The Bruery's Oude Tart, Flemish-style red ale aged in oak barrels. 7.5% ABV.
A: About a finger of slightly tan head. Fades quickly. Nice deep red, almost brown, with bright yellow in the dimple. Some slight sheeting. No lacing. And, I didn't notice until half a glass deep, but it has a slight yellow (clear from some angles) meniscus. Interesting. I don't think I've noticed that in beer before.
S: Fruity. In the raspberry/cranberry range. Slight sour funk. Slight wine must, coming out more as it warms.
T/MF: More wine must. A fairly mellow, yet present acidity. Sharper towards the tip of the tongue. Earthy funk. A slight, dry cranberry in the background. Very slight leather. I almost missed it. I feel like there's something I'm missing... A bitterness in the back. I can't place it. I'd say this a slightly more subtle example of the style, based on my minor experience.
Poured from a 750mL bottle, into a Belgian tulip glass.

Pours hazy reddish brown, with thin off white head. Smell is mostly lemon and cherry. Smell is a little underwhelming for me. Taste is fantastic: very tart and crisp. Lemon / lime, green apples, oak. Not really getting the cherries that everyone else claims. Feel is astringent, tart, dry, light and crisp. Lively carbonation.
Overall, terrific. Supremely drinkable, refreshing and tons of tartness. Along with La Folie, this is one of my favorite all time Sours.

A - Pours a rich amber brown with a luxuriously creamy head. Not much lacing.
S - Cranberry, oak, lemon peel, faint vinegar and leather. Some barnyard funk.
T - WOW. Just really creamy and rich at first, then bam -- it's on -- with tart, tangy cranberries and cherry. Lemon and lime zest intermingle with brown sugar and vanilla. Sour apples bring up the rear.
M - Absurdly soft and creamy considering how puckeringly tart this beer is. Nice long finish with an endless parade if flavors unfolding.
O - Impressive on all fronts. A truly special beer.
