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.

yngwie (13693) - 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

Bottle courtesy of Jonathan from that other site, thanks! Cloudy brown color, tan edge head. Aroma of sour cherries baked into brown bread. Taste is softly sour cherries, subtle balsamic vinegar. Nice.

Leighton (11319) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 28, 2014
Bottle shared in London - big thanks to Master Mitch. Pours clear, amber-brown with a creamy tan head. Big acetic berry nose, some wood, cherry, prune. Medium sweet with good acetic burn, slight vinegar, juicy cherry, some berry pits. Medium bodied with fine, spritzy carbonation. Lightly warming finish with some more acetic burn, lightly dried berries. Nice beer. Good and sour.

bhensonb (11251) - Woodland, California, USA - FEB 17, 2014
Capped 750 shared by oRos. Pours dark ruddy brown with a transient light tan head. Aroma of lightly tart cherries. Med body or so. Flavor is grabbingly tart cherry. Could be real cooking cherries. It’s very pleasing - never losing the cherry. And finishing woodily astringent. Extremely tasty.

brokensail (11085) - Orange County, California, USA - NOV 30, 2010
A: The pour is a murky dark reddish-brown color with a minimal khaki colored head forming. S: Lots of sour cherry notes right off the bat, as I hoped for. A bit more vinegar than I recall the regular Oude Tart having. Lots of vinous red wine notes as well. T: This one is quite sour with a moderate amount of acetic acid. Plenty of cherry flavor both in terms of the flesh and skins as well as oak, wine, and just at touch of sweetness. M: The body is medium with a moderate carbonation, dry finish, and quite puckering overall. D: Probably the best beer of the event/afternoon. The addition of cherries seemed like a natural addition to this beer, and they certainly were.

Theydon_Bois (9110) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - JUN 8, 2014
Bottle split at Bruce’s pad, with thanks to Bruery fanboy Kenneth, 28/05/14. Murky reddish brown with moderate off white spotting. Nose is tarte cherries, hint of dank wood, dry rot, tangy red berries. Taste comprises bitter citric rinds, tarte cherries, nice level of acidity, oaky wash, fruit balsams, earthy, dank hay. Medium bodied, fine carbonation. Solid Flemish red - ticks all my boxes.
