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.

tom10101 (4982) - Quebec, CANADA - MAR 11, 2016
Bottle (750 ml) shared at tasting. Hazy pinkish-red with a small white head leaving little to no lacing. Flavors of cherries cough syrup (dominant), oak, a bit of brown sugar and mild spiciness. Taste is quite acidic but the oak helps to balance it a bit. No sweetness here despite the cough syrup flavor. Medium body. Medium carbonation. Dry and oaky, Puckering. Unbalanced like many american sours with an intense acidic bite when there’s a bit of age on the bottle (like for this one) but I liked the flavor profile.

mathieuc (3109) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 8, 2016
Pours a cloudy brown with no head and no lacing. Nose is of cherries and vinegar. Taste is quite acidic and loaded with more juicy black cherries and vinegar. A bit harsh, really, highly puckering. Body is light to medium and carbonation moderate. Tiresome.

SlovakSniper (4812) - Candiac, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 6, 2016
J’aime bien ce nez de cerises, de massepain, de vanille avec cette charge acétique contrôlée. J’ai cependant plus de misère lorsque ces saveurs se chargent de toute cette acidité et que tout devient ainsi très sûre. Corps en bonne position. Finale sèche à l’os.

HeadyDE (703) - Delaware, USA - JAN 2, 2016
Bomber poured many ways pre NYE..bottle from 2013..pours a vinous color with an unreal sour cherry aroma..nose is complex, tart, earthy, sour..all in one..mouthfeel is very complex and the tart cherries shine through..bit of pucker action from the fruit..but is kept in check..the wood adds depth..this is a nice take on the style and was enjoyed by all who sampled..best offering I can remember having from this outfit..
