harrymel (1503) - Spokane, Washington, USA - MAR 22, 2014
Pours a cola colored ale with a fleeting brown top. Smells juicy with dark cherry and oak notes. The cherry in the nose is really nice and robust with just the right amount of fruity character mixed with earthy, tea like accents. The flavor is classic oude tart with a sour bite and flemish embodiments: acetic, cherry, cola, oak, tannins. The flavor is really nice. Medium bodied with reserved carb and an off dry finish. Really a fine beer.

Poured from bottle to glass. Murky brownish reddish hue with pinkish head that settled. Aroma is lactic, oak, cherries, caramel. Mouthfeel is nice with a medium body and crisp carbonation. Taste is sweet followed by a nice tart sourness throughout. Overall this was a great brew.

Bottle from Homer321, thanks bro! Non-shelfie bruery sour. 2014 edition, label says 8.4% abv. Pours a murky dark red with a small head, almost looks like blood. Thick. Aromas of cherry jam, oak, sour fruit. Taste is sour and off dry. Flavors of cherry, oak, some woody/spicy component that is not oak. Nicely tart. Alcohol is completely hidden. Thick mouthfeel. Medium carb. Very unique. Can taste the pie crust. Finishes quickly with a pucker. Top notch.

Keg at Beer Belly, LA. Murky dark red/brown, no head. Smells like delicious - cherries, red wine vinegar, light caramel. Light sweet darkish caramel, sour cherries, redcurrant, fruity vinegar acidity, light cheese and citrus too. Kinda short finish though. Still boss.

jredmond (5451) - Manhattan, New York, USA - SEP 16, 2014
Draft at Ginger Man with Chris and Streets. Pours a deep, murky reddish brown body with thin lacing. Aroma is fresh, puckering tart cherries and light maple and chocolate. Mouthfeel is medium and tart with notes of sour cherries up front and dominating; backing flavors of oak, light sugar, cherry candies, light cinnamon and a wonderful tart character. This was the stand-out of the event for me.

"Significantly higher pucker factor than classic Oude Tart had right out of the gate. Still very elegant yet acidic. Lots and lots of cherries and oak. Delicious every damn sip!!"
