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: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Poured from a 750ml bottle into my Duvel tulip glass.

A: A browning red color (mahogany like) with a very minimal light brown head. No glass lacing.

S: Loads of tart dark fruits with some woody notes and slight mustiness.

T: Wow, pucker up this is one sour beer. Dark fruits of cherry and plum mix with some chewy woody and leathery notes. No sweetness at all, but I get some toffee or brown sugar flavors that are not sweet. Does that make sense? Anyway, the tartness lasts and lingers all the way through the finish. Fantastic beer.

M: Full, tart, light carbonation, surprisingly easy to drink.

O: An excellent sour, maybe one of the best. This is one fantastic beer. If you like sours, this is one you need to try.

Overall I'll seek this one out again. Expensive beer, but well worth the money. Benchmark sour.

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.
