Anderson Valley Oude Bruijn


Brewed by Anderson Valley Brewing Company
Boonville, California USA
Style: Sour Red/Brown | Ratings: 0 | Special Seasonal | Alcohol: 5%
Based on the Flemish classic (Oud Bruijn) this very complex beer has many flavor facets. Brewed using redwood tips and the rare New Zealand Nelson Sauvin hop, this lively red ale is aged in wine, bourbon, brandy, and port barrels before blending. The final blend also includes a small amount of our Grand Cru (a blend of both Brother David’s Belgian ales aged in wine barrels). The resulting beer is very complex medium-bodied beer with a vinous character from the wine barrels and spicy notes from both the redwood tips and the Nelson Sauvin hops. Combined with a light sourness from the bacterial fermentation, these myriad flavors are underlined by a smooth, round Belgian character from the Grand Cru – extremely complex yet very drinkable.
