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!

Really sour taste and aroma, packs a bunch and is quite pronounced. A great beer for its style.

UPDATED: FEB 24, 2017 Bottle at Bellwoods. Deep red colour with finely bubbled head. Lovely woody aroma with tart cherry, apricot, maltiness, some sweetish sour notes. Very complex. Flavours of woody cherries, middle is sourness with a touch of malty sweetness and funk, with lingering cherry skin and pit tartness. Lively carbonation. Tasty stuff.

onceblind (9154) - Denver, Colorado, USA - OCT 23, 2016
Dark deep brown under a thin light tan head. Amazing nose thats tart, dark, complex, a touch cocoa and woody, and lightly dark fruity. Crisp and tart flavor thats dark and kinda cocoa-ish, sour, herbal, roasty and very delicious. Pretty nice albeit oxidized. Aged for an unknown amount of time.

Cloudy brown, minimal head. Dark rich cherry, stone fruit. Funky. Pretty sour, some sweetness. Quite vinegary. Lingering acid. Medium to heavier body. Long finish. Good.

thedm (6092) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - JUL 9, 2016
This bottled brew from a bottle shop poured no head or was fully diminished. The body was semi-transparent brown colored with no lacing. The nice aroma was funky farmhouse tart and sour. The flat mouth feel was weakly tingly at the start and at the finish. The funky flavor contained notes of tartness and was sour. Not one that I would likely drink again.

This is what I like my Oud Bruins to taste like. Syrupy, some Worchestershire sauce, and a lingering thick sweetness tempered by some funk. Bought at Beertopia in 2016.

My first brush with Trois Dames and one of the better Oud Bruins Ive gotten to enjoy. Brown pour with a short-lasting head. Aromas of must (as in decay, not wine - thatll come later), funk, earth, hay, dank wood, vinegar, and cherry. Flavors are complex and can be tricky to pinpoint at times. Theres a big vinegar note, but not like you might often experience in a sour beer. It IS acidic, but its got a vinous character thats rich and nearly meaty. Almost like red wine vinegar or balsamic vinegar. Tart cherry taste, too - plenty of rotted and soured qualities to the fruitiness. Its all finished by a dry feel. This Dames got class.

Pours a clear reddish brown color. Aromas of stonefruit, yeast, vinegar, and a touch of wood. Flavor is sour, yeasty, wood, with a tart sour finish.
