Oude Tart is our Flemish-style sour red ale that has won back to back World Beer Cup Gold medals in that category, as well as a Great American Beer Festival gold medal for the same. This is that same beer, but now with cherries to compliment the flavors of dark fruit, leather and toasty oak that the original is so well known for. While this beer will certainly age fine, we think that fruited beers are best fresh as the fruit character can dissipate with time.

A-Brown in the glass, two finger off white head that lingers and tries to give some laving.

S-Mild cherries, brown ale base is there, some oak and leather.

T-Starts with mild cherries and tartness. Bourbon. More oak than bourbon. Leathery.

M- Medium to heavier, nice carbonation.

O-The cherries add a nice layer to an already yummy beer.

Dark red color. Nice cherry flavor. A little sweet to go with the sour of the straight oude tart(with is a great beer on its own)! A little red wine vinegar tang in the background. Aroma is excellent. Complex with red fruits, some sweet, some sour.

2013 bottle. Cherry had fallen off a bit, slightly vinegar-y, but as the glass sat exposed the cherry flavor intensified nicely.

2013. pour dark reddish brown, murky, some sticky light brown head. smell vinous red wine bordering on vinegar. taste tart cherry, red wine vinegar, oaky, tannins, leather. sour and sweet with candi sugar mixed in with tart fruit, sticky mouthfeel, some carbonation. hard to get through an 8 ounce pour. wanted more fruit, less vinegar, wondering if this would be better fresh.
