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.

Bottled. Pours hazy amber with a small, lacing off-white head. Aroma of sour berries, yeast, funk, wood and baryard. Slightly sweet flavor that end up dry and tart. Light to medium bodied, watery to oily texture and soft carbonation . An excellent Sour.

Bottle shared with my dad. As I opened the bottle I got a big whift of the beer and damn was I exhited!Pour dark red brown with a beige foam that dissapears quickly. The nose is wonderful, excellent example of the style and reminds me of rodenbach vintage. Big notes of musky oak, lactic acid, vinegar, some sweetness, red berries and a bit of gooseberry as well. Flavour is awesome, starts off very sour then it gives way to oaky, red berries, sweet malts, vinegar, some funk. Not the biggest mouthfeel but overall it?s very balanced and super tasty.

Dark mahogany pour with a brown head. Aroma is sour, oak. Taste is sour, oaky, fruity. The sour is a little puckering (in a good way). Nice to see The Bruery beers locally finally. Welcome to the Illinois Valley.

Tart sour grape nose. Just huge vinegar... That’s all I got. Good for a steak marinade...to ol grape vinegar for me.

750 mL bottle. 2013 edition. The pour is a nice dark ruby color with a great light tan frothy head that falls down to a collar with no lacing. The aroma is pretty good. There is a nice sour tart dark fruit up front and a solid leather character and a lot of good dark fruits. There is a nice fruitiness and a wonderful tartness. The flavor is really good. There is a lot of barrel on the front in the manner of a lot of oakiness. The dark fruits really come through and there is a beautiful tartness that resonates throughout. The mouth feel is great. There is a perfect carbonation and a light creaminess. The finish is quite tart and lovely with a dry fruitiness on the back end. Really good ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

UPDATED: FEB 2, 2015 Bottle. Dark ruby. Cherry sour aroma. The taste adds big oaky notes and smooth tartness throughout. Prickly carb but, lighter than expected. Awesome!! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Fint huve när det hälls upp som dock försvinner snabbt. Vinös i både doft & smak. Doft av röda bär & ton av blåbär, märkligt. Grym surhet i smak som knullar i mun. Som sagt syrlig, sura godisar, naturlig kolsyrad & rödvinsmak. Även färg är rödvin. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours with a medium quickly fading head.nose of musty dark stone fruits and old damp wood with a slight sharpness breaking through the must. Full flavor burst in the front of moderately tartness balanced very well by dark fruit sweetness and a background of musty wood. Finish is less intense but pleasing. Been a while since I had a Flemish sour but from what I remember this ranks up there with the classics of the style, very good.
