This years Stumptown Tart gathers 15-pounds of Oregon marionberries, raspberries and strawberries from local growers at Willamette Valley Fruit Company for each barrel of this tasty warm weather favorite. To give a different twist to the base beer, Brewmaster Jeff Edgerton used a new malt from Great Western Malt called Superior Pilsen. The team is also using wheat malt for some mouthfeel, a slight permanent haze and a lighter color that should serve to accentuate any pinks and reds extracted from the berries. In addition, one-third of the base beer will be fermented with Ardennes Belgian yeast to give a light Belgian character and add to the complexity of the profile.

3fourths (9320) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - AUG 31, 2012
bottle. hazed amber with a tall white head. strong dried fruit and wood nose with heavy acids and a distinct gauze bandage / skin sweat and paraffin wax note. medium body, medium carbonation levels, medium bitterness, mostly dry. surprisingly gross wet paper flavor front to back, with tart fruit skins and armpit sweat / mold. reminds me of chewing notebook paper; totally stale fruit character. pasty egg shell sulfur yeast; muddy and limp flavor. the appearance in the glass is the best thing it has going for it.

Bomber courtesy of a friend. Thanks! Pours a hazy orange color with a thin fizzy head. Poor head retention. Aroma of sweet berries, slight earthy notes and a faint tartness. The taste is berries, berry life savers, mild earthy funk. Medium bodied.

Fratto (2845) - Arlington, Texas, USA - JUL 23, 2012
Bottle from Cavie. Weird red pour with a white head. Aroma is rotten fruit and tomato juice. Taste is carbonation, spinach, and a very berry finish.

5000 (6862) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - JUL 22, 2012
Bottle:   Pinkish hued amber, large sudsy white head, dies quickly, sparce lacing.   Candyish berry like nose, seemingly tart.   Certainly fruity, hard to discern what tho.   Also seems like a bit of cottoncandy.   A little spritzy on the tongue, more artificial like on the tongue than the nose suggests.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate, comes across as pretty spritzy.   Soft mealy finish, fake fruity/berry aspects.   Pretty much what I expected.   Smells better than most tho, and the cottoncandy was an interesting touch.

stchloe (1017) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JUL 21, 2012
Looks good, smells good, has a slight fruity tartness, but nothing else. If youre expecting a sour beer, its like wanting warheads and getting sweet tarts instead.

unclemattie (4358) - Georgia, USA - JUL 20, 2012
Vintage 2012, 22oz bottle. Pours golden color with hints of pink. White head. Aroma of pale malts and fermented fruit. Smells sweet. Light bodied. Pale malt flavor with a unspoken essence of mixed fruit. Some strawberry and raspberry character throughout the bottle. Very nice, kinda strong for a session. (3402)

SPDickerman (1239) - Texas, USA - JUL 13, 2012
Pours hazy orange red with a tiny white head. Smells sweet, fruity, and has some Belgian yeast funk notes. Taste is sweet and fruity with a subtle touch of sour. Light-bodied with a wet, slick texture and average mouth-carbonation, BridgePort Stumptown Tart 2012 (Triple Berry) finishes with a bit of funkiness underneath the fruit.

Cybercat (5662) - Georgia, USA - JUN 21, 2012
Aroma has a strong fruity overtone with notes of strawberry and raspberry - and that must be marionberry. It pours a slightly hazy coppery amber with a fairly thick pale tan head that leaves some good lacing. Flavor has a malty core and a strong berry overtone, notes of sweetness and tartness, even a hint of woody hops. Texture has decent body and a sharp fizz that leaves a nice tingly berry finish. Pick this one!
