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.

Fritz123 (1303) - Boca Raton, Florida, USA - JAN 17, 2015
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 (2194) - 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.

phaleslu (7536) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - DEC 9, 2014
750 ml bottle shared at the hotel room bottle share at Jackie-Os 9th Anniversary party weekend. Pours a hazy brown color with a beige ring for a head. Notes of sour cherries, brown sugar, balsamic vinegar, vanilla, raisins, lemon, wood, and mellow spice. Light-medium bodied, with moderate carbonation and a tart, funky mouthfeel. Drinks pretty nice.

Leveejr (109) - Dallas, Texas, USA - NOV 3, 2014
2014 bottle poured into a tulip. Pours a murky red with no head. Smell is oak, fruit leather, hint of vinegar, big tart cherries. Taste is sour cherries up front, very juicy and a little spicyness that I love in cherry beers but not too heavy. Nice carb. Very well done beer ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle... Pours murky and brown with a small, creamy, mushroom-colored head. The aroma is of black cherries accompanied by a mild component of acetone. Medium-bodied and astringent with only trace carbonation. The flavor is sour with lots of cherry goodness, but finishes raspy, coarse and Mojave dry. Bottle courtesy of biggsbowler!
