Style: Sour Ale • 7.2% ABV
Born from the marriage of a strong Stout and fermented apricots from Valais, which were due for the distillation, our Oud Bruin (Flemish for “Old Brown”) is an unorthodox interpretation of its Belgian cousins. But as well it retains the delicate balance of sweet and sour, between a solid malty backbone based on malt, with notes of caramel, chocolate, toasted and fruity, in which the apricot wine blends with its lactic acidity, notes of leather and barn due to the wild yeasts, and a discreet note of apricot. The finish is slightly bitter and everything goes in harmony on the palate. A unique beer, with great drinkability but nicely complex, smooth, fruity and acidic. It can match lamb, duck, mussels, shellfish, soft or semi-hard cheese. Only 1,200 bottles produced (75cl , 7.2% ABV, 35 IBU). Cheers!
