COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This year’s Stumptown Tart gathers 15-pounds of Oregon marionberries, raspberries and strawberries from local growers at Willamette Valley Fruit Company for each barrel of this tasty warm weather favorite. To give a different twist to the base beer, Brewmaster Jeff Edgerton used a new malt from Great Western Malt called “Superior Pilsen”. The team is also using wheat malt for some mouthfeel, a slight permanent haze and a lighter color that should serve to accentuate any pinks and reds extracted from the berries. In addition, one-third of the base beer will be fermented with “Ardennes” Belgian yeast to give a light Belgian character and add to the complexity of the profile.

IBU’s: 15 ABV: 7.8% Color: Ruby-Pink OG: 17.6

It has a strawberry orange color, I smell berry, cherry, malt, and some wheat. I taste all of the same with some hops, I like the tart finish. Nice ale......

22oz bottle, thanks to Bunker for sharing. Hazy peach color, little off-white head. Alright, nose is huge berry. Smooth lighter carbonation, medium body, more dry texture. Big berry aroma, taste is more sweet and less tart than I was expecting. Alcohol is well - hidden, though. As far as higher - ABV fruit beers go I think this is pretty decent, if you don’t expect much tartness.

Bomber to snifter (thanks Bunker). Looks solid; a hazy orange with white lacing. Smells sweet and fruity. Tastes like it smells with a pleasant mouthfeel. A solid fruit beer.

Poured from bottle into a tulip. Hazy reddish color. Aroma is sour, fruity (especially strawberry), and a slight maltiness. Little to no head and lacing. The front of the taste is fruity and is quickly overtaken by the flavor of the Belgian yeast with a hint of sourness. Aftertaste is fruity once again. High carbonation leaves a sharp mouthfeel. I was expecting a lot more fruity and sour from this beer. A bit disappointed.

Sampled on 10/1/2012. This fruit beer pours a slightly hazy strawberry color from a 22oz bottle. Small to medium sized white foamy head. The aroma is fruity, strawberry and raspberry. Slightly tart. A medium to light bodied fruit beer. The malts are fruity and sweet, mostly strawberry, but the raspberries and marionberries are there as well. The hops are floral and spicy. Lively carbonation. Nice fruity flavors, they are a little more subdued than I would like, but the berry flavors are there without being overpowering. I kind of like the tartness. Light and refreshing. Interesting combination of fruit. Mouthfeel is full. Finish is clean and crisp. Aftertaste is slightly tart.

3fourths (7976) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - AUG 31, 2012
bottle. hazed amber with a tall white head. strong dried fruit and wood nose with heavy acids and a distinct gauze bandage / skin sweat and paraffin wax note. medium body, medium carbonation levels, medium bitterness, mostly dry. surprisingly gross wet paper flavor front to back, with tart fruit skins and armpit sweat / mold. reminds me of chewing notebook paper; totally stale fruit character. pasty egg shell sulfur yeast; muddy and limp flavor. the appearance in the glass is the best thing it has going for it.

Bomber courtesy of a friend. Thanks! Pours a hazy orange color with a thin fizzy head. Poor head retention. Aroma of sweet berries, slight earthy notes and a faint tartness. The taste is berries, berry life savers, mild earthy funk. Medium bodied.
