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!

thome50 (1294) - Morro Bay via Orange County, California, USA - NOV 10, 2012
Bottle shared tonight by Nick, I think. Pours a deep black with minimal tan head. Aroma is concord grape, blue cheese, rind. Taste is very grape forward with some light apricot fuzz and some cheese elements. Hay is in there too but not pronounced until it warms. The mouthfeel on this is great, again, i really dislike most imperial stouts as a rule but love stout based sours. This one is there with a more wine like texture and mouthfeel. This one was not great at first but as it warmed was rather nice and interesting. Would revisit.

radagast83 (7906) - Alexandria, Virginia, USA - NOV 1, 2012
On tap at Churchkeys Night of the Living Ales event. This one poured a dark copper color with a wispy off-white head. Aroma was funky apricots, with some brandy barrel character to it. A touch of tart, funky character, apricots and brandy is in there. A nice way to end the night at this funky sour-fest.

craftycarl21 (2338) - Seattle, Washington, USA - OCT 31, 2012
Draft at Churchkey. Deep purple walnut pour with bubbly film on the edges. Nose has hints of nice tart dark fruit and vinous acidity, but marred by veg diacetyl character. Butterscotch ruins all of the sour aspects. Thank god it mostly blows off after a couple minutes so still drinkable. Ok.

mrhoppy (1288) - Santa Clara, California, USA - SEP 30, 2012
A rather mild sour. Very drinkable nut if your looking for a kick you in the face sour like Cascade then pass on this. It is very well made though.

alobar (3730) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 26, 2012
Dark brown pour with reddish hints. No head. Aroma of cherry, barnyard funk, vinegar, and caramel. Flavor is sweet upfront with caramel and cherry, but quickly turns to tartness with vinegar and funk tartness. Overall, a very nice beer!

Pouring at the Night of the Funk. Pours a hazed amber brown with a thin white head. Light cheesy notes, soft cocoa, chocolate. Acetic right away but gentle and fruity. Acid, fruit, malt, chewy tannins, long and fruity. Cocoa, soft fruit. Lingering acid, faintly acetic. Nice.
