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.

750mL into a tulip. Pours a reddish brown w/ a thin beige head that settles to a light film, moderate carbonation.

Aroma is, not surprisingly, tart and oaky. Aroma reminds me of what Rodenbach Grand Cru tastes like.

Taste is wayyyy more sour than the nose indicates. Not vinegary, but almost puckeringly, crab-apple sour. Recalibrating... Dry oak is there in spades, almost feels like I have a wood chip in my mouth. But in a good way. Can't stop sipping this, and I find something new with each sip.

Mouthfeel is crisp and dry, evaporates off the palate.

Overall a wonderfully dry, oaky sour beer.
