Beer Review #103
Tell-Tale Tart, 'a slightly sour ale' from Kansas City, Missouri based Boulevard Brewing, seems appropriate.
I try not to interject too much opinion into my reviews, but I really like -Tell-Tale Tart (name inspired by Edgar Allen Poe, in case you missed that).
As the label suggests, this is a slightly sour ale, that to these lips tastes sort of like a milder version of a Gose, with the snappy carbonation of a Brett or Wild Beer.
This beer pours a shade of deep-copper, like apple cider vinegar, with a loud, popping, effervescence that dissipates quickly.
The aroma strikes notes of cherry and apple. That green, sour apple is a primary player in the taste as well. But there is also a slight pepper Belgian yeast/ester note as well.
6.2%ABV. Tell-Tale Tart is part of the brewer's 'Smokestack Series.'
