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.

Bottle from the summer of 2012. Served a bit too cold in a very large wine glass.

Classic reddish brown color with a moderate amount of dark beige head, looks good in the glass and certainly looks like a Flanders Red.

Smells like malt, some mildly sharp vinegar, some oak, red wine, and brown sugar. It all comes together really well, especially as it warms a bit in the glass; greater than the sum of its parts.

Tastes excellent, drier and more sour than most Flanders Reds, excellent blend of lactic and sharp acetic tartness, with underlying dry malt and barrel flavors and an impression of salt and perhaps other minerals. Lingering salinity and tingly acidity.

Medium bodied, smooth creamy bubbles, highly drinkable.

Glad to finally try this slightly aged; it's drinking well.
