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.

Scopey (13330) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 15, 2012
From bottle at Sour & Bitter 2012. It pours very dark brown, with a thin tan film. The nose is sweet-sour, balsamic vinegar, red berry, syrup, wood, vanilla and almond. The taste is also sweet-sour, white and balsamic vinegar, tart lemon, grapefruit, red berry, wood and alcohol warmth, with lightly tart finish. Medium body, fine carbonation and moderate tartness. Well balanced. Definitely one of the best American interpretations of a Flemish red that Ive had.
