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.

A ruby crimson and brown pour, small 1/5" head on it, off white, more tan than anything. Aroma is wickedly sour dark fruit and oak. Really jumps at you.

More oak, delectable sour taste, mild brown malt notes, leather well done, dark fruit, dark cherry, plum. Geez this is amazing, is there a better Flanders? No, Cuvee des Jacobins is close, but this beer's run at the World Beer Cup and Great American Beer Fest is well deserved. Just phenomenal world class stuff. Love that you can still get this for less than $20, really makes chasing down rare stuff not worth it when this is relatively plentiful.

Bought this beer from a local bottle shop. It was flat so did not get a chance to fully evaluate. Love beers from these guys but getting sick of paying $20+ for a bottle and getting bad beers.

Burgundy red, with the smallest of heads. Mostly a film layer.

Smells like wine/grapes to me. Cherries??
The taste reminds me of this homemade Portugeuse wine(referred to as Blood), only sour and tart, with light carbonation. Dry in a good way. Balsalmic in the aftertaste. It just made me think of Bruchetta. Now im hungry.

Goes down super easy, delicious.
