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!

The crown cap on my bottle came off w/ nary a pop. Seems like there might be a bottling problem at this brewery. The world must know so I will rate it nonetheless. It pours a murky brown orange and headless. Nose is raisin malt and it is a slightly sweet beer overall. It is also very acidic in a sort of malt vinnegar kind of way. There is not much nuance to it just sourness and a lingering astringent taste in the finish. I found this enjoyable after a fashion but what I got is not really what I’m looking for in an Oud Bruin.
