Flanders Red Ale |  7.50% ABV

Availability: Fall

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.

Cheers to Goblinmunkey7 for sharing this beer

Consumed 9/16/12

Appearance: Dark, dark amber with a lot of brown - certainly darker than the average Flanders Red - minimal off-white head, leaves a few streaks of lacing

Smell: Wet, musty basement - some yeasty funk, mildly tart and sour - some dark fruits - a touch of vinegar - very malty - lots of amber malts, with an above average amount of sweetness

Taste: Pretty mild, more malty than weird - some vinegar, some musty flavors, mildly tart and mildly sour - kind of tastes like it could have soured a bit more - some nice, funky flavors in the aftertaste, mildly acidic - some dark fruits and some booze - sweet, but not too sweet

Mouthfeel: Full body, minimal carbonation, wet

Overall: Good, but not exceptional for the style

Figures. I just complained about a beer being too over-the-top sour (Cascade Sang Noir), and now I'm drinking a beer that I think lacks sourness. This is tasty, but there are better, more readily accessible Flanders Reds out there.
