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.

Large 2 finger beige head, sparkly, quickly fading. Brew is a dark brown until held up to the light, which reveals gorgeous red highlights and a surprising clarity, with tons of bubbly action.

Tart and slightly funky, a lot of oak and sour notes in the nose. Dark fruit, lighter grains.

Extremely tart and sour up front, giving way (but never fading) to a smooth sweetness in the middle, and finished by a slight funk and sharp sourness on the end. Immediate pucker; sweet notes include red grapes and prunes, and nuts. Back-end carries a ton of oak and a nearly vinegar sour quality.

Up front pucker, and a slightly harsh vinegar finish; mostly smooth throughout. Medium-light feel, but it's still a slow drinking beer.

I don't feel that this beer stands out as an exceptionally good Flanders Red, but it's still an extremely tasty beer. At the price, I think I'd rather pick up a Rodenbach; if prices were equal, I still think I'd rather pick up a Rodenbach, but again, this is a good beer, no doubt.

1 year aged bottle.
