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.

tectactoe (2348) - 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.

Medium bodied, fine carbonation, drying close. Nice sour, good balance.

Leighton (11900) - 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.

Scopey (7455) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 12, 2014
Bottle thanks to Bruce. It pours hazy deep red with minimal head. The nose is tangy, sweet cherry, jammy fruits, wood and a touch of barnyard. The taste is crisp, tart, ripe cherry, cherry pie, lemon sherbet, wood, tangy, jammy, very mild acidity with a dry, lightly tart finish. Medium body and fine, prickly carbonation. Not overly sour or acidic. A very approachable and drinkable sour.

adnielsen (9481) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - MAY 17, 2014
Bottle @ home, via trade. Carbonation is pretty dull based on the cork popping. Pours a deep orange appearance with light head. Aroma is full of delicious tart pie cherries with a touch of vinegar and some wood. Definitely some caramel and brown sugar along with a really delicious pie cherry filling flavor. Carbonation is almost nonexistant. Really unfortunate on the carbonation but the beer is otherwise quite enjoyable.

Dr_Fellini (552) - Norfolk, Virginia, USA - APR 23, 2014
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 (7001) - 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!
