Brunetta Oud Bruin Ale
Yeah, Brunetta is definitely winking at me! Ommegang recently released their collaboration with Belgium's Liefmans--Brunetta Oud Bruin Ale. The label definitely sets your expectations, "Tart with a touch of sweetness, refreshing and perfectly balanced maltiness and acidity."
The story on the back titled "Where Heaven Met Earth and Stayed Awhile" also gives some history and finishes describing this beer as a "fine ale all about elegant refreshment." 11.2 oz bottle. 5% alcohol. Best By 02/2019
Generic malty aroma, brown bread. Lightly tart to start, also plenty acidic with some apple cider flavors. A malty caramel answer does come. Nutty as well. Dark fruits, maybe prunes and bread round out the profile. Interesting but definitely not a style I adore. No Heaven for me. Let me know what you think.
