Oud Bruin

Oud Bruin, Flemish for “Old Brown,” is from East Flanders and shares characteristics with Flanders Red, but exhibits just as many differences. This old ale pours a chestnut brown, with hints of red, but browner than the Flanders Red.It also has a tart flavor, but is not as sour and has less acetic acid than Flanders Red and finishes slightly sweeter. Oud Bruin shows more malt character of caramel, toffee, molasses and chocolate with delicious fruit flavors of raisins, plums, and cherries. Depending on the brewery, Oud Bruin can have a wide range of ABV, anywhere from 4 to 8%.
