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.

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.

Icedwarf (1312) - Etten-Leur, NETHERLANDS - AUG 28, 2016
Roodbruin bier met weinig schuim. Smaak is fris zuur en fruitig met iets van bramen en bessen.

bartlebier (3507) - Belchium im Biersgau, GERMANY - MAR 5, 2016
75cl bottle (vintage?) kindly shared by Bierhandlung in the aftermath of Bier mit Stil 2: Saison. - Oldschool oud bruin sessioner keeping the brakes on most parameters of the style, going for watered down mulled wine to go with seafood: tannic red wine notes and light oak peices by red balsamics, surface lacto, some cherry and Lotus speculaas. Rougher edges in the lacto. A time capsule to early 90s Belgian beer & weekday food culture, in an accessible low profile beer. Porbably one of the better Strubbe beers.

biirusaikou (2585) - - JAN 13, 2016
Bottle at Lao Lao. Overripe red fruit and sweet caramel, grape and sugar, oscillates from sour to sweet on the palate. Fairly tasty stuff but a bit unbalanced and heavy, definitely a difficult style to nail.

kerenmk (4246) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - NOV 17, 2015
Bottle sample at a tasting at Alexei and Raphaela’s. Thanks Yoav. Murky brown with a tan ring. Baby puke, lactic, a little rotten but all in all faint aroma. Delicate funk and vinous in the mouth. Full body, delicate fizz, a little grape juice finish.

Ysok02 (1054) - MOns, BELGIUM - NOV 1, 2015
Une bière assez banale tant au nez qu’en bouche, l’ensemble manque de puissance et de complexité.

Wixie (406) - BELGIUM - AUG 10, 2015
Dark liquid with red shining. Small head. Heavy and fruity, interesting aroma. Medium body, no carbonisation. Taste is sour and sweet.

UXO (1527) - CANADA - JUL 23, 2015
Appearance: slightly hazy deep amber with a short tan head diminishing rapidly to a thin skim, minimal lacing. (3/5) Aroma: muted, red berries, wood (oak), brown sugar. (6/10) Taste: moderate sweet, mild bitter, mild tart. (6/10) Palate: medium body, moderate carbonation, slightly tart finish. (3/5) Extremely mild oud bruin, almost no sour at all. Pleasant and mild, but a bit of a letdown, if I’m honest - I was looking forward to face-puckering tartness, and that just isn’t here. (12/20)

SirLimpsalot (3817) - SWEDEN - APR 18, 2015
@ Basunen 15-4-17: tydlig syrlig doft med toner av trä och lite garderob. Smaken är lagom syrlig med toner av vete, korn, röd frukt och fat. En fyllig trevlig sak. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone ---- Soberness not garanteed!
