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: It pours a deep ruby-brown, with a thin rad that vanishes almost instantly.
S: I get plums, orange, pineapple, some malty sweetness, and a bit of boozy funk.
T: It has a champagne-like dryness, a lot of tang, some plum, followed by an orange pith-like bitterness. Finally there are distinct vanilla and anise notes at the end.
M: crisp, effervescent, and refreshing
I: It's delicious a lot of funk and complexity.

Pours a dark ruby color with an offwhite 1 finger head that leaves a ring.

Smell is tart vinegar, cherries, lemon, oak, raspberries, unripe peach, and lactic acid. Very inviting nose on this.

Taste is the same with a sharp tartness, just a big sour punch, and then fruit flavors start to appear. Theres an oak character in there, but no bourbon or anything. green apple, sour grapes, This beer is quite sour but I like that.

Feel is spot on, can't improve on that.

Overall, a nicely done sour, but I don't think this is very similar to alot of other flanders reds out there. Its much more sour.
