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!

Draft - Soured dark malts, cherry and wood. Jet black with a rich light brown head. Chocolate, cherry and nice tartness. Really nice.

rondphoto (4335) - Lakeside Park, Kentucky, USA - NOV 10, 2015
bottle @ Party Source / Bellevue KY --- Cloudy brown color, heavy beige head that slowly drops to a cover, a few lace dots. Aroma of sour grain and sour fruit. Taste is both tart and sour grain that adds a little berry and prune on the swallow, maintaining the sour through a full-bodied, lingering finish. An excellent example of an Oud Bruin.

Tap at CBF. Some saison aroma, but lots of bruin. Nice sour taste, and quite dry. Beautiful!

Gription79 (2883) - Bountiful, Utah, USA - JUL 20, 2015
Poured from a 750ml bottle. There is a big apricot character, dried apricot. The acidity is balanced against the maltiness. A very interesting interpretation of the style.

edgallow (3976) - nashville, Tennessee, USA - JUL 18, 2015

ClubGonzo (5607) - Bergen, NORWAY - JUL 15, 2015
Bottle. Pours a deep rust-hued brown body with a small off-white head. Nose is raisins, mild balsamic, dark fruits and hints of wood, apple vinegar and rose water. Taste is sour lactic tones, leather, balsamic, raisins and hints of lemon juice, grains and apricot. Medium body and high, near-fizzy carbonation. Original and rather nice, though somehow not quite my cup of tea.

krumbum (1099) - truckee, California, USA - JUL 6, 2015
Smells like sour figs. Chestnut brown with a light brown red head. Surprisingly woody with an underlying tart. Dry woody rolls to a charcoal roast carried on a tart platter.

shigadeyo (3672) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUN 20, 2015
6/19/2015: Grand Dame Oud Bruin... Aroma has brown sugar, berry, red wine, hint of vinegar; red brown color; flavor is acidic and funky with undertones of red berries, currant, cocoa powder, cherry, oak, red wine vinegar, and caramelized malt; Medium bodu, very carbonated (too much); interesting, good, seems fairly typical of the style.

JoeMcPhee (9426) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 18, 2015
Deep brown pour the nose is very acetic and tart. A bit of light cherry and some nice fruit. Bright and a little bit woody. Really rich and tasty.
