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.

HonusWagner (2168) - Florida, USA - JUN 3, 2014
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.

Aromas of oak, red wine, lemon, and hay. Taste is lemon, straw, barnyard funk, strawberry, berries, red wine, some sweet malts, and red wine oak. There is then a gushing sour lemon after taste that dries out into an oak red wine.

Rask0lnikov (1194) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - APR 21, 2017
750ml bottle. Pours reddish brown colour. Thin beige head. Rich aroma of dark fruits. Hints of vanilla, acidity, oak, earthiness in the aroma. Acidity, oak, red wine, dark fruits in the taste. Dry finish. Acidity, apples, caramel in the aftertaste. Lots of complexity, very well balanced brew. Rather light bodied, medium carbonated, really good beer.

Medium-high sourness. Oaky and relatively full body for a sour. Exceptional for a darker sour. Hop grenade.

willisread (3257) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - APR 9, 2017
Tap at Mellow. Pours a clear, deep copper with a small head that dissipates quickly. Big cherrry nose that really dominates...some light raspberry, almond and crab apple aromas and some oaky craeminess as it warms. Great carbonation with more wood and cherry on the finish. Solid!

Bottle shared with the KL tasting group. Poured a murky medium reddish brown with a thin broken off white head. The aroma is biscuit dough yeast, tart red berry fruit, toasty, woody. The flavour is moderate sour with a light, tart acidic fruit palate. Medium bodied with soft carbonation.

olsvammel (7209) - rebro, SWEDEN - MAR 18, 2017
Bottle from Beergium. Fruity and tart with cookies and a chemical note, aceton. Similar taste with a hint of red wine and oak. Sharp mouthfeel. Rough overall and the chemical note is disturbing.
