Flanders Red Ale |  7.50% ABV

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 rich amber brown with a luxuriously creamy head. Not much lacing.

S - Cranberry, oak, lemon peel, faint vinegar and leather. Some barnyard funk.

T - WOW. Just really creamy and rich at first, then bam -- it's on -- with tart, tangy cranberries and cherry. Lemon and lime zest intermingle with brown sugar and vanilla. Sour apples bring up the rear.

M - Absurdly soft and creamy considering how puckeringly tart this beer is. Nice long finish with an endless parade of flavors unfolding.

O - Impressive on all fronts. A truly special beer.

Bottle from 2012

A: poured into a Duvel Tulip to a deep brown with a slight red hue. the beer is topped by a fluffy and rocky two finger light tan head that fades to a nearly invisible collar around the edge of the glass
S: smells of sour cherries, vanilla, funk and oak
T: taste is sour cherries, with a strong acetic sourness, a bit of funk, some vanilla, slight caramel and oak. swallow is more sour cherry, funk, and oak
M: lighter side of medium in body with soft and adequate carbonation. this beer has a drying finish
O: This is a fantastic beer and a great representative for the style. It just doesn't get much better
