COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Née de la rencontre fortuite d’une stout forte et d’une fermentation d’abricots du Valais qui jamais n’atteignit l’alambic du distillateur auquel elle était destinée, notre Oud Bruin (flamand pour "vieille brune") est une interprétation assez peu orthodoxe de ses cousines belges.
Elle en garde cependant le délicat équilibre aigre-doux, entre une solide ossature maltée assise sur des malts, aux notes caramélisées, chocolatées, rôties et fruitées, dans laquelle vient se fondre le vin d’abricot avec son acidité lactique, ses notes de cuir et d’étable liées aux levures sauvages, et une discrète note d’abricot.
La finale est légèrement amère et le tout se déroule tout en harmonie sur le palais.
Une bière unique, d’une grande buvabilité mais joliment complexe, entre douceur, fruité et acidité. Elle se mariera avec l’agneau, le canard, les moules, les crustacés ou des fromages à pâte molle ou mi-dure.
Série limitée de 1.200 bouteilles de 75cl, 7.2% d’alcool/volume, 35 unités internationales d’amertume (IBU).
Avec un grand merci au Journal de Ste-Croix pour l’aimable mise à disposition d’un local suffisamment tempéré pour la refermentation en bouteille cet hiver!
Santé!

hopscotch (11051) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - NOV 4, 2010
Bottle… Tower of Power Sour Hour Deel TweeThis beer rocks!… Cloudy, very dark mahogany ale with a small, creamy, white head. The complex, acidic, funky nose also presents lesser elements of chocolate and caramel layered upon a subdued herbal blend of roots - sassafras, licorice and sarsaparilla. Full-bodied with a milky mouthfeel and dancing carbonation. The flavor offers a good bit of sourness, but healthy bitterness as well. Lightly tart, dry finish. World class wild ale!

Bottle, shared with Parksy and Grippitis. Very hazy medium brown with a lively white head. Sour pittted fruits up front, doughy caramel malts lend body and sweetness. As yeasty and malty as it is sour. I liked it.
