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.

I really liked this one. Thanks Dave! Awesome cherry sour and brett nose. Spicy with a medium like tart sourness, Woody and wine like with a dry finish.

Big thanks to Alex for bringing this and stopping me from trading it, now we’ve had all "woods" beers...A dark ruby red body, very deep color complexity, only a little transparent. The light pinkish head provides a thin whispy cap, not much lacing...The aroma is great as it actually reminds me of a Belgian Kriek, sweet yet tart cherries, cherry syrup, funk, musky, just good...The taste is a letdown, guess I was expecting more after such an authentic start. The front is basically devoid of flavor, then I get a bit of sour, and only a bit of cherries. Disappointing, but some nice oaky flavors come through and try to put in a save. Needs to be more sour...The feel is very dry with a nice finish...Super easy to drink. One of the best American Krieks out there. I can’t totally recommend as there are so many better Belgian options but if offered I would drink again. Wouldn’t trade for it though.

Elwood (3336) - Leesburg, Virginia, USA - MAR 13, 2011
Serving: 22 oz. bottle from State Line Liquors. It pours a deep reddish brown color with a small, off-white head. The nose is very sour cherry with a good bit of oak, some malt background and an obvious acidity. The flavor confirms what the nose thought was coming. Fairly straightforward tart cherries, oak, and slight malt vinegar note only much tarter. Light to medium body with above average carbonation leading to a medium, tart cherry finish. A decent sour ale that’s worth a try.

A-light brown center with bright red edges and a light tan colored head that is somewhat creamy in appearance. S-light oak up front with some slightly sweet vanilla, fleshy ripe cherries in the nose, maybe a hint of medicinal flavor with notes of sourness and a light acidity. T-the taste is solid following the nose. the oak is very subtle and provides notes of sugary vanilla. there are lots of fleshy cherries, decent bit of sourness and a touch of acidity in the back. the medicinal flavors seem to have gone away and this has some great robust flavors. M-lively grainy feel, very prickly on the throat with strong carbonation and rather dry finish. D-this is extremely drinkable. not overly complex but very nice flavors, the oak imparts subtlety and vanilla, the vanilla may be a hint sweet, the cherries are sour and bright and there is just a touch of acidity to it with the nice dry finish. solid stuff.
