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.

A: Pours a hazed, dark garnet red color. A dense two finger khaki head rises with excellent retention. Plenty of sticky lace is left behind.
S: Tart and fruity in the nose. Toasted malts with light wood and even a hint of sweetness. Finishes with some tart cherries. Really well incorporated.
T: Tart and fruity again. The tartness gently moves toward acidity but never overwhelming. Acidic, almost tannin like cherries. Toasted malts with a hint of sweetness. Wood and an acidic dry bite lingers. Really nice.
M/D: A medium body that is perfectly effervescent and crisp. There is a bit of sweetness, but finish with a great dry bite. The acidity takes over a little, but overall a great Flanders to sip on.

The Bruery is best when they stick to basic. but unique styles IMO. This is a perfect example. This and the regular saisons have always been my personal favorites from their lineup. Really well made that does not try to be over the top, just because they can be. Highly recommended.
