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.

joeneugs (5442) - Livermore, California, USA - SEP 12, 2010
Pours reddish brown with a large, fizzy, orange/brown head that settles to a thick creamy layer. The aroma is cherries, vinegar, and oak. The flavor is mouth puckeringly tart with cherries, oak, a little vinegar, and minor notes of leather. Not much funkiness going on here, it has more of a fruit punch flavor with a lemony, orange leather finish. Good one.

Tap at Aromas. Pour was a deep ruby with a big off-white head. Really nice looking. Nose was mix of sour cherries, oak, funky yeast. Taste was tart, oaky mix of dark fruits, and yeast. Body was really nice and well carbonated. Overall, a very nice beer. This was my favorite of the Aromas funky fest.

750 ml bottle shared by Shawn. Thanks! Pours a rusty reddish brown with a small frothy offwhite head that dies to a film, laces small. Aromas are juicy fruit punch, sour cherries, light biscuity malts, a touch of lactic acidity, light brett, vanilla oakiness. Initial is raspberries and cherries, soured fruit punch, biscuity and wheat bread malts, lactic acidity, light brett, rich oak. A great flanders with huge juicy fruit character, reminds me of Minute Maid fruit punch. Juicy raspberry, cherry, melon with a nice dose of sour fruit, melon, wet oak, lacto, and nice touch of brett, sweet malts. Sour takes dominance. A wonderful flanders by the Bruery, my favorite by them. Juicy, sour, light funk, with a decent oak touch. Probably my winner of the tasting. Juicy, sour, oak, faint vinegar with a touch of biscuity malts beneath.

Bottled. A murky dark amber beer with an orangey head. The aroma has notes of bettanomyces, malt, and caramel. The flavor is sour with notes of brettanomyces, malt, and lemon, leading to a tart finish. Lacks sweetness to be a really good Flemish Red.
