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.

Pours a clear reddish brown with a nice white ring. Aroma of brett, cherries, wood, leather and funk. Taste is tart cherries, funk, leather, dark dried fruits and complex sourness. Complex sourness transforming into a semi dry finish! Love this style!

berlinoise2go (680) - NORWAY - APR 30, 2015
2014 edition, 8% ABV. Bottle (1 pint) from Vinmonopolet, Oslo. Lovely rusty/mahogany colour, slightly hazy. Finger-thick light beige, cracking, rapidly diminishing head. Aroma of sour cherries, aged vinegar, red wine, oak, caramel, tobacco. Medium body, soft carbonation. Taste has moderate vinegary acidity upfront; a fruity, well-balanced middle; and a fairly brutally tart finish, though pleasantly mellowed by the barrel-ageing.

ddemmingjr (791) - Chagrin Falls, Ohio, USA - APR 13, 2015
An Oude to Rodenbach- bottled aged for about 2 yrs - pours opaque, mahogany brown, khaki head that recedes. Nose is classic Flemish red. Oak, lactic acid, leather and dark fruits. Woodsy, leather, vinous dark fruits and that acidic tart dryness you're looking for in a Flemish red. Long sour finish that resonates. Rodenbach of the west. Well done ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

dogfishho (669) - Bloomfield, New Jersey, USA - APR 1, 2015
Notes of oak and fermented fruit on the nose. On the palate, it is quite tart, but a nice sweetness comes in to balance things out. Refreshing.

RexTalionis (3304) - FINLAND - MAR 22, 2015
Bottle. Mahogny ruby in color with a beige head. Red berries, tart fruityness, wooden oaky notes and vinegar in aroma. Nice, quite good vibes already from this one. In taste there’s even more oak and tart fruits, which have been vinagered for a while. Pleasant mouthfeel. Leather and fruity sweetness in the end.
