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.

Bottle; Pour is murky dark brown with a modest khaki head in this glass. The nose is earthy oak, vanilla, cherry skins, some mild vanilla, and some vinegar. The flavor profile trumps the appearance and the nose for me ; it begins on the slightly sweet, oak, leather, citrus notes, and it rounds out with more vinegar, acetic elements, although its lacking a bit of heft, I think, for my taste. Anyway , a terrific sour, with decent tartness all around.

an approachable Flanders. Nicely balanced earthiness with the sour and tart although I would prefer more sour less earthy. little bit dirty but works pretty well.

75cl bottle @ ZZT IV. Clear dark deep red color, small beige head. Smell slightly cherries, some flowers, blossom and something else I can’t quite put my finger on. Taste is light to moderately sour, but very well balanced with some fruits and fruitpeel. Medium body, medium carbo.

Ziemlich säuerlicher, gering süßer Beginn, etwas malzig. Rund, stechend, speziell. Merkwürdig aber ziemlich gut! 11/12/10/12/8/12

Bottle. Pours a nice mahogany dark red color with a beige head. Aroma is of tart cherries, dark fruits, brown sugar, some barnyard funk, balsamic vinegar, raspberry and red grapes. The flavor follows the nose with lots of red berries flavors, cherry, raspberry and red grapes, dark fruits, brown sugar, balsamic vinegar and barnyard funk. The body is medium with a dry mouth feel. Overall a pretty nice Sour!

pushkinwow (2272) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 25, 2012
750ml bottle, I think second time in a bottle, first time was on tap at EBF. Brown with a tan head, balsalmic vinegar, tannins, some cherries, mild tartness, wood. Moderate carbonation and body, mild sourness with a nice malty finish, somewhat dry. Decent but not as good as I remember on tap.

Bottle @ S&B. Deep renal failure bloody red brown color with a tiny, off-white head. The nose is sweet cherry and brown sugar, jammy fruits, light vinegar and cheesy funk. The taste is tart, bright cherry and raspberry. Tart, vinous notes of grape skin and funk. The body’s light and active. No real carbonation. Overall, very nice. Clearly like a Flanders red, a good thing.
