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.

look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

2013 bottle, this is my 3rd time having this I believe. Updated from a 4.5 'Had' rating.

A - Murky maroon with some orange highlights and a tan head. A thin ring and some spots of a cap remain by the end. Some flecks sit at the bottom.

S - Pretty sour with lots of lemon and dark fruit (cherries mostly) front and center. Lots of oak too with some vanilla and caramel as well.

T - Some more earthy funk and vinous tones showing up here, the main focus remains straight up puckering lemony tartness. Sour cherries prevalent as well but light on the 'dark fruit' end of the spectrum, considering the style. Nice vinegar, buttery oak barrel, and light vanilla sweetness.

M - Somewhat big feeling and smooth with medium carbonation. Sourness forces you to sip and savor.

O - Intense sourness overpowers most of the semblance of your typical Flanders, maybe would've liked it more balanced overall but still quite good.
