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.

deyholla (9997) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JUN 13, 2010
Bottle. Poured a dark red/amber with a gray film head. Aroma was quite sweet with candied sugar sweet berries and a bit of an underlying tart note. Flavor had a combination candied sugar and tart cherries that seemed somewhat off.

wimpie133 (381) - Brugge, BELGIUM - JUN 13, 2010
Bottle, 25 cl. Brown-reddish beer with small white head that disappears rather quickly. Aroma is sweet, light fruity and oaky, some sourness noticeable. Taste is sweet at first, comebined with a refreshing sourness around it and also the typcal light fruity and oak taste of an "Oud Bruin". Pallet stays however only at the basics, with being exceptional.

bhensonb (14092) - Woodland, California, USA - APR 26, 2010
Bottle shared by Marcus. Hazy brown pour with small chunks. Mild dark fruit aroma with a suggestion of sour. Flavor is a bit like fruity cola. Finishes lightly sweet with the hope of sour (never fulfilled).

marcus (9138) - Sacramento, California, USA - APR 26, 2010
Pours dark brown with lots of dark floaties and a thin disappearing beige head. There is a moderately frangrant smoked malt aroma. It’s too sweet for an oud bruin, but there is a substantial dark malt presence.

pivnizub (10139) - Bochum, Porúří, GERMANY - APR 5, 2010
Bottle: Clear, some floaties visible, ruby-amber coloured; light to moderate fruity-sourish nose with a touch of aceto balsamico, caramel included; light to moderate sourish-sweetish flavour, light bodied; caramel, maybe artificial sweeteners and a tinge of vinegar in the short sweetish-sourish finish. Pleasant, easy-gouing.....

oldrtybastrd (5003) - Fort Walton Beach, Florida, USA - APR 1, 2010
Pours a reddish brown color. Aromas of dark fruit, yeast, and a touch of wood. Flavor is tart, yeast, wood, not as sour as I would like. Kinda Blah.

Travlr (21440) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - JAN 7, 2010
Bottle at Strijdershuis in Bruges, as we drank our way through the Strubbe range. Dark maroon and brown with a big fluffy white head that settles slowly to leave a delicate lacing. Aroma of dark fruit and roasted malts. Flavors of light smoke and toffee with sourness from the middle to the finish. Decent enough body. Good example of the style, pleasant and drinkable.

BVery (9574) - Plymouth, Minnesota, USA - DEC 30, 2009
Bottle (small sample). Brown pour. Complex nose - main element is fruit. Taste starts out fruit then moves to something else - kind of funky and hard to describe.

madmitch76 (22102) - , Essex, ENGLAND - NOV 11, 2009
10th May 2008. A brown beer that reminds of Duchesse Du Bourgogne but is much less sour and really quite sweet. Soft mid finish with a hint of sweet coca cola.
