Beer added by: Overlord on 12-20-2009

Oude Tart is our take on a Flanders Style red ale. It has won back to back gold medals in that category at the World Beer Cup (2010 & 2012) as well as a gold medal at the Great American Beer Festival in 2010. This sour red ale ages in oak barrels for anywhere from 6 to 18 months before being carefully blended to taste. The resulting beer is pleasantly sour with hints of leather, dark fruit and toasty oak.

750ml capped bottle traded to me from user mashmaster. thanks again! drank from my duvel tulip. very excited to try this after having it at EBF this year.

A- the pour is a murry/hazy brown colored body with reddish highlights. there is a small eggshell colored head on top that has just above average retention. small spots of lacing are left on the sides of my glass.

S- the first thing i pick out of the nose are cherries and vinegar. this is going to be pretty sour. some other various berries show up also. a little bit of the barnyard funk i love from wild brews. some oak shines though towards the end.

T- the taste starts out with moderate levels of vinegar/acid before moving to the fruitier side. cherries, plums, and other random berries. not as much noticeable funk in the taste. a little bit of the barrel comes through towards the end.

M- the beer is sour without being too overpowering. very nicely done. the body is on the lower side of medium with an active carbonation. not overly dry either.

O- i really enjoyed this. one of the better brews ive had from the bruery. this is something id gladly seek out again. the alcohol is masterfully hidden. (1,170 characters)

Had this one during the 'We Want The Funk!' tasting that was graciously hosted by beermeX2! Big thanks goes out to beermeX2 for sharing this one with the group! I was lucky enough to get to try the Oude Tart with Sour Cherries awhile back, so let's see how this one compares... Served from bottle into a Mikkeller flute. Poured a reddish brown with a one finger light tan head that subsided to a minimal amount slowly. Maintained decent lacing throughout the glass. The aroma was comprised of sweet malt, sour, slight funk, cherry, and fruit. The flavor was of sweet malt, cherry, funk, sour, and slight tart. It had a light feel on the palate with high carbonation. Overall this was a pretty good brew. The key difference between this brew and the other was that the cherries aren't nearly as pronounced in this one. This cuts back on the sour/tart aspect of this one a little bit. However this one is still quite enjoyable. The aroma and flavor here are quite well balanced and keep you guessing on what the overwhelming note will be the next time you go in for a sip. Definitely worth trying or getting your hands on. (1,120 characters)

Poured into a wine glass, revealing a murky ruddy brown body under an airy and dying yellowish head. Smells sweet and sour with tart cherries and molasses.

Tastes less pungent than it smells, but refreshingly so with a mealiness and light sour presence. Meaty, savory. Mouthfeel is gentle with even mouth-filling carbonation to round out the medium-heavy body. Thickened with air. Very drinkable, as a meal or otherwise.

Overall I quite like it. A well-rounded beer. (468 characters)

A steady pour into my Lost Abbey Teku glass produces a three-finger thick, pale brown tinged, dark tan colored head. The beer is a concentrated, dark brown-amber color that shows a hazed, cranberry red hue when held up to the light. The aroma is huge with a bright, tart, super fruity, berry like character that is backed by a touch of nutty oxidation like character. The tartness is all lactic at first, but once I start to dig around there is a hint of acetic acid spiciness that also boosts a touch of vinegar (not quite as rich as balsamic, but certainly fruit leaning) character in the finish. The finish has a dry, cracker like grain character as well as a toasted whole grain note that adds a wholesome bread like character to the nose. Other than the tartness, this beer is relatively clean; meaning it isn’t overly funky, which is certainly in line with a traditional Flemish inspired beer (at least modern examples of such). The malt, oxidation and tartness all combine to provide a character that I want to describe as earthy for some reason. As the beer warms some acetone like character starts to become noticeable in the finish.

This still has quite the spritzy carbonation despite sitting in my glass for the last 10 minutes; it foams up a fair amount as it rolls across the tongue, which counteracts the viscous character from the oak and lactic acid contribution that provides this beer a definite texture. The dominant lactic tartness throughout is again anchored by a hint of acetic acidity in the finish that is fairly light and at just about the perfect amount (it is far less than that found in Rodenbach Grand Cru). There is a toasted oak character that provides a woodiness as well as some tannic astringency towards the finish. The red wine barrels come through quite well here, not just with the oak, but also with a deep, supporting fruitiness that provides a definite berry character that is understated but powerful in some way. The toasted oak character mixes with a solid toasted malt character that tastes of brown, whole grain bread and whole grain cracker notes that seem caramelized, but without any real sweetness (if that makes any sense). This beer tastes quite dry to me, but I have a feeling that is because I had a chocolate chip cookie a half hour ago. The whole grain / dry-caramelized malt character starts to come out more as the beer warms up.

My second pour of this sees me noticing the fruitiness quite a bit more again, b/c it is still cool and there is also a hint of sweetness to this brew that my palate is finally able to detect; flavors of strawberry (accentuated by the touch of acetic acid noticeable here) as well as the red-wine notes are noticeable. When the beer is cooler the astringent oak character is a bit more noticeable, it really softens up quite a bit as it warms. Actually the red wine character is quite a bit more noticeable when the beer is on the cool side too; really the maltiness comes out quite a bit more as the beer warms up and helps to soften up the other notes (which isn’t necessarily a good thing, depending on what your preference is).

Tasty enough, though I wouldn’t mind a touch more funkiness from something like Brettanomyces, but that would certainly put this outside the modern interpretation of a Flemish sour. I definitely like the body of this brew, it has some texture to it, but it is still fairly quaffable and the zippy carbonation helps to lighten things up enough. I feel like I shouldn’t like this as much as I am as it seems to be lacking in complexity, but damn, I am enjoying this quite a bit. The flavors are so well integrated and the oak / wine notes are at such a soft, integrated level that just makes this beer work quite well. Really it is the oak / wine notes that make this beer in the end, without them this beer would really need something or it wouldn’t be nearly as tasty as it is. (3,913 characters)

Big thanks to Alex and Bryna for the bottle. Consumed with beersack.

A - It pours an auburn-mahogany hue, and is capped with a splotchy tan head. Looks rustic, which is par for the Oud Bruin course.

S - The nose is strongly acetic, with notes of rotten apple and peach suggested. There is a good amount of wet wood and sweet brown sugar - cinnamon in the nose once the relative pungency of the acidity wears off. The nose, again, like the look, is rustic.

T - The flavor is acetic and tannic, fairly strongly, and is accentuated by slight unripe berry accents, or perhaps something astringent like pomegranate or cranberry. The apple and peach notes of the nose are there on the finish, along with a surprising amount of vanilla.

M - The feel is dry and somewhat sharp; the feel is enhancing.

O - This is a pretty good beer; it strikes me as somewhat akin to a very acidic Rodenbach Grand Cru. (898 characters)

Recently had this on tap, poured into a Tulip. Excellent brew.

Pours a Dark golden red which a redish mocha head. It smells tart, with hints of leather and brettanomyces. It tastes fantastically of cherries, very tart and funky. Excellent after taste as well. In terms of mouthfeel, this brew is extremely efferverscent, and very drinkable. Overall and excellent beer. (369 characters)

50th review.
Shared with my old friend Luke. Out of my Lost Abbey stemware...

A- Darkish brown with a reddish hue, a healthy white head. The head drops off, but retains a ring around the glass.

S- Tart cherries and funk. Acidic oak notes, and some sweet malt.

T- A deliciously crisp funky beer. Light notes of cherry and oak. A beautiful blend of funk/tart/fruit/sweetness. YUM!

M- Pretty much perfect. Crisp at first which transitions to sourness, fades to a perfect smooth aftertaste.

D- Unlike many sours, this stuff I can just go right through. The flavor is so balanced, it is amazingly easy to drink. Can't wait to get another bottle of this year from the RS. Probably the best Flanders I've had. (710 characters)

Decided to break this out on Super Bowl Sunday in honor of my 300th review! Poured into a Bruery tulip.

A - Pours dark mahogany with a generous, 2-inch head of tiny bubbles that eventually recedes to a thin ring and a slight haze.
S - Dark stone fruits dominate, mostly cherries, raspberries, currants and even cranberries. Red wine vinegar, lots of oak, tobacco and "funk" are present as well. Wonderful smelling beer.
T - Once again tart red berries dominate the palate, along with a dash of vinegar and a generous helping of oak, brown sugar, and vanilla. I'm pleasantly surprised that this isn't as sour as I'd expected, it's incredibly well balanced ad nuanced. Exceptional.
M - Slightly syrupy, with a medium-thin body and sharp, effervescent carbonation. Finishes with a pleasant drying of the mouth, like a tannin-laden red wine.
D - I could drink this all day long, a very difficult feat for a "sour".

One of the best beers I've ever had, I'd kill to have regular access to this. Glad I celebrated 300 with this! (1,024 characters)

A: Reddish brown with yellow highlights and a bubbly head ring.

S: Nice fruity tart aroma with big oaky vanilla notes and champagne like dryness. Some malt and acidic qualities as well.

T: Darker fruit sour notes comes into play here along with the lighter ones in the nose. I really like the rounded balance of the oak to the fruit in this beer, without too much sweetness.

M: Very carbonated, but it works with whats on the table flavorwise.

A Drinkable beer again from a company that keeps impressing me. (512 characters)

From 01/22/11 notes. Brought to a local tasting.

a - Pours a mahogany brown color with some reddish tint. One inch of white head and moderate carbonation evident.

s - Smells of sour fruits, most noticeably tart cherries, oak, acidic notes, fruity malts, some funky yeast. Smells awesome.

t - Tastes of sour cherries and other fruit, oak, fruity malts, some vanilla, and some funk. Again, very enjoyable.

m - Medium body and moderate carbonation. Very smooth body, quite easy to drink.

d - I thought this was an awesome flanders; probably the best I've ever had. This is the second best Bruery beer I've had too, only behind Black Tuesday. Would love to get another bottle of this one. (689 characters)

170th review on BA
on tap at RS party

App- The pour I got was a bit of a murky rough lighter brown. Small little head that settled quickly. A little dot of cling.

Smell- A really healthy dose of cherry and then you pick up some scents of woodiness, a little funk and some more red fruits.

Taste- A small taste of a similar flavor to vinegar with a kick of sour, had more of the red berry flavor and a touch of wood with a bready flavor.

Mouth- A nice beer with a medium body and a nice heafty carbonation level.

Drink- Was very good. Now I know why I was trying to trade for this for so long. I quess I don't have to now. I really enjoyed this beer. (654 characters)

Poured a dark brown in color with brown highlights that had a thin head and left a little bubbly lacing sticking to the glass. Upfront on the nose it had a big vinegar aroma alongside oaky funky barrel, vinous, and mild acidic notes. The vinegar and vinous flavor are more apparent on the palate with cherries, oaky, funky, and dark fruit accents but with mild acidic tart character. The brew was medium in body with a good amount of carbonation which had a sweet, fruity, acidic, oaky, and tart finish. I really really liked the oude tart with cherries but the regular OT is a damn solid flanders oud bruin. it drank good and was tasty. (637 characters)

From notes:

Someone traded me this one but I don't remember who. Thanks again. You CA guys are alright ;^)

Pours a dark mahogany/chestnut brown color with a very dark ruby red edges when held to a light source and a two finger frothy beige head that has a slight pink hue. Decent retention, only slowly fading into a lasting ring that leaves minimal spots of lacing behind.

Tart, earthy oak aroma that is vinous with dark fruit notes. Oaky tannis with subtle vanilla in the nose as well as hints of bugs and lacto. Lots of dark fruit especially tart cherry, grape and dark berries. Slight vinegar presence and again, the oak is very prominent n the aroma.

Tart and mouth puckering sweet without being overly acidic. Very vinous with a prominent earthy oak tannis character. Nicely balanced with the perfect combo of earthy oak tannis, vinous dark fruit and tart sourness. Hints of grape, tart dark cherries and other berries. Again, as in the aroma, the oak presence is prominent and adds to the complexity. Sweet and vinous with subtle vanilla from the oak. Tart, puckering finish with subtle vinegar sourness that leaves me craving another sip. A very complex, quaffable and interesting interpretation of the style. (1,221 characters)

A: Poured a deep redish brown color. While carbonated, it doesn't come out too much in apperance. Little retention.

S: BIG oak aroma followed by cherries with a good amount of funk mixed in. Very woody.

T: Nice balance of sweet, sour and tart. Like the nose, wood is the predominant player along side cheeries. The barnyard funk is in the back ground but makes itself known as well. very nice complexity. Very red wine taste with carbonation.

M: Med body. Very smooth. Great carbonation.

D: I could drink quite a bit of this. Like above, not too sweet, not too sour which makes for a nice drinkable beer. Killed a bottle with no problem. (642 characters)

Bottle, pors a really deep maroon with a creamy, lasting beige head. Nose is tight, woody, with dark cherries and a subtle brett twist. Nose is nice and reminds of of Veritas 003 more so than any other Flanders Red. Sweet and sour in the mouth, dark cherries, some wild yeast, some oak, really light balsamic vinegar. A weird finish that is kind of herbal and just doesn't fit in quite right. I like this but the flavors are kind of at odds with each other at times. Good. (472 characters)

Reviewed on 4/19/2010. Bottle. Pours a murky light brown with a reddish tint and a thick tan head. Aroma of sour malt, sour milk, sweet candy. Flavor is quite tart initially with sweetness following and a malty, bready finish. Nice palate, very easy to drink for a sour. Tasty! (277 characters)

2010 vintage. Received from the generous neorunner in the Blind Beers BIF and reviewed blind.

Pours from the bottle a deep amber that coalesces in the glass to opaque dark chocolate. There's only a little clarity and maroon highlights, revealed by a hold to the light. A prodigious foamy head of medium tan about two fingers tall pops and fizzles away rather quickly, becoming a thin yet creamy and resilient top layer. The second pour from the 750 begets an even larger head about four fingers tall, but it still fizzles out with alacrity. Not much in the way of lace.

In the nose: Dr. Pepper, a tiny bit of vanilla, some cherries and moderate tartness.

The sour notes are kicked up a notch in the flavor and matched with a nice sweetness. Cola, vanilla, black cherries and some vinous oak meld to create a profile that makes me think of sour black cherry soda.

A light, tickly carbonation causes the beer to fizz up quite a bit as it moves about the mouth. The body is soft and medium-light, while the alcohol is noticeable as a slight warming in my throat.

Drinkability is decent. The tartness never becomes overpowering, and the flavor profile is nice, but fairly basic. (1,184 characters)

A: Poured a nice deep rediish orange color. Quite vibrant for the style. A finger and a half of white head with a touch of lacing. Quite a bit of visible carbonation.

S: The nose was quite nice. A mix of oak cherries and a mild sourness. I did get a little bit of leather is the nose which is always interesting and appreciated. The lactic acid was present throughout but was never overwhelming which I think turns people off from this style.

T: The cherry taste really makes this beer for me. The oak and lactic sourness were there but were never overwhelming. Only got a touch of that big vinegar taste associated with the style. It is there but nice and mellow. A little bit funky and I got a bit of white pepper and some other spiciness as well. Really complex.

M: Medium body a little bit syrupy. They nailed the carbonation on this one. Well carbonation without being abrasive as some wilds can get.

D: A really boring and great beer. It had so much going on but it was drinking like a champ. I would recommend this beer to anyone looking to get into the style. (1,071 characters)

Huge thanks to davidsk for giving me the opportunity to try this beer. Poured from a 750 mL bottle into a tulip glass.

A- Pours a dark, mahogany with ruby hues. Produced two fingers width of off-white head, reduced to a foamy, thick ring throughout consumption. Minor lacing as consumed.

S- Very aromatic. Tons of cherries and a little bit of oak upfront. The background has a nice, light vinegar lactic thing going on...offered some nice depth.

T- Wonderful, smooth cherry flavor upfront. The fruit flavor intensifies and tapers midway through. Finish has a light vinegar flavor with a bit of sharp sourness more akin to wild ales. Pretty complex.

M- As it warmed, the texture became much thicker. Medium bodied with a slight creaminess. Very nice.

D- This was really easy to put down. Great taste and great flavors.

Overall, a different take on a tradition flanders, but still very well done. Most flanders have an intense vinegar acidity, where as the lactic sourness in this beer was more on line with a lot of the american wild ales I have had. Even though it was different, I still loved this beer, just don't expect a huge vinegar presence....highly recommended. (1,175 characters)

750ml capped bottle, shared at a small tasting by thebouch01 - after having a few samples of this at GABF (and being a huge lover of the style) i was looking for more.

A - poured with an inch of loose, bubbly and slightly creamy light tan colored foam. the beer is moderately cloudy, and a wonderful deep ruby & black cherry color.

S - cherries, vanilla, and oak supply the sweetness as vinegar, hay, lactic acid add the character.

T - begins with a crisp, slightly vinegary sweetness which brings along with it cherries, vanilla, sweet tart candy, red grapes, oranges, and peaches. oak adds a touch more sweetness and body. lactic acid clings to the back of the tounge. complex and delicious.

M - effervescent, light crispy body. very, very dry finish with lingering fruity sweetness, tart, and vinegar acidity.

D - big fan of this one. refreshing yet slightly abrasive (with deliciousness) at times. would have no problem sipping on a whole bottle of this myself. (971 characters)

Five ounces poured into a pint glass. One bottle shared between five guys a a mini-tasting.

3.5 A: Dirty amber brown color. Just short of one finger of frothy light tan head that falls quickly.

4.5 S: Tangy lactic acid. Sharp oakiness, some tannic astringency that doesn't distract. Toasty. Wild apple and something along the lines of dark cherry.

4.5 T: Good amount of acetic acid backed by tangy lactic acid. Wild apple again with what I can only describe as a cherry/red currant hybrid. Very tasty.

4.0 M: Lighter body. Nice spritzy carbonation. Good, but this would benefit from a touch more body.

4.5 D: Definitely a solid beer. Easily the best Bruery beer I've had thus far though that isn't saying a lot given the garbage I've had. In any case, I definitely would like to drink this again. Solid all around and goes down easy. (838 characters)

T: The taste is amazing. Cherry sweetness, beautiful tartness, slightly sour and a touch of oak. Very yummy.

M: Medium to light mouthfeel which fits very well for this beer during the summer. Carbonated very nicely. Quite refreshing on a warm summer day (or night out here in Southern California).

Finally got to try this, and it did not dissappoint. The best thing about Bruery beers is their great body and mouthfeel, and this one is no exception. The pour is cola brown with a creamy, slowly dissipating beige head. The smell, while reminesect of Rodenbach, is earthier. Taste is along the lines of an aged Rodenbach - NOT the Grand Cru. Body is smooth, carbonation great. Drinkability is super. All in all, this really reminds me more of a Flanders Red, but there is nothing wrong with that. (497 characters)

I opened this gem from the cellar with family before we headed out for a wonderful night on the town, celebrating my (then) fiancée and my bachelor/bachelorette party. Poured into a snifter.

The beer looks just beautiful in the glass. A copper color with red and brown streaks swirling around. A thin white head sticks around for a bit then becomes just a thin film. It's easily re-awakened by agitating the snifter. The beer is cloudy and there are some major differences from glass to glass as we work through the bottle. Overall, it's still a nice looking Flanders Old Bruin and very few bottled bruins have impressed me this much.

If you love this style, you know what to expect from your first sniff of a freshly poured glass. But this one is special. Sure the requisite components of the bouquet are all there: sour cherries, vinegar-esque acetic acid, oak tannins, and a touch of barnyard funk. But there are also some woody spices, green apples, and vanilla. The beer is expressive and wonderful.

The taste is sublime. This is now my favorite beer in one of my favorite styles ever, and I must seek out more. Oude Tart is a traditional Flanders Bruin with tons of oak and lots of pleasant intricate tastes. It's sour and reminiscent of tart cherry and lush green apples. There's a touch of spice, namely from the oak - vanilla, brown sugar, and red wine like tannins. And a wonderful acetic tone brings it all home. More wood and depth than just about any Flanders out there.

So it's obvious that when this beer is in my mouth, my taste buds are happy. But how exactly does it feel? Well, the medium body is lush and never compromising and the lively carbonation makes it feel lighter and much more enjoyable. All around, this beer is so close to perfect in just about every way and the taste makes it the best Flanders style beer I've ever had. Just wonderful stuff, can't wait to drink it again! (1,910 characters)
