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.

Big thanks to Exiled for sharing this bottle. The beer pours a hazy red-amber color with a tan head. The aroma is tart cherries with some oak, vanilla and brown sugar. The flavor is tart cherries with some oak. Very drinkable and very dry. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

Drake (10701) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - JUL 2, 2010
750 mL bottle courtesy of Bankhead on 6/13/10. Thanks! Pours a hazy rust color with a medium sized head and lots of visible carbonation. Good head retention and lacing. Very nice aroma with tart fruity notes including grapes and cherries, caramel, vanilla, oak and earthy notes. The taste is tart almost vinegar like notes, dry red grapes, berries, melon, earthy almost vegetal notes, a bit of oak with a very faint tinge of vanilla. Well balanced and smooth. Medium bodied. Excellent beer.

CapnJazz (52) - Binghamton, New York, USA - JUN 27, 2010
Bottle shared with Nate, thanks man! A clear maroon look, medium creamy tan head. Sour fruits, dark cherries, balsamic vinegar. Pretty acidic with nice sour flavor, almost a sour apple note along with the cherries. Had alongside The Jaspers and 2008 Oerbier Reserva and this seemed quite thin and less complex than the other two. Alright, but kind of simple.

100th rating of the beer. Generously shared by dakine -- thanks, man!! Pours a hazy amber color with an off-white ring of bubbles. Smells and tastes of sour lemon juice, tart green apples, and sweet cherries on the mid. Classy.

hopscotch (10142) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - JUN 12, 2010
Bottle… This beer rocks!… Murky, deep garnet ale with a mid-sized, creamy, off-white head. Good retention. The aroma is funky, fruity, acidic and just a touch acetic; offering notes of leather, mild barnyard and a splash of red wine vinegar. Medium-bodied with stinging carbonation. The flavor isn’t quite sour, but it’s very tart with loads of blackberries and restrained caramel sweetness. Finishes tart and tangy with a kiss of caramel. World class bottle of beer courtesy of giarcsr!

GT2 (9410) - San Diego County, California, USA - JUN 7, 2010
750mL courtesy of CaptainCougar. Pours an unclear orange amber with a thin beige head that leaves no lace and has little retention. Aroma is cheesy, funky, horsey/barn, briny cheese with a massive overall note of tamarind. Taste is subdued lactic, lots of oak, red wine, back of the throat lactic sourness, touch of balsamic vinaigrette. Spritzy, bubbly palate.
