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!

sebletitje (9909) - Enghien, BELGIUM - FEB 23, 2011
Bouteille 75cl. Rousse fonce, mousse blanche paisse. Arme dgage une fine note dacidit typique de ce style flamand. Malt est lger et prsente une fine couche de malt grill qui reste un peu en retrait. Cela laisse ample place au vin dabricot pour se distinguer. On peu clairement y voir la finesse de cette approche des styles entre la stout et cette oud bruin qui sont en parfaite symbiose. En bouche, on a tout ce que lon attend de ce style avec l encore la touche du matre brasseur qui a su mlanger ce got abricot avec un malt la fois grill mais aussi lgrement chocolat. Cela laisse un fini qui est finement acidul avec des notes de levure tout en conservant un aspect sympa de vin et de fruits; abricots.

vyvvy (6310) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - FEB 21, 2011
Pours dark brown with a reddish hue and s smallish tan head. The aroma has acidity that is lactic and citric as well as having red fruits, vinegar, oak and vanilla. A mix of sourness and creaminess here. Medium crisp body with underscored carbonation and an overall refreshing feeling to it. The flavor starts with the aroma traits along with iron and minerals. The acidity is quite high with citric and lactic acid taste & a sharp lemon sting. The finish has some more minerals, black cherry and is quite buggy and dry. Nice sour ale.

brokensail (16347) - Dublin, California, USA - FEB 17, 2011
A: This one pours a pretty dark brown color with lots of reddish notes and a finger of tan head. S: Smells really quite nice. A touch of vinegar, but solid oak aromas and a bit of grass and wet hay. A light caramel sweetness and a lilttle bit of fruit notes. Some nice oxidation to it. T: The flavor is not quite as good. There is a bit of a sweet, grape Jolly Rancher type flavor to it. Slightly tart with some vinegar and a decent amount of oak. Not quite as much of the grass and hay notes that were present on the nose. M: The body is medium with a moderate carbonation. D: I liked the nose quite a bit, but the flavor was definitely a let down. Good, but not worth the rather hefty price tag.

GT (9982) - Oceanside, California, USA - JAN 10, 2011
750mL at DC Elite. Pours a hazy mahogany with a small, tan head. Aroma of cinnamon, big spice, spicy red wine vinegar, Flemish red complexities like spicy oak, chocolate ganache. Taste is dry, bland, chalky, tart but not sour, metals, lemon, cardboard. Softly carbonated on the palate. Too much lemon tart and not enough Flemish red oomph.

Pour is beautiful dirt brown with weak head and strong sticky lacing. Flavor is bold sour with strong Bret and mild lacto. There are notes ofmild grass as well. Finish is a bit sour but dry for the style. Lingers on the back of the tongue. Overall I loved this beer!
