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!

hopscotch (10931) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - NOV 4, 2010
Bottle Tower of Power Sour Hour Deel Twee This 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!

deyholla (10835) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - NOV 19, 2011
Bottle thanks to someone. Pours a hazy amber with a grey head that dissipates quickly to the edges. Aroma has a good amount of tar cherries with a bit of sweet grains and acid. Flavor has tart cherries with some acid and a hint of funk.

adnielsen (10580) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - MAY 22, 2011
Bottle @ home. Pours a deep brown appearance with a small tan head. Spicy, almost chai-like aroma with a mild sourness. Medium sourness, fairly spicy, minty, all spice, red fruits, apricot, malty flavor. Spicy, medium sour finish. A very interesting, unique beer that I could imagine enjoying with Christmas dinner.

DocLock (10301) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 9, 2014
Bottle shared at Craft Ale House. Poured turbid reddish brown with khaki head. Nose was tart cherry fruit, funky yeasty malt. Tasted tart, lactic, funky, with cherry notes, yeastiness in the finish, and a high complexity.

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.

DuffMan (9920) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - MAR 2, 2014
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.
