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.

bytemesis (3437) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - NOV 14, 2014
Bottle. Pours clear reddish amber with no real head and no lacing. Aroma is very cherry, some oak and tobacco notes. Flavor is light tart, a bit of residual sweetness, cherries are dominant with some oak. Medium body, flat - no real carbonation left. A bit watery in the mouth.

gEUS (1242) - Linden, BELGIUM - NOV 12, 2014
Bottle, sampled with Dennoman. Pours clear reddish light amber, no head, totally flat. Aroma is quite terpentine alike and artificial cherry aromas. Light body, kirsh alike balance between sweetness and alcohol, bland flavour. Not my type of fruit beer. At all.

asheft (2549) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 31, 2014
[bottle from Bier Cellar] Slight pickle juice and balsamic vinegar aroma with black cherries, white grape, and sweet cranberry. Perhaps a faint vanilla note as well. Slightly hazy ruby under a quickly dropping off-white and light pink fizz that leaves a collar with tight beading. Flavour is a refreshing, mouth-puckering sour cherry and lemon with some light woody accents. Light body, medium to high carbonation, mouth watering finish.

weihenweizen (1826) - Charleston Area, West Virginia, USA - OCT 12, 2014
Refrigerated 75 cl brown 2013 bottle corked and capped poured into a glass. Clear red with small off-white head. Aroma is nice strong sour, medium body, low/medium carbonation, and little lacing. Taste is sour, tart cherries, lemons, some oak, and long acidic finish. Complex, pretty easy to drink (although I understand this would be too sour for some), really flavorful, really enjoy this one.

craftycarl21 (2251) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - SEP 23, 2014
750 mL bottle, shared with some buds. Deep red pour, small ring of lacing. Definitely worth noting that this is described as a Flemish Red and not a kriek, as it is dark and acidic as all get out. Definite acetic red wine vinegar mixing with deep rich cherry flavor and oaken tannin. A bit unbalanced, but I’m cool with it.

Steasy66 (962) - Minnesota, USA - SEP 15, 2014
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.

WillRunForBeer (801) - Massachusetts, USA - SEP 7, 2014
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.

750ml from DSchiller. Pours cloudy amber with a thin white head. The nose is sour fruits, salt water, vinegar. The taste is cinnamon, cherries, salted fruits and vinegar. Medium prickly mouthfeel. 4.1
