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.

Poured at the tasting room. Brownish red pour, mostly clear, with a small white head that recedes quickly. Big time sour vinegar aroma, stronger than any other sour I have had. Maybe some light sweet apples and cherries as well. Flavor follows with a massive hit of sour, some light funky vinegar, and a bit of sour fruits. There is a big dry oak influence here that differentiates this from others I have had in the style. Light sweet malts remain on the palate. This was heavier than the Berazzled, and definitely hit the taste buds hard. Enjoyable.

A-Pours red. A dark, dried red. Nearly brown but definitely red. Think bubbly head leaves freckles of lace.

S-Tartness, caramel, darker fruits. Sour cherry. Hints of oak. It's tart but also has a pleasing base behind the oak and souring treatment.

T-The flavor is much livelier than the nose. I enjoyed the nose but the flavor mimics it and trumps it. The sourness is stronger and more sprightly. The caramel malty sweetness sneaks in behind the blast of tartness. Caramel dipped sour cherries with a tiny hint of chocolate. Malt vinegar and wood.

M-Medium bodied. Tiny, tickling bubbles. Lingering sourness on my lips.

O/D-Another expensive Bruery beer I initially regret buying and am subsequently satisfied after imbibing.

Appearance: dark red, a little hazy. Not opaque but pretty darn dark. Healthy strawberry blonde head and lacing.
Smell: all the characteristics of a Flanders red. Tart, sour, fruity. A little restrained funk.
Taste: much like the nose with more intense tart, sour characteristics. Finish is funky.
Overall: still learning my way around the sours. This delivers for sure.
