Notes/Commercial Description:
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.

this is wonderful beer, it really is, but im not sure how much the cherries really add to it. i mean, the original beer has a lot of tart cherry notes in it already, but remains balanced and rather true to the flemish red tradition. this edition actually has cherries in it, and while they get lost a bit in one of the most sour beers ive ever had, they give it a gritty sort of sweetness before the acid attack on the back end. deep ruby red in color with a ton of bubbles, no problems there. the nose is sour, but doesnt show nearly the intensity of it that is about to follow. the cherries add a nice layer to the smell, tart and familiar, but they come through a bit sweeter in the taste at first. nice sour red base on the first sip, but ive oude tart enough to know that its about to get gnarly. the sourness here is perhaps the most of any beer i have ever had, in fact im pretty sure it is, it almost hurts my jaw just smelling it. the flavors are awesome for the first few sips, and i get a nice earthiness that comes along with all the cherry, but after about half a glass i cant really taste it much anymore, certainly not as well, because my taste buds have been basically scorched off my tongue by all the acid. im not complaining, i like that, but i could never take down a bottle of this without help, it would turn my guts inside out for sure. the carbonation is high, which amplifies the sourness to even a higher degree. i love this beer, but i may like the base beer better than the cherry version. it just doesnt really need them.
