COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Oude Tart is a Flemish-Style Red Ale aged in red wine barrels for 18 months. Its pleasantly sour with hints of leather, dark fruit and toasty oak. While this is one of the more classic beer styles that we make, its 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. Were doing our best to keep the tradition alive by brewing and aging this beer here on the west coast.

On draft at church key in Washington DC. Pours a hazy cola-like reddish brown with slight head. Leather aroma. Sour red fruits with a surprising sweetish finish.

Draft at Churchkey. Pours a dark reddish black. Aroma of oak and wood. Overly sour raisin on the tongue. Lots of oak and funk. Very metallic. Really acetic. Not very pleasant.

2012 release.

A: The body is an opaque brown with just a thin tan head that has poor retention, still this is a decent looking beer.

S: Slightly sour, slightly sweet vinegar aroma. maybe some cherries or apples.

T: The intro is very mild with a light tart and vinegar flavor, fruity, that progressively becomes sour to a slight pucker.

M: Light to medium bodied with light fizzy carbonation.

O: I somewhat enjoy this and I appreciate that this is how the style should be, but this is something I can only enjoy in small amounts.

Very pricey bottle, but very dark pour with a slight red tint with no head. Aroma is nothing but strong dark fruits. Very tarty.

Decent red ale. Typical bruery tartness. Some fruitiness. Good mouthfeel. The price is far too high though.

Nice red pour with a tan/red head. Aroma is sour, fruit, cherries. Im not sure what I was expecting. THis was a really good beer, but also fairlt shallow? The sourness is there, but it lacked a bit of complexity. Still, those ar eminor knocks against an excellent beer.

Bottle from maris. Pours deep red with a little bit of head that dissipates to nothing quick. The aroma has funky sour cherries, some white grape, oak, leather. The taste is very sour.. This reminds me of consecration a lot. Nice!

Thanks to the Pete and Jake for sharing this with my sorry ass. Pour deep murky red/brown, with a small tan head. Aroma is pretty darn nice of sour cherries, tart, slight funk, cherriesweets (?), Slight Wood, Cork, Slight leather. Really complex, and it sure has a lot Going on. The taste is pretty sour, with Some fruity sweet Notes as Well. Average Body, with a semi-fizzy carb.

Pours deep reddish brown with a small tan. Nose is vinegar, plums, apricot, cherries and funk! Taste is all sour and it's wonderful. Hint of bitterness though. Mouthfeel is crisp and clean, light body and a long finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
