In short: A very nice tart/acidic cherry beer.
How: Tap at at Extreme Beer Fest 2011
The look: Muddy light burgundy body topped by a beige ring of foam
In long: Nose is mostly sour cherries and some acidic note, not funky or anything. Taste is has a lot of sour cherries, a bit of caramel, vinegar notes, sourness and acidity level is medium, no funk or anything wild, almost no tannins presence. Body was unfortunately a bit lifeless. With a more lively body this would have been a kick-ass tart cherry beer. This was a nice exclusivity at EBF. EBF tickets at expensive, but a gym subscription is a lot more expensive so I just go to beer festivals to feel better about my body.

On tap at Extreme Beer Fest 2011. One of the first beers I had, and then came back right away. Pours a rusty reddish-brown color with a short off-white head that stays around pretty well with a good swirl or two. A bit of lacing. The nose is quite nice. It had been awhile since I’d had Oude Tart, but I recognized the base right away. Nice tartness with some cream and dark fruits plus a mild acetic presence. Good lactic presence there as well, then layered with some fresh, tart cherries. Great complexity in the nose. The flavor wasn’t quite as complex are integrated as the nose, and it was a tad bit more acid-forward without as much of the underlying cherry, oak, and fruit flavors. Still, quite good. The feel integrated the two acid components quite well and mixed things up really well with the cherries. Overall, a very nice beer that I was thrilled to see on the menu.

I liked this beer enough, but the regular Oude Tart is better. This one has that sour candy taste that is really bracing after more than a bit in the mouth. Just thinking about this beer is actually causing my mouth to hurt.

deyholla (6644) - Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, USA - MAR 19, 2011
Sampled from the tap at EBF. Poured a hazy amber with a brown head that lasted throughout the beer. Aroma full of tart cherries with some acid and a bit of backing funk. Flavor was sour cherries throughout with a bit of acidic burn in the finish but a nice funk backing rounded out the beer. Really liked the addition of the cherries to this beer.

nightrider (754) - encinitas, California, USA - JAN 11, 2011
On tap at the Reserve party and one of my favorites of the day. Dark reddish in color with some off white head. Good solid sour flavors wrapped in a medium bodied beer. Complex mix of sweet fruit ( orange, plum, lemon) with a healthy backbone of yummy sour cherries. Really good balance of tartness vs. sweetness. Could have drank much more of this for sure.

On tap at the Bruery Reserve Initiation party 2011. Pours a murky rust mahagony color with a slight tan head that collars around the glass. Nice tart cherry aroma in the nose along with slight acetone. Light mouthfeel. Well balanced comes to mind as I drink this. It really isn’t overly sweet or sour but somewhere in the middle with the sweetness of the cherries being counteracted by the tartness and vice versa. Ends with a lingering tartness. Very drinkable.
