Vanderghinste RoodbruinVanderghinste Roodbruin
Notes: Originally called "Ouden Tripel", this ancient beer has found a new élan as a regional specialty under its current name: "VanderGhinste Roodbruin".

The main ingredients of our Vanderghinste Roodbruin are malted barley, wheat, hops, water, and caramelized malts. These are used to brew a top-fermented beer.

Blending this beer with lambic beer aged in oak barrels for 18 months, results in this specific West Flanders Red-brown beer. Its typical flavour is characterized by a well-balanced, hardly noticeable sourness.

This first flavour impression is soon followed by a second pleasant discovery: a slight bitterness followed by a hint of sweetness.

2016 bottle from BA Portland Beer Fest, drank Feb 2022. Aged beautifully. Poured garnet brown with small white head. Had a malty smell, tasted slightly sour and not too Oude Bruiny, but just enough of each to be a beautiful beer to drink. Mouthfeel was coating and right on. Completely enjoyed this and would welcome another if I ever saw one. Cheers!

11.2oz brown bottle. Label has bottling date as '10 27 20'.
Ruby brown colored body. Initial head upon pouring is a thin light beige, and then recedes to a partial cap and ring. Any lacing stays just about the fluid line.
Aroma is full with oak, red wine, and dark fruit. Sour and sweet combination.
Taste is is mildly sour at first with red wine, then the flavor goes to a red fruit similar to currant, and then a bit of a bitter bite. Definitely blends the sour and the sweet. Aroma has more oak but there is a touch in the taste. Aftertaste is more earthy and dark fruit, but not long lasting.
Medium mouth feel with some tannin dryness. Okay carbonation.
Wild beer with a range of pleasant flavors.

250 ml bottle, as VanderGhinste Oud Bruin, brewed at Brouwerij Bockor Kortrijk, BB date 06.06.2013, from Vinmonopolet, Nettbutikken. ABV is 5.5%. Deep brownish red colour, moderate off-white head. Interesting sourish aroma of oak, farmhouse, red wine and red wine vinegar, spicy notes too. Medium sour and fairly sweet flavour, fruity and vinous notes, the hops are hardly noticeable.

330 ml bottle with a 2018 bottling date stamp on the back label.
Look. This has a nice, dark reddish-brown body but a weak head.
Complex aroma and flavor. Both are fruity but the flavor has strong sweet and sour notes the nose cannot detect.
This has more sweetness and less hint of vinegar than usual for the style.

Brouwerij Omer Vander Ghinste "Vanderghinste Roodbruin"
€4 / 25 cl on tap @ Il Santo Bevitore, Venezia, IT

Notes: Clear very dark mahogany colored body with a ruby sheen beneath a creamy head of khaki colored foam. The aroma is vinous with notes of balsamic vinegar and dark skinned fruit. The flavor follows. It's fruity, sugary, herbal, earthy, lightly tart, and mildly bitter. Dryish finish with caramelish malt and vinous character lingering. Medium bodied with a fine-bubbled, effervescent carbonation.
