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 isnít 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.

On tap at the Bruery Reserve Society Initiation Party. I am not a big sour fan, especially after drinking loads of super sweet stouts all afternoon. This one was unique in that the cherries were very apparent. Had a taste of sour patch cherry flavored candies.

I had this on tap at the Brueryís Reserve Society 2011 initiation party held at the Phoenix Club. Itís a murky brown pour and the sour cherries complement the Oude Tart nicely. Very enjoyable.

Oude tart w/ cherries. on tap at the tasting room. leftover from the barrel-aged beer party... Pours a semi-opaque darker mahogonay reddish brown with a thin light beige head... Aroma of sour cherries with a mild sweetness, acidic vinegar, light acetone...Flavors are of the vinegar nature with. Sour cherries although less acidic than the original oude tart. Really smooth, semi-sweet. All good in this beer. 8/4/8/4/17

A: The pour is a murky dark reddish-brown color with a minimal khaki colored head forming. S: Lots of sour cherry notes right off the bat, as I hoped for. A bit more vinegar than I recall the regular Oude Tart having. Lots of vinous red wine notes as well. T: This one is quite sour with a moderate amount of acetic acid. Plenty of cherry flavor both in terms of the flesh and skins as well as oak, wine, and just at touch of sweetness. M: The body is medium with a moderate carbonation, dry finish, and quite puckering overall. D: Probably the best beer of the event/afternoon. The addition of cherries seemed like a natural addition to this beer, and they certainly were.

Had this on tap at The Bruery under the "Thanksgiving leftovers" section. Was amazed to show up and see this, Cherry Chocolate Rain, -bal aged Coton, and Sour Rugbrod with lingonberries all on tap. Mega score. I couldnít help but get shitfaced in front of my fianceeís teetotaling parents. Thatís life I guess. This beer pours a hazy deep cherry red color with little head to speak of. Not the best appearance, but for this beer it works. The aroma is excellent, slightly acetic and tart with big cherry notes and some spices. Not too nose-burning. The flavor is excellent, almost off-the-charts. Nice malty character, with slight caramel, red berries, and a slight hint of vinegar. Huge, huge sweet and sour cherries on the finish. Like almost Wisconsin Belgian Red magnitude cherry flavor. Thereís also a great tartness to it, bretty and lactic. Nice acidic palate with low carbonation and a spicy and sour tingling to it, which I really liked. This is the best wild ale Iíve ever had from The Bruery. They really nailed it.

On draft at The Reserve Society Barrel Tasting event. Hazy murky reddish brown swampy ass head. Aroma was funky, oak, vanilla, vinegar. Taste was very sour (mouth puckering). Lower carbonation. Liked regular version better.

Tap at The Bruery. Lots of tart cherry flavors and funk. Crisp and clean with small bubbles. I liked this a lot.
