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 from Hophead22... Poured a golden yellow color... Decent head.. Aroma of some funky tartness. Taste is similar to the nose... Tart but not sour, fruity, maybe some pineapple? Medium carbonation, easy to drink. Overall a nice beer but sours arent my cup of tea

From notes: Someone traded me this one but I don’t remember who. Thanks again. You CA guys are alright ;^) Pours a dark mahogany/chestnut brown color with a very dark ruby red edges when held to a light source and a two finger frothy beige head that has a slight pink hue. Decent retention, only slowly fading into a lasting ring that leaves minimal spots of lacing behind. Tart, earthy oak aroma that is vinous with dark fruit notes. Oaky tannis with subtle vanilla in the nose as well as hints of bugs and lacto. Lots of dark fruit especially tart cherry, grape and dark berries. Slight vinegar presence and again, the oak is very prominent n the aroma. Tart and mouth puckering sweet without being overly acidic. Very vinous with a prominent earthy oak tannis character. Nicely balanced with the perfect combo of earthy oak tannis, vinous dark fruit and tart sourness. Hints of grape, tart dark cherries and other berries. Again, as in the aroma, the oak presence is prominent and adds to the complexity. Sweet and vinous with subtle vanilla from the oak. Tart, puckering finish with subtle vinegar sourness that leaves me craving another sip. A very complex, quaffable and interesting interpretation of the style.

Thank you, Louis for this treat. Delicious and complex, but with a few issues. Like many Bruery beers the alcohol comes across a bit out of balance for the style. The sour elements and nice, but not quite prominent enough, and without enough of a sweet-sour malty backbone to really stitch things together tightly. This is a good beer though, which offers an alternative take on this venerable style.

Bottle courtesy of mikey711. Thanks! Poured into a tulip. A: Pours a crimson/mahogany mixture. Starts with a nice four-finger head, which quickly diminishes down to a slight, quarter-inch ring. No lacing left behind. S: Nice tart acidity coming alongside some cherry notes. A bit of sherry coming in as well. Tiny amount of vinegar. T: A good amount of acidity without being too puckering. A big of vinegar alongside that. Sherry and cherries. Nothing too funky. M: Medium bodied and quite creamy. Great acidity; perfect for the style. D: Highly drinkable. Nice acidity without being overly dry. The creaminess is a nice touch. Well-balanced flavors all around. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 04-03-2010

Bottle – Shared at a local BA tasting. Dark brown, thin white head. Old wood and cherry aromas ride a soft wave of balsamic vinegar throughout. Tart cherry and oak tones round with a hint of sour funked berries and vanilla from start to finish. Medium bodied, medium carbonation, soft bretty, dry cherry-berry finish. The Bruery rarely disappoints…

Bottle ftom major trade with Eclectic. Thx. The pour is hazy orange with a darg beige head that last forever. Nice. The aroma is realy nice and balance nicely between sor and sweet note. There is apricots, well done strawberries, some wood. The sourness is some how laid back in a way that suits it very well. The palate is creamy and at the same time a little sparkling with a taste that have a dilicious sourness that are packed with the taste of berries and again seems very balanced with the sweetness from them. Some wooden notes and the taste of mild butter ends the picture and takes it all the way to the finishing line. Nice sour... really nice sour.

Sour Night II at my house, thanks to Matt Capone. The aroma of berry tart and light citrus. It is bright amber with a tan foamy head. The body is medium to thick with tart flavor dominating a bit of citrus and cranberry. The carbonation is a bit lighter as well.
