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!

Bottle 75cl, from Allen thanks. An amber dark beer with low head, nose is nice and typically on oude bruin with vinegar, acidity and this kind of burnt wood. Aroma is a bit more dry and acid than usual oude bruin, notes of chocolate, cherry, tart, vinegar, burnt wood / fruit.

UPDATED: FEB 26, 2013 Bottle courtesy of Dennis during his going away party at Blind Tiger with Linh, Max, Caroline and Will. Pours a deep murky brown body with thin off white lacing, Aroma is super fishy - literally like fish, fish oil, Vinegar, sour dark fruit and light funk. Mouthfeel is medium and tart with notes of tart dark fruits, prune, raisin, light funk and vinegar. Very weird.

Huhzubendah (2399) - Washington DC, USA - DEC 6, 2012
Bottle shared by Darrell. Thanks man! The beer is dark, chestnut brown with hints of ruby. The beige head is thin and fades almost immediately. The aroma offers oak, cherries, sweet cherry juice. The flavor brings a blend of sweet and tart cherries, along with some oak. Tannic throughout. Low carbonation. Slightly puckering finish. A good sipping beer, similar to a nice wine.
