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!

FlacoAlto (3810) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - JUN 9, 2013
A steady pour into my teku glass produces a pale brown tinged, one-finger thick, tan colored head. The beer is a concentrated brown color that shows opaque when held up to the light. The aroma smells of tart, concentrated raisins, ample prune juice, and some salted dried plum notes. There is some slight toasted grain character, a sort of nutty, light sherry like note, and a touch of concord grape juice. As the beer warms up the toasted malt character starts to lean towards toasted oak notes

The beer has a light tartness, and a sort of savory, almost smoky character to it. The beer is rich on the malt side of the spectrum, with lots of aged malt character; toasted nut flavors, light sherry, aged caramel, a rich toasted brown grain character, and some rounded, toasted oak like flavors. The body has some viscosity and texture to it, this is certainly not on the light side of the spectrum, but is not overly heavy either. The tartness here melds really well with the nutty oxidation and the rich malt character; it is lactic and perhaps just a touch acetic in character, but this last is fairly subtle.

This is a nice, rounded, sort of soft, but still rich example of an Oude Bruin. Quite enjoyable, and a great way to finish off an evening.

cards04 (2114) - Steinbach, Manitoba, CANADA - APR 30, 2015
Not worth the price tag. Which wasn’t displayed BTW. Pours a dark iced tea colour. Sharp metallic vinegar aromas, red wine, cherries. Sour and oaky. A touch of sweetness. The finish is a little thin and watery.

sunevdj (3355) - Copenhagen OE, DENMARK - APR 9, 2015
Bottle of Grande Dame at olbutikken. Pours a hazyish brown with a small off-white head. Medium sourness with aromas of cask wood and tiny spicy hints. Medium bodied. Soft carbonation. Dry and slightly sour finish.

zach8270 (3779) - Henrietta, New York, USA - APR 1, 2015
(draft @ Avenue Pub - New Orleans, LA) Dark brown pour with a thin tan head. Fruity aroma with a definite funk undertone. Big funky and tart flavor at the start with a light and subtle fruit sweetness under that. Dry, tart and funky finish. Quite nice.

Vignale (2383) - Malmö, SWEDEN - MAR 31, 2015
Flaska från SB. Brunmurrig vätska som drar lätt åt rött. Lätt doft av grönmögelost och när temperaturen stiger allt mer aprikos. Tydlig aprikossmak, skal, fruktkött och kärna, söt och syrlig, mjuk, lite kärv träig och med en lätt grönmögelost ton i bakgrunden. Riktigt trevlig.

[ keg ][ 12oz ][ @OLaR ][ $9][ snifter ][ 03.23.15 ]
jet black, puffy cream head gone quick. Tootsie roll, dark cherry and chocolate, thin and lightly rooty, slight roast-citrus contrast but mellow and balanced if faintly sweet. But of olive lingering.

Flaska från SB. Smak och doft av aprikos, aprikosskal, aprikoskärnor, blå- eller grönmögelost, äppelcidervinäger, trä och ladugård. Stor syrlighet, lagom sötma, fruktig, kärv beska.

Sour throughout this beer from the aroma to the last sip. Fruity sour aroma with some cherries. The flavor is sour too with fruit. Nice and dry.
