Tarte Nouveau, 3.9% ABV, is kettle-soured with lactobacillus. This tart beer pours pale yellow with a large, dense, white head. Tarte is a refreshing brew with a dry finish that’s perfect for picnics, enjoying next to the pool, post leaf raking celebrations or snowball fight victory dances. Honestly, it’s pretty much perfect for every situation.
Originally, Tarte Nouveau debuted in March of 2013 as our Brewers’ Select offering, Zulu. Zulu was an experiment in making a new Weyerbacher sour that we could run through draft systems and our packaging equipment without risking any sort of contamination by the funky souring bacteria. Zulu not only helped pave the way to Tarte Nouveau, it also paved the way to our nineteenth anniversary beer!
