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.

On tap @ provisions

Look: Deep brown in color with traces of red throughout. 1/4 inch head and no real retention

Smell: Lots of sour cherries on the nose and typical vinegar acidity

Taste: Similar to the nose except the tartness is quite a bit stronger than it is on the nose. For me personally it is just too much tartness. Typical flanders red ale

Mouthfeel: Medium body with medium to high carbonation and a dry tart finish

Overall: Flanders red's in general are a bit overwhelming for my palate but I am glad I got the chance to try this one. Recommended if you like your palate wrecked
