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!

Frank (4061) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 27, 2014
The crown cap on my bottle came off w/ nary a pop. Seems like there might be a bottling problem at this brewery. The world must know so I will rate it nonetheless. It pours a murky brown orange and headless. Nose is raisin malt and it is a slightly sweet beer overall. It is also very acidic in a sort of malt vinnegar kind of way. There is not much nuance to it just sourness and a lingering astringent taste in the finish. I found this enjoyable after a fashion but what I got is not really what Im looking for in an Oud Bruin.
