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 shared by Ogglethorp, thanks Brian! Reddish brown pour with a big white head. Oak and light funk in the nose. Tart with plenty of wood and light berry flavor. Some earthiness, cherry pit. Dry in the finish. Nothing sticks out too much.

asheft (2825) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 3, 2016
Bottle from Olive Tree, Ocean Beach, San Diego. Sweet, tart and brown malt aroma. Dried fruit, tobacco, raisin, bright sourness and red wine. Hazy ruby with a collar of tiny bubbles. Flavour is less specialty malt than in the nose and very sour. Lots of sour cherry, grape, and a faint woody bitterness. Maybe a little pickle juice. Light body, medium carbonation.

rodenbach99 (3775) - Longueuil, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 8, 2016
Version 2015. Une robe rouge brune qui ne fit aucune mousse. Un nez boisé intense avec de belles notes de cerise. Une bouche qui est «tart» comme son nom l’indique. Le boisé est tout aussi intense. 7+

blueshockey24 (184) - Colorado, USA - JAN 4, 2016
Bottle. Pours Like a strong dark tea. Minimal large bobble head that dissipates quickly. Aroma is fruity and malty. Taste is sour, fruity, leather, with a tart finish. Minimal carbonation. I like it but it’s a little under carbonated for my liking.

bulldogops (1681) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 31, 2015
Rating #1501 - 14.03.2015 - Bottle from Sherbrooke. Pours a deep reddish brown with a bubbly head that disapparates rather quickly. Aroma is berries, wild cherries, sour plum tartness - rich, fruity texture. Palate is well balanced - lots of tart cherry, sweetness from the barrel component, some woody oak components, and a leathery bitter funk note - lovely sour/bruin.

On tap at the Bruery. Bang on style for Flanders red - sour with just a little acetic acid in the mix, rich, tasty, complex, delicious.

Savagesteeler (108) - Warszaw, POLAND - DEC 15, 2015
W aromacie dzikosc, nuty drzewne winne . W smaku kwas zdominowal wszystko, lekka beczka, slodycz. Smak bardzo zlozony. Czerwono bursztynowy kolor, bezowa piana.

brokephibroke (307) - Mead, Colorado, USA - DEC 3, 2015
Minimal carbonation but pours a beautiful brown. Aroma of sherry vinager, cherry and oak. Fricken delicious: tart cherry, oak, lemon and a long, delicious bitter aftertaste. Add a little more CO2 and this is top notch.

Dark amber beer with low carbonation. Dark fruits and balanced acidity. Enough sweetness to balance without being cloying.
