Commercial Description:

Born of the fortuitous encounter between a string stout and fermented apricots from the Valais which never reached the distillers, our Oud Bruin (Flemish for «old brown») is a rather unorthodox take on the style. It nevertheless boasts the typical sweet and sour balance between a solid malty, toffee-like, chocolaty, roasted and fruity backbone, into which the apricot wine merges seamlessly with its lactic sourness, its leathery, horse blanket notes from wild yeasts and a discrete touch of apricot deep down. It finally evolves harmoniously into a slightly bitter finish. Altogether a pretty unique yet very drinkable beer, between sweetness, fruitiness and sourness, going down well with lamb and duck meat, mussels, shellfish and hard cheeses.
