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.

zizzybalubba (1406) - Elizabeth City, North Carolina, USA - JUL 5, 2012
750 mL bottle from Grape & Gourmet. The pour is reddish brown with a few bubbles but no head. Aroma of apple cider vinegar and very tart cherries. No surprises in the flavor; apple cider vinegar, tart cherry, and a plentiful amount of oak. There is no doubt this is a sour ale but the flavors are well integrated and not too overwhelming. A nicely done sour.

Sour cherry aroma. Cloudy copper, thin yellow head. Tart cherry flavor, some twigs. Straight forward and simple but quite well made. Surprisingly good.

tia (878) - Sandston, Virginia, USA - JUN 23, 2012
Bottle @ 18th RG. Pretty auburn, not much head. Nice sour smell, plus fruit almost like a vinaigrette but not as harsh. Nice sour, strong tart flavor.

Butters (3745) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - JUN 23, 2012
Sampled at the at 18th Richmond gathering. Clear reddish brown pour and ring of white head. Almost totally flat. Smells delicious and a little vinegar. Flavor is slightly acidic and good dark cherry. Just need some carbonation to take this thing to the next level.

hopscotch (9038) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - JUN 2, 2012
Bottle… Mostly clear burnt caramel ale with no head. The aroma is a fruity swirl of dark cherries, oak, cherry skins, vanilla and caramel. Medium-bodied with a milky mouthfeel and flat-as-a-pancake carbonation. The flavor is very tart – bordering on sour – fruity and a touch funky. Finishes tart and then falls sort of flat and lifeless. Very, very nice, but this one could have used some tingle to it. Bottle courtesy of ksurkin!

bhensonb (10902) - Woodland, California, USA - MAY 22, 2012
750 c&c from Half Time. Pours clear ruddy brown with a few white bubbles. Aromas of sour cherry and light oak. Near med body. Flavor is sour cooking cherry with a fair amount of oak. Smooth, mellow, cherry and sour. Finishes sour and astringent. Excellent.

marcus (6418) - Sacramento, California, USA - MAY 21, 2012
Bottle shared by bhensonb. Pours reddish brown with a tiny off-white head and a subtle cherry aroma. There is a delicate sour cherry flavor similar to Schaarbeekse with a distinct oak presence, which also accounts for the brown coloring. Very mellow.

nimbleprop (4756) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - MAY 16, 2012
750ml bottle pours a translucent, deep garnet amber with zero head. Nice aroma, not crazy, cherries, sangria, oranges, red wine, lightly medicinal, sour, cooked greens. Flavor is tart, sweet, plenty of cherries, obviously a bruin base, strawberry, a little caramel, dandelion greens, sour, hay, something lightly woody. Medium bodied, tart, lightly acidic. Not bad, but not worth the price.
