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.

bhensonb (10352) - Woodland, California, USA - MAY 26, 2012
Bomber from "Made in Oregon". Pours sort of rose amber with a slight white head. Aroma is very berry/fruites de bois sort of thing. Near med body. Flavor is very berry with hints of spice. "Light Belgian character" it is. Belgians would be proud to claim this. Finishes balanced, perhaps on the dry side, and lightly bitter - like chewing berry seeds. Delightful.

Bottle l home picked up at Wilbur’s Fort Collins. Pours a murky orange appearance with a khaki head. Strawberry candy, artificial raspberry, a bit juicy, spritzy aroma. Moderate carbonation. Strawberry, pink lemonade, zesty, fruit juice flavor. If you’re looking for a fruit bomb, then this is for you.

3fourths (7799) - 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.

5000 (6027) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - JUL 22, 2012
Bottle:   Pinkish hued amber, large sudsy white head, dies quickly, sparce lacing.   Candyish berry like nose, seemingly tart.   Certainly fruity, hard to discern what tho.   Also seems like a bit of cottoncandy.   A little spritzy on the tongue, more artificial like on the tongue than the nose suggests.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate, comes across as pretty spritzy.   Soft mealy finish, fake fruity/berry aspects.   Pretty much what I expected.   Smells better than most tho, and the cottoncandy was an interesting touch.

KyotoLefty (5903) - Kyoto, JAPAN - OCT 14, 2013
bottled. Salmon-pink-orange color, cloudy, with lace. big fruity nose, raspberry and other berries, light lemon and some thinner. Lemon and berry flavor, very low sourness, slightly tart, a bit watery. Alcohol present. Nice but not special.
