murkiest tan pour, thin white ring. Murky cherry, sand and lotion nose, Sinners 09 all over. Flavor is skunky plum, very tart, hints of clay, acetic building through experience. Warmth calms it, still singular but not so burning.

UPDATED: SEP 29, 2013 Bottle from RS membership. Aroma is sour cherries and slight almond. Flavor carries very tart cherry, toasted coconut, and full-dark sour. Palate is very good with medium carbonation, and there is no residual aftertaste. Very good sour! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle: The aroma consists of cherries, cola, light vinegar, oak, and a hint of lemon. It pours cloudy orangish-brown with a small beige head that quickly fades to a thin ring. The flavor starts with a quick dose of sweet cherries and a touch of cola. The finish has heavy sour lemon, a touch of oak, and faint cinnamon. As it warms, the cherry gets stronger. It’s medium bodied with somewhat soft carbonation. Overall, the aroma is misleading since it doesn’t smell that sour. The sourness is intense in the flavor though. I dig it.

UPDATED: APR 1, 2014 Bottle: Deep, bloody crimson and ruby, mostly opaque and a little swampier than the regular Oude Tart. The beige head lasts for a few moments before disappearing completely. Aroma is zesty cherries, very light vinegar, mild musty oak, faint tartness, and some candy-like sweetness in the tail end. Taste starts off with a quick hit of sweet cherries, then BOOM - a bum rush of sour ass cherry skins, lemon flesh, mildly acidic vinegar, faint lactic notes, and some nice oak notes. Super sour, super tart, puckering and scraping acetic vinegar. Dry, dying fruit and oak finish with a mild spice note that I can’t exactly pinpoint. Very good and amazingly sour. Had another bottle (thanks Steve) that wasn’t quite as sour as the first... but still, quite tart and amazing cherry flavor.

thome50 (1083) - Morro Bay via Orange County, California, USA - SEP 18, 2013
Bottle at George’s Bachelor Party. Pours a deep brown with tan head that is minimal. Aroma is funky to some degree and dish soap sour. Taste is more of the base oude tart with some extremely tart/sour cherry coming in at the end. The cherry doesn’t really add much here but this might be because I was looking for more sweet cherry.
