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.

@ Tyler's Bottle Shop

Served a deep, auburn colored body with only a slim, bubbly covering on top. Tart, acidic fruity aroma...cherry, vinegar, brown sugar, dry floral notes, and a warm spiciness. Juicy, tart flavor: sour apple, berry, light wood, some wine, and not too much sweetness from the malt. Dry and lightly effervescent making for a super refreshing beverage. Very, very satisfying and delicious.

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

A: Deep brown with a copper glow. Head is a nice tight 1/2 inch. Pretty, but time to stop looking and start sniffing....

S: A whole lot of smells here. Cinnamon, nutmeg, a hint of licorice, woody dusty aromas, bright (almost lemony) floral, and stinky barnyard hay... A nostril pleasure indeed.

T: Deeply sweet and very mouth wateringly tart. Cherries, white wine fruity, leafy woods, and much more. Nice implosive drying through and beyond the finish.

M: Smooth and soft with a sharp edge. Mmmm.

O: Excellent.

Vintage 2010

Dark, deep and roasted color. Big foamy off-white head. No lacing. Clarity is nice too

Tons of roasty cherry. Oakey and vanilla too. Tart and acidic. Milky, but cherry is almost over whelming..

Sweet and sour; Cherry and dry. Tart, acidic, smooth, delicious, slightly bitter and dark red cherry. The only thing I would dismiss is some of the super dark roasty cherry flavors, slightly detracts from the mouthfeel.

Awesome brew! I can't believe this is the first time I've had it... Highly recommended and can't wait for next years release. Exactly the beer I wanted.

A: Pours a deep deep ruby redish/brown, nearly opaque, with a 2 finger head on my aggressive pour

S: sour, tartness, slight sweet undertone with a bit of woody-vanilla

T: Two words tart and delicious. This is mouth-puckering tart and I love it. There is a sweet undertone that follows the nose and a really nice tart/sweet/faint vanilla finish. Definately picking up small hints of oak barrel but mostly sour.

M: Nice light mouthfeel. Well balanced.

Overall: this beer is delicious. The taste and mouthfeel really stood out. The appearance was lacking, and the smell was somewhere in the middle. This is one of my favorite Bruery beers. If you like mouth puckering sour like I do then you'll really enjoy this.
