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.

erickok (6036) - Leuven, BELGIUM - MAY 5, 2013
Glowing copper red body, tiny head. Sour funk, fermenting fruits, rough. Fairly sour yet fruity taste. Well aged, but the sourness dominates and the malts can only barely keep up. Would have liked a bigger body on this one. (ZeeBra)

Bottle, thanks to none other than THE Bman1113vr. Murky brown pour. Nose is tannins, oak, leather, faint coconut, and tons of tart notes. Nice amount of oak in this one. Flavor is oaky, tannins, tons of sourness. Prickly carb and dry mouthfeel. Lovely beer.

3.3
AndySnow (8119) - Huddinge, SWEDEN - APR 14, 2013
Bottle at Craft Heads, Tokyo. Deep red colour with an off-white head. aroma is berries, malt, cherry. Flavour is sour, fruit, citrus.

3.5
TimE (6130) - Tokyo, JAPAN - APR 7, 2013
Very dark mahogany color. Green apples, oak and cherries dominate from start to finish, but the nose is somewhat subdued and boring. Moderately tart, but more mainstream examples of the style are far superior. Good, but I wouldn’t return to.

3.9
Tmoney99 (14976) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - APR 6, 2013
Bottle. Poured a clear ruby color with an small to average fizzy tan head that mostly diminished with fair lacing. Moderate to heavy dark fruit, sour and wood aroma. Medium to full body with a sticky tingly texture and soft carbonation. Medium to heavy dark fruit sour flavor with a medium to heavy dark sour finish of moderate to long duration. This is a solid beer.

750 ml bottle. Pours brown with a small beige head. The aroma is tast, sour cherries, additional fruits, oak, and some caramel malts. The flavor has a great drinkable tart character, sour cherry, oak, caramel, brown sugar with a light funk. Tends to the dry side.
