“Old Flemish Brown” tasting
Unknown is unloved. This also applies to the Flemish red-brown beers. This beer style, also called old brown, is an old Belgian beer type from the province of West and East Flanders.
7 different beers from the region were tasted blind (10-15 cl).
Ultimately our tasters liked Rodenbach classic, Ichtegemse Grand Cru, Oud Bruin (‘t Verzet) and Vanderghinste the most.
