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.

For me, this is the perfect level of sourness which is 8/10. I like this Flanders better than the classics brewed in Belgium. Not quite as dry and woody as the classics, but it doesn’t seem to matter. The Caravienne malt is a nice surprise and the Brett C pineapple note is pleasant guest, but the two sometimes clash in the nose creating a moment of sniffing confusion. Very good, overall.

UPDATED: FEB 24, 2014 Bottle (750 ml). Thanks to jp7161 for the 1st bottle / thanks to JM for sharing a bottle. Bright burgundy with a light ring of beige foam. Aroma of red fruits, interesting sourness, red wine, acetic presence (not too much), wood, spices and hints of caramel. Taste is moderately sweet and moderately sour with a lot of red fruits, medium acetic presence, red wine, wood, some spices, leathery brettanomyces and caramel. Medium body. Medium carbonation. Spicy/dry finish. A tad winey too. Balance isn’t bad despite the sourness. Very tasty. A really nice Flemish Red. I enjoyed it a lot!
