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.

A: Copper body, can form a velvety-looking oak-colored head, but fades quickly. No carbonation visible but some sediment is apparent at the end.

S: Clear tart cherries, maybe faint wood in the back. Simple, but powerful and satisfying.

T: Fantastic sour character, sour cherries are supremely refreshing without any detectable sweetness. Fantastic long finish, possibly with a note of spice on it? Not sure where that's coming from, but it works.

M: Light bodied, lively carbonation but smooth, very low viscosity. My only complaint (with anything of this beer) is that it leaves my teeth feeling a bit gritty.

O: Incredible. Unabashed sour character, with clear, natural cherry notes that last on the palate, the barrel aging surely contributing to the sourness and the smoothness. Quality throughout. I wouldn't think twice about spending my money on this beer again.
