Parlez vous Francais? No? That's ok, turns out my beer this week, from Bruery Terreux is actually made in California. When I saw the bottle, I was convinced it was French, or Belgian. Nope, they are from Cali and make Flemish style beer. I was wrong on all accounts. The beer I tried is called Oude Tart. It's a Flemish Style red Ale aged in wine barrels. This is a flavor bomb of a beer. I don't drink a lot of sours, because they make my face pucker and my mouth hate me. Someone brought this one over to share at a BBQ and I will say I was pleasantly surprised. It's not someone you want a giant glass of...but it pairs really nicely with food. It's a sipper, and as I said, it's a flavor bomb. Yes it's tart, but it didn't make my face turn into a prune like some other sours do. If this style intrigues you, I'd buy the big bottle and share with some friends over a nice meal. Or as an after meal treat by the fire pit. not for the faint of heart!
