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.

Bottle to glass. Pours a deep reddish brown color with a thin rim of light tan head. Aroma is dry, sweet cherry, tart. Flavor is potently tart! Makes the face pucker! But in a good way. Light cherry sweetness. Light to medium in body with a strong lingering sour. Very tasty!

DrSilverworm (5053) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAR 25, 2014
Taste from a 750ml bottle. Hazy dark red color. Thin off-white, kind of khaki head. Loose bits of lace. Wow! Very nice, big oaky sour cherry nose. Awesome big sour taste, light spicy wood, big sour cherry to the aroma, and a mild funk. Light bit of cheesy creaminess. Medium to bigger body, lightly sticky. Smooth, lighter carbonation. Awesome long sour cherry aftertaste. Fantastic stuff! One of the best American krieks I’ve had in a while... Much better than expected!

ThirstyBird (1219) - Düsseldorf, GERMANY - MAR 17, 2014
Pours a dirty red color with smell minimal head. The smell is oak, dull cherry, a bit of vinegar. The taste is sour cherry, hint of cinnamon with wood and a lot of dryness. Light in body with elegant carbonation.

2013 bottle drunk on 2/23/14
Dark black cherry-brownish-red body pours bright, leaving the sediment behind and a large beige head is slow to recede.
Beautifully aromatic nose is full of all kinds of tart acids. From acetic to lactic with plenty of malic fruit acids as well. Oak character and vanilla are light but notable and some lightly sweet caramel malts round out the aroma providing just a touch of sweet balance. Black pepper and cherry pit dryness linger on nicely. No alcohol or flaws. Every bit as true and authentic as the best Belgian krieks.
Tart acids and a near wine-like fruitiness wash over the palate carried on by tight, ample carbonation with a slick, lightly oily mouthfeel. Sourness builds and continues to dry the palate until a quick shot of sweet, caramel and vanilla-like maltiness softens things on the finish before more cherry meat and pit flavor lingers on. Nicely sour rendition, but the malt and barrel character are neither overdone or lacking, either. Plentiful, authentic cherries are icing on the cake. The Woods series is definitely the real deal.

Iphonephan (2697) - McLean, Virginia, USA - DEC 24, 2013
From a 75 cl bottle shared at home on Christmas eve. Pours a hazy amber with a thin off white head. Tart cherry nose. Flavors of sour cherry, white pepper and a touch of green apple. Medium bodied, low carbonation, tart, crips finish.

Beergeek23322 (2042) - Chesapeake, Virginia, USA - NOV 22, 2013
4/6/2012. 22 oz. bottle. Pours deep ruby red with a short white head. Aromas are funky from the yeast with malt and of course the cherries. Sour and tart, balanced and complex and right up there with some of the better Belgian Krieks.

750ml bottle in a tulip. Pours amber with a very small head. Aroma of cherries, a nice tartness and funkiness, plus a nice pale maltiness. Flavor the same with a nice tart, cherry finish. Average texture. A pretty good Kriek.
