COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Ne de la rencontre fortuite dune stout forte et dune fermentation dabricots du Valais qui jamais natteignit lalambic du distillateur auquel elle tait destine, notre Oud Bruin (flamand pour "vieille brune") est une interprtation assez peu orthodoxe de ses cousines belges.
Elle en garde cependant le dlicat quilibre aigre-doux, entre une solide ossature malte assise sur des malts, aux notes caramlises, chocolates, rties et fruites, dans laquelle vient se fondre le vin dabricot avec son acidit lactique, ses notes de cuir et dtable lies aux levures sauvages, et une discrte note dabricot.
La finale est lgrement amre et le tout se droule tout en harmonie sur le palais.
Une bire unique, dune grande buvabilit mais joliment complexe, entre douceur, fruit et acidit. Elle se mariera avec lagneau, le canard, les moules, les crustacs ou des fromages pte molle ou mi-dure.
Srie limite de 1.200 bouteilles de 75cl, 7.2% dalcool/volume, 35 units internationales damertume (IBU).
Avec un grand merci au Journal de Ste-Croix pour laimable mise disposition dun local suffisamment tempr pour la refermentation en bouteille cet hiver!
Sant!

Draft at the Sybarite Pig. Snifter. Pours a muddy brown with thick white head. Aroma was like a porter but with vinegar. Taste was similar. I really didnt like this one from Trois Dame. Medium body, NO carbonation. I didnt like the aftertaste of bitter vinegar.

CanIHave4Beers (4136) - Pouring Bus, Iowa, USA - SEP 12, 2013
Pours a very dark brown with a good head and some lacing on the glass.

The aroma is oaky, with some very light vinegar, plenty of leathery funkiness, and some husky notes.

The flavor is very sour, its got some berry, and some spiciness. Its oaky and vinous at times with a nice bright lemony character. Its drier than most beers of its category, but thats a nice thing, I think.

Thought this one worked pretty well.

PapaSkeetSkeet (1009) - Providence, Rhode Island, USA - AUG 10, 2013
Thin cream-colored head. Mahogany-brown hazy, but the bottom third of the bottle has a huge amount of yeast which will cloud later pours. Aroma is strawberry, sour old wood. Mild earthy, dry (not hot) spice. Body is medium, halfway between syrupy and watery, delayed carbonation onset. Flavor is tart cherry leading in to big dry-wood sourness and light caramel malt sweetness that blends perfectly with the other flavors. Delicious

adamah (214) - California, USA - AUG 9, 2013
The nose is a little musty with some nut and apricot notes. The appearance is an opaque amber color with very little head. The taste is excellent a little on the sweet side but a good amount of tartness and a slightly bitter finish.

PhillyCraft (6448) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 17, 2013
Bottle at share. Poured red with light to medium head. Dont remember if there was lacing left behind. Notes are sour prunes, raisin, vinegar, and cherry barn. Really sour and acidic.

FlacoAlto (4176) - 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.

Bottle [email protected] Festival der Bierkulturen Kln 25/05/2013.
Dried apricot, intense lactic acid, oak vanilla. Chocolate malt smoothness. 35 ibus as a backing choir to a cultured vinegar Oud bruin - pas mal... Plenty of character with a lot of aged/dried/barrel layers interspersed, whilst remaining very drinkable and refreshing = expert brew. Chapeau pour la Suisse romande voor deze Oud Bruin!
