COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Oude Tart is a Flemish-Style Red Ale aged in red wine barrels for 18 months. Itís pleasantly sour with hints of leather, dark fruit and toasty oak. While this is one of the more classic beer styles that we make, itís 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. Weíre doing our best to keep the tradition alive by brewing and aging this beer here on the west coast.

Decent red ale. Typical bruery tartness. Some fruitiness. Good mouthfeel. The price is far too high though.

Nice red pour with a tan/red head. Aroma is sour, fruit, cherries. Iím not sure what I was expecting. THis was a really good beer, but also fairlt shallow? The sourness is there, but it lacked a bit of complexity. Still, those ar eminor knocks against an excellent beer.

Thanks to the Pete and Jake for sharing this with my sorry ass. Pour deep murky red/brown, with a small tan head. Aroma is pretty darn nice of sour cherries, tart, slight funk, cherriesweets (?), Slight Wood, Cork, Slight leather. Really complex, and it sure has a lot Going on. The taste is pretty sour, with Some fruity sweet Notes as Well. Average Body, with a semi-fizzy carb.

Pours deep reddish brown with a small tan. Nose is vinegar, plums, apricot, cherries and funk! Taste is all sour and it's wonderful. Hint of bitterness though. Mouthfeel is crisp and clean, light body and a long finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours cloudy mahogany into a tulip. White head recedes to mottle rim. Sweet oak and sour pit fruit aromas. Thin with sweet summer fruit upfront turning to caramel before the lasting sour plumb, citrus and oak finish.

Dark murky rosy brown with no head. Tart and bactillic aroma of dark fruits aged in sour wood...thatís all I can describe. The taste is thick and full but sour in a way thatís strong but manageable. Starts nice and dark malty with roasty toffee and dark plum, with a little sour kick of boozy raisins, dark candi sugar and light oak tones. Dry bretty tones round out the sour finish. Pretty deep and complex sour.

My good friend Reg shared this with me, thanks! Pours a cloudy reddish brown with no head. Fresh wood followed by a background of barnyard funk. Flavors start with a slight sweetness up front, followed by a burst of tartness, mixed with leather, wood, vinegar, and some cherry in the background. Great mix. Very good!

Bottles on many occasion, most recently at Pjs pour house. Reddish brown pour with small to medium head and lacing. Notes of sour fruit like cherry, cranberry, red grapes. Also present is oak, vanilla, caramel, vinegar, And light malt. Pretty good sour from Bruery but not my favorite.
