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.

2012 vintage poured into a tulip glass

A- pours a deep ruby brown color with a small fizzy off-white head that reduces to a ring around the edge, leaving nothing behind

S- mouth watering balsamic vinegar aroma gives fruity notes of ripe pear, tart cherry, red apple, red grape, earth, toasted oak

T- tart balsamic vinegar pucker up front leads to flavor of wild sour purple grapes, quickly followed by flavors of red apple, pear, sour berry, toasted oak. Puckering finish with more red fruit on the linger

M- medium body with low carbonation leads to a foamy mouthfeel and a bone dry puckering finish

O- this rivals many of the best Belgian example of the style, so many tart fruit flavors that mix so well with the oak barrel
