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!

Koelschtrinker (9999) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - MAY 4, 2011
UPDATED: MAY 28, 2013 Leicht säuerlicher Antrunk mit trockener Beinote, die Säuerlichkeit ist angeehm gesetzt. Stimmig, wenig fruchtig. Abseits der Säuerlichkeit wenig aromatisch, etwas getreidig. Nettes erfrischendes Bier ohne große Aromenschübe. Im Abgang sogar etwas scharf, eine minimale vergorene Fruchtigkeit ist vorhanden. Danke an DerDoppelbock für das Bier. 8/8/9/9/7/9

Bov (9245) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - AUG 19, 2009
my swiss beer number 1000 ! - courtesy of Laurent Mousson - it pours a cloudy reddish-brown colour with almost no foam left (only some shy beige traces subsist); sourish nose of vinegar, prunes and apricot; vinous; sweet and sour with a moderate but regular carbonation; decent malt backbone; the finish is quite dry with long sourish notes and deep fruity tones; well-brewed, very enjoyable and to the point: business as usual from Trois Dames
