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.

Great nose, very dark look, very thick and opaque.
Not extremely carbonated, medium size bubbles, and does not develop a head. Smells woody, sour. After tasting it, it is very sour. One of the more sour beers I have tasted, it is definitively sour. It starts sour, and the sour tastes continues to the end. It doesn't turn dry or hoppy, it is pure sour.
A fermented concoction of berries.

Very pretty in the snifter the pinkish hue of the head, lightly set upon a body of deep auburn.

The aroma was sour and tart cherry, soft and subtle, but plenty sweet.

My expectations were a brutally tart and sour affair but found the flavor to be quite satisfying. Tangy, sweet, sour and of course tart, the cherry flavor is not overwhelming but simply pleasing.

The feel is easily drinkable, without any puckering effect and a sweetness tempered enough that the entire bottle could be enjoyed by ones self. Unfortunately I did not get to do so.

This was hyped both as too sour and tart and also as a World Class beer. My vote is for the later.
