COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Flemish-style red diverted into used rye whiskey barrels; 100% wood fermentation. 13 Months in used American oak rye whisky barrels with proprietary blend of micro flora have created a brilliant deep ruby/burgundy beer. Nose of cherries, vanilla, and whisky. No Fruit Used. Tastes a bit like toasted rhubarb berry cobbler. Allusions of fruit sweetness from the brettanomyces balance the slight tang of bacteria.

kramer (5095) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 28, 2011
25 oz bottle. Pours a nice brightly clear ruby red body with a small fizzy beige head that faded to a thin ring quickly. The nose is nicely traditional at first, tart and woody with some light funkiness and some sour cherry. As it warms the unique tweak of the barrel comes out a bit more with some light vanilla and whiskey. The flavor is pretty well removed from traditional Flemish Red though. Much more dry and funky than any authentic Flemish Red Iíve had. The brett has really taken hold here, itís crazy funky with almost zero acidity and just a light sour cherry tartness on the back end. Very woody with a nice vanilla undertone. Not a whole lot of whiskey influence, but that is a good thing in my book. Medium bodied, rather sturdy malt backbone, with nice fizzy efforvescent carbonation. Finishes very dry and tannic with some lingering cereal grains. Pretty enjoyable beer.

Bottle shared by Moejuck at the Jackie Oís 5th Anniversary Extravaganza. Clear red/amber pour with a medium tan head. Tart nose with caramel, grain and rye. Caramel malt flavor with tart apple and cherry character before a crisp and tart finish.

pantanap (3366) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - DEC 8, 2010
750ml bottle. Thanks to Derek for sharing... Pours a mostly transparent reddish caramel brown with a thin off-white to light beige head... Sour cherry vinegar nose with medium acidity. Fair bit of a bready rye finish... Flavors are much of the same with a mediocre level of sour cherry and an earthiness that tames things down a level. Carbonation was light to medium as is the body. 8/4/7/4/14

deyholla (6990) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - DEC 8, 2010
Bottle thanks to BrewedAwakening, shared with others. Poured clear deep amber with a red hue and a creamy brown head that dissipated slowly to the edges. Aroma has a nice combination of sour fruits and rye with a slight bit of whiskey in the backing. Flavor starts with sour fruits that mellows to a rye spiciness with a bit of vanilla in the finish.

GAManiac (1944) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - NOV 7, 2010
750mL bottle, cork and caged, listed at 6.6% on the label. Pours a very dark reddish amber with a big, short-lived cream-colored head that leaves good lacing on the way down to a thin cap. The aroma is tart fruit alongside oak, vanilla and plenty of whiskey. There is also a decent funky presence and some lactic sourness as well. The flavor is even more tart with an initial lip-puckering sourness, lactic with some vinegar, paired with some tart cherries and other dark fruits. The finish is extremely dry and oaky with a bit of whiskey burn. The mouthfeel is medium bodied, very dry with a lot of earthy funk lingering with the whiskey on the palate. Another nice effort in the Woods series from Cisco. The whiskey presence is well integrated and doesnít overpower the flavor.

cakanator (452) - South Hadley, Massachusetts, USA - OCT 20, 2010
25.4oz bottle. Pours a nice reddish hue, gave me some promise that this one was going to surprise me. Lighter cherry tart nose, some vanilla and wood, but nothing that overwhelmed. Palate is thin, tartness is a minimum, the finish is a bit meak. Iíd like to say that aging would do something to this one, its just not what I expected from a flemish-style offing. Will re-review in six months to see if anything has improved

Mora2000 (5856) - McKinney, Texas, USA - AUG 15, 2010
Thanks to Exiled for sharing this bottle. The beer pours a hazy red-brown color with a white head. The aroma is tart cherries, oak and some other dark fruits. The flavor is tart cherries, oak and vanilla. Very drinkable. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation. A good sour, but not as good as the Monomoy Kriek which was drank at the same tasting.
