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. We seem to be doing quite well with continuing that great Belgian tradition of wild ales as this one is our most award winning beer, having won back to back gold medals at the World Beer Cup (2010 & 2012) in the Flanders Style Red Ale category and also a gold medal at the Great American Beer Festival in 2011. This flight features 3 vintages of Oude Tart- 2011, 2012 and 2013.
