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.

Reddish amber hued with a minuscule head of white foam partially covering the top of the beer. Sour aroma of tart cherries is very pungent. The mouth is highly carbonated and the intense bitterness pricks the tongue and yet there's a nice dry finish. There's definitely tart cherries and a horse blanket element in the taste.
