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.

Tortman18 (174) - Batavia, Illinois, USA - SEP 1, 2014
Very dark, opaque brown/ruby, with a thin cap of off-white head. Lacing was very wet. Aroma is very tart and sugary with hints of cherry, lemon zest, grapefruit, caramel and red wine. The taste is like a lemon warhead. Very tart and dry with a lot of caramel, cherry and red wine. The finish was very dry and became eve more tart as it lingered.

I get heavy molasses notes, a little brown sugar, and some ginger and another spice - maybe cinnamon? Im not sure - all with a mellow sourness that is clearly there, but by no means oppressive. This is one of the best beers Ive had in a while.

2013 bottle. This is one seriously well-executed Flemish Red -- its leathery, a bit fruity, very sour, and really complex, and it manages to capture the hallmarks of the style really well. Delicious.

Pours a dark mahogany with an off-white creamy head. The nose feels authentically Flemish, hitting the expected oaky vanilla and sour cherry notes synonymous with this style. Smells like a musty attic, but filled with brown sugar, dried apricot, red apple, and grape candy. It first hits the tongue with sharp, dry oak that overwhelms the otherwise refreshing and juicy flavor. Again, Oude Tart seems to come straight out of the Rodenbach playbook. With warmth it develops a chewy, cherry-filled character. Blackberries, leather, a hint of iron. Ends on a sticky oaky note that could have used more subtlety. Difficult to criticize such a spot-on effort but its over-oaked quality holds it back from joining the ranks of La Folie which remains my favorite of the American takes on this style.
