BEER INFO

Brewed by:

Style: American Wild Ale

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 7.50%

Availability: Rotating

Notes / Commercial Description:
Oude Tart is our Flemish-style sour red ale that has won back to back World Beer Cup Gold medals in that category, as well as a Great American Beer Festival gold medal for the same. This is that same beer, but now with cherries to compliment the flavors of dark fruit, leather and toasty oak that the original is so well known for. While this beer will certainly age fine, we think that fruited beers are best fresh as the fruit character can dissipate with time.

Comes out a dark brown, very thin 1/5" off white/tan head on it. Aroma smacks of good red malts, cherries, cherry wood.

Taste, wow, another absolute gem from the Oude Tart series of beers. Massively sour, tons of bright and dark cherries in this one. Leather and earth not as noticeable with the cherries in there, but still brings the complexity rife with sourness. Hides the alcohol very well too.

I will continue to buy multiples of this beer every chance I get, it is absolute world class. Acidic in a good way, this base beer already had a lot of cherry with it, this just amps up the cherry and sourness apparently.

A: poured into a tulip to a deep brown topped by a finger of tan head that fades quickly leaving no lacing
S: smells of oak, vanilla, acetic acid and sour cherries
T: taste is sour cherries, acetic acid, oak, funk, and a little vanilla. swallow is more acetic acid, oak, funk and sour cherries
M: this beer sits at the lighter side of medium on the palate with slightly prickly carbonation and a dry finish
O: This beer is incredible. The base beer is already exceptional and the sour cherries complement that with another layer of complexity.

Sour. Sour. Sour. Sour.
Smooth drinking mouth feel, abit watery but goes down easy.
Looks good in the glass, dark caramel color with tan head that sticks to the glass.
