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.

UPDATED: DEC 8, 2014 The good bottles of this are nicely semisweet with hints of cherry and a mild tartness that reminds of Rodenbach Classic, the less good bottles are really vinegar heavy and the fruit doesnt come through as well because of the high acidity. I am rating this tilted towards the good bottles, which Ive mostly been lucky enough to experience.

BlazerT (853) - Sosnowiec, POLAND - FEB 22, 2017
Bottle. Snifter. Red amber, medium hazy, with almost no head. High acidic and vinous profile. Some acetone, just a slight of facto. Aroma is mostly barnyard, cherries, wood, some maltiness. Taste is moderate to light heavy sweet and moderately acidic. Wine BAging is noticeable thru the degustation by some nice light to moderate berries notes. Quite tart in the finish. Medium body, oily texture, average carbonation. In overall very acidic and vinous brew. The maltiness is rather moderate. In general very different from classical Rodenbachs. Fruits are not so subtle here, strong vinous profile with high sourness.

Deep brown pour with a thin white head. The nose is bright and juicy. Theres a bit of intense fruit and some cherry and vineous fruit. Has a bit of light oak and a touch of balsamic character. Assertive acidity with a bit of nice fruitiness. Quite a lovely beer.

Pours a dark red to brown. Tart aromas with strong hints of cherries and notes of oak. Tasting it, the first thing that hits you is the tartness followed quickly by a roastiness. May be a little too roasty for the style, but would be a good accompaniment to a smoked, fatty meat.

2013. Red wine. Red and dark fruits. Rich oak-tannins taste. Some not bad and acceptable vinegar. Sour enough. Perfect soft carbonation and pleasant mouthfeel. The best Sour Ive had from The Bruery.

Red ale, straight forward sour with hints of fruits and oak. You get some of the wine undertones but not much. A good go to sour.
