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.

kerenmk (3483) - 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.

Une bière assez banale tant au nez qu’en bouche, l’ensemble manque de puissance et de complexité.

Dark liquid with red shining. Small head. Heavy and fruity, interesting aroma. Medium body, no carbonisation. Taste is sour and sweet.

UXO (1003) - 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 (3025) - 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!

Hamirubi (369) - Waarschoot, BELGIUM - MAR 26, 2015
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 (3686) - BELGIUM - AUG 22, 2014
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 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.
