Flanders Red Ale |  7.50% ABV

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.

Bottle shared by bring. Thank you, Barry.

Hazy reddish-amber body with a finger of slightly off-white head atop. The head settles to a crown, leaving only a small film on top. The nose is sharp and cherry-like, light acetic acid backed by a subtle dark malt foundation. The ripe cherry aroma is pretty awesome. It tastes toasty and sour, balsamic vinegar-like acetic acid at a perfect level. Cherry-like esters are prominent on the palate, though there's not much sweetness; it's a dry, woody and tannic beer, especially in the finish. This exceeded my expectations, one of the better American interpretations of this style.
