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.

Appearance- Maroon-ish brown, with a foamy tan head that resembles pond scum.

Smell- Prunes, rotten cherries, booze

Taste- Sour cherries, more prunes, leather, kimchi, spoiled milk, bile, slight bitterness

Mouthfeel- Mouth puckering, astringent, well carbonated

Overall- I am not really a fan of most sours. I love the Duchesse de Bourgogne, but that beer has a fair amount of sweetness to it as well and more of a balsamic taste. This Oude Tart tastes extremely sour and I'm sure it would be great if that's all you're into, but it doesn't taste...GOOD. Not something I'd like to drink again.
