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!

Holmen1 (4694) - Stavanger, NORWAY - JUN 26, 2014
Fra fat på Cafe Baran, Bergen, sammen med Børge: lett uklar mørk brun med kortvarig off white sum. Aroma av sure bær, vanilje (eikefat?), aprikos, malt. Deilig balanse mellom surhet, bitterhet og sødme i smaken, hvor den fine surheten naturlig nok dominerer. Tørr avslutning gjør at jeg gjerne griper til glasset igjen.

Last hit of this beer before it tapped @ Local 44 in Philly. Very deep red-brown pour, medium foamy tan head. Wonderful aroma of tart and tropical fruits, with hay notes. Very tart apple-ish flavor. Crisp and sharp.

On tap at Baran. As Grande Dame Oud Bruin. One of the sexiest beer labels I’ve seen. Really cute. The beer pours an unclear dark brown body and a small, beige head. Vinegar, wood, caramel sauce, some dark berries and some cellar hints. The flavor has a bitterness I didn’t expect and I don’t think is suitable. Dried fruits, caramel hints and vinegar in the flavor. Dark berries. Semi-dry and with a nice little tartness. Lasting finish. Tasteful and pleasant, sure a nice try on an oud bruin. 140616
