tectactoe (1716) - Michigan, USA - SEP 20, 2013
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.

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.

yngwie (13351) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - AUG 11, 2013
Bottle at the taproom. An unclear, amber to brown beer with a rim of light beige bubbles. Cherries, some faint almonds, and lemony, brett-ish aroma. Some roasted hints, vaguely. Cherry, almond notes, with tart, lemony sourness and a touch of caramel roasted hints. Full body, semi sweet, nice carbonation. Lasting finish. A true beauty. 130811

GT2 (8372) - San Diego County, California, USA - JUN 30, 2013
Dark, murky red amber pour. Low carbonation. Fine for this style. Nose is heavy black cherry, red wine, vanilla, oak. Taste is lemon citric, pretty much all citric acid- needs some sweet, chunky black cherry balance. Some mild butyric acid in finish gives a hot, abrasive bile/stomach acid note.

JK (4401) - St. Louis Park, Minnesota, USA - NOV 27, 2012
GABF 2012, Friday. A simple beer that does what it does very well. Lots of cherry in the flavor and aroma, combined with a lightly acidic yeast aroma and sour flavor. Light pink color.
