Notes/Commercial Description:
Oude Tart is our Flemish-style sour red ale that has won back to back World Beer Cup Gold medals in that category, as well as a Great American Beer Festival gold medal for the same. This is that same beer, but now with cherries to compliment the flavors of dark fruit, leather and toasty oak that the original is so well known for. While this beer will certainly age fine, we think that fruited beers are best fresh as the fruit character can dissipate with time.

A - Geeze that is a beautiful looking color: deep mahogany cranberry. Thin halo of light khaki head has low retention and virtually no lace.

S - Whoa. Teeth-tingly sour. Bright, sharp, and powerful cranberry cocktail and black cherry jello, nutmeg, and a hint of dry anise.

T - Whoa, one of the sourest beers I have ever had. This is definitely a sip-and-brace-for-impact beer (although it numbs your palate relatively quickly). Black cherry jello concentrate, tart cranberry sauce, wet oak, lemon, and apple cider vinegar.

M - Hard to get a grip on mouthfeel while your face is imploding, but the bere is slightly slick with a light frame.

O - The overpowering acidity lacks the balance that could have come from brighter carbonation, a thicker body, or a deeper flavor profile.
