This traditional beer from the South-West of Flanders awakens your taste buds with a massive wallop. Once your senses get over that initial shock, the experience a complexe mix of winey aromas, red fruits, wood and green apple. Sourness dominates in taste. This red brown beer is a blend of old and young beer, aged in different oak barrels. Each barrel gives a different taste, but through the proces of blending, a similar style is obtained. Once botteled, the beer ripens for six months to further develop its finesse and delicate aromas.

This blonde beer full of character is our plea for Belgian Hops: NoAH stands for “No American Hops”. The finest hops, all grown in Belgium, were selected to give this beer a sturdy but pure bitterness and noble hop aroma. Thanks to the low alcohol percentage and fresh hoppiness, this beer makes for the perfect thirst-quenching spirited blonde. Bring out the Belgian in you and proudly order a Super NoAH on that terrace across the American embassy. Cheers!
Scent: flowery and slightly fruity hop smell Flavour: The initial cleanliness and maltiness soon makes place for noble hop aromas from the Hallertau Mittelfruh. The main taste is floral. The bitterness in the aftertaste announces the next sip.
The Golden Tricky is made in honour of a witty priest from East-Flanders. The only hop that is used in this brew is the Australian Ella. Don’t be fooled by her exotic aroma that creates the expectation of a sweet beer. You will soon notice the bitter aftertaste that makes this beer whole. Do the test and let a boomerang of tastes slide through your throat, all the way down-under.
Scent: Mango, apricot, passion fruit Flavour: tropical fruit and subtle sweetness from the Australian hop dominate the first taste. This quickly blends with a strong, yet nicely rounded bitterness.

Oud Bruin Thrills:
Oud Bruin FEST:
Holy shit! The very first Oud Bruin MEGABLEND ever!
"To highlight the collaboration of the brewers, Brewery 't Verzet joined forces with 11 other breweries for a unique collab. They went to each of them to get 200 liters of Flemish red-brown beer, where the brewer there carefully selected a perfect barrel and blended it into a MEGABLEND."
This unique bottle of Oud Bruin is a collaboration between 12 Belgian breweries. It is a blend of Flemish Red Brown that, depending on brewer to brewer, has spent 2 to 4 years in barrels. This beer was created in honor of the Oud Bruin FEST beer festival. The first beer festival with a focus on Flemish Red Brown beers. However, the first edition of this festival has been rescheduled to 2022 due to corona measures.
