Stumptown Tart is more than just a pretty face. She’s a strong beer with a pink hue who packs a tart kick...beauty has never been more potent. This Oregon Marion Berry infused Belgian Style Ale is lightly hopped and aged in French Oak Pinot Noir Barrels. So, pucker up, there’s a new lady in town!

This is just the right level of sour for my taste buds. It gives a little pucker and then you get the berry notes and the wine aspects afterwards. Not to heavy but still a sipper in my book.

5000 (6862) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - JAN 3, 2010
Bottle:   Reddish caramel, a little murkey, thin spritzy off-white head, spotty lacing.   Pale fruity nose.   Smells a little artificial.   Otherwise slightly mealy.   Perhaps a hint of alcohol.   Fake berry flavors on the tongue, mealy and/or cereal like, but without the malt base.   Somewhat thin, and certainly all that uninteresting.   I was hoping for so much more. Moderate to thin body and mouthfeel.   Alcohol was well hidden, but this felt like 5 or 6%.   Needs more malt and more sweetness.   Just not all there.

Bomber poured a clear rddish amber with a lasting creamy amber head. Aromas of Berries, oak, horse blanket, some vinous notes, light leather and light lactic notes. Palate was light bodied and smooth with a dry tart finish. Flavors of berries, vinous notes, oak, horseblanket and light leather with a smooth dry lingering tart funky finish.

Bottle: The aroma consists of tart and lightly sweet cherries with some light yeast. It pours a hazy orangish-red with a small soapy off-white head. The flavor starts pretty bland with some faint caramel. The flavor has some watery cherry sourness. Light-medium bodied with mild carbonation.

22oz bottle that has been sitting in my fridge. Pours a clear slightly brown rosé with a loose off white head that condenses and settles down to a ring around the edge of my tulip. Aroma of oak, tart berries, hints of balsamic, and a touch of wet horse blanket. Tart berry up front with a good amount of oak and then finishes with just a touch of funk and pretty dry. I think the only thing that would have made this more enjoyable for me would have been a bit more Marion Berry flavor. I am glad I still had a bottle of this as I had it before, but never rated it. This years was a HUGE let down and this one was very underrated IMHO.

Bottle shared at tasting. Poured a murky redish brown with white head. Aroma of vinous fruit, berries, funk, and wood. Taste is similar, with some grain and plenty of sourness. More wood comes through in the tart finish. Not bad, but not really great either.

500th Rating - Been aching to try this, thanks BuckeyeBoy!!! - Pours a murky amber with basically no head...that is some funky smelling shit...sour, underripe berries, astringent wood...flavour is similarly sour, grainy, light undiscernable berries...serious alcohol well hidden, watch out...

Pours clear cranberry colored with no lasting head. Smell is fruity, tart and funky, with a bit of oak and dust. Taste is lightly fruity with berryies and prety dry. Just not very flavorful though. Like spritzer water with faint fruit essence and funk. eh...
