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.

Minimal carbonation but pours a beautiful brown. Aroma of sherry vinager, cherry and oak. Fricken delicious: tart cherry, oak, lemon and a long, delicious bitter aftertaste. Add a little more CO2 and this is top notch.

Dark amber beer with low carbonation. Dark fruits and balanced acidity. Enough sweetness to balance without being cloying.

750ml shared by Brad. Burgundy brown body. Foamy uneven off-white/beige head. Leathery, fruity sour tones. Some classic red wine vinegar tones. Too much US sour for me to really call it a Flemish Red. Pretty tasty still. OK.

With Z, a bomber, pours a rich reddish brown color with a beige ephemeral head. Nose is tart and sour, with a nice pungency. Taste is sour with Brett and very strong oak ! Finishes on the same tasting notes with a moderately long oaky sour ending. Quaff Score 7 / 10

Tap at Clubhouse BFD. Pours dark mahogany. Beige white head. Aroma is vinegar, light blueberry, some dark fruit, plum, actually really pleasant. Flavor is sour, dark fruit, that really works for me. Vinegar but not overpowering. I really like this one.
