Ruby red color, little head, dry champagne like aroma, smooth fruity flavor with tart Cherry and raspberry hints. Aftertaste is a bit unusual with a unique metallic taste,, very lactic like but isn't bad. Oddly. Kind of like a Wisconsin door County fruit wine with carbonation and more complexity.

Pretty red, deep, but yet still has lots of clarity. The aroma drops both sweet and sour cherry notes, sweet probably winning.

Taste came off dry, a different kind of flanders, sweeter, but still earthy with something like mint leaves in a small way. Leather, tobacco, dirt too. Wasn't all that sour, maybe a 2 on a 1-10 scale. Still good, but wouldn't go looking for this when Oude Tart exists.

On tap into the brewery's really cool stemware. Beautiful deep dark red with a thin crown of eggshell head that slowly subsides over a couple minutes...no lacing. Lots of vinegar on the nose, a hint of tart pie cherry underneath the vinegar...ok, but nothing too great. Taste is very cherry and sweeter than expected, but not in a bad way, with a nice very modest sour edge that grows on me and develops as I sip.
