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.

750 mL bottle

Appearance: Pours a murky dark brown color with a thin rapidly dissipating beige head.

Smell: Tart cherries with a little added lactic punch.

Taste: Tartness hits you right away, with a nice cherry/blackberry underlying flavor. Tartness takes over the finish and continues to build.

Mouthfeel: Medium body, dry on the palate. Low carbonation level with a lingering tartness.

Overall: Very solid sour

The first time I tried Oude Tart my mind was blown. I've since discovered a new world of sour beer, but this one still stands out. It's sour, but balanced, and hits that sour note in the back of your mouth just right.
