COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Two year old Nantucket Flemish-style red aged on whole sour cherries for 10 months. This is similar to sipping the idea of what a "cherry" is... UNREAL.

At dark suds. Nice red color, heavy cherry nose. Big cherry up front, nothing but acetic acid in the finish. Vinegar kills this for me.

Bottle shared by Radarsock. Thanks, Andrew! Pours orange red with an off white head. Aroma is dark cherry, acetic. Taste is slighly sweet cherry up front, leading to strong lemon cherry tart. Lingering pucker.

tectactoe (1851) - Michigan, USA - JUN 24, 2014
UPDATED: JUN 25, 2014 Bottle: Thanks, Ed. 2008 bottle, I think. Dingy, muddled copper with a fizzly, beige head. Aroma of sour cherry, cherry skins, light vinegar, some acetic notes, lactobacillus just outside the realm of "yogurt-y", just a little touch of musty wood & hay in the finish. Taste has a larger damp oak presence up front; light vanilla, likely from the barrel, also a mild cinnamon draw, likely from the fruit. Sour & dry cherry skins with vinegar & lactic acid whetting the edges. Sourness grows over time & leads to a dry oak finish. Very nice sour kriek!

Bottle at home with friends, courtesy of Dave. Thanks man. Pour is murky brown amber with a small tan head and good lacing. Tangy, sweet fruity, spice, red wine vinegar, oaky, caramelly, toffee, and lactic aroma. Taste is ripe cherries, graham crackers, vanilla, pie crust, tangy, woody, and raspberry skins with a lightly tart finish. Medium body with soft-medium carbonation. Nice cherry pie sour.

Tasting at Bruce’s pad. Thanks to Bruce for this one. Hazy red - amber beer, small pale cream colour head. Palate is light and crispy. Nice level of sourness, ie not too much. Zippy cherry and a touch of lemon. Finishes dry refreshing.

Bottle split at Bruce’s pad, thanks to our host with the most, 12/06/14. Hazed chestnut brown with reddish hues topped with a moderately sized light beige swirl. Nose is tarte cherries, fruit balsams, light acidic waftings, straw, dank berry woodness. Taste comprises tarte cherry skins, berry fruit balsamics, mild acidity, straw, wooden rinse. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, drying close. Nice sour, good balance.

Leighton (10960) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 12, 2014
Bottle shared in London - thanks to Bruce. Pours murky purple with a frothy, off-white head. Good, earthy cherry nose, light funk, grape skin. Light to medium sweet flavor with crisp, zippy sour berries, cherry, light acidic, slight metal. Light bodied with spritzy carbonation. Clean finish with background jammy sweetness, nice ripe, tart cherries, a bit of tongue-blister sour bite, slight alcohol warmth. Well rounded, very nice.
