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.

Nice deep dark color still gives off of cherry redness as the head is filled with effervescence.

The aroma is of syrupy cherry, dark dried fruits, oak and coconut.

The flavors are are tart but tempered with the cherry being less syrupy and the dried dark fruits a little more prevalent. The oak is nice and woody with a creamy coconut. There is a hidden taste throughout that has a grainy, earthy and raw character but I was remiss to verbalize it. I decided to read the label and the brewers first descriptor is leather, so he got it too.

The feel is creamy and smooth with very little carbonated bite. This does give one the feeling it needs to be sipped and not drunk done quickly.

Appearance is a deep red with nice clarity and not much head. Nose is entirely different than regular oude tart. Tons of cherry skin, dark fruit, lactobacillus, and a bit of oak. The flavor is very sour with tons of tart cherry, oak, berry skin, and tannins. Mouthfeel is highly carbonated. Overall, this is a different beast than the base beer.
