Oude Tart is a Flemish-Style Red Ale aged in Red Wine barrels. This version had raspberries added for the final stages of barrel-aging. It's pleasantly sour and velvety, with hints of leather, tangy dark fruit, ripe raspberries and toasty oak. While the base beer is one of the more classic 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 border, 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.
