COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Gypsy Tart is a Flanders-style brown ale with a California touch. A beer that can trace it’s origins to Great Britain, but more famously perfected in western Belgium, has been updated through our own modern techniques, delivering the sweet body and mildly tart finish that has won over numerous generations of beer drinkers in Europe. Our rendition of this wonderful beer style is perfect for both sour beer amateurs and advocates alike.

Cimbasso (1089) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 31, 2018
Sampled on draft at Pub 365 in Las Vegas. Dark brown colour, the colour of tea before milk is added. Beige head. The taste is of plums, cherry, wood and caramel. Medium sweet but with a hint of vinegar and a nice, fruity tartness. A refreshingly sour taste. An interesting example of an American sour brown beer.

750ml bottle. Poured a really murky brown color with a small slightly tan head. Got some cherry skins on the nose, light malts. Some light tartness, not really acidic. Some yeast notes. Okay.

Plum and bretta. Murky brown like swamp water pour with good head and lacing. Tangy. Good Flanders brown. Bottle.

UPDATED: JAN 6, 2018 750ml bottle .. . plum, leather, funk depending on the year .. solid mouth, low fizz .. . finish is easily spot on .. dank purple sour scrath records, usually a treat, great example of the newer american style sour browns .. . . https://youtu.be/m-ASVA5zn24?list=PLmze3lEyZ4Z3Sj9

nuplastikk (6633) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 5, 2017
Tap at Jacs. Unfiltered burgundy brown body. Somewhat soft on the palate carbonation wise, but lots of aceduc sour tones. Not the worst approximation of the style, but not that impressive either. American sour territory, limited finesse or balance. Drinkable, but not as good as Rodenbach. Leathery after awhile.

@ Gyllenbock 17-10-28: Riktig fin syrlighet med tydliga toner av bär och lite hö. Fin lång eftersmak.

daje (4554) - NORWAY - NOV 7, 2017
Bottle, december 3rd 2016. Hazy red/brown body with a small tanned head. Aroma of tart fruits and berries, sweet dark malt, lactic acid. Taste is sour, fruits and berries, with herbal notes, funk, wood. Vineous finish with a lovely lasting sweet and sour fruit finish. Very nice!

3.7
gyllenbock (10274) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - OCT 30, 2017
Bottle bought in San Diego, Feb 2017. Hazy dark amber with a small head. Quite sour with berries, citrus, caramel, hay and some grapes. Quite good.

3.6
beer-yum (2005) - Wellington, NEW ZEALAND - SEP 30, 2017
Funky aroma in a hazy red brown pour. Nicely balanced tart flavour profile makes for an excellent example of the style. Maybe missing just a little of the complexity (and subtlety) of the Belgian masters.

3.8
beton (734) - Tarnobrzeg, POLAND - SEP 12, 2017
W aromacie sporo estrów owocowych od wiśni po suszone śliwki, daktyle. Niuanse słodowe - karmel. Kwaśność na średnim poziomie, przyjemna, odświeżająca, owocowa z lekką słodyczą wiśni na podniebieniu nawiązującą nieco do sherry. Wypite w sklepie, na miejscu w kwadrans.
