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!

PhillyCraft (6779) - 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!

BBB63 (6557) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - MAY 22, 2013
750ml bottle served in tulip: Aged over two years... pours a murky brownish hue with ruby highlights topped by a fading head and not much lace. The aroma is soured cherries and apricots, roasted and caramelized malts, horse blanket and cheese. Heavy on the Acetobacter and Brettanomyces with a layer of malt and oak found as well. This has a brilliant balance but does have a slight band-aid nature upon the finish that would be my only criticism. Dry yet watery... yeah you know what I mean... soft carbonation. I like this but is it an example of a well aged bottle or a example of a very good beer in general?

jbruner (4455) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - APR 25, 2013
UPDATED: SEP 16, 2013 Pours a murky reddish brown from the bottle with no real head or lacing. Aroma is caramel and dark toffee notes, almost bba qualities. Taste is sour chocolate and cherries, earthy funk. Really odd, but pretty damn good. Even better on tap!

jaghana (5833) - Strasbourg (Alsace), FRANCE - MAR 27, 2013
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.
