COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Née de la rencontre fortuite d’une stout forte et d’une fermentation d’abricots du Valais qui jamais n’atteignit l’alambic du distillateur auquel elle était destinée, notre Oud Bruin (flamand pour "vieille brune") est une interprétation assez peu orthodoxe de ses cousines belges.
Elle en garde cependant le délicat équilibre aigre-doux, entre une solide ossature maltée assise sur des malts, aux notes caramélisées, chocolatées, rôties et fruitées, dans laquelle vient se fondre le vin d’abricot avec son acidité lactique, ses notes de cuir et d’étable liées aux levures sauvages, et une discrète note d’abricot.
La finale est légèrement amère et le tout se déroule tout en harmonie sur le palais.
Une bière unique, d’une grande buvabilité mais joliment complexe, entre douceur, fruité et acidité. Elle se mariera avec l’agneau, le canard, les moules, les crustacés ou des fromages à pâte molle ou mi-dure.
Série limitée de 1.200 bouteilles de 75cl, 7.2% d’alcool/volume, 35 unités internationales d’amertume (IBU).
Avec un grand merci au Journal de Ste-Croix pour l’aimable mise à disposition d’un local suffisamment tempéré pour la refermentation en bouteille cet hiver!
Santé!

GT2 (8372) - San Diego County, California, USA - JAN 10, 2011
750mL at DC Elite. Pours a hazy mahogany with a small, tan head. Aroma of cinnamon, big spice, spicy red wine vinegar, Flemish red complexities like spicy oak, chocolate ganache. Taste is dry, bland, chalky, tart but not sour, metals, lemon, cardboard. Softly carbonated on the palate. Too much lemon tart and not enough Flemish red oomph.

Pour is beautiful dirt brown with weak head and strong sticky lacing. Flavor is bold sour with strong Bret and mild lacto. There are notes ofmild grass as well. Finish is a bit sour but dry for the style. Lingers on the back of the tongue. Overall I loved this beer!

bhensonb (10934) - Woodland, California, USA - NOV 25, 2010
Capped 750 from South Bay Drugs. Pours really dark reddish brown with a foamy, clingy beige head. The aroma is strongly sour and oaky. Med body; frothy carb. Flavor is sour reddish fruit. Way cool! Raspberry? Naah. Cherry? Could be kriek. Sour? Oh yeah!!!!! Really nice drink!
