Flanders Red Ale |  7.50% ABV

Availability: Fall

Notes/Commercial Description:
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.

look: 3.75 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

750ml bottle poured into tulip 25/1/14

A hazed maroon liquid, two fingers of noisy tan foam hangs on for a few sips leaving no lace

S brown sugar, lots of cherry and raspberries, faint vanilla, some wood, vinegar, vinous notes are strong, smells like candy and I love it

T not quite everything the nose had going on but still very tasty, the fruit blends together and a little sour compared to nose, more wood and brown sugar, vinegars still there no booze anywhere

M medium bodied with soft carbonation, not overly sour, a little slick on the palate, no complaints in this department

O solid example of the style, nice mix of sweet and sour, sour but far from turning my mouth inside out, booze is completely hidden

tough sell with cheap bottles of Rodenbach on the same shelf but solid beer from start to finish and I can easily recommend it

look: 3 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

Pours hazy reddish brown, with thin off white head. Smell is mostly lemon and cherry. Smell is a little underwhelming for me. Taste is fantastic: very tart and crisp. Lemon / lime, green apples, oak. Not really getting the cherries that everyone else claims. Feel is astringent, tart, dry, light and crisp. Lively carbonation.

Overall, terrific. Supremely drinkable, refreshing and tons of tartness. Along with La Folie, this is one of my favorite all time Sours.

look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

A - Pours a rich amber brown with a luxuriously creamy head. Not much lacing.

S - Cranberry, oak, lemon peel, faint vinegar and leather. Some barnyard funk.

T - WOW. Just really creamy and rich at first, then bam -- it's on -- with tart, tangy cranberries and cherry. Lemon and lime zest intermingle with brown sugar and vanilla. Sour apples bring up the rear.

M - Absurdly soft and creamy considering how puckeringly tart this beer is. Nice long finish with an endless parade if flavors unfolding.

O - Impressive on all fronts. A truly special beer.

Serving type: on-tap
