Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: Overlord on 12-20-2009

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 purchased in the greater Washington D.C. area, bottled 8//13 (2013 vintage), poured into my Weyerbacher Tulip glass per their request, drank 11/28/13 over an hour.

A: 3/3 - ruby red-to-dark brown coloration, little clarity (cannot see through), tannish-brown head on first pour and persists as a creamy 1/2 finger head throughout drinking , highly carbonated with bubbles pouring off the bottom of the glass; moderate alcohol legs

S: 9/12 - subtle vinegar and barnyard qualities, not picking up on much of the oak-barrel qualities

T: 16/20 - on the anterior tongue, there's an immediate sourness - vinegar, cherries and stone fruit; in the middle of the mouth, some of the vinous qualities come through with some background malts and alcohol and some oak qualities peeking out; minimal alcohol flavors; little-to-no aftertaste

M: 4/5 - moderately bodied and high carbonated

O: 8/10 - nice oude bruin but not as complex or oak-aged as I was hoping for; it's an expensive beer but still worth a try

TOTAL = 40/50
