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.

Tap at the Bruery. It has green leafy cherries and strawberries. Like a soured fruit juice syrup. (In a good way).

Idiosynkrasie (8216) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - JAN 3, 2018
750ml bottle. Hazy brown colour with small, frothy, half-way lasting, minimally lacing, beige to tan head. Tart-ish, woody, yeasty spicy, slightly fruity aroma, fruit acidic hints of raspberry, some morello. Taste is sour, woody, slightly tannic and fruity, minimally vinous, hints of raspberry, morello, some leather. A style match, of course, but not overly complex.

750ml bottle share. Pours a dark ruby red. Aroma: cherry liqour, oak, sour cherries, mild herbal notes. Taste: sour cherries, grapefruit, mild fruit punch flavours. Mild boozy aftertaste. Medium bodied. Moderate to strong sourness. A little bit too sour but still very tasty and complex.

Bottle, aged at least a few years (old label). Murky brown pour with a small tan head. Tart, some subtle cherry and other fruit notes, pretty oaky. Nice classic version of the style.

Vom Fass Stone Brewing Berlin 2017-09 getrunken. Ein deutlich verhaltenes Sour Red mit verhaltener Säure aber dafür ist es echt süffig.

Stoned99 (1704) - St-Jean-sur-Richelieu, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 9, 2017
750ml bottle shared at epic Cantillon tasting. Aroma: caramel, candied fruits, chocolate, molasses. App: dark red, small off white head, good lacing. Taste and palate: medium body, moderate carbonation, light to begin sweetness, moderate acidity with bone dry acidity finish. Overall: impressed. Didn't think I would like it. Glad I tasted it. Well balanced. Well made. Original. Liked it a lot.

Piotrek4 (320) - Lublin, POLAND - SEP 1, 2017
W aromacie jest trochę wiśni i wanilii, ale zdecydowanie dominuje jednak ocet winny. W smaku na początku znowu wiśnia, z tym że w słodkiej odsłonie, następnie lekki kwasek i orzechy włoskie, a na koniec bardzo rozbudowana ostatnia faza odczucia smaku. Szczegółowo, ocet, delikatnie ściągające drewno, wanilia i ciasto migdałowe. Ogólnie bardzo fajny Flanders, mocno octowy.

ALIBALI (2707) - Kiel, GERMANY - AUG 21, 2017
2013er Vintage Bottle. 0,75l vom DEMOLEN Online Shop. Ein Container voll MischbeerFlavours krönt den furztrockenen CremeFlanderer. Unreife Erdbeeren,edelste FassEleganz & REDWINETARTNESS sorgen ebenfalls für Begeisterung.

Listigovers (1383) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 11, 2017
20170811 - 2015 bottle, a bit flat unfortunately, still a tiny bit of CO2. Quite black beer. I’m guessing it would be much more tart with carbonation and lower pH. However, it was still a very sour beer, but sweet and sour together. Tons of funky flavours and a lot of rich brown malts, balsamic, and wood. A bit of a soy sauce texture, but not flavour. Sweet and puckering sour at the same time, tasty, really wish I had a fresh bottle, this was already vintage at the shop.
