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.

thanks so much to stakem for sharing this with me, enjoyed chilled from the bottle in a tulip.

The color is dark tobacco with hazed clarity and thin ring of fine beads with medium brown hue. The aroma is very tart, lots of fruit aroma with a woody presence and light vanilla accent. The feel is great with tannic/lactic acid and sweet tangy fruity quality...medium carbonation with puckering dryness in the finish.

The taste is superb, very interesting how it develops with some layered stone fruit tanginess and acidity in the taste with fruit skin and slight balsamic sour woody combination of flavor with light vanilla and alcohol with lasting acidic dry finish. There is a complexity and yet drinkable quality in this unrivaled in many sour ales fruity and unique...I can't say for sure I would want to down a whole bottle to myself, but then again I would

Really well balanced sour. The cherries are sweet enough to really balance out the oude tart base, which can be too vinegar sour for me at times. Dark ruby body with a thin tan head. The scent with tart pie cherries, which is very nice. The taste is almost exactly the same. Just enough cherry to give you that tart fruit character, but the base beer still shines. Excellent and an upgrade from the Oude Tart base beer.
