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.

look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

750 mL bottle poured into a snifter.

Appearance - Deep amber. A little reddish. Small khaki head.

Smell - Oaky sharpness. Cherry. Malt.

Taste - Cherry more prominent, but still very oaky. Malty. Extremely sour, as usual from the Bruery.

Mouthfeel - Always too sour, but tolerable. Very oaky.

Overall - No one else in my group liked this except me. It's too damn sour, but it's good.

Oude Tart is one of the few Bruery beers I like, but somehow this version didn't really do anything for me. Dark ruddy brown pour with a thin, wispy head; minimal retention and lacing was not surprising. Fairly tart aroma, as would be expected, some earthy funk, notes of phenolic cherry. More of this in the taste, tart, somewhat acetic, earthy, funky, oaky, overripe cherry pulp, leather, cherry cough syrup, with a slightly tea-like herbal quality coming through. Medium body, slightly chewy mouthfeel, with a sour prickle to it. Seemed kind of like an "if it ain't broke, don't fix it" scenario to me, where they took an already decent base beer and went just a little too far. Still good, but I prefer the original.
