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.

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!!"

Tasting at Chez Bruce. Hazy red - brown beer, small pale tan head. Airy palate with fine carbonation. Nice tart cherry, not too sharp. Cherry compote. Whispers of lemon and balsamic on the crisp finish. Decent.
