Brewed by:
The Bruery
California, United States

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.

@ Tyler's Bottle Shop

Served a deep, auburn colored body with only a slim, bubbly covering on top. Tart, acidic fruity aroma...cherry, vinegar, brown sugar, dry floral notes, and a warm spiciness. Juicy, tart flavor: sour apple, berry, light wood, some wine, and not too much sweetness from the malt. Dry and lightly effervescent making for a super refreshing beverage. Very, very satisfying and delicious.

A: Deep brown with a copper glow. Head is a nice tight 1/2 inch. Pretty, but time to stop looking and start sniffing....

S: A whole lot of smells here. Cinnamon, nutmeg, a hint of licorice, woody dusty aromas, bright (almost lemony) floral, and stinky barnyard hay... A nostril pleasure indeed.

T: Deeply sweet and very mouth wateringly tart. Cherries, white wine fruity, leafy woods, and much more. Nice implosive drying through and beyond the finish.

M: Smooth and soft with a sharp edge. Mmmm.

O: Excellent.
