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!

Huhzubendah (3698) - Washington DC, USA - DEC 6, 2012
Bottle shared by Darrell. Thanks man! The beer is dark, chestnut brown with hints of ruby. The beige head is thin and fades almost immediately. The aroma offers oak, cherries, sweet cherry juice. The flavor brings a blend of sweet and tart cherries, along with some oak. Tannic throughout. Low carbonation. Slightly puckering finish. A good sipping beer, similar to a nice wine.
