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.

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.

maekchu (3460) - 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.

Shag (2839) - Chattanooga, Tennessee, USA - JUL 27, 2003
Appearance is brown with almost no head. Aroma is sour apples. Flavor is sour fruit mainly apples. It tastes fairly close to a cider. Palate was a little thin and tart. This is not very complex but I enjoyed it.

330ml bottle. Pours a reddish brown almost light black colour with a rich creamy tan head. Balsamic vinegar aroma that grabs your attention with some sour cherries mixed in. Smooth and mellow flavours that are almost port like and swirl around thye mouth. Not sour but certainly not sweet.

Swaroga (2106) - Gdańsk, POLAND - APR 30, 2014
25cl butelka. OCZY : przejrzyste o kolorze ciemnego brązu. Piane jest średniej wielkości i ma kolor jasnego beżu. NOS : piwo ma mocne aromaty karmelu, gruszki, śliwek, gotowanych owoców i rabarbaru. Są również aromaty sernika, drewna, dymu i goździków. USTA : piwo jest słodkie o nutach śliwek suszonych, ciasta i innych owoców przetworzonych. Delikatnie kwaśne o również owocowej barwie. Cierpkość jest obecna ale gdzieś daleko w tyle gdyż piwo jest przede wszystkim słodkie aż do końca. Ale nie za słodkie i chwała mu za to. ODCZUCIA : jest to jedno z lepszych ale zarazem bardziej słodkich Oude Bruin jakie piłem. Jest to totalne przeciwieństwo modnych bomb chmielowych. Prawdziwie piwny underground. Piwo dla hipsterów :p OCENA : smak : 7/10 pijalność : 6/10

Bottled (my Belgian rating #700). Deep reddish brown colour with brown foamy head. Aroma is fruits, earth and some acidic notes. Flavour is really sour malts, fruity hops and licorace. Quite pleasant and wellbalanced brew. Could be a bit more sour.
