Style: Flanders Red Ale

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 7.50%

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.

Poured into a tulip. Bottled on 8/5/13.

A puckerer! This is an excellent Flanders Red that is strong on sour and weaker on the fruity sweetness. It could show a bit more fruit/sweet on the palate for me, but I still rate it highly. Cranberries might be the “one-word” description. 4.5

A – A beautiful clear garnet with a rocky light reddish tan one-finger head that dissipates quickly to almost nothing. An easy swirl brings it back though. Well carbonated. 4.75

S – Lactic with some fruit. Maybe some vinegar but mainly lactic acid. Sour cherries, cranberries. Very minor vanilla notes. 4.5

T – Sour with a middle sweetness. Oranges, cherries and cranberries. No hop bitterness. 4.5

MF – A long dry finish. Medium bodied. Good carbonation is felt. 4.75
