white head. The nose is not sour as ecspected but more malty sweet with notes of candid sugar topped with an odd metallic aroma. A very thin palate with a highly carbonated feeling that blures the taste. The taste is still sweet at most - not sour at all. It reminds me of a danish dark classic pilsner. Still I get some metallic notes and with a slightly bitter finish - again not sour as described above. Quite disappointing.
