Description 

This beer is a blend of some ‘old’ brown beer already has a maturation of 6 months in oak barrels behind it, and some “young” brown beer. Each vessel is tasted separately and cut to taste in different concentrations with each other. So we get the perfect blend. Each year, the taste is slightly different. The main characteristics remain always the same: the aroma is dominated by green apple, red fruits and oak. The taste is refreshingly acidic and very thirst-quenching.

Brouwerij 't Verzet Oud Bruin is an Oud Bruin, judged as BJCP Category 23C. This example is a murky brown color with a solid charge of fizz. The white head dies down after just a moment. Its aroma is acidic and fruity (mostly cherry) with background sweetness and caramel malt. The taste is full-on tart, but not overpowering. There is a low buttery note with cherry and sweet flavors. This beer finishes well attenuated and highly carbonated. After several minutes of warming up, the aroma loses its secondary character and is reduced to its sour quality. The finish strangely becomes very dry and takes on a roughness that is almost astringent. Overall, this example is within style but not particularly sturdy.
