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

Very fruity. A desert beer for sure. Probably has less calories than a slice of fruity cheesecake. Though no cheesecake flavor is for sure has the fruity flavor down nicely. Tasted a little artificial but still very good. heavy cloying sweetness, cloudy, minimal head, amber, orange, red,

Aroma has a strong fruity overtone with notes of strawberry and raspberry - and that must be marionberry. It pours a slightly hazy coppery amber with a fairly thick pale tan head that leaves some good lacing. Flavor has a malty core and a strong berry overtone, notes of sweetness and tartness, even a hint of woody hops. Texture has decent body and a sharp fizz that leaves a nice tingly berry finish. Pick this one!

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.

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.

I’ve had a few beers made with strawberry, and they generally haven’t been very good. I liked this one because it doesn’t hit you over the head with fruit - just a subtle whiff here and there. Fairly hearty malt base, judicious use of fruit. Not bad. Thanks to curly for the trade!

SPDickerman (930) - Texas, USA - JUL 13, 2012
Pours hazy orange red with a tiny white head. Smells sweet, fruity, and has some Belgian yeast funk notes. Taste is sweet and fruity with a subtle touch of sour. Light-bodied with a wet, slick texture and average mouth-carbonation, BridgePort Stumptown Tart 2012 (Triple Berry) finishes with a bit of funkiness underneath the fruit.

Vintage 2012, 22oz bottle. Pours golden color with hints of pink. White head. Aroma of pale malts and fermented fruit. Smells sweet. Light bodied. Pale malt flavor with a unspoken essence of mixed fruit. Some strawberry and raspberry character throughout the bottle. Very nice, kinda strong for a session. (3402)

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.
