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.

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.

Scopey (11949) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 15, 2012
From bottle at Sour & Bitter 2012. It pours very dark brown, with a thin tan film. The nose is sweet-sour, balsamic vinegar, red berry, syrup, wood, vanilla and almond. The taste is also sweet-sour, white and balsamic vinegar, tart lemon, grapefruit, red berry, wood and alcohol warmth, with lightly tart finish. Medium body, fine carbonation and moderate tartness. Well balanced. Definitely one of the best American interpretations of a Flemish red that I’ve had.
