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.

750 ml bottle shared by boamr, thanks Ryan. Poured a dark reddish/brown body with a small light beige head. Aroma is tart and sour with notes of sour cherry, slight vinegar, acidity, slight band aid. Medium body with average carbonation soft carbonation and an acidic burn ont he finish. Flavor is tart and sour with notes of vinegar, band aid and sour cherry. Solid beer that will probably get even better with a few years under it.

LIVEFAST (62) - Mount Misery, Valley Forge, - NOV 23, 2011
750mL, final beer of the tasting. Pours a ruddy red/brown with a loose tan head. Nose is balsamic viegar, vanilla, cherries, and a slight metallic finish. A serious brown malt and creamy vanilla background try hard to keep up with a sharp, acidic sourness that includes balsamic and sour cherries. Great stuff, probably my favorite American made Flanders.

DalzAle (2030) - Eden Prairie, Minnesota, USA - NOV 18, 2011
Bottle. Clear dark reddish brown pour, little ring of carbonation and a nice sour cherry aroma. Flavor is dry woody, light cherry, stone fruit, lightly sour and lingers dryly on the aftertaste. Nice easy drinker.

LamarBurton (376) - California, USA - NOV 18, 2011
2011 vintage thanks to Greg. Pour is slightly hazy brown, just a bit of head, no lacing. Aroma is brett, cherries, lactic, nice. Taste is cherries, light funky fruit. Light tartness. Not bad, but needs some age.

johnnnniee (4049) - Bedford, New Hampshire, USA - NOV 4, 2011
Pours a solid and clear dark brown with deep ruby highlights when held to light. I can smell the tart fruit as soon as I pop the cap on this baby. Sour cherries, lemons, sweet brown sugar, hints of vinegar, light sherry notes. Taste is a bit more sour than the nose lead me to believe. Huge lemony tartness with hints of barnyard funk hit right up front. Sour cherries and a hint of sweetness sweep across the gullet before finishing with a lingering sweet sour and funky aftertaste. Medium body and level of carbonation, tart acidic mouthfeel. I really enjoyed this one, Im glad I got to try it.

sloth (2868) - Ceciltucky, Co., Maryland, USA - OCT 29, 2011
Medium sized off-white head with good retention and lace. Cloudy, light amber hued brew. Spunky nose that jumps out at you, light fruits, citrus and wood with a lil grainy note. Body is med/light with a soft carbonation, nicely tart, lightly acidic, gently puckering. Tart fruity flavors, hint of cherry and wood, some berry notes with a small dose of malt. Dry tart finish is cleansing, enjoyable.
