COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Oude Tart is a Flemish-Style Red Ale aged in red wine barrels for 18 months. It’s pleasantly sour with hints of leather, dark fruit and toasty oak. While this is one of the more classic beer styles that we make, it’s not a style that you can find too often in the United States. Originating in style from the Flanders region of Belgium, near the French boarder, this dark, sour ale has roots deep in brewing history and predates most of the ales that have become popular in contemporary culture. We’re doing our best to keep the tradition alive by brewing and aging this beer here on the west coast.

I finally got to try this. It is worthy of it’s awards. There are tart, sour and vinegar like. This one is big on the vinegar. You can really taste the wine and the barrel. Very earthy and woody. Tastes young and sharp.

mikesaum (656) - Newark, Ohio, USA - SEP 13, 2012
Pours a dark dark red, practically brown with a cream colored head. Aroma is dark fruits, lots of tart cherries, some nice funkiness and some oaky hints. Wow the first sip of this is crazy sour and funky, a blast of tart cherry and some plum, hints of oak, very dry puckery finish, a lot going on the flavor, and pleasantly sour for sure, would love to get another bottle for the cellar.

JaBier (5616) - Capital City, Ohio, USA - SEP 10, 2012
Bottle brought back by Dogbrick. Clear reddish copper pour with a medium tan head. Malty and funky nose with sour cherry and wood notes. Malty and woody flavor with sour vinegar and light cherry character before a big sour finish. Seems to be a bit more sour than I remember from GABF, but still very tasty.

On tap at Beer Revolution. Dark copper brown with no head. Ara of sour green apple, candy sugar, and light acetone. Tastes of sour green apple, candy, and caramel with a sharp acidic finish. Bright but oddly crisp palate. A little rough overall for my tastes.

Aroma of leather, wood, cherry, charred meat. Sour apple flavor, not as explosively sour, but great mouthfeel. Some sweet notes. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

31 aug 2012, bottle. Murky brown. Nose is dried wood, tart wood. Lots of wood, some tart, faintly sweet. Thin body, faintly fizzy, sets teeth on edge. Really tart oaky. No tart finish. All the best of a sour with no negatives. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
