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.

On tap at Coffee District. Served in a Rodenbach flute. Reviewed from notes.

Appearance - Deep red. No head. No collar.

Smell - Bright acidity. Acetic. Oak. Caramel malt and some cherry-like fruitiness.

Taste - Strong sourness. A little acetic, but not overwhelming. Caramel malt. Less oak. Cherry fruits linger in the finish.

Mouthfeel - Very clean. Not too heavy, but it's malty.

Overall - This is very good for an American representation. Malty, but a nice sourness to balance it.
