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.

Poured from a 750ml into a Belgian goblet. 2013 vintage of Oude Tart. Abv on label is 7.5%. Stored correctly in 55% and below.

Pours a deep ruby red, almost ancient rust color, with a 3 inch frothy white head that dissipates faster than Donald Trump's real estate empire. No visible lacing at all which is characteristic of the style.

Smells of lactobacillus, straw or hay, raspberries, sweet malts, and bad decisions.

Tastes of delicious, sour, tart, amazingness! For all you beer lovers, you need to try this beer! Please share with a friend!

Mouthfeel is like a slight prickliness followed by a pleasant sour patch kids aftertaste that lingers on the tongue. I feel like I just got sour patched
Punched.

Overall I would drink the shit out of this beer! It's super sour and super hard to find. I haven't had the earlier vintages but I imagine they will be amazing as the years come.

For all your beer aficionados out there, Please share brews like this with a friend. The more people that know about great beer, the better life will be!

Cheers!
Wade
