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.

Pours a deep almost opaque mahogany. A thin, white head. Aroma is stunning, grapes, oak and wine dominate. Flavor has a nice bit, wine character comes through strongly with a nice sour bite on the aftertaste, very nice sour

On tap during the 43 Hours Of Sour at The Birch, Norfolk, VA. Reddish brown pour with virtually no head. Notes of grape and oak in the aroma. Red wine really comes forward in the taste and the oak makes its way forward as this warms a bit. An outstanding sour ale.

I finally got to try this. It is worthy of it’s awards. There are tart, sour and vinegar like. This one is big on the vinegar. You can really taste the wine and the barrel. Very earthy and woody. Tastes young and sharp.

mikesaum (711) - Newark, Ohio, USA - SEP 13, 2012
Pours a dark dark red, practically brown with a cream colored head. Aroma is dark fruits, lots of tart cherries, some nice funkiness and some oaky hints. Wow the first sip of this is crazy sour and funky, a blast of tart cherry and some plum, hints of oak, very dry puckery finish, a lot going on the flavor, and pleasantly sour for sure, would love to get another bottle for the cellar.
