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.

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!

JStax (4595) - Devola/Marietta, Ohio, USA - OCT 8, 2012
Poured from a refrigerated 750 ml bottle into a brandy snifter. The beer is much darker than I would have suspected. No real head to speak of. The aroma is very lactic and earthily sour. The taste has tongue numbing, mouth puckering sourness going on through the beerís entirety. Very sour. One of the individuals I was drinking this with could barely drink it. No problem here. Anyway, the finish is dry and sticks with you for a good little while. Really liked this one.

EHouse (170) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - OCT 6, 2012
Pours a deep chestnut brown with a nice little head of tan. Aroma is sour with hints of malt sweetness and a touch of oak. Very light, dry body, with a ton of prickly tannins. Some fruity citrus (cranberry?), lots of lactic acid and a we bit of acetic. Very dry finish with a nice lingering of sour tannins like a big cab sauv. This would be killer with lobster.

Bottle shared at Craft Beer Co., London, thanks to Mike. Pours cloudy, ruby-brown with a fine, off-white head. Big tangy berry aroma. Light sweet flavor, moderately sour with some taosted wood, dried raspberries and cranberries. Light to medium bodied with average carbonation. Good and tangy to finish with sour fruits, berries, very faint grassy bitterness. Good stuff.
