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.

Vintage is 2013

Big aroma of cherries and oak on the nose. With a dark fruit aroma, like a plum. This was a big and bold sour. Puckering occurs instantly. Oak, vinegar, apple, a dark cherry profile in the taste. Another great sour. I didn't expect anything less. It captures all of the right flavors.

A: Deep red to purple in color. Shades of brown and a tiny fizzy white head.

S: Fuuuunky! Tart, yeasty, vinegary, fruity, Flemish sour goodness.

T: Incredible. So much funk and yeast and fruit and wood.

M: Dry but deliciously tart and fruity. Sooo drinkable, too.

O: For a sour this is world class. Everything you'd expect from this style is there...and more.
