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!

Peregrinari (148) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - DEC 25, 2010
Pour is beautiful dirt brown with weak head and strong sticky lacing. Flavor is bold sour with strong Bret and mild lacto. There are notes ofmild grass as well. Finish is a bit sour but dry for the style. Lingers on the back of the tongue. Overall I loved this beer!

thornecb (5914) - Marblehead, Massachusetts, USA - JUL 19, 2011
Pours deep brown into a snifter. Off-white head with little retention recedes to hug rim. Sour pit fruit aromas. Sour cherry, cranberry and raspberry from front to back. Lasting dry and tart finish. Nice.

4.1
ApisAles (1575) - Greenbelt, Maryland, USA - SEP 8, 2012
Ruby brown hazy pour with a light brown head. Aroma is tart, sour cherries, dark fruit, malt, really nice tart complex nose. Flavor is the same. A little mouth puckering at first but then a good earthy dark fruit and cherry backbone. Nicely malty and sweet and tart. Good beer.

bartlebier (3982) - Belchium im Biersgau, GERMANY - MAY 27, 2013
Bottle [email protected] Festival der Bierkulturen Köln 25/05/2013.
Dried apricot, intense lactic acid, oak vanilla. Chocolate malt smoothness. 35 ibus as a backing choir to a cultured vinegar Oud bruin - pas mal... Plenty of character with a lot of aged/dried/barrel layers interspersed, whilst remaining very drinkable and refreshing = expert brew. Chapeau pour la Suisse romande voor deze Oud Bruin!

trevor211 (1681) - Seattle, Washington, USA - DEC 29, 2013
Red tinged black pour. Dusty tart cherry on the nose. Currants and red wine. Super tart - a puckerer of a Flanders red - I can feel this one in my jaw bones. Really tasty!

luttonm (6274) - Seattle, Washington, USA - DEC 29, 2013
Draft at The Sixgill in Fremont, WA. Rating #1800. Leathery black-brown with some light showing through. Fresh barrel and brewhouse aromas, lovely and tart. Cherry and wood. Big rising tartness, an encompassing sour, cherry and dark leather. Refreshingly rich and tart. Incredible flavor, an impressive beer

Ferris (15288) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 20, 2015
Draft - Soured dark malts, cherry and wood. Jet black with a rich light brown head. Chocolate, cherry and nice tartness. Really nice.

oldrtybastrd (5002) - Fort Walton Beach, Florida, USA - APR 11, 2016
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.

4.1
onceblind (9676) - Denver, Colorado, USA - OCT 23, 2016
Dark deep brown under a thin light tan head. Amazing nose that’s tart, dark, complex, a touch cocoa and woody, and lightly dark fruity. Crisp and tart flavor that’s dark and kinda cocoa-ish, sour, herbal, roasty and very delicious. Pretty nice albeit oxidized. Aged for an unknown amount of time.
