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.

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.

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.

bottle thanks to Matt or Daniel at the tasting we held at the Sugar Land Saucer. Pours dark brown with tan bubbles in lieu of head. Nose is of tart cherries and wood. Taste is of sour cherries and wood. Mouthfeel is thin and slightly mouth-puckering. Good sour brew.

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 (2876) - 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.

Draft. Hazy reddish brown pour with a nice beige head. Aroma has lots of horseblanket, oak, leather, cherry. Taste is quite sour, lightly acidic, balsamic, more oak and cherry, light sweetness. Palate is tart, dry, soft. Very nice example of the style.

Dixonian (1562) - Plano, Texas, USA - OCT 10, 2011
On tap @ the brewery. Reddish brown with some creamy off-white head. Aromas of oak, leather, and cherry - smells wonderfully sour. Flavor is just as good with sour cherry, wood, and ripe berries. Great mix of tart and sour - I really love what these guys do with the style.

Oakes (16938) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 5, 2011
Dull brown. No head. Doesnt look very good. Aroma is woody and a little bit balsamic with some complex fruitiness. Tart, woody and slightly balsamic palate matches the aroma well. A fairly clean American sour.

NobleSquirrel (3438) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - OCT 4, 2011
Draft at GABF. Pours a nice looking reddish brown with a thin head of sticky bubbles. Nose is nicely lactic and dry. Reminds me of the old La Folie. Some cherry notes and soft bread as well. On tasting, very nice level of acidity without being overbearing. Nice and rich quality that dries out and is quite refreshing. Light Brett note that lends some cherry. Really fine and nuanced old school sour. Excellent.
