Since this is a Smokestack Series beer, I poured Tell-Tale Tart into my Smokestack glass. Fruity, candied-lemon tart aroma. Tart cherry and lemon and unripened grape flavors come at the beginning, lightly acidic. Noticeably tart but definitely subtle by "sour" standards, very approachable. In the background, a sweeter backbone adds some balance, maybe prunes or some richer fruit.
The back-and-forth, tart then sweet profile is pretty nice. Tell-Tale Tart cleanses the palate, delivers lots of interest, and I spent the entire beer trying to figure out the nuances. A "Tale of Madness!"
