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.

Thank to STLWill for sharing this gem - Pours reddish brown with a small tan head. The aroma has deep roasty malt, vinegar sourness, dark cherries and a cleaner smell. It has a medium / full body with a sharpness and light carbonation. The flavor starts with lush cherries, mild tartness and toasty malt. Then it gets much more sour and bracing along with vanilla/oak, vinegar and citrus. The finish is sharp and biting, but still shows lush cherries. Really nice.

Bottle shared by alexsdad06. Poured a hazy reddish brown color with an average frothy off-white head with very good lacing. Moderate to heavy tart berry fruit and sour yeast aroma. Copious body and a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium to heavy sour & tart flavor with a medium to heavy tart & sour finish of moderate to long duration. This is a complex solid beer.

750 ml bottle shared with the group. Pours brown with a small beige head. The aroma is tart, sour cherries, additional fruits, oak, and some caramel malts. The flavor has a great drinkable tart character, sour cherry, oak, caramel, brown sugar with a light funk. Tends to the dry side. I thought the original Oude Tart had a cherry hint, so this makes sense. Definitely would have this again.

750ml bottle, big thanks to alexsdad06 for sharing. Hazy brown, slight red color. Thin ring of off-white head. Awesome big puckering sour cherry aroma, touch of chocolate, good oakiness. Nice bigger sourness, light dry finish, mild slick, light to moderate sweet. Bigger body, lighter carbonation, mildly slick. Delicious sour cherry brown ale.

750 ml bottle to taster (shared by alexsdad06). Looks good; a cloudy amberish brown with light caramel head that steadily dissipates into lacing. Smells mildly sour with a notable semi-sweet Flanders cherry presence. Tastes like it smells, but more sour, with a medium-bodied mouthfeel. Enjoyable.

Poured from a 2013 vintage bottle. Aroma has a nice, bright cherry note to it with some tart cherries as well. Some dark fruit notes and berries with light oak character. Moderate malt notes of toasted bread, dark caramel and toffee. Pours a darkish brown with some reddish hues and a thick, light mocha head that exhibits good retention as it recedes to the edges where it lingers. Flavor is fairly acidic though with a touch of sweetness at first. Moderate cherry notes that help add some sweetness but also some acidic complexity. Light oak notes. Moderate dark fruit and berry character. Light malt notes of toasted bread, dark caramel and toffee. A hint of the alcohol. Mouthfeel is medium bodied with medium carbonation. Low astringency and medium low alcohol warmth. Overall, a pretty decent beer and the cherry character is really nice. Good malt notes and dark fruit character from the yeast. Nice, light oak.

Bottle shared by Edgar. Thanks! Pours a murky dark brown with a mild head that is short lived. The aroma is tart cherries mainly. The taste is solid with mild tartness and the second half is mostly tart cherries. Not too acidic. Just right mouth and carbonation. Light body. I liked it more than the regular Oude Tart.

Bacterial (1829) - Twin Cities, Minnesota, USA - DEC 9, 2014
Murky dark red pour with a tinge of brown to it, slight off-white head. Awesome nose, cherry, oak and just a hint of barnyard. Quite sour (almost abrasively so), as the base beer is but with some extra tart cherry that kicks in on the finish.
