What the brewers say

“Oude Tart is a Flemish-style red ale aged in red wine barrels for 18 months. It’s pleasantly sour with hints of leather, dark fruit and toasty oak.”

What our panel thought

Aroma: “Very light sour aroma with a bit of dark fruit and cinnamon. Faint green apple and acetone, with a light malt sweetness, some wood and berry notes.”

Flavor: “Cherry sweetness accented with dark fruit and berry notes. Moder- ate acidity with some slight fusels in the finish and a strong lactic-acid character with a hint of acetic. Heavy carbonic bite, deep wood notes and a slight astringency. High sour punch up front with little malt or sweetness to support it. Slight green apple note after I let it rest on my tongue.”

Overall: “A little on the acidic side, but overall fairly balanced. Aroma is quite tame. The wood is a bit over the top, but in a fun way. Excellent, complex acid profile.”
